    Hello all.

    I have a question about how to create an expression to make this animation:

    act more like a “swarm” of floating bubbles. As it stands right now, I have painstakingly set the beginning and end position for each circle, then pulled a camera back through the field of circles.

    The problem is, I want it to be more organic. I want things to swirl, wiggle smoothly, etc, almost like a flock of birds, but still have it end with the “thrive” logo.

    Any recommendations?

    Well, if you’ve allready set everything up, just add wiggles to position and scale, and then decrease all wiggle-amplitudes by animating a linked slider.

    do a search for wiggle slider and you’ll find a ton of examples.
