I'm new to After Effects and played with Mocha for After Effects a bit (which is v.easy to pick up) and was wondering: If I have a bunch of dense set of keyframes as a result of tracking, is there an After Effects option/script that can clean the data (reduce keyframes but maintain easing/timing) ? Is this possible ? If so, how ?

Just select all the keyframes you want reducing and use the built-in plugin called 'smother' which will convert your set of baked keyframes back into a bezier curve.
