  • Magnify with a mask?

    Posted by Joseph M. morgan on April 14, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    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.
