Hi Guys,

Does anyone have a good starting point for creating this effect?

The idea is there's a video playing in one layer, and that video is the "sucked into" an object on another layer.

I've done a little bit of playing with warping and distortions and I wonder if I'm on the wrong path, or if there's a plug-in to help with this effect.

I'm using AE CS5.

Thanks!

Free form is what you want to use.
