Trying to reproduice ke$ha's video effect
on Jan 1, 2010 at 10:10:51 pm

hello everybody!
happy new year!

I'm trying to reproduice ke$ha's video distortion effect but i can"t understand or find a good way to do it

here's a link to the video :

the effect happens at 30 secs or so

i tried with displacement maps, offsets, or even liquify effects, but none of these worked :(
can you help me?

i was also wondering if there was a way to automate that kind of animations with some expressions, since the girl is like diplicated 3 times, would it be possible to multiply her X times with expressions?

thx a lot you guys, creative cow's comunity is the best!

It just looks like three copies of the layer masked out and animated on the x-axis. Maybe a bit of distortion on the edges, but it's hard to tell on this YouTube video.

I personnally don't know how to do this but I'm pretty sure this product called Riot Gear by VideoCopilot is capable of producing a very similar effect, head over to: to see details about the product. Hope that helped!
