QCA3 plugin UI inside After Effects

A subtle amount of chromatic aberration aka "RGB separation" aka “RGB Split” is a great way to increase the realism of pixel perfect computer graphics. It does for free what many paid RGB Split plugins can’t. Looks great on both motion graphics and CG composites.

Unlike the motion graphics included on this webpage, please use QCA responsibly. Too much chromatic aberration can result in blindness. Remember: do as we say, not as we do.
