One interesting thing that I learned when developing this tutorial is how easy it is to create distorted text using the displacement map effect when paired with a distortion element.

This tutorial used a few clips from our Corruption pack here at RocketStock. Corruption is an exclusive pack of 120 4K distortion elements. Inside Corruption, you’ll find distortion elements, transitions, and overlays that you can easily track and drop into your video projects.  if you want to see Corruption in action, check out the following demo.
