Use The Content Aware Fill Feature to Create 2.5D or "Parallax Effects"

Use Content Aware Fill to Create 2.5D
The newest version of Adobe brings this long desired feature and here's one more cool thing to do with it. 

Digi Pro Tips brings us this video tutorial explaining precisely how you can use the new feature to create this effect.

This is far from the only thing people will be doing to wow us with the new feature, but it's one more to add to your toolbox. Please share others you find in the comments.

Uh, so now instead of spending five minutes in photoshop first, you just spend those five minutes in after effects?

no offence brother .... but this is exactly the same as what we've all been doing for years .... but running the file thru photoshop first instead of ae; separating foreground element ... using content aware and other fine tuning tools such as patch to fill in the background, and manipulating with 3d layers and camera.

You are way better off with an animated displacement map (no expansive AE needed, free Resolve can this, too).
