If you want to learn the Displace Filter


Welles Goodrich - 09:45am May 9, 2004 Pacific

Recently I decided to undertake a study of the Displace Filter and found three tutorials which were excellent.

Steve's series of tutorials presents a wide variety of uses.

Markzebra's guides you through using displace in animation.

Stroker's series of tutorials are perhaps the best if you are trying to comprehend how displace really works even if you are visually oriented. I've received permission to host a PDF download of this work which
builds knowledge step by step with great good humor to boot!

    Could someone summarize briefly what the Displace Filter does or can do?  That would be helpful.  thx.

    It warps an object based on the light or dark values of another file, or map. If you need to make a objects shadow conform to an irregular surface, the displace filter is perfect. It's useful to creating glass effects as well. Check through the previous posts in this thread for some links such as this fine tutorial.
