Datamoshing is the practice of intentionally using compression artifacts in digital video and animated GIFs. The image above is made to resemble a look created by a technique called "data corruption". This process usually involves manually offsetting the horizontal bands and changing hues within a hex editor.
Tools in the DAMAGE suite work great to recreate this effect in seconds! Try combining Artifact and Blockade to achieve a style similar to the above image.
Need an even faster look? Not to worry, we have a plethora of free presets available here. Try mixing different presets for an even more custom effect.
