Making text move like an ocean wave

1. Thanks to all of you who helped me on my previous post. I d/l'd the trial of Particlemetrix and bought the "How to cheat in Motion" book.

2. I have a video of waves coming on shore. I know how to add the text I want and how to do the motion path to make it "ride along" with the waves. I stayed up late last night figuring this out.

3. What I would like to do is make the text match the "wavy" motion of the waves as well as appear to be floating on top of them. Is there such a filter/generator/magic thing to help me do this?

You needn't guide me step-by-step, just point me in the direction of the tools I need in the library and I'll cobble the rest together.

Thank.
Michael

Check out the Distortion Displace filter, it is awesome. If you are on Motion 4 take a look at this tutorial on creating a Reflection in Motion 4.

If you are on Motion 3 take a look at this creating a Reflection in Motion 3.

This will show you how the Distortion Displace filter works. Best of luck.

Stephen & Zak:
Thank you both so much for the advice.
It worked just as I hoped.
Here's a link to the finished product (only 38 sec)





It's the part with the ocean wave.

Zak: I d/l'd the Particlemetrix Demo but when I tried to use it, the watermark appeared after just a few seconds. I thought it was free usage for 15 days, then the watermark appeared. Did I, in my usual haste to finish, not read something I should have?

Michael,
Thanks for sharing. I had the same problem with the Nods plug-in. Once I restarted my computer the water mark went away for a few hours.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for sharing. I don't know what happened to your plugin, I am sure it is free for 15 days. Anyway you did a great job anyway.
