Theres an effect going on in this movie I would like to know how it is done

NOT any of the form created effects.......but the blue and yellow 'fizzing' on the outline of the first circle (logo) it ALOT of little flame presets?

I am also very interested in the method to constrict said effect to just the outline.

Many thanks in advance

It looks like it may have used 3D Stroke and Shine to get that effect. Though, I don't really know exactly how it's done, the circle looks like a 3D Stroke effect. The "flames" look like 3D Strokes with Shine applied to them, but not sure if there are strokes lined up around the perimeter of the circle to get that effect or if it's some kind of opacity map.

I'm sure if I tried hard enough, I could get the look right... but the animation from the center out to the edges, I'm not sure about. I know that stroke can be made to travel along a path, so that's in the ball park, but to make the effect stroke each path in order like that I'm not sure about. Unless it's a half circle and mirrored.

Maybe it's a challenge... TO THE BATCAVE!
