Shine creates realistic 3D light rays shining from the hot interior of this molten planet. The logo is part of the bright light source picked up Shine.
Shine Smoke Reveal
This video uses the Fractal Noise effect to create realistic smoke in the rays. A logo and a smokescreen are set up on 3D layers, with the smoke layer between the animated camera and the logo. Shine is applied to an adjustment layer, and the smoke layer is used as a luma matte.

A SHORT MOVIE INSPIRED ON NUMBERS, GEOMETRY AND NATURE.

Trapcode Shine and Starglow were used to enhance the highlights, and Knoll Light Factory was used for Lens Flare generation. Some before and After images:
