A lot of Ae rigs like this use time-remapping to let you choose a particular frame from a comp. When you animate a controlling slider from the pose in frame 1 to the pose in frame 3, it passes by the pose in frame 2.

To have the mouth shape interpolate between two arbitrary mouth shapes, you have two options that I see:

1) Build your mouth shape such that every pose of the mouth can be created by adjusting the same set of properties. Then we can use valueAtTime to get the value of each property at the outgoing and incoming pose, and have Ae interpolate between them. You'll have to use the new Master Properties features and some expressions to "push" the pose value into the rigged comp.

2) Animate all 30 transitions by hand (1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 2-1, 2-3, etc.) on the same timeline and use time-remapping expressions to "pull" the correct sequence from the rigged comp.

Can you share the rigged mouth shape comp you've built?
