Create a "satin" glass effect

A very interesting effect to develop on your texts, the aim is to obtain a "satin" glass effect.

Here's a short breakdown explaining how Philip von Borries achieve this :

To sum up his method:

  1. Animate circles
  2. Add your text, a bevel effect and an internal glow
  3. Duplicate your text and add "Displacer Pro" (link)
  4. Add an "fast box blur" and turn your layer into an "adjustment layer"
  5. Add "CC Glass" effect
  6. Set the first text layer to "color density -" blend mode.
  7. Hide your animated circles with a matte
  8. Add grain and glow with "Deep Glow"
