How do we do PhotoMirage effects in Hitfilm?

Okay -- turn down the volume so you're not annoyed by the Way-Bad music,  and see this photo-mirage app.  Many other apps are around that can do this kind of effect.  Is there an easy way to do it in Hitfilm, or are we waiting for them to bless us with a new module?

Better example in this tutorial

Attn: FXHome -- this effect would be extremely useful and a big time saver as a plugin or a module , but please don't make it a separate program.  We need you to stay focused.

    Um. That's basically masking a modified displacement effect.

    That's a long and involved process.  But let's work on a solution: Granted, I can make small feathered selections and then fill them with a greyscale ramp. I can work faster in Photoshop and have the original image ghosted on the top layer.  But how do we blend all the small areas so there's no sharp edges? In the video, it appears as if there are smooth (or at least hardly visible) transitions between areas.
