This is a quick example of a rewind effect I created for an After Effects based client piece. This effect was achieved using standard After Effects plugins and no additional footage.

I used fractal noise, directional blur, displacement map, Numbers/Timecode and in combination with time remapping.

The OSD font is a freebie on It's called PixelSplitter.

This effect could be extended, and made to fast forward and probably pause with a little bit of additional tweaking.

Hoping to do a tutorial on how to achieve this soon.
