If the Wiggle expression in Ae is a little too standard for your tastes, you can change things up by modifying it a bit. Mikey Borup shows how you can add a simple random generator in place of the frequency and amplitude values of the Wiggle expression.

if you want to add more excitement to your wiggle expression. then try this easy technique.

This will draw between the range of two set numbers. So instead of having the wiggle read “wiggle(10,20)” you can replace the frequency and amplitude numbers with “random” to look like “wiggle(random(1,20),random(50,100))”.

This will make After Effects choose between the two numbers using the nested random expression.
