Hacksaw: The First Of It’s Kind

Hacksaw is the first plugin of it’s kind. Built using a next-gen random number sequencer, Hacksaw allows you to create randomly generated displacement patterns all with the click of a button. Just apply Hacksaw to your footage and adjust the seed values to unlock millions of unique displacement patterns.

Built-In Animation Engine

Hacksaw comes with a built-in animation engine to bring your displacement to life. Crank it up for a rapid-fire glitch effect or take it slow and watch the displacement pattern scan across your image. And, if you’d rather take matters into your own hands, you can easily disable the animation altogether. Perfect for those of us who prefer a deeper control over their image.

Harness The Power of Chaos

Take control over the chaos with Hacksaw’s unique blend of abilities. While all of Hacksaw’s displacement patterns are randomly generated, you can still maintain a deep level of control over your image thanks to the integrated generation algorithm. Easily adjust the intensity, direction, speed, seed value, and edge behavior of your displacement.

Want some extra chaos? Well, you’re in luck. Hacksaw has a slider for that.
