Post-keys behaviour: "keep going" keyframe

In LightWave, you can set a keyframe channel's post-keyframe behaviour to "Linear", in which the channel curve will continue going off in the last slope it was heading, instead of resetting or become static (curve=zero slope).

What's the equivalent function in After Effects?


Thanks!

If it wasn't clear, this is an expression. Set your first and last keyframe say to rotation 0 and 360, alt-click and apply the expression

loopOut("continue")

and your layer will continue along the same velocity for the duration of the comp.

No worries, but I'm sure that's helped some of the newer readers.

Thanks!
