Bulge for the one.
CC Sphere for the other.
Thanks but I am not sure how these are what I am looking for. I saw a video of what "bulge" does and it's totally irrelevant to the movement that "boggart" does. In the film the boggart is transforming from one thing to another. That's what I want for my text. To make an effect that will give the impression of transforamtion.
About effect1: I want my first text to move like it's trying to transform into something and of course that something will be the next text. (keywords: randomly fast blur turbine).
about effect 2: I don't want to create a revolving sprere. I want my text to go around the sphere or cylinder (without creating a sphere nor cylinder).
any videos on youtube?
Thanks but I was hoping for something more to what I am looking for. I am looking for these two spesific effects.
OK, here's how to do the text on a sphere in 3 steps.
Make a new composition the same height as your master comp and about 2 and a half times as wide as it is high. IOW 1000 X 2500 pixels would be ok.
Add a layer for the surface of the sphere. It can be a solid or a photo. The layer or image should fill the composition.
Add a text layer to your comp with the appropriate text realizing that the height of the comp is going to be the height of your sphere.
Drop this rectangular comp in your main comp (it's called nesting) and then apply CC Sphere.
There you go, it will take about 2 minutes.
The other effect would be easiest to recreate in a 3D app so you could distort the model. A masked subject and bulge will give you somethig like the growing head effect but it won't be as good as a distortion mesh on a 3D object. Check out Blender at blender.org. It's free and plenty capable of this kind of effect.
Don't look to recreate the Harry Potter effect in a few clicks. It's going to take some serious planning, careful camera work, and masking and compositing skills.
Thanks for the information....
