Dvd-4-U Entertainment (With Presents Variant) (1999)

1999-2008 (Opening) Edit

Logo: We see an observatory near a lake in a nighttime environment. Suddenly, a light sweeps underneath it, and the observatory swings around to the sky. We then cut to the lens of the telescope to reveal a "DVD-4-U" logo mostly with a line, which slides in from the left and comes in initially out of focus before clearing up. The logo then zooms in and "PRESENTS" replaces it.

FX/SFX: The CGI observatory.

Cheesy Factor: The well-animated observatory sequence contrasts sharply with how cheap the logo-revealing sequence is.

Music/Sounds: A laser sound, followed by a synth theme.

Availability: Seen on the DVD of Ultimate Aircraft DVD Box Set.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music can startle some and it's noting compared with the next logo...

DVD International (2001)

1999-2008 Edit

Nickname: "Universal Rip-off"

Logo: On a space background, we see the lens flare spinning then it flashes to planets to move. The words "DVD INTERNATIONAL" with the logo sliding and it shines. It freezes when it fades to black.

FX/SFX: Outdated CGI...

Cheesy Factor: ...and not to mention that the "starfield" is from the good-old "Stars" screensaver from Windows XP, and the Earth looks awfully dated (looks early 80's).

Music/Sounds: An explosion, an inhaling sounds, a sword sound when the lens flare spins, a boom sound when the logo flashes, a piano music, a synthesized music when the camera stops, a ding sound when the logo shines and a bell toll when the logo freezes.

Availability: Seen on the DVD of Aquaria: The Coral Reef Aquarium.

Scare Factor: Low, because of the flashes, music and freeze.
