    Used Motion 5 and FCPX. This is my first one. I like it.
    Thoughts?

    not sure the sparkly explosion is right at the end.... a bit too much.... the last thing you should see before the fade to black and your actual video starts should be the company name... not an explosion

    just my thoughts

    this link, though its a tutorial for a 3d application has some good pointers

    watch the first part of the video, or read through the text

    How to Create a Professional Logo Animation | Blender Guru


    To me the point of an intro is to implant the name of the company on the minds of the viewer... and people remember the last thing they see....... its your choice if you want to be remembered as BrowniePics or whatshis name...you know ...that guy with the sparkly explosion.

    At the end of the day an intro like this is there to communicate a message....ie name of production company.... not to please you.

    you have done good work there with Motion...but i think you have been seduced a little by the "gee whizz I can do this" aspect of Motion and havent really thought through the purpose of the end result.

    Just my thoughts

    I would think you would end the video on the name not the beginning. But i will look over the link. ANything i can pick up would be great

    In cinema the production logo goes at the beginning.... think 20th Century fox, the MGM lion etc. On TV there is often a very short logo a the end of a program.

    Of course I have watched the video....I wouldn't have posted it if I didn't think it was relevant.

    What you have isn't 'exactly' what he describes.... your intro doesn't end with the logo of the production company.... but with an 'explosion' that destroys your logo. Thats my key point....

    Go look at other intro sequences - generally they build up to a completed logo that hold before fading out. Yours builds up and destroys itself without any real hold. In my mind it fails as an effective intro

    You asked for opinions... I'm offering some.

    Kevin's points are valid. The explosions are a real attention getting, I'd put them at the beginning and at the end I'd do some type of dissolve going from ... say black to your logo. Or, in lieu of the dissolve have your logo transform from small to large. There is a million things you can do, just remember to tell 'em what you're goin' to say, say it, then tell 'em what you said.

    PS- I do like all the various elements you've created.
