Create convincing real-world elements when using the Reflection effect from VFX Suite.

Duplicate the source layer, and Set Source Opacity to zero, to isolate the reflection from the source.

This enables you to target the reflection independently, in this case using Chromatic Displacement, to create this water ripple effect.

Download the project file and take a look.

Tip: Use a low setting for Soften Displacement Layer to simulate water ripples. Higher settings create larger ripples
