Has anyone come across a method to apply displacement to videos? When I import the video it comes in as an empty and doesn't provide me with the option to use any modifiers. I would like to apply displacement that changes as the video progresses. If anyone can point me to some resources, it would be greatly appreciated!

In your preferences, make sure you enabled the "Import images as planes" add-on

enter image description here

Go to Add (or SHIFT + A ) > Image > Images as Planes

Then choose your video.

Add your modifiers :

Set some keyframes and play.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you Gorgious! Just a follow up question... Do I set the keyframes as the displacement texture? $\endgroup$ – Niko Dellic Apr 8 at 20:14
  • $\begingroup$ What I did but didn't show is that I added an empty, set it as the texture coordinate in the displacement modifier, and simply keyframed the empty at 0,0,0 at frame 0 and then something like 0,0,20 at frame 100. If it isn't clear enough I'll update the answer $\endgroup$ – Gorgious Apr 9 at 6:49

Subdivide the plane and you will be able to apply the modifiers.
