Posterize Mattes In After Effects For Easy Time Displacement Effect

Joe Clay of Workbench.tv demonstrates how to create glitch-type effects in After Effects with a black and white matte, as well as another effect that limits colors before it is applied to an animated layer – all for time displacement purposes!

Time displacement is a great way to make an interesting, fast-paced video. It’s also easy and quick – all you need are some gradients in different colors!

A matte just needs to be a greyscale image. This means that it can be generated by any means, which is why there are so many interesting glitch effects you could create using the Fractal Noise and time displacements!
