Re: AE Transform Effect? by Paul Roper on Feb 2, 2012 at 9:16:32 pm
It looks like a couple of 3D layers (one as a ground plane, one as a "wall" at the back) which are probably either just AE solids or maybe something made in Photoshop to get that dark shading without having to rely on lights too much.
There's a lens flare over the top at the start, with keyframed brightness and position.
Then the "place your logo here" comes in with some translucent shape layer animation behind it.
Plus there's a bit of particle animation going on to get those dots hovering around - probably using Trapcode Particular; but you can get the same results using the built-in particle plug-ins.
