I’m trying to create a random wiggly line that starts as a straight line and increases in amplitude over time.
The lightning effect is what I want but when I keyframe the amplitude parameter from 0 to 50 nothing happens, is there a bug with the lightning effect or am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to produce this effect.
Eeep, just loaded up AE and had a look. Mine works fine. I turned everything to 0, segments only goes down too 3 and when I adjusted the AMP it started moving the middle point.
Have you tried scribble? You can do the same effect and have more control (you can even keep it still) and you can curve the line if you wanted. Scribble is mask driven so draw your line, and then take it from there .. Hope that helps.
