Datamosh for After Effects

Real Video Glitching

The latest and greatest of glitch art tools! Datamosh 2 brings 60+ moshing algorithms, 16x more precision, 6 new parameters and a new marker workflow. Remove frames, hijack motion and swap motion from other clips. Use it and brag to your friends.  The new Mosh Maps lets you use grey-scale values to control the mosh intensity regions.

Datamosh 2 is the latest iteration of After Effects glitching that allows you to break video files in countless fashions.

Mosh Maps

Simply add a new map marker, place it over your map layer and use the grey-scale values to control the mosh intensity regions. Happy moshing 🙂


We’ve rebuilt our I-frame deletion functionality to offer you intense precision and stickier moshes. Simply drag a mosh marker to the first frame of a clip, and BLAMO, peace out I frame! Pixels of the previous clip are transposed into the following clip’s motion with 16x more precision than the OG Datamosh.


Highjack Motion

We put the pixel power in your hands! Our new modular workflow utilizes layer markers to surgically construct moshes so you can **** up videos YOUR way! Explore our 60+ preset algorithms and 6+ additional parameters to experience a whole new world of moshing control. Slice Dice and fry up the spiciest moshes.

Swap Motion

Steal from the rich and give to the glitch. The Swap effect makes it simple to steal and inject motion from marked areas in your timeline! Footage driven moshes open doors to uncharted aesthetics and endless creativity. You won’t find this capability anywhere else on the market.


Video compression works by storing some frames as full pictures and some frames as data on where previous pixels are moving (motion vectors). Motion vectors are directions for where pixels from previous frames should be moving from frame to frame.

Datamosh works by ruthlessly tampering with these compression techniques.

What’s New?

Datamosh 2 was rebuilt from the ground up to conquer any itcheness for glitchiness. Find out what we have added!

Marker Workflow

Dial in your moshes by strategically setting markers for where to mosh. Combine multiple mosh markers for a modular experience.

16x More Precise

We’ve made some hefty upgrades to the tracking precision! Expect to find soupier I-frame deletions and more vivid motion vector manipulations.

Moshing Engines

Datamosh 2 = two new moshing engines! We’ve rebuilt our backend moshing software to provide you with the utmost control in punishing pixels as you please 😉

6+ Parameters

Feel like you still don’t have enough control after 60 presets? Good thing for you is that we have new control inputs for Intensity, Acceleration, Blend and Threshold!
