Learn how to add great looking CAMERA SHAKE to your explosion or destruction effects in Adobe After Effects!
A little bit of camera shake can go a long way in adding some realism to any impact or destruction effects in your videos. It simply adds the feeling that the camera is shaking from the impact of the effect.
This technique is very simple to do by using the wiggle([frequency], [strength]) expression. Wiggle randomly alters the position of your footage by a certain amount.
You can link your wiggle expression to a slider expression control to gain full control over the strength of the wiggle expression and then keyframe the slider value to kick in just when you want the camera shake to occur.
