The Wiggle tool is used to shake the camera.
- [Instructor] Because this is such a dramatic scene,…it might be a good idea…to have a little bit of a camera shake.…So let's see how After Effects can help us do this.…So we don't want to do this camera shake…in the main composition because there're too many layers.…So it's the kinda thing that we do on the outer comp,…or the one that nests all of that inside it.…So that's the 060_robots 2 comp.…So we could set a bunch of keyframes…and manually move the camera, that's one way of doing it.…But there is a way of doing it through a script…and it's fairly simply.…
So first things I'm gonna do is to change the Preview mode…to Quarter so it's a bit quicker.…And let's go to the layer and hit P for Position.…Now hold down Alt or Option and click on the stopwatch.…And it's just given us…a script window that we can type into.…So in here type a very simple command: wiggle,…space, open bracket,…five,…comma,…20, close bracket.…That's it, it's really easy.…Click off.…
And as you can see, now we have a camera shake.…So what this means is the five represents…
