not bad

a few things you may want to consider
- doing it a little faster, imo 10 seconds is a bit long for a logo animation
- doing a blendshape on the straggling particles so that they settle in faster
- crossfade of the actual logo overtop of the particles at the end so that it resolves into a nice solid logo

thanks allegro .. that feedback does help … i too think that the animation could be a lil faster.

I have done a few more things with the text and the full settlement of the text as well … could check the new link and tell me whether there still the need of blendshapes in your opinion.

blendshapes are probably not necessary, it's just one way of hacking particles to go where you want them when you want them.

I like this one better, but it still feels too slow to me. The initial speed of everything is fine, but once the text is out and the only thing moving are the particles it feels like I'm waiting too long to see it finish.

I don't know what kind of constraints you have on the time that the animation needs to be, but I would consider speeding up the end of it.
