I'm sorry if this was answered somewhere but I've spent the good past few hours trying to find a solution to this.
I have a simple logo that was crated in Photoshop. It consists of some text spelling out a name and couple lines above and below. I had someone take this into Illustrator and make "paths" (sorry if I am using the wrong terminology) So basically I can click on each individually letter or line in illustrator and it selects it rather than the whole logo.
Anyway, I now have taken this into AE and did "Create Shapes from Vector Layer" to create shape layers for each letter of text etc..
All I want to do now is have the letters "write on" similar to Generate Stroke. I have tried trim paths but I'm not getting the results I want. For instance, I have the letter "N" and I just want it to write on.
Below is a screenshot of the letter I am trying to animate and the content of the shape layer.
