Quick photoshop help

Say I had a layer of text and a layer of smoke I created with smudge and liquify. I want to move the smoke on top of the text and delete all of it, but retain the smoke that sits on top of the text. Hows I do it?

short answer: turn text into a mask, alt+click the layer. Delete the smoke.

It would be far easier to do that in 3d studio max and then put it into photoshop, than to make that in photoshop.

I've tried doing three layers and messing with the nudge and opacity, but I can't seem to replicate the 3D text here.

Looks like they duplicated the layer, shrunk it, and then masked the edges. But, considering it's happening "real time" in the video there's probably some effect out there to do it.
