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.
