Is there a way to accomplish this effect in Effectslab Pro some way?

I'm pretty sure it could be made using a bunch of object masks and animated textures on a neon light effect. smile

You could use a VideoCopilot effect (one in Riot Gear).

:EDIT: if you want me to give it a shot (in Visionlab) I will, and I'll make a tutorial.

Please do. I've tried doing a 3d swirl thing but can't get the transparency to work correctly. I can't show you what it looks like since it would take forever to upload since I have dial-up internet and can't go to a friends house at the moment.
