Animating a logo with the Fracture object

The MoGraph Fracture Object allows you to treat objects that are not clones as if they were clones. What I mean by that is that the Cloner object creates copies of objects, but what do you do when you have all the copies you want and you want to simply modify them with Effectors? Well, that's where the Fracture object comes in. So I've got a very simple logo here, and I've hidden the lights and environment and camera underneath this Null object here. And you can see if I make them visible, there's the lights and the camera. I'm going to make the top dot red and then twirl that closed.

And underneath my logo parent, I've got an Extrude NURBS object and I've got my separate paths for the type in the Shapes. The way the Fracture object works is that it treats whatever you put under there as if it were either made up of clones, or if it's a group of objects, then it will keep those objects as individual clones, and that's what we want to do for our logo parts....
