    I’m trying to get my type to overlay on the bag. I’m alpha matting the video layer to the text and adding some FX to the text layer. Any thoughts on how to get this looking more realistic? Any other approaches on how to do this in Ae? 🙏 Thanks in advance.

    It’s looking pretty good already.

    You could try using a displacement map on the text, using the bag (or a greyscale version) of the bag as the displacement texture. That would pick up some more of the distortions on the surface.

    And experiment with some of the less well known transfer modes, Overlay or Hard Light might help sell this too.

    Some 3D will help.

    Or use a distort option.
