I don't quite get what you are trying to say... Can you be more specific or point to an example?

Sometimes you get the most interesting effects by brute force; you set hold keyframes for the opacity and figure out the placement to give an organic or random feel. Wiggle will sort of do that. But learning how manipulate keyframes is fundamental and should come before learning scripts and expressions unless, of course, you already have a background in such things. I do not. My background is AEv2.0.

open opacity alt click the stopwatch, type in wiggle(12,100)

you can change those numbers to whatever you like.  100 being the opacity, and 12 being the speed of the flicker.
