1) Import two of the same video clips

2)Open Layer two [video 2]'s video and choose the displacement filter

3)mess around with it and mask around your actor

4) good luck wink

EffectsLab Pro only has displacement available for effects layers. If you want to do advanced compositing, such as using displacement to make a person invisible, you will need CompositeLab Pro or VisionLab Studio.

On any effects layer, on the timeline, click Composite. This will open the various composite options in the toolbox at right.
