How do I add a displacement Map. I searched through the manuel and It doesn't exactly say how to. Also the composite option doesn't appear under my list if things under the name of my clip. I have composite set to add, I think thats what I am supposed to do, thanks for any help you guys can give me.

In EffectsLab you only have this option for effects you have created. You can't displace other media. Find the effect in the timeline, click Composite, then select Displacenet Map in the filter browser on the right side of the screen.

Meaning you can use it for other media in say, Composite Lab.

I am a newb but i helped my friend do this you have to setup a mask on the thing you want to camoflauge then, if this thing moves make sure the mask covers it the whole way through after that you add a background still or anything you want and click on the title of your masked footage and by composite option click add, while still in your masked footage then add your displacement map that is how i remember how to do it i hope you can take the advice of a newb
