    Animating the stroke of a multi-color vector from illustrator

      Hi,

       

      Apologies if this is a n00b question.

       

      I would like to animate the stroke of the following image I have created in illustrator:

      I brought it into AE with the layers separated and was able to get it to animate this:

      It animates the handwriting in the style that I want, however, the stroke is a new stroke and not the stroke that I had drawn in illustrator. How can I achieve this animation effect while maintaining the colors (each section of the handwriting sample is cut into a different color, it's not a gradient) and look of the original image?

       

      Thanks,
      Nika
