Random Shape Scale Expression

Hi there,

I need to animate scale multiple shapes randomly from 0 to 100%, I cannot find any tutorial. I need something exactly like this:

(it will download a gif with the animation, be sure to check that the url is a safe domain. Sorry I have no other way of embed it)

It comes from here: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/random-expression-after-effects (first gif on page)

Thank you!

Play around with this:


seedRandom(index,true);
tStart = 2;
dur = .8;

myStart = random(tStart);
t = time - myStart;
if (t < .5*dur)
ease(t,0,.5*dur,[0,0],[120,120])
else
ease(t,.5*dur,dur,[120,120],[100,100]);
