 Detailed wiggle expression for 2 dimensions on Jul 22, 2018 at 10:27:17 pm

Hi,
;
Here is a great detailed wiggle expression I found on Creative Cow and written by Darby Edelen.

It's great, many different paramaters to work with BUT I can't find a way to make it work with a 2D Position value [x,y] (each dimension.
I'm not an expert, and did try for half an hour but well... No luck. If someone will be kind enough to show me, this would be greatly appreciated.

Have a nice evening!

```f = 2; a = 4; exp = 3; sign = 1; w = wiggle(f,1) - value; if((w &lt; 0)&&!(exp % 2)) sign = -1; (sign * a * Math.pow(w, exp)) + value;```

I'm not sure what it does, but I'd try something like this:

``` f = 2; a = 4; exp = 3; w = wiggle(f,1) - value; sign = 1; if((w[0] < 0)&&!(exp % 2)) sign = -1; x = (sign * a * Math.pow(w[0], exp)); sign = 1; if((w[1] < 0)&&!(exp % 2)) sign = -1; y = (sign * a * Math.pow(w[1], exp)); [x,y] + value ```
