I have a text animation (animated letters) in AFX with an "outline" font (that has no fill). There has to be a way to fill the inside of the font somehow? Are there any workarounds? I know I could manually "paint" behind the text, but that's no option since it should be animated (sure, I could keyframe).

I could duplicate the animated text layer, add a stroke big enough. But how can I "matte" out the "overfill"? Is there an effect in AFX to take an alpha matte just from the "outside" of a layer? That would solve this issue..
