he settings are:

-Gauss – This tells the plugin how much to blur the radius
-Motion size – This tells the plugin how man pixels the shift should be
-Motion angle/direction widget – This tells the plugin which direction to shift the pixels
-Noise – This tells the plugin how much noise to put into the displaced areas
-Iterations – This tells the plugin how many times to loop to shift the pixels
-Boundary – Mirror or Periodical – Not sure what this does, but I usually leave it on default “mirror”. Of course, nothing is stopping anyone from experimenting.
-Smoothness – I suppose this is tied in with gaussian blurring
-Area size – Is this similar to gaussian radius?
-Adaptive smoothing on or off – Again, not sure what this does, but if you turn it off, it might do less crunching.
