Freebie: Quick Chromatic Aberration for After Effects | Plugin Everything
Plugin Everything has a nice little plug-in that quickly creates Chromatic Abberation (RGB separation) that can make pixel perfect computer graphics feel more like it was shot with a lens.
A subtle amount of chromatic aberration aka “RGB separation” is a great way to increase the realism of pixel-perfect computer graphics. Quick Chromatic Aberration is a free plugin to add that effect with minimal effort. Looks great on both motion graphics and CG composites.
Compatible with AE versions CS6 and up, Windows & Mac.
Note: You will need to sign up with your email address to get the freebie from Plugin Everything.
Looking for something a little beefier?
Here are a few other plug-ins that offer RGB separation, work with AE, and are available in a variety of price ranges:
