How to Use Ease and Wizz for After Effects
To use Ease and Wizz for After Effects, you need to have some keyframes in your timeline that you want to apply the easing expressions to. You can select one or more layers or properties that have keyframes, or select all keyframes in your composition by pressing Ctrl+A (Windows) or Command+A (Mac).
Then, open the Ease and Wizz panel from the Window menu or by pressing Ctrl+F12 (Windows) or Command+F12 (Mac). You will see a list of easing types that you can choose from, such as InOut, OutIn, In, Out, Bounce, Elastic, ExpoScale etc. Each easing type has a different effect on how your animation starts and ends.
You can also adjust some settings for each easing type, such as amplitude, frequency, decay etc. These settings will affect how much your animation bounces, stretches, or overshoots. You can experiment with different values until you find the ones that suit your animation best.
Once you have chosen an easing type and adjusted the settings, simply click on the \"Apply\" button at the bottom of the panel. This will add an expression to your selected keyframes that will override their default interpolation. You can preview your animation by pressing spacebar or clicking on the play button in the preview panel.
If you want to remove the expression from your keyframes, you can click on the \"Remove\" button at the bottom of the panel. This will restore your keyframes to their original interpolation.
