Text Animation as transition?

Not sure how to do this, or even if it's possible (don't use motion too often), hope someone can help.

Trying to use - or replicate - the "simple glow" transition effect to transition from one logo to another. Earlier in my spot, simple glow wipes on some text, and later in the piece, I'd like to have the same effect wipe on logo 1, and then wipe on logo 2 above logo 1 as 1 quickly fades out beneath, but can't seem to figure out how to do it - the simple glow text effect will only work on text.

Thoughts appreciated.

Yes, that's right, the text behaviors will only work on text. You've probably already done this, but you could mimic the "Simple Fast Blur" with a combination of duplicate logo layers, animated blur and glow filters, and an animated mask to do the reveal. Specifically:

1) On the "background" logo layer, you could use an animated blur filter and a feathered mask to wipe it on.
2) On the "top, fancy fx" layer(s), you could add the color tint, animated glow and blur filters, animate a slight x-axis transform, and also use an add blending mode to get the "blobby" effect between maybe two top layers.
