I'd like to create text that appears through water (Digital Juice jumpback). I want it to look as though the text is rising out of the water almost with an embossed look. I know I haven't done a great job describing what I am thinking but I'm hoping some of you mind readers out there can help me out. I have Final Cut Studio 2 and Zaxwerks Pro Animator.
I know exactly what you're talking about. I've done it with AE, Psunami and Invigorator. You can accomplish something similar with AE without Psunami using a technique called displacement mapping.
ProAnimator will allow you to create the text easily enough, but I can't say how to take the next step in FCS. You may wish to ask in the Final Cut forum. Or if we're lucky, a Final Cut Studio expert will chime in here.
