Hi all,

Got to replicate this super pronto for a client.

can anyone shed some light....
It looks like there is a mini vortex effect going on in here, but can you point out what else is going on to bring the players onto the screen?

The player's silhouettes are stylized, and then that silhouette transitions into the actual footage under the light effect (mini-vortex) as the players enter.

In other words, the vortex doesn't bring the player on; it brings an effected version of the player on, which in turn resolves to the player.

Also, it looks like there are two instances of a lens flare animated as they cross in the middles of the "vortex". Knoll Light Factory or Optical Flares most likely.
