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 VFX, such as force fields, heat ripples, light refractions, cloaking effects, and much more - but it’s also great for motion graphics.
