Dan,

I think the easiest way would be to open the EPS in illustrator, then save as an AI file. After effects will import all of the top level layers in your AI file as separate layers in AE.

Here is a link that explains how to prepare AI files for after effects.

The other benefit to this method is that your artwork remains vector.


Another method would be to just duplicate your layer as many times as you need and
mask out the individual letters.

-Andy
