About This Class

In this video I cover the basics of Pixel Sorting and Displacement Mapping in After Effects.

I start the video by showing you a particular way of abstracting a photograph in Photoshop. Next I show the basics Processing, and how you can Pixelsort your image. Finally we take the glitched image into After Effect, and I show you how you can use Displacement Mapping to animate your images, and use them to distort type as well.

Processing - download.
