Wrinkle in Time Text Effect Trouble!
A couple months back I came across a fantastic Red Giant tutorial exploring some of the effects from Wrinkle in Time-one of my favorite effects is the distorted text effects. In AE, it uses a displacement layer with text, this is something that should easily be able to translate to Hitfilm. However, I encountered troubled while doing so!

When I adjusted the horizontal and vertical displacement levels, the text simply moved back and forth. The displacement was set to luminance for both horizontal and vertical, just like in the tutorial, but the same effect from AE was not yielded. I'm not sure why, here's the tutorial I tried to follow, the text effect is discussed early on:
