Now, I could split each line manually and animate the letters from top and bottom by hand but it would be really helpful if I could use an expression or something similar to have the even characters come from above and the odd ones from the bottom, I was thinking that maybe an expression applied to the offset property in the range selector can help me achieve this? I would have two different animators, one for the top and one for the bottom.
This way I can duplicate the text layer and finish a long list of titles a lot faster.
I'd make my text as desired, then mask out every other character and duplicate the layer. Then I'd change the mode on the mask to the opposite (probably Subtract). Then I'd animate the two layers' vertical positions. Done.
