    Video Intro Animation Design?

    Not sure if anyone knows anybody but I am looking to get a looped video made of my logo appearing to put onto screens. Please point me in the right direction. Also looking for a good program to generate moving text in.

    I think what you're looking for is a gif animator. I haven't used one since the early versions of Microsoft Front Page, which came with one. You can get free software to do it now. Just Google "gif animator".

    You can make Gif.s in Photoshop too. Or you can check Adobe After Effects
    It's not so simple but you can find some video tutorials

    the standard for motion graphics is after effects (often paired with a 3D package) but that motion program looks like it would do the trick. photoshop and .gifs are useless motion graphics.

    GIMP can do pretty much the same as Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator.. although it's not as user-friendly and a bit more complicated, partially because of the script engine. You need to know more about how transitions and animation stuff works because afaik GIMP has no "tweening" (short for in-betweening which is a PS feature) or video render; the tweening in GIMP is achieved using Python/Ghostscript or similar code which can be confusing at first.

    Back in the day (like when Photoshop was CS2) I used to do animation by hand which is an accurate method if you're persistent enough but due to the fact that there were no "Unify layer"-commands and stuff the end results were sort of goofy.. but it's a good thing too; a lot of stuff has to be fine-tuned frame by frame after the main animation sequences.

    EDIT : I just read an Adobe Photoshop CS4 handbook which I picked up from the library... I haven't really done animation in like 10 years..
