An idea I had for loading something that takes an undefined amount of time — as opposed to something like downloading files which is basically a known amount of time.
Check out the attachment for a rough GIF that just makes me wish I'd taken the time to learn After Effects.

Looks good...like you're underwater. You have to keep at it so that it looks like a single loop.
@Mike Puglielli Definitely. I either need to learn After Effects or get someone to develop it for me. It's a "teach a man to fish" thing.
Its tough, but you can totally do it in Photoshop. Takes some practice. This is a loop I made for practice, all in Photoshop. Not perfect of course...Also, I wouldn't really advocating buying After Effects if you aren't doing a lot of animation.

Here is a small practice. It isn't pretty and it is fast just because I didn't have time to make too many frames. Here is the file's psd you can view as resource.
Ideally I made it 13 frames. The smaller light ray does 2 rotations during this 13 frames, so it takes 6 frames for one rotation while the larger ray (colored red to make it easier to see) does only 1 rotation during these 13 frames. This gives the effect that the smaller rays are moving faster than the big, a great way to add depth. Animating in PS can be tricky, though. In order to make the loop correct, you have to have the last frame, #13, be in the position before frame #1 so that the transition is seamless on the loop (So if frame #1 is located 200pixels in, #13 should be 150pixels, for example). Hopefully this makes sense and helps...

I've already got it with the suite. I totally could've looped it, I just didn't want to spend the time last night.
Ah Great! Sorry for misunderstanding :)
