HOW TO ADD A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT

Rename the script file so that it is towards the top of the Scripts list.  For example 01-Reveal in Finder.jsx should put it at the top of the list.

Navigate to the After Effects preferences folder:

(Windows) <drive>\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\<version>

(Mac OS) <drive>/Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/<version>

Note: Refer to this to find the Library folder on OS X: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11395

Open the "Adobe After Effects <version> Shortcuts" file.  Note that starting with CC the file is named: "Adobe After Effects <version> <language> Shortcuts.txt" so make sure to edit the correct one if you work in more than one language.

Search for "ExecuteScriptMenuItem" choose which script item you want and assign a shortcut (make sure to check for conflicts).  Remember that they are in alphabetical order so the first script in the list will be ExecuteScriptMenuItem01, etc.  Please note that there is a bug on Mac where the first item is ExecuteScriptMenuItem02  (it's all shifted forward by one).

HOW TO ADD AS FT-TOOLBAR BUTTON

Make sure the script is installed in the Scripts folder (not the ScriptUI Panels folder)
Add a "SCRIPT LAUNCHER" button and point it to the Reveal in Finder.jsxbin file in the Scripts folder.

    DuplicateLayers-n-UpdateExpressions

    Duplicates the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers. Might make more sense if you watch the demo :-)
