Hi, Bill...
Sorry for the delayed response. Without the .aep project file it's hard to be sure, but I would look at a couple of things. I would reduce the amount of displacement on the flag and also look at other transfer mode settings for the text and for the displacement layer (you can cycle through these using either Shift + or Shift - ).
Good luck with it and let me know how it turns out.

I tried to follow instructions and came up with something not quite right. 3753_wavingflagssm.mov.zip

The text in the flag is not flapping correctly and the green of the flag is not as dark green as the original.

Thanks for any light you can shed on my short comings.

I have one question... maybe You can help... I need to loop this flag animations unfortunately the transition is noticeable in my case how can I change this?
@Mikolaj Dębowski

Hi, Mikolaj
In the Displacement Comp, remove the keyframes from the Offset Turbulence in the Fractal Noise Effect.
Then open Evolution Options and activate Cycle Evolution in both the Fractal Noise and Turbulent Displace effects. Change the Evolution Expression in both these effects to: time*12.
The effect will now loop as the Evolution cycles through the first revolution, at the end of the timeline.
I animated the Offset Turbulence in order to to move the displacement "waves" from screen left to right. This animation makes looping the effect difficult, if possible at all. However, leave the Offset Turbulence parameter static and you can loop the animation as described above.
Hopefully, this will still produce an acceptable result. Please let me know how it works for you.
Thanks for your interest...

Good tutorial. You really know you're stuff. Please don't take offense to this but my only criticism is that you speak too slowly and cautiously as if you're teaching little kids. It's driving me crazy.
