Nothing elaborate. Just something simple and gets the point across. Thought I would display it. biggrin

Looks pretty good.

I sped the film up 2x and it looks better that way (just during the part where the lightning bolt creates the letters). I think the video is too slow the way it is, IMO.

And I think it would look a lot better if you threw in another lightning bolt or two or three, coming from other areas of the screen (perhaps below the logo?) aiming at the same spot as well...?

And perhaps give the screen a slight shake/rumble (not too much, just enough to show that the letters being created needs "a LOT of power". smile) while the letters are being made, then clam down when it's finished to show a good view of what your film company name is. Then go back into your hectic shaking afterwards.

I agree. Speed it up a little. Other than that, I like it.

I used Adobe After Effects and Tapcodes Shine plugin. The camera shake is an animation preset that I found on the net.

Here is an update on the logo:

I think I may have increased the speed a little more than intended but it doesn't look bad IMO. I've also added some lightning. cool

Much better. The transition at the end is nice, but the text stays in frame... maybe you could try continuing what you've got going on there except making it shake out of focus or something like that.

its a lot better 2nd imo. just maybe make it a little longer when the lightning is done. just a second or 2, but that might ruin it, idk.

Yeah AE is pretty cool. The shine plugin is cool too. Premiere is more geared towards editing video and some compositing stuff. Thanks for the comments guys. biggrin

Wow, great work mate - especially the improvement... The second version is looking much better than the first, which wasn't that bad to start off with! smile

Again, great work!

Well I guess that means I'm free to use some of them for a bit of force lightning or something. "He he" biggrin

If I were you, I'd hold the pause a bit longer than that. Didn't give me much time to see it not moving.
