    Here's a quick dirty way you can do it yourself.
    Place two instances of the Echo effect on an Adjustment layer at the top of your comp.
    Then adjust how many instance of the Onion Skin you want and then the only really cumbersome part is the time offset. I'm sure there's a mathematical way of doing it but you can set one positive and one negative for your before an after. Decay set down to 35 does seem to do the trick.

    Thanks for filing this request.

    The way both expressions and master properties work (as well as properties exposed in Motion Graphics templates, which use the same mechanism as master properties), this would be difficult to implement in the example you describe.

    Expressions and master properties are both overrides of the property’s original value, the same way that keyframes override a single, static value.

    In the case you describe, you are using an expression to override the value of a property. It may use the keyframes of the property to calculate the ultimate value, but in the end it’s the expression that determines what value the property uses.

    Once used as a master property, any changes to the master property are an additional override on that property, which supersedes both the expression and the keyframes. You can see how this gets complex very quickly. When we designed master properties, we had…

    I understand it's not a simple task to implement. Master properties are great and so are expressions. The thing I'm trying to figure out is for this instance of adding a bounce to a simple two key frame animation in the precomp. The key frames are what need to be pushed up to the master properties. And ultimately the expression is only supposed to take effect after the key frames. So the expressions aren't actually overriding the keyframes. It's the reverse. The keyframes are driving the expression to push for additional bounce animation based on the two more straight forward animations. The bounce expressions are all over the internet. I was able to just copy and paste the expression from the precomp up onto the same master properties keyframes. I just thought it was weird that it also deleted the expression instead of stacking it on top of what the master key frames were doing.

    Here's the expression so you have reference.

    Use Set Matte effect and Transform effect or just precomp the track matte layer.
