I'm really interested to know how this logo animation can be achieved inside of AE. Masking? or is there a special effect that could replicate this sort of animation?

(28 seconds, 9hd logo)

Thank you.

You can easily use a plugin like ShapeShifter AE from Mettle to extrude the basic shape of the logo from a 2d file and add reflections by creating a animated reflection map and playing around with the Material controls inside the plugin.
You can also build a 3d model and use C4D or Element3D with lights and animated environments to achieve the same effect.
A third option would be to use plugins like Bevel and Emboss, CC Light Sweep and animated masks to try and replicate the reflections and give the impression of a 3d object.
