I need to recreate this wave bulge effect at the start of the following video.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You can pull this off by using a Displacement Map. Make one in a precomp with a solid that has Fractal Noise, Levels and a bit of blur applied to it. If you want to animate it, do it in the precomp.

Then in the main comp, use the precomp as a displacement map for the text layer.

It'll involve some tweaking, but it won't be a horrible amount.

You don't need to do it in a precomp anymore if you're using a newer version of After Effects. You can simply point the Displacement Map effect at the layer with the Fractal effects, blurs, etc. and tell the Displacement map to use the layer with effects and masks and not just the layer source (it's the second dropdown to the right of the layer picking dropdown).
It makes it easier/faster to iterate on things since you don't have to keep diving into and out of precomps.

you can probably just use the ripple effect. make the wave height and width like around 100 and increase the radius and then you should be able to start seeing it kick in
