Hello dear ladies and gentlemen,
i need some help with maybe a basic topic i am stuck on. I tried to recreate a mesh needed for production in After Effects and followed the basic instructions in a tutorial video (will link it in the end). Basically i am creating a displacement map image sequence in After Effects, which i then use to animate a displacement mod on a Plane in Blender. I add a mirror modyfier to get a symmetric kind of portal effect, on which i then would like to add some displacement/noise only on the inner side of the portal, as stated in the tutorial video. As i am a bit new to blender im stuck on this part as im not able to recreate the “horizontal displacement” only. If i add a second displacement mod, after the first one it all starts acting weird and i dont know how to constrain the displacement only on the inner side of the “circle”. Maybe somebody can help me with that or show me some general directions towards a solution of the problem? It would me much appreciated.
The Method is explained shortly in this video at 5:40 to 5:55:
Thank you very much in advance and best regards,
