Useful Collection of Resources for After Effects Expressions

Expressions help you a long way, when you want to avoid creating tens or hundreds of keyframes by hand. You can create relationships between layer properties and use one property’s key frames to dynamically animate other layers.

Expressions are based on the standard JavaScript language, but knowledge of JavaScript is not essential to use expressions. You can also create expressions by using the pick whip or by copying simple examples and modifying them as per your needs.
