They’re nothing new, but these split depth GIFs have seen a surge in popularity recently. Here’s how they work: Split depth GIFs create a false depth to an image by splitting it into layers with white lines. This allows the portions of the animation to appear as if they are “bursting through” the front of the lines and right into your face. The effect is pretty cool, even if some of them do make us lean back a little. Want to see some of these awesome GIFs yourself? We’ve compiled 18 of them below for your viewing pleasure. The last one is so well-executed, it almost feels like a 3D movie.
