I found this on Youtube:







and now I am wondering how I can create something similar. I'm not talking about the 3D-text, I'm talking about the background animation - those animated circles and the lights and everything looking glossy.

How can I achieve a smiliar effect? It would be great if there were any useful tutorials. Or maybe someone has already made something like this and could give me some advice (techniques, plug-ins, and so on)

all the best

[Stefan Koler] "How can I achieve a smiliar effect?"

AE's a darned cool application, but it isn't cool enough to do that. The looks you mention -- circles, lights, glossy look -- are done in a 3D application.

There are companies that specialize in this sort of work: google Giant Octopus and Hothaus Design for a representative look-see.

This is definitely advanced AE work that will at least include a couple of imported 3D elements. Look for some tutorials on VideoCoPilot.net - I'm sure they will get you in the right direction...

I think a really good tutorial which would get you in the realm is Making It Look Great 6.
