So I was messing around with 3ds a little and figured it would be cool to have an animated ESF Logo... :)
Took me a couple of hours (!) to do this thing but its the first time I'm dealing with procedural generated textures, controllers, constraints and whatsoever in max.
And this is my first rendered movie ever so bear with me haha

Not done yet but I hope you like it

@ Pixel : I think the reason why it shakes is because the dragonballs are rushing in and creating a shockwave type disturbance so thats showing it off more vividly.

I think it's very excellent!

yeah the shaking is intended (and gave me a pretty hard time to create >_<)

However, I'm not satisfied with the animation of the big ESF and of that red ... thing on the left side of the logo.
Any ideas how to animate those/improve?

yeah lots of ideas, There is a thing called dope sheet in max, try to use it
same with the curver editor, max also has thing's like noise, well, many other effects, i think that you should make the esf sign shine a bit more, and animate the reflections, preety easy and cool
come to msn, and i will shurly tell ya more : P

It's not the ESF shaking, it's the camera while the Dragonballs are flying through it, and I think it's an awesome effect.
It looks like the logo itself is shaking cause there's no background.

I think you should keep the shaking when the Dragonballs enter the scene but remove the shaking when the silver text appears, insted try to have something like a spark of light going through the logo, shining it or something.

Also, the orange ( thingy kinda clips through the ESF text, try to fix it too and you're all good.

It's really cool though, I love it =D

Dont get rid of the shake, it's a great effect and adds a lot.
Just get rid of the shake at the end with the silver text.

I agree with Pixel, make the ESF text come from the middle and a bit faster if possible.

Otherwise, I loves it =O

P.S.
Dont forget that sound effects will add so much to it <3

i dont agree, keep the shake at the end, and remake the "start" shake to make it shake only when its hited by the bals, just like with the text shake at the end. gj
shake shake shake!

I like the way the red thing moves in the first one but the rest of the stuff from the second one. It's really good keep it up.
It looks kind of like a news thing that comes up. Like the current MOTM that comes then there are new models and theyre like "Gohan went platinum with his blah blah blah" and then showed the clip lol
(nice sig DJ, did you vector it?)
