    This week, I happened upon an effect I hadn’t noticed before. It’s called CC Kernel. It’s part of the Cycore Effects that have been bundled with AE for quite a while now. It’s actually pretty powerful. For more information—kind of—check out the PDF linked on our website (http://workbench.tv/tutorials/2017-08-04_PixelSortingAndMore/). I say kind of because the information is sort of vague unless you understand what convolution matrices are. I have a slight passing familiarity with the concept, but I probably should’ve looked at this Wikipedia article on Convolution Matrices (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_(image_processing)) before plowing into this tutorial, haha. And check this site out as well! (http://setosa.io/ev/image-kernels/)

    There’s a lot of interesting things that can be done with CC Kernel. The most interesting to me, so far, is the ability to detect some edges while leave other edges invisible. If you can find ways to exploit that you can probably come up with some interesting effects.
