Simulates the effect of your object being deformed as it shows through a piece of glass.
An image well lets you assign an object to use as the pattern in the glass, using any image,
movie, or shape. Other parameters let you control the scale and amount of distortion.
When this filter is initially applied, Glass Distortion behaves as if there were a black image
applied to the Distort Input well, which leaves the target object unchanged.
This filter causes rasterization in 3D groups. For more information on rasterization, see
Glass Distortion (diamond image) applied
