Hey All,

So I've hand animated this really awesome blink and a double blink in AFX as a solid layer with a mask.

What I'm wondering is how I can get randomly timed playback of this layer/precomp so that my characters can just blink randomly in this movie. If this was flash I know exactly how I'd do, but since I'm in AFX I'm not sure how to make sure it play the whole animation without jumping in in the middle and how to control the randomness of time between blink.

Let me know what you think.

How good are you at expressions? It sounds like they could be handy in your case:
