Slow, Random Y value?
on Jun 19, 2017 at 4:59:10 pm


I've been searching around for a few days hoping to find the answer for this. Here's what I'm trying to do:

I have a line with a CC Light Sweep applied and I would like the Y value of the center to increase and decrease slowly and randomly. The effect I'm going for is to have the light go from one end to the other to represent information passing back and forth between two points. From there I want to apply the effect to other lines within the same hexagonal shape, then duplicate the entire shape to create a network look. But each line within each shape needs to be randomized. Maybe there's a better way?

I hope that makes sense! I've looked through other posts and tried various expressions for random motion and wiggle, but none of them quite do what I need them too.

Thanks in advance!
