Bubbling Video cauldron effect

Hello!

I would like to make an effect in after effects that automatically spawns clouds or bubbles containing time offset reflections of the video playing in the background such that the clouds or bubbles float toward the viewer

For example if someone is speaking in a video clip, clouds or bubbles containing time offset versions of the same clip would float up toward the camera expanding indicating in perspective that they are getting closer, but you would see an overlapping random jumble of the moments that just past, like moving images of moments just past rising toward you in steam clouds

What are some good ways to go about achieving this? Are there any particle systems that make something like this easy such as any of the red giant trapcode stuff?

If you have the money then Trapcode Particular or Wondertouch’s Particle Illusion can do this. However, you should be able to get similar results for free using CC Particle World.

Thank you so much! Do you know how to accomplish this in particular? I see how to make a polygon that is textured from a video but ideally I am looking for something more fluid the way that the built in Foam effect functions where it reflects the layer in the particles.

Another built-in effect that might come in handy is Foam. It can create bubbles that reflect the layer they're placed on.

If you want each individual bubble to have a different part of the clip though, it's not going to work. You'll need Particular from Red Giant for that.
