Displacer Pro works on the GPU and has more features than Ae’s Displace Effect – and it will be free.
I’d bet if you ask any After Effects user what effects need updating, quite a few will have the Displacement effect on their list. Plugin Everything will soon release Displacer Pro, for free, that offers a few more features than the default Ae displace effect, including working on the GPU.
“No longer do you have to use the clunky and slow displacement map that is built into After Effects! Now you can use Displacer Pro, the brand new free after effects plugin that will change your life.”
Sounds great! We all hope to see a launch for the free plugin soon.
