Video Collection International that have been released by Video Collection International Ltd.

1995-2005 (Late 1995/11th September 1995 to 27th June 2005)

Logo: In front of a black background, there is a grey wire frame globe, a bright light emitting godrays in the top left of the screen and some gray mist below, and in front of those, a metal object flips in, along with a red sphere. This is later revealed to be the "C" in "VCI", which flips around as it zooms out (with the sphere in the center). The letters "V" and "I" would later spin in and arrange themselves vertically.

Variants:

  • There are 2 DVD variants.
    • The DVD logo, which is also metallic, forms in the top right of the screen. This variant appears in a 16:9 ratio and mainly appears on widescreen DVDs.
    • The VCI text fades out, the light glows and the DVD logo fades in. This variant appears in a 4:3 ratio and appears mainly on fullscreen DVDs (some widescreen DVDs though, use this variant despite the logo remaining in fullscreen)
  • On Sindy the Fairy Princess, after the logo ends, everything except the VCI text fades to black and the text moves to the left on the screen. The Optical Image logo fades into the right side and the word 'Presents' appear.

FX/SFX: Very good computer animation that still holds up very well today.

Music/Sounds: A synth chime theme is heard alongside some whooshing sounds, with mechanical sounds for the VCI text arranging. Near the end, there are two deep synth notes, ending with a clang and a final chime.

Availability: Common. Can be seen on the start and end of many releases from this time, including Phoenix Nights, Insektors, Engie Benjy and later Rosie And Jim and Thomas The Tank Engine releases, among others.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The music might scare some, but it's at least a favorite among many.
