I worked at a job that required A LOT of the same style animations to be applied over A LOT of different projects.  In the attempt to eliminate repetitive easy ease key frames and playing with the speed graphs, I created a collection of simple presets and made 9 pseudo plugin scripts.  I also had to animate dollars, cents, and percentages.  So, again, quick presets/expressions to add to layers aimed to get y’all up and running quickly.  Hopefully they help!

These were created using After Effects 2020

(Windows) My Documents\Adobe\After Effects <version>\User Presets\

CURSING TEXT

So, you need to have text animate on the screen simulating a typing action?  Need a blank blinking cursor? Yer boy gotcha!  I will say that 0-100 can be sensitive.  As you can see in the example, it only took 12 points to animate the entire string of text.  Handy tip: The Typing Text relates to the number of characters in the string of text, including spacing. 

FADED

Here’s a simple little preset that FADES IN and OUT based on the duration of the layer.  Specify how many frame you want the fade to last and trim that bad boy to desired length!
