Firstly: have you downloaded it yet?

Fortunately this is not an infomercial and it’s not too late. You can grab it here.

You have? Well, let’s dive in. Hold my hand.

Gyorfi Szilard has very kindly put together a comprehensive screencast guide to installing Ease and Wizz on Windows Vista. If you’re on Windows, I encourage you to check it out. Otherwise, cross-platform instructions are below.

  1. Open the After Effects preferences. Check that “Allow Scripts to Write Files and Access Network” is enabled.

  2. Navigate to the After Effects Scripts folder. On my Mac it’s here:

     /Applications/Adobe After Effects CC/Scripts/

    On Windows:

     C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC\Support Files\Scripts\
  3. Extract the zip archive into the “ScriptUI Panels” folder. It should look something like this:

  4. Relaunch After Effects. There should be a new item under the Windows menu, right at the bottom: “Ease and Wizz.jsx”. When you select this item, a new panel should appear. You can dock it with some other panels, wherever’s convenient.

  5. Create a new comp and put something in there (shape layer, bitmap, solid etc.). Animate one of its properties, such as position or scale. With at least one keyframe selected, select the “Apply” button on the Ease and Wizz palette.
