I'm really fascinated with this CC Glass filter, because it gives me (with some adjusting) the exact effect I want to achieve in one of my projects.
My question is a bit complex, as it concerns the fine details about CC Glass - how it functions - so to speak. My question is basically, how does this filter/plugin do what it does? To be more specific, let's say there isn't any CC Glass inside After Effects. What would I have to do in order to achieve the same effect, or a very similar effect?
I guess I'd have to use a displacement map in combination with other filters and/or plugins.
Can anyone provide some insight? I know this isn't the type of question that gets asked often, so I really appreciate any input.
