Hello people

I have tracked some text in to a scene using the camera tracker (the footage is a drone shot looking down on a dusty car park)

I have pre comped a duplicate of the camera tracked footage and applied a tint for my displacement layer

I displace the text layer using the pre comp layer and use the luminance and set the displacement to 25 to both horizontal and vertical displacement.

Now everything looks great and is fine


when i play the clip the text is slightly 'noisy around the edges' and slightly flickering/moving.

Does anyone know why this might be?

wrap pixels and expand out put i have unchecked yet it does nothing. The more i increase the horizontal and vertical displace the more noisy it gets and motion it gets around the edges of the text.

Displacing text with footage, it will look like that. What are you trying to accomplish? Are you making a shadow out of the text layer? Are you trying to make it look like it is projected onto the surface? Something else?
