View Full Version : refraction for logo?

refraction? i have a composited logo in combustion. its glass. but i placed a backround behind my logo. i was wondering how i can have my logo refract the backround, it sounds easy. in shake there were a few macros that did this so im just assuming its something already in combustion, anyone know?

use a greyscale version of your "glass layer" as the source for displace operator that you apply to your bg layer. Some tweaking will probably be called for depending on personal taste, but that should do it.
