    Splitting type into individual letters?

      Is there a fast way to split type into individual letters? I wanted to do a manual "unfolding" effect of a sentence, as I find it much more powerful to control than the per-letter 3d effect.

      basically i had to lay out the sentence one letter at a time, and it would have been nice to just write the sentence and then divide it into individual letters, the way you can do in Flash.

      as an example, check out this project on Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/2409242
      it's the text effect that happens 7 seconds in. i split the layers to have more control, but i had to line the letters up individually because i couldn't just break apart the sentence.
