For those familiar with TweenMachine plugin for Maya, or even the Breakdowner in Blender, it is a very handy tool that allows you to insert a new keyframe between two poses and blend between them with a slider.

For example, if I have pose A and pose B, I can insert a breakdown pose between them.
If the slider is -100%, it'd be equal to pose A. If it's 100% it'd be same as pose B. Any value in-between just blends between the poses.
(I think that in Blender you can even go like 120%, so it actually overshoots the values for each parameter)

For those who likes to block characters with stepped keyframes, it's a must have.

Is this something feasible to implement in After Effects? I have no idea of its limitations under the hood.

Cheers!

That should be native in Ae ;)

It's totally feasible and will be in Duik Bassel.3 if you post the feature request on Github: https://github.com/Rainbox-dev/DuAEF_Du ... eenMachine

Thanks!
