I'm new to After Effects and am trying to create a glowing text effect for a sing along, similar to karaoke. I want each word to glow as its being sung. The only way I know how to do this is to animate each word separately, which will take too long.

Is there another way to do this?

Thank you!

Two copies of the text. One with a glow effect applied. Then use text animators to animate what letters of the glow-effected layer are visible.
