Hello All,

This is my first use of the forum, so this may be a stupid question. Could someone point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to achieve the invisible 'Predator' type effect that you see on the promo video? I have had a quick look and haven't come acroos anything yet. Or is it a preset for one of the FX engines?

Thanks,
mik biggrin

Hey there,

I think this may be what you're looking for.

It's basically using the displacement map in the compositing track of your footage. I don't know what "predator" is, but as you said invisible I can only assume that you mean this.

Look through the tutorials section, or do a quick search as it'll save you a lot of time.
