Q. What is a ‘Transition’?

A transition is a change from one thing to the next. The way in which any two video clips are joined together is called a transition. Well, transitions are very important everyone from the camera operator to the editor must have a good understanding of how to make an effective transition to make the videos seamless!

Q. What is ‘Displacement Map’ in After Effects?

The Displacement Map effect is one of the ‘Distort Effects’ of After Effects. The Displacement Map effect distorts a layer by displacing pixels horizontally and vertically based on the color values of pixels in the control layer specified by the Displacement Map Layer property. The type of distortion created by the Displacement Map effect can vary greatly, depending on the control layer and the options you select.

The effect uses the control layer specified by Displacement Map Layer, without considering any effects or masks. If you want to use the control layer with its effects, precompose it. If the control layer isn’t the same size as the layer to which the effect is applied, it is centered, stretched, or tiled depending on the setting for Displacement Map Behavior.

Select Expand Output to allow the results of the effect to extend beyond the original boundaries of the layer to which it’s applied. Select Wrap Pixels Around to copy pixels displaced outside the original layer boundaries to the opposite side of the layer; that is, pixels pushed off the right side appear on the left side, and so on.
