Hi guys! I'm pretty new to AE so I don't know how easy this is, but I'm trying to get a logo to bob on the water and then be pulled under. I want this to look as naturally as possible. Any help would be great, thanks!

This requires Cinema 4D, but it's one option for you...

Since you're new, you should look at creating keyframes manually to achieve the effect. Another option is to use Motion Sketch and then the Smoother (if required).

Use AE's Help Menu to get you to the right places for additional documentation on the buzz words I've mentioned.

Good Luck

If you're thinking about looking at the logo from above as it goes under, you might want to look at the Wave World and Caustics effects. There's an old tutorial on the Cow showing how to drop a logo into a swimming pool, I seem to remember - might be worth a look.
