How do I use glitch stock footage to displace text?

gitlogic Posts: 11 Just Starting Out

Go to this video to timestamp 0:26:

I have the pack, but I've got no idea how to do what they did there in the video. I'm using HitFilm Express. I don't think Set Matte really works for it, because it just changes the text's texture, but doesn't move any part of it around like what was shown in the video. Thanks.

    Tutorial. Not a Glitch effect, but it's the same thing and, discusses what Displacement actually does, and covers the sliders.

    Hitfilm has a LOT of filters. Even I overlook things after 8+ years. Some have odd names.

    Incidentally, the tutorial will show you how to set up a comp shot as the Displacement layer. A comp with animated fractal noise in Block mode makes a great Glitch. Search YouTube for "Glitch Tutorial Hitfilm" and you'll find other methods as well.
