    I’ve been trying to wiggle a path and found out that masks can’t be wiggled. I looked online and according to these forums the script: “maskPointsExpression.jsx” would be perfect, unfortunately the link goes to a 404 page and I can’t seem to find the file anywhere. Would anyone happen to have this script or a link to something like it? Here’s the orignal post. I really could use it. Thanks

    Actually, it’s possible now to wiggle a path. Something like this should work:


    freq = 1;
    amp = 20;

    p = thisProperty;
    pts = p.points();
    newPts = [];
    for (i = 0; i < pts.length; i++){
    seedRandom(i,true);
    w = position.wiggle(freq,amp) - position;
    newPts.push([pts[i][0] + w[0],pts[i][1] + w[1]]);
    }
    p.createPath(newPts,p.inTangents(),p.outTangents(),p.isClosed())

    Note that it doesn’t affect the tangents. If you wanted to keep those auto aligned, it would be considerably more work.
