In many films(especially trailers) we can see some kind of glitch effects. Recently I found one more here:

Video on FB: link.

I want to try to create one by myself but cant find any useful info. How and where is it possible to make? I would be pleased to see some links and guides.

There are several effects like this available today. If you're using Final Cut Pro X or Motion, you can use the BadTV filter.

There are also 3rd party filters for a variety of platforms including DigiEffects' Damage filters.

You could probably make your own by copying your input video, applying noise, maybe offsetting it, and then masking parts of the result to mix with the original.

  • Thx, but I`m on windows :/ Is there any analogy for windows?

  • I think the DigiEffects works with After Effects and Premiere on Windows. If you want to do it by hand, I would think AE and Premiere have the pieces you need - noise, transformations, etc. Commented Nov 23, 2016 at 1:30
  • oh, thx. I don't think I can do that myself, thats why I asked here how to do that :) I'll look that filter as soon as I can, thx ones more.

You might want to look into http://www.MotionVFX.com .. they have glitch effects as plugins which they sell. For most software and all are quite good customizable.

  • Thx, but looks like the only useful effect mGlitch is only available for Mac :(
