So i had an idea for a plugin, someone tell me if it exists, or maybe someone would know how to rig it with expressions, i can only take it so far myself. So the Idea:

To have Multiple anchor points on any given layer, just put where you want, then have check boxes to turn on and off to activate one point at a time. That obviously has some uses in itself, and there may be something out there like that. But where i get stuck, and what would take this from a utility to a cool effect, is if we could replace the check boxes with Influence Sliders, 0-100 obviously. Just imagine putting time*whatever on a rotation, and randomly scrubbing the influence of, lets say 3 different anchor points just offset from each other. So the three would average out at %50, maybe, and give you all of the variation of ranges in between.

Anyone seen anything like this? Or want to have some fun figuring it out? Dan? lol

Thanks :)

Really? What did you come up with? I gave it a lot of thought, but came up empty.
