Wiggliness

Character Animator has parameters to control the intensity and location of every control point. Wiggliness should really be scaled from concrete to Jell-O.

Face Tracker

In the After Effects Face Tracker, it can automatically parse and place control points, with user-controlled precision, for applying effects across frames.

Project Candy real-time view

The app has a split view that shows you the original image and palette as you apply it to a video, and lets you play with the color choices, saturation and midtone colors.
