Chromatic Displacement uses one layer to displace the pixels of another, while smoothly separating out the colors. Unlike the Displacement Map effect in After Effects, Chromatic Displacement uses the displacement image as a height map, which gives you beautiful, organic results. We designed Chromatic Displacement for creating professional visual effects, such as force fields, heat ripples, light refractions, cloaking effects, and much more – but it’s also great for motion graphics.

We designed Chromatic Displacement for creating professionalvisual effects, such as force fields, heat ripples, light refractions, cloakingeffects, and much more. It’s incredibly flexible, giving you control over thestrength, color spread, and softening.
Displacement effects aren’t just for visual effects. Usetext to displace an image, or bring on a logo in a new and interesting way.Once you try Chromatic Displacement, you’ll never go back to standarddisplacement effects again.
Chromatic Displacement has been designed to include lots offeatures to make it easy to displace chroma in your footage and motiongraphics.

Chromatic Displacement gives you the ability to introduce arainbow spectrum of colors to the displacement effect. You control the amountof chromatic color and spread. You can even choose not to have any color spreadat all.
Want more color options than just the standard rainbow? WithChroma Tint you can push your colors towards blue/yellow or green/Purple for amore unique effect.
Chromatic Displacement includes options for softening boththe detail in the displacement map layer and the final displacement result.
Sometimes you want a soft edged result, but sometimes youwant the alpha channel of your displacement layer to be respected. ChromaticDisplacement offers 3 ways to handle your displacement layer’s alpha channel.
Chromatic Displacement is fully GPU accelerated, and blazingfast at any quality setting. It also has a CPU render mode, in case your renderfarm doesn’t have GPUs.

The minimum GPU required is an Intel HD 5000 integratedgraphics chip. Of course, newer and faster discrete GPU components from AMD andNvidia will yield faster performance.
- For Nvidia, we recommend 9xx series graphics cards ornewer; mobile GPUs; or the professional series Quadro cards.
- For AMD, we recommend 200 series graphics cards or newer;mobile GPUs; or the professional series FireGL cards.
VRAM size requirements: For HD resolution output, we recommendthat your GPU have at least 2 GB of memory. If you are planning on doinghigh-resolution project in 4K or more, we recommend a GPU with at least 4 GB ofmemory.
Any CPU from Intel or AMD is supported.
