Hello!

I woud like to create 2D looking lava lamp like animation. I have been searching for plugins for After Effects online but I haven't been able to find anything. I attached the sample which is similar to what I am looking for but animated. Any tips, suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance!

It looks to me as if this might be able to be done using the Noise plugin, with possibly some Edge and Threshold settings, in comination with Colorama, or Tritone, which would do the coloration. It will be largely a matter of experimentation. There are no hard and fast settings to achieve something such as this. In this case, the Brainstorm feature of After Effects could prove to be useful; in case you don't know about it, it will let you choose a bunch of parameters in the effect, then Brainstorm will randomly alter them, showing you the results of the changes.

You are quite welcome. You will find that the Brainstorm tool comes in very handy when you're working with the plugins such as Noise, which don't really have any set look, but are so variable that you can achieve a thousand different looks with them.

If you have a static image made in Illustrator, save as jpec and import to AE, then apply:

Effects & Presets > distort > Turbulent display > change the setting

cheers
