Well, there's a minute of my life wasted. What are you talking about? I saw nothing even approaching your description. Do you have a time when this occurs?

You pre-comp your source, then duplicate that precomp in the project three times, & label the comps R / G / B.
Then to each pre-comp you apply Channel > Set Channel to each and for R in the red channel it should read red, then in green & blue you turn it off. Then do the same for B 'blue' you make sure the blue channel is on blue, then switch the others to off etc.. Then turn the layer mode for the pre-comp to 'ADD' except the bottom layer.

Now you can add any form of distortion you want to your layers and anything where they don't line up you will get the channel colour splits.

And because the layers are duplicates of one pre-comp, all you have to do is swap out your source footage if you change the edit or want to use it on something else.

Dave LaRonde, whole video look at sides of it, do you see RGB split and blur on sides of video?

Colin J Smith, seems like RGB split effect bigger on sides and less in center. Do you see?

If its bigger at sides you have two options. Stick another layer of your pre-comp on top and stick a circular mask over it with a huge feathered edge.

Or when you distort the RGB, use Distort > Mesh Warp on one or two of your R / G / B layers and set it to probably 3 rows & 3 columns, then slightly pull out the edge vertex's.

Feel free to stick on an adjustment layers over the top of everything and add a Fast Blur probably set at 1 or 2 and either mask off similar to the first options layer. Or maybe apply it instead to a couple of your R / G / B layers.

Also they probably used some plugin for the look.

this effect is called chromatic aberration.

here's an article showing several ways of achieving this effect: https://www.provideocoalition.com/chromatic-aberration-fix/
