Apart from the dithering, what's going on in this video? I can't work it out it's as if some sort of kaleidoscope effect is happening? Confused!

Looks like pixel motion frame blend, possibly from separate source footage, and a posterization effect, which can be done with curves.

Interesting, how do you do a frame blend using separate source footage??

Thanks for your help!

Well, that's what it looks like, but it's not really possible to use a different source in After Effects. What I would try is the following, assuming the video is 6 seconds long (I didn't time it):

1) take still images of the video, at even intervals, about 1 second apart (so 6 or 7 stills for 6 seconds)
2) make a video from those frames
3) stretch the 6-7 frame video to the original length using pixel frame blending

That might end up looking similar to this effect.

Weird! Might be an animated find edges filter with a color ramp or tint
