    Hey Venkat, I included the project file, so you can examine the code.

    I just thought that it looked like a mirrored sinewave, multiplied by the height of a circle (the extremes always are flat), and so I implemented that, with a slider that controls if we’re viewing a “1” multiplied by a circle or the sines multiplied by a circle.

    The resulting shape has “rotobezier” checked and some round corners to help with the smoothness.

    I think some other examples in your GIF are actually in 3D, not sure if the original animation was done in After Effects at all.

    In 3D, it could be something like this:
