how to animate falling object ?

Hi.

how can i animate a falling object so that it would look realistic, i.e. gradually accelerating towards the ground according to the law of gravity?

None of the options in Keyframe Assistant are suitable for this purpose

Hi Tomas-

Have you used the Graph Editor much? I think this would help with your acceleration.

Find a couple simple videos to get the hang of it but it's probably going to make your shot a lot more realistic once you play around with it.

Hope that helps!

There are also some scripts (Ease and Wizz comes to mind):

And there are also a number of Expressions which can easily be tapped:

Just to add more input for the archives...
Check out Newton (currently v 2) for a full solution for physics in After Effects.
