Logo: On a black background a slanted star shape spins in and zooms out. Meanwhile three arcs, one red, one green and one blue, spin in to the right as the star places. A lens flare then passes through the star, as the word "STAR" zooms-out letter by letter and the word below, "RECORDS" spins in. Then a star appears at the "R" of "STAR".

FX/SFX: The logo parts spinning in and zooming out, the light flares.

Music/Sounds: A drum loop with a synth.

Availability: Very rare. Found on videoke VCDs from the Philippines.

Scare Factor: None.

Bandicam 2016-12-11 14-53-40-212

Logo: On a grid background with a green light, the star from before zooms in, then zooms out. Then the word "STAR" zooms in, along with "RECORDS" zooming out while spinning clockwise, the three arcs of the logo zoom in near the star, a red rectangle quickly flips in, and the word "VIDEO" appears in front of the rectangle letter-by-letter, from right to left. The grid also starts to move, and various lights pass through the logo. The logo also spins and faces the top-left. FX/SFX/Cheesy Animation: Very choppy animation compared to before, but it does still look good.

Music/Sounds: A rising synth pad, a faint exploding bass sound, and a rising synth noise, followed by a gloomy synth note, three whooshes, and then a bell synth arpeggio.

Availability: Very common at the time in the Philippines. Appears on more film & videoke releases from the company, such as American Adobo (2002)

Scare Factor: Low.
