Applying the After Effects wiggle in one direction only

The wiggle After Effects expression really is great, but sometimes you only need to wiggle one axis only, and that's why we built the jiggle script for After Effects. We wanted a way of quickly saying: "After Effects Wiggle Only Y" or "Wiggle X axis only" without having to remember any expressions or type a lot of code out!

To wiggle Y only:

The jiggle script makes it super easy, all you need to do to wiggle Y only is:

  1. Select the layer position
  2. Check only the Y box in the script panel (uncheck the others if they're checked)
  3. Press the Jiggle button!

To wiggle X only:

Again the jiggle script makes it super easy, it's the same process as before with a slight difference:

  1. Select the layer position
  2. Check only the X box in the script panel
  3. Press the Jiggle button!

The script takes care of everything for you and applies the wiggle expression to one axis only creating a wiggle in one direction only.

No more searching online for "After Effects wiggle expression y axis only" to try and remember how to do it, the Jiggle script takes care of everything for you.

Works across all values in After Effects, if the value only has one parameter Jiggle will apply a normal After Effects wiggle expression for you, saving you even more time!

Wiggle frequency and magnitude

As with the main wiggle After Effects expression, Jiggle has two values: Frequency (how many times per second), and Magnitude (the amount to move).

Adjust these values to change the speed or size of the jiggle!
