How to keyframe a wiggle in Adobe After Effects

This is a common question I see all the time on the forums.  The Wiggle expression is really useful, but there are plenty of times when you want it to start, then fade down or vice versa.  This quick tutorial shows you a really simple way to control the Wiggle values using the Expression Controls effects.

The tutorial also includes how to use the Transform effect so that you can save a Fading (reducing) Wiggle as a preset

Wiggle Expression:

wiggle(frequency,amplitude)

which would be used like:

wiggle(5,150);
