Scripting language in After Effects
The Scripting language in After Effects is a highly powerful tool that allows you to accomplish anything in After Effects.
Unlike expressions, which work only on a single layer, scripts can act on many layers and many different features of the application.

Scripting language in After Effects is used for interaction with extensions.
A script can control the speed of a transition or read and apply key curves.

Scripts also help you automate tasks such as adjusting the influence or speed of an object.
Scripting language in After Effects lets you automate entire systems.
Expressions can link and offset elements by time, or many other variables.
