Wiggle Transform Tips

A video tutorial on using this new feature in AE CS4.

A small but very useful feature slipped into After Effects CS4 was a new Wiggle Transform operator for Shape Layers. When used by itself, it allows the user to automatically animate the anchor point, position, rotation, and scale of a layer without having to use expressions or animation presets; when used in conjunction with the Repeater shape layer operator, it enables the creation of writhing, pulsing, wiggling masses of shapes. However, there are a few tricks involved in getting it to do exactly what you want – so we created a video outlining these tricks as well as other related tips. Click the Play Video link below to watch it.
