If you’re feeling brave why not break down the layers and effects, to find out how to create a glitch effect in After Effects, yourself!

Perfect for sci-fi, technology, and gaming videos

The glitch technique is great way to add drama to your sequence, making the viewer think that the video is being hacked or is on the verge of breaking down. In a world so reliant on technology the thought of viruses, error messages, technical faults and software crashes cause tension when the screen you’re watching begins to twitch, and the graphics distort!
