    Import rows of text in Excel to layers in After Effects?

    j-u-s-t

      Hello! After Effects noob here. I've been tasked with the grunt work task of moving several hundred words from an excel file into After Effects. The words will be dynamically pulled into an animation.

       

      Each word is in it's own cell in Excel and needs to be on its own layer in After Effects. I thought there must be a way to automate this!

       

      Any ideas for a way to import with a script or something...? Thanks!
