I've done some tries with FreeForm to create displacement map for this picture:

but it's very hard to create convincing displacement map for this men.

Of course I can spend 15 hours on turning him into black, white and grey but I wonder - maybe there is some other - easier way to do it?

I've tried varions "turn to balck'n'white", but failed.

Maybe I should try something else - not the freeform and displacement map?

I want to achieve "liitle 3d" effect on him

best regards,
andrzej

Here is a link to 3D displacement mapping - although it is for ShapeShifter AE - this principle applies to all of our products. The algorithm we use does vary between our products. The bundled version (Digieffects FreeForm) + FreeForm V2 share one algorithm. FreeForm Pro + ShapeShifter AE use a more advanced version of displacement mapping. Working 16 bpc is a must in both cases.

The link to the tutorial: http://reels.creativecow.net/film/shapeshifter-ae-the-basics-part-2

The sort answer, you will not be able to use the image you referenced as is, yo will need to modify it including blurring it. Once you go through the tuorial you will understand much better.

HTH

Cheers,
