Express Yourself

This lesson covers the Wiggle and LoopOut expressions I covered in class, as well as a few additional expressions (including a way to control expressions with keyframes).

Here’s the exact way you need to type the expressions used in the above video:

  • wiggle(6,30)
  • time*360
  • loopOut()

Change the numbers in the above examples to suit your need.

In addition, here is the text file to copy and paste the “bounce” expression into any keyframed parameter.
