For my Ident I will attempted to use Adobe After Effects. I have found a number of tutorials but my favourite, and the one I think will be easiest to follow is this one : I like this ident idea as it looks like a search light and I like the way the light flows over the texture, I thought I could do something similar but use wood or bark as the texture instead to keep everything linked.

Because I have never used After Effects before it is helpful as it goes through everything step by step. Also the website has many other useful tutorials for Adobe After Effects with lots of different techniques and ideas.
