1) Put the camera on a tripod.

2) Film yourself.

3) Dont move the camera and then film the area you were previous standing in.

4) Edit the two scenes in your editing software so they are back to back.

You select "Displacement" for the Composite Mode on the footage.

I am not aware of any such restriction. The limitation I am aware of, however, is that you are not able to have more than one filter applied to the composite track. Are you sure the message you received did not say "This section supports a maximum of 1 filter"?

If this is the message you are receiving, then it is likely you have double clicked the filter, which would cause the filter to be applied more than once, resulting in the aforementioned message. To apply a displacement map, only a single click is required. If you are still having complications, please let us know.

Take care.
Wizard.

If you have a person that you want to be invisible by using displacement, they have to be on a seperate layer from the background. Displacement uses the layer you are applying the effect to as a map to displace the pixels of the layer below it.
