Character opacity overlapping

Hello There,

So I am working on a project in Arabic, and I am doing a simple animation-in for the text using opacity and position. However, when the opacity is anything lower than a 100%, the overlapping characters appear darker between the intersections, because that is the approach After Effect uses to connect Arabic text. I can precompose the text and animate the composition, but what is the point? I will be giving up all of the text properties. This solution fails to work for more complex text animation. Is there a way to have a constant transparancy all throughout the text? I am thinking of something that subtracts the opacity of the overlapping sections, but I am not sure how to achieve that.

 

When the opacity is less than 100%:

When the opacity is 100% it is seamless!

Nothing stops you from just using the layer's regular opacity. Conversely, you can apply an effect like Fill and manipulate the source opacity/ composite over original amount some of these effects have to achieve the same result.
