This tutorial will show you how to fix the issue of the animation stopping after a certain amount of time when using using the Time Expression + Turbulent Displace in Adobe After Effects CC 2023.

This fix will work for the Hand-Drawn Effect or anytime you are using the Time Expression on the Evolution Property of Turbulent Express (such as Line Boil Effect) and the animation stops before the end of the Timeline

The Issue:
