Magnify with a mask?
I want to pass text over existing footage with the text having a magnifying effect of the background image… kind of like the text is glass with a slight magnification.
The text will move across the footage from right to left like a marquee.
I was thinking about using a text mask.. but not smart enough to figure out how to magnify the background.
I was thinking I would do it with 2 comps… ie. Comp the footage with a 5% scale enhancement and then create a text mask and animate its position.. and over lay the “regular” footage… but the edges don’t look right… I need a way for the edges to refract the background.
