3D Logo

Hey all,
I need some advise.

I want to create an animated logo for a video game.
It will be a tree blooming, like this one here

So game loads, and this logo is what they see, then game title loads…

I have:
After Effects, Photoshop, Bridge and Illustrator CC
Maya 2014
Unreal 4.8

If I need something else, I am sure I can get it.
What programs would you recommend and are there any tutorials that can help?

FYI: My wife uses a Wacom Intuos-pro and can draw the tree in Photoshop, but I don’t think I want to do a flash video.

It’s probably best to do it in Maya and just play it as a video with the rest of the opening videos. If you don’t have 3D experience though it would be difficult to get it right

Decided on Maya → After Effects…
