New AE Plugin: "BAD TV" Distortion

Even though you can achieve a similar looking effect with Fractal Noise, Displacement Map filters along with some effort, it is not that easy to make changes or get a realistic TV distortion effect. It’s not rocket science but somehow it looks artificial if its done with just distortion based on noise values. So I came across a wonderful Core Image filter written by which produces amazing & realistic Bad TV distortion. I ported this to Pixel Bender now, and it supports both Windows/Mac CS4.

It is now priced at 20$. For Download and Usage instructions, visit the following link.
