For those who are wondering how to fix the displacement map that only covers part of the screen.

Andrew explains how to fix it around 10:10 - 11:56.

I was having this sort of problem, too. I decided to keep watching just in case if he explained it. Sure enough, he did. :)

How can I make my text approach the glass all at once (instead of letter by letter)? I tried just not including the "Enable Character per 3D" but that didn't let me add Z-space. I can't use "Based on Line" because my text is two lines. I'm at a loss.

Make the text a 3D layer, then push it back into 3D space, make a keyframe, go forward in time, push the text forward in space. Hope that helps.

With a few of your tutorials are already done for us if we wanted to use them, can't you do it for this one? Pretty please, I can't do after effects, it's one of my weakest parts of editing. I'm making a horror film for my finale major project and I need a title sequence and this looks perfect. Can anyone help me out?

Could you apply this to footage? Like to texture a face or other body part? I noticed that when you solo'd the text after collapsing the transformation, it looked like scarring around the edges. Would you just apply a normal map to a displacement map adjustment layer and then mask it in the shape you wanted and track it to that body part?
