Displacement mapping depends on color values. If you can animate the colors you can animate displacement. Maybe this zillion year old AE tip will help. I don't think CS6 will open the sample project. I'll try and update it and put up a new link.
Great, thanks! Is it possible to let the Displacement Map effect display beyond the bounding box of the layer it is affecting? Utlity-Grow Bounds doesn't seem to work in this case.
Another feature I wish Mesh Warp had: the ability to 'parent' nulls to vertices. I imagine there must be some way to shift the anchor point in the same way pixels are shifted by Displacement Map? So that, theoretically you could have a layer being distorted, and some nulls following with it.
You can do that using FreeForm Pro and expressions...
