NEW! Topograph Plugin is now on sale on Go check it out !

Pixel Sorter is loading


AE Pixel Sorter was the first tool to bring the pixel sorting glitch effect available for motion designers and video editors within After Effects. Experimenting with Pixel Sorting just became so much easier!

Since its launch, AEPS had a huge success in Broadcast TV, Live performances, VJs, Music Videos, Video Games, Photography and even Apparel!

I’m very happy to release the version 2 of the plugin, hoping it will push this effect much further by allowing you to create more innovative visuals. I’ve re-coded the core algorithm to make it faster and more intuitive. I’ve also added new creative and technical features to it.

Have fun sorting !
