4 years after the questions was raised.. I am sure there are more people that are like me with the same problem.

Anyways, I was able to figure out that this preset uses stroke width to initially hide the characters and then over time reduces to the stroke width to 0 so that the actual character fill may be visible.

Now a few gothas:
1. make sure that the background color is the same as the stroke color that will enable the characters to hide at the beginning of the animation.
2. make sure that you set the "Stroke over Fill" property next to Stroke Width option in your character panel (does not work if the "Fill over Stroke" option is selected.
3. Does not work if you apply ramp or other effect that is applied to the layer property i.e. ramp, colorista, etc.

Hope this helps other like me.
