Thanks guys!

Click "Play Video." The reveal is in the first few seconds.

I want to make the swooshes with Riot Gear's ink flows. Is this possible? If not possible with Riot Gear, I'll make them with Particular.

Also, how would I create the effect where the text appears out of the two green disks?

Any help is very much appreciated.

The swooshes look like Trapcode 3D Stroke to me. The text looks like a pretty simple blur/distort/scale.

Thanks Joseph.

So I would just keyframe some blur? That makes sense.

I got an nice ink flow effect with Trapcode Particular on the Smoke preset by luma matting a Riot Gear ink flow over it and its duplicates.

Another creative effect which looks cooler than a blur is to do what's called a Compound Blur, using the luminance values of another animation (inkflow could work, or a noise effect with a wipe left to right added over it) to cause the blur. You can also do the same thing with using luminance values to distort the image. It's a little complicated, but you can do some really cool transitions with it.

Here's a quick rundown on the Compound Blur:

[Tommy Charles] "Also, how would I create the effect where the text appears out of the two green disks? "

That's extremely easy: in that example, it's just a combination of animating horizontal scale and opacity.

Make sure the text layer is center-justified. If you use a logo, it should already have the anchor point at the center, no center-justification necessary.
