    Hi there. I have a model of a Spitfire which has a distance xpresso rig, here is what I have now:

    (my Output Upper is at 1000 because the plane moved quite slow so I ramped it up a little)

    My problem is when I add a vibrate tag to simulate the shake of a plane during flight, the plane starts to do backflips and spin randomly as I increase the distance. I’m guessing the vibrate tag is conflicting with the xpresso. On the vibrate tag, I have rotation and position turned on. The vibrate tag is needed, but if I have to delete the tag,could someone tell me an xpresso rig that can randomise its position and rotation? Thanks.

    Using Xpresso I believe you would add or multiply a noise node into the position, but personally I’d keep it simple and use Mograph effectors in deformer mode to do this:
