Hello all! Thank you for reading this as I'm sure it's a dumb question:

It's a little hard to explain so I'll start from the top:

I downloaded a font that is block-text, like letterman jacket or something like that.

However, in After Effects, when put this text over the Video, the Font was revealed to be a stencil!
So the video plays through it and the font is essentially splines.

If i put the font over a white solid, THEN the face of the font looks correct (white) but then how can I make it stay this way (font-face filled in with white) while still having it over the video?

Is there a way in AE, either through Keying, or whathaveyou, to make it so the "Face" of the font stays white? Thanks so much!

I've been experimenting for hours and haven't found a solution.

Try using the paint bucket effect.
