I have newly started in AE and I came across source text animation.

I have a requirement where I want to show multiple text on source text keyframe animation. I was wondering instead of writing each text on the keyframe is there a way to automate this.

For example, I have created two text layers and the empty layer is referring to the data source (text source) and I know how to split them based on a delimiter. Please refer to the screenshot.


Now, Is there a way for me to tell AE to increase the value dynamically inside word[] in line 3 by +1.

If possible, I desire the code to return word[0] at 0000; word[1] at 0001 and word[2] at 0002.

Many thanks in advance.
