Chromatic Displacement uses one layer to displace the pixels of another, while smoothly separating out the colors. Unlike the Displacement Map effect in After Effects, Chromatic Displacement uses the displacement image as a height map, which gives you beautiful, organic results.
We designed Chromatic Displacement for creating professional visual effects, such as force fields, heat ripples, light refractions, cloaking effects, and much more. It’s incredibly flexible, giving you control over the strength, color spread, and softening.
Displacement effects aren’t just for visual effects. Use text to displace an image, or bring on a logo in a new and interesting way. Once you try Chromatic Displacement, you’ll never go back to standard displacement effects again.
