Coming back to my original question ... is there any way to index a layer with a precomposed animated element

Consider using this plug-in which will do what you need and give you full control plus random values

Ever since I first saw this tutorial (before the advent of 3DExtruder script), I used the index expression in a few projects to extrude static layers to get 3D without using Shatter plugin. But now I would like to know how I can have layers extrude but randomly rotate along Z-axis. I decided to try it. So I put a footage element (like that animated targeting thing that goes round in a HUD), followed all steps to create indexed layers and applying random wiggle on Z-axis of each layer; but when I scaled in Z in the parent comp, although the extrusion worked. the layers' rotation still remain fixed. Any idea what needs to be done?

Eran, many thanks for your extremely impressive and instructive tutorial. Your step by step explanations are very clear and easy to follow - even when extending my comfort zone in AE. Nice sense of humour too!!

Hands Up is so entertaining and informative, many thanks for sharing your amazing skills and impressive knowledge... BTW - Is there a way to capture a U Tube Video and convert it to a movie clip? I've been told no, but I keep searching.
