There is a nice simple animation that animates on with 3 square layers using 'scale and rotation'

on the last square the logo has a alpha matte applied which animates off which then reveals the footage behind it.

I just cant seem to re create this

I can have a solid using a track matte which wipes off but the layer behind it blocks out the footage behind the logo/layer at the top

Does any one know how to do this?

Thanks in advance is driving me crazy

Use a second instance of that logo layer. Parent it to the visible one. Use it as an alpha inverted matte for the desired video. I'm pretty sure if you animate its opacity, you'll get what you want.
