WARNING: Do not watch the video if you have epilepsy.

Nicknames: "Mirror Melisa", "First Time on Sony Vegas", "Morphing Word"

Logo: On a black background, a blue circle grows in, and then zooms in quickly as it turns into a bordered one, leaving the wordmark "MELISA". There's a pink glow on the logo and the S is stretched out to the width of the entire text. The screen flashes in blue like a strobe light for a few seconds. The logo disappears, and then appears again with changing mirror effects added on it. The logo disappears again, as various squares zoom in and show again the same logo. That logo is affected again by changing mirror effects, just like the previous seconds. This happens for about almost 20 seconds before the logo disappears and appears again with a triangular transition.

FX/SFX: The flashing, mirror effects and transitions.

Music/Sounds: A cheap, but catchy synth-funk theme.

Availability: Seen on a French VHS releases, such asFour Flies on Grey Velvet

Editor's Note:This logo suggests that the animators just wanted to use their new video editing programs just for thesake of having funwith it, making it look like something you can currently make with Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator and Sony Vegas in 30 minutes. The music also seems like it came from a MIDI (even though it didn't exist at the time!).
