This bad boy has been about a year in the making. Mainly, me making all the mistakes and troubleshooting. I focused a lot on trying to learn how to code and making my own dockable script panel. The MAKE IT BOUNCE Ultimate Script is what I finally came up with. Since I use these styles of animations a lot (more so in the past), I figured I’d make something to help speed up a lot of repetitive, easy-ease, and graph editing.

The script adds an inertia bounce to your animations either by Composition level (adjustment layer) or individual layer level. You can apply it to the POSITION, SCALE, ROTATION, OPACITY, or ANCHOR of the layer/composition. It attaches corresponding sliders in the EFFECT CONTROLS to adjust the AMPLITUDE, FREQUENCY, and DECAY of the animation to suit your needs.

Keyframe it, and you’re on your way. If you choose the “Composition” level of applying the script, pick whip the layer to the Physics Adjustment layer.

This has been tested in After Effects 2020 only.  But shouldn’t give you any issues if you’re on a different version.
