Animation of letters filling

Is it possible to animate text/object with 'end' in after effects just like you do with strokes? How can I achieve this? See the video and you'll understand what I wan't to achieve.

Cheers,

    You'll want to use the completed text as a track matte, and animate something filling up on the layer below.  Or just shoot some video of a liquid filling a clear container and use it.

     

    And to learn AE, don't count on lame tutorials from high school kids on YouTube. 

    Get your info from the pros.

    I think you want something like this. It's just a text layer as a track matte over footage of water filling a container.
