Its fairly simple. For the most basic way, place 2 clips on the timeline, and for the top clip, click Composite on the timeline, and then select Displacement for the composite type.

Generally, you will want to key or mask out the element in layer 2 that you are displacing, but it is not required.

An animated mask was used to reveal the effect. I believe the actor in this case was greenscreened, so animating a mask to progressively reveal the displacement would not be too difficult.
