looks like the smear effect... it's a bit of a unusual effect, but try this:
  • bring in an image or footage layer to a comp
  • create a mask around the area you want to move (or smear) then set the mode from 'add' to 'none'.
  • create a second larger mask that encompasses the first mask and some other area of the screen (could be the whole screen if you want), setting it to 'none' also.
  • add the smear effect and set the source mask to the first mask, and the boundary mask to the second mask
  • drag the 'mask offset' point to some where outside the first mask.
  • scrub the percent property to 'smear' the portion of the pixels defined by the source mask towards the mask offset point.

it's a little funky, but you can add to the fun with the mask rotation and scale properties.
