Expression for Creating Wiggle with Ease:

freq=.5; //frequency: fill in or tie to a slider

amp=30;//amplitude: fill in or tie to a slider

octaves=1;//default value

amp_mult=0.5;//default value

period=1/freq; //time taken for each wiggle move

pCount=Math.floor(time/period); //number of wiggles performed so far

sTime=pCount*period; //time when current wiggle begins

eTime=pCount*period+period; //time when current wiggle ends

p1=wiggle(freq, amp, octaves, amp_mult, sTime); //start position of current wiggle

p2=wiggle(freq, amp, octaves, amp_mult, eTime); //end position of current wiggle

ease(time, sTime, eTime, p1, p2); //ease the wiggle

Expression for Linking a flare to a Parented Null:

thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).toComp([0,0,0])
