Applying 'Wiggle' on a small segment?
on Sep 24, 2010 at 6:48:39 am

Hi Guys,

I'm a novice at AE & need to apply a 'wiggle expression' to a Camera linked to Null. My comp's total duration is 15sec long but i wanna apply it just for 3 Seconds somewhere in between. Now my question is:

- How to apply this expression.?
- On which layer (null or camera)?

I would really be thankful if you can explain me with example.

Regards
Andy

EDIT:

Ok I'm using - wiggle (5,15) - on null object & its working fine but i want it to start from 5 second onwards & stop at 8 second. Can someone pls write me an expression.

Thanks

Apply a slider Expression Control effect to your null. Tie one of your wiggle expression parameters to the slider's value. Keyframe the slider's value from 0 to whatever works for you.

or use

if (time > 5 && time < 8) //wiggles btw 5-8 secs
{
wiggle (5,15)
}
else
{
transform.position
}

Hi there Andy.

Since I can remember thereĀ“s a section on AE help that countains expression exemples and one of them seem to be exactly what you need.
