In this episode of Red Giant TV, Harry Frank shows you how to create the classic Special Presentation logo seen on network TV back in the late 70's and early 80's. To get the effect, he'll demonstrate a powerful technique for mapping color over time.

Is this possible to do with a vectorized logo instead of typed text?

Trying to open the provided .aep files, and SpecialPresentation_Final.aep causes a crash as soon as it opens. Something about the Point Control.

@Verenice - After Effects has a Text Engine. Choose: Layer > New > Text - and then type your text.

I'm a complete beginner at this and was wondering how you first created the compsthe "Special" text, etc. that you import to use and edit in AE. Thanks so much and sorry for the elementary question. I just keep seeing tutorial videos import these kinds of files and wonder how one makes them to begin with.

Sorin - just install with your installer using your serial number, and it will be placed in the right location automatically. No importing needed.
