Quick Overview

Randomly shuffles image blocks. Great for clean-looking noise effects, blocky glitches and transitions.

How it works

Blocks of the source image are simply swapped between each other. Their size, spread, count and other parameters can be controlled and animated.

Available parameters rundown

  • Channels allow you to specify which color channels should the effect be applied to:
    • RGBA - the effect is applied to all channels equally
    • red, green, blue and alpha - the effect is applied only to the selected channel
  • Block Width specifies the width of the blocks that should be swapped - the values go from 1 (this produces noise-like effect) up to 1024 (large tiles)
  • Block Height specifies the height of the blocks
  • Shuffle Strength - the percentage of blocks that should be swapped. 0 - all the blocks remain in their original place; 1 - all the blocks are swapped.
  • Shuffle Spread - how far apart should the swapping occur. 0 - swaps only the neighbouring blocks; 1 - swaps blocks that are the furthest apart.
  • Shuffle Spread Direction determines the axis where swapping occurs:
    • Horizontal - blocks are moved only in their rows
    • Vertical - blocks are moved only in their columns
    • Both - blocks are swapped anywhere in the image
  • Random Seed sets the order that's used for swapping. Animate this to move blocks around randomly.

    Recursive Mosaic

    Now with MFR, M1 and curve modulation support. Recursive mosaic subdivides the grid further to preserve or discard as much image detail as you like. Useful for novel pixelization effects or jpeg artifacts simulation.

  • Geometric Filter

    • Compatibility After Effects

    Geometric Filter

    Now with MFR & Apple Silicon support. Geometric Filter turns footage into a geometric approximation. It does so by using our custom proximity matching algorithm, which gives it a bit of a human touch, as it can trace contours and similar regions.

    The results are somewhat similar to what you get by using the so-called "style transfer" machine learning algorithms, but with much finer control over the result.

    The plugin is aimed at artistic audiences who wish to simulate hand-drawn styles in music videos, visualizations, etc. and for VJs.
