I'm trying to setup a cartoon countup 1-100.

My text has a scale wiggle,  I precomposed some text layers to add some scale-in bounce using keyframes 0 > 110 > 100,

I'm going to have to precomp all 100 numbers layers and copy/paste the same keyframes. Instead can I create a null object, keyframe the number slider 0 > 110 > 100, and have all 100 precomp layers go through that same animation sequentially?

 

Thank you

Sure. That would be a classical valueAtTime() expression filtered through a linear() similar to linear(time,inPoint,outPoint,layerA.valueAtTime(Start),layerA.valueAtTime(End)). This is some pseudo-code, but you'll get the drift. Other than that a simple copy&paste approach doesn't sound too bad, to be honest. It's easy enough to animate this once, duplicate stuff and then stagger layers with the Sequence Layers keyframe assistent or scripts. Likewise I'm pretty sure there is in fact some "trail delay"script on AEScripts.com that can help.
