I have an image with an animated image effect (a nice glitch effect) and would like to recreate the effect as a filter that can be applied to other images or videos using graphics libraries like OpenCV instead of graphic programs.
On what Stack Exchange site should I ask?
I want to create the effect as code, so Stack Overflow comes to mind. But I do not need help creating the effect, I need help understanding the parts the effect is composed of (e.g. brightness change, pixelisation, etc.) and the order of these processing steps, so I need the help in the analysis and not for the program that should mimic the effect. In addition I am not sure how many people there are skilled in creating graphics (as in "applying a series of effects to an image to create the wanted appearance", not as in "programming an effect when I already know how it works").
Stack Exchange has some sites for computer artists, but I fear that the question may be too broad there and I am not sure if they can tell tell elements or just functions (e.g. in Photoshop) that execute a lot of different steps to create such an effect.
Is the question suitable for Stack Exchange at all?
I just asked on Meta Graphic Design but will keep this question open for more opinions on where I could get the best help.
To make it easier to decide: Here is the video fragment: https://imgur.com/zE1trPM
I would like to create a similar effect. It does not need to be exactly the same and when people suggested what parts the effect is composed of I may even combine them in a slightly different way. The main goal is to create such a scifi/cyberpunk effect using different video filters.
I tried to create a few parts, e.g., the blocky moving noise and then I noticed that it will only work like in the video, when I understand the effects that are applied to the noise itself.
EDIT: I try computer graphics for a start. It seem still to be a small community, but probably with people who have an idea how to apply effects in real-time.
