I'm trying to find out how this smearing text revealing effect is made (see @1:34 & @1:50) :

Let me know if anybody know how this was made.

Thank you!!!

For this smeary text effect, I'd use an inkblot stock video clip (or fractal noise) as a track matte for a blur effect on the text, while animating opacity and scale.
