I'd rather call this a workaround.

Also, adding a black and white adjustment (suggested in the Digitally Fearless video, i believe) could have a (positive) impact on the behaviour of the Displacement filter.

How is this a workaround when it  uses the filter for displacement?

Hi, Olivier. What i meant is that, if this was really a fix, the Displacement filter would produce these results without the user having to create additional adjustment layers (Guassian blur, Black and White …) like you and the man behind Digitally Fearless have done. I think only Serif can 'fix' it; we (you and others) can only come up with creative ways (workarounds) of making this work, despite the Displacement tool doing a poor job as it comes with the software.

When you watch James Ritson's tutorial about the Displacement filter, you'll see he uses an example whereby the typeface used (Chalkduster) lends itself for the standard behaviour (the one that nobody seems to like) of the filter. He doesn't talk about other adjustments needed to get the expected results.

Olivio, I remember seeing a displacement tutorial from the legacy tutorials.  Don’t know if you remember this:  https://player.vimeo.com/video/136107637

Nice one!

When I visited the clip for the first time on YT I had to skip an advertisement from Adobe! :D
