    Positional keyframes and Wiggle expression

    karlm83211502

      Hi, let me explain my problem;

       

      I have a 5000x5000 px .PNG that I want to show a bit at a time in a1920x1080 comp.

       

      The .png layer moves left by x-amount and holds it's position, then left again, holds, then moves diagonally left and down. The movement repeats until the entire .png has been revealed a piece at a time. It's supposed to mimic the movement of the eyes scanning left-left-down and left-etc when reading a graphic novel. The 'hold' is the eyes absorbing the information within the comic frame before sweeping left.

       

      That bit's fine. But I want to add a wiggle expression to mimic the random, slightly unsteady movements of the eyes and human body (think 'handheld' aesthetic in movies).

       

      How do I add the wiggle when I already have positional keyframes in place?

       

      I tried precomposing the layer and adding the wiggle to the original layer and precomp' but neither method worked.

       

      Thanks,
