Image Motion to Follow Water Ripple Question
on Mar 10, 2015 at 3:44:07 pm

I apologize if this has been addressed, but I was not able to find anything using my own basic terminology.

I have some actual footage of a water surface where the water is still, then gets disturbed and returns to still. I'd like to use a graphic that appears reflected on the water's surface and follows (or appears to follow)the water's disturbance pattern. Since the water and the disturbance are filmed as opposed to being created in AE, I'm having a difficult time finding advice.

Can someone point me to a tutorial or give me a nudge in the right direction as to how I could pull this off in AE please?

I would suggest using a Displacement Map. Make a copy of your graphic, then use the water image as the displacement map:
