Form & Displacement maps
on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:25:18 pm

I have a map of the world that is flat, I made another comp with a white solid and a black vertical stripe. the stripe moves from one side to the other and Im using it to displace the map and make it wave sorta like a tsunami. What Im wanting is the Form particles to disperse a little bit as the wave runs thru. I don't want the whole map to disperse just the area that has the wave. Hope that makes sense and hope someone can help me achieve this. Thanks in advance!

Go to the Layer Maps section, in Displacement, select:

Functionality: Individual XYZ
Map Over XY (this maps your 2D map to 2 axes of the 3D space of the base shape)
Layer for Z: Your precomp layer

This will displace the particles in Z as the bar moves.
