This animation starts with a flying logo (built out of 3 EPS layers) on a black background. The middle of the "O" is transparent, so that a background video can be seen through it. Then the logo flies towards you, until it is behind the camera. This creates a cool transition between where the text ends and the video begins. This effect can currently be seen in the opening title of the television game show "deal or no deal".

The video is represented in this demo as a picture layer (layer 4). If you want you can turn it into a video layer (press F9 and press the SELECT VIDEO button) but I think it's better to use a screenshot of the first frame of the video (press F9 and press the SELECT PICTURE button) and use your NLE to sequence the video immediately after the animation.

Thanks to Ryan for the tip!

I tried to download the media file, but it wouldn't download onto my computer. Can someone tell me how Michiel was able to make the middle of the 0 transparent?

What do you mean with "it wouldn't download"?

Any error messages?

Disregard that last message. My computer was just acting up, and it took a little longer than usual for the download box to open up.

Which font was used to create the text?

I want to edit the EPS files, but would like to use the same font.

Thanks!

I'm not sure, I think it's Neuropolitical:
