wiggle() and valueAtTime()
on Sep 3, 2018 at 11:51:42 am

i'm trying to copy and 'delay' motion of one layer and apply it to another layer.
the first layer has wiggle() on position.
but when i try to use valueAtTime on the second layer linking to wiggling position property of the first layer, the expression seems to return static number instead of wiggling one.

Any ideas how can i fix it?

You must have set something up wrong. An expression like this should work fine (unless there's more to the story):

thisComp.layer("Layer 1").transform.position.valueAtTime(time - 0.25)
