Time Displacement AE plugin effect code

Hello, i'm looking for how the programming code for the Time Displacement plugin effect in AE works and is written. 
I've read about simple codes for slit-scan which generate a "time displaced" static image from a live video source(*). Could such a code be modified to apply the way the Time Displacement effect from AE processes pixels with luminance values from the map layer, so as to obtain a "time displacement" moving image (ie a video) from the live video source.
I've located and opened the AE effect plugin, but am at a loss since i don't really know anything about programming or code, so i was unable to read anything from it. I would vastly appreciate if anybody could somebody shed some light into my research.
