Text Bounce and Squeeze

Hello everyone. I'm trying to achieve this effect, especially the yellow text:



May some expression be involved?

I believe there are scale, rotation, position and tracking properties being animated, and probably this text layer is parented to the speech bubble, but I can't get quite there.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

It could be the wiggle effect

Looks like what is happening is over shoot. When I do this I use a control layer, since I'm usually working on multiple layers of objects, but can you apply this expression directly to any keyframeable parameter, set your frequency and decay, then add a couple keyframes to get this action.

freq = thisComp.layer("Control Layer").effect("Freq")("Slider");
decay =thisComp.layer("Control Layer").effect("Decay")("Slider");

n = 0;
if (numKeys > 0){
n = nearestKey(time).index;
if (key(n).time > time) n--;
}
if (n > 0){
t = time - key(n).time;
amp = velocityAtTime(key(n).time - .001);
w = freq*Math.PI*2;
value + amp*(Math.sin(t*w)/Math.exp(decay*t)/w);
}else
value


Here is a project where I use a control layer.

Keyframing this by hand, while not impossible by any stretch of the imagination, certainly wouldn't look as natural as using a sine wave decay expression like John's above. Using this to control the horizontal scaling of the text only, with the anchor point right justified, should get you the yellow text effect you're looking for.

Sorry for the late response, but thank you all for the suggestions!
I'll see what I can do.

if you are interested on how to do this manually without code, I would suggest you study about the graph editor.

here are 2 good resources:

Thanks a lot for the advice! I must admit I never really bothered to use this feature.
