I'm using the displacement map effect to create some cool glitch text action. It was working great, however at some point, when I ran the RAM preview again on the comp (after working on some other comps), I noticed that the effect had somehow changed appearances. Please see attached screenshot. It no longer shows the crazy horizontal lines.
Can you tell me why this happened? I'm very new at this.
It looks like the displacement map layer is now referring to its source text layer instead of the glitch layer. Has the glitch perhaps been accidentally removed from your comp, or accidentally changed in the ECP?
Thank you Walter! I was using a stock footage of a TV screen glitch and somehow (probably dumb old me) it was removed from the comp. I've restored it and now all I gotta do is go fix each of the adjustment layers...
