I was working on a project that required some digital graffiti being drawn on the wall. In order to accommodate it, I created the little preset called Graffitize.

You feed an image or an animation to the preset, and it turns it into a grungy looking graffiti. It is easy to do it now, when After Effects supports layer styles, but back in the day of AE 5.5, such runarounds were necessary.
