I'm trying to create a ceartain effect. I want to try and make someone look like liquid (a good example of this is on the Composite Lab product page, near the top it's one of the video examples labeled as displacement.) How do I create this effect and can it be created in Effects Lab? Thanks!

The displacement effect you saw on the CompositeLab pro page can't be done in Effectslab. It can only be used in CompositeLab pro and Visionlab.

Select the Displacement filter under Composite on the timeline. It really is that simple.

For best results you will want to use a key to isolate the actor you want to displace.

If you already had a teardrop element to composite, like this AlamDV2 plugin -
a displacement map might help sell the effect. You might use another layer of the same teardrop over it to get the highlights on the image.
Hope that helps- biggrin
