This wiggle expression allows to set the parameters of the wiggle in both dimensions separately. Having separate parameters for X and Y dimension allows you, for example, to wiggle twice as fast or twice as much up and down (Y) than left to right (X). You can use this also to wiggle only in X or only in Y direction: Just set the amplitude X to 0 to make it wiggle only in Y direction. If you want to wiggle only in one direction, you should also take a look at the Directional Wiggle iExpression.

  • Frequency

    number of wiggles per second (i.e. how fast it wiggles)

  • Amplitude

    maximal size of the wiggle (i.e. how much it wiggles)

  • Advanced

    number of octaves of noise to add together. The more octaves the more detail is in the wiggle.

    Amplitude Multiply

    controls how fast the harmonics drop off
