Help needed for3d pattern animation

I'm looking for some tips on how to make some short animated clips with a simple geometric pattern that has some animation and lighting effects to make it look 3d. There's some links here for a better idea of what I mean.

Each one of those ideas has a different setup, so impossible to just tell you how to do it in a forum post unless you can be very specific about which setup you want to create. However, I would speculate that lighting alone cannot give you this effect, and most of the setups in your example are using true 3D geometry with cloners and effectors to get the movements. So your simple geometric pattern, whatever format that is in, needs to become a 3D model so that you can clone it into the grids you need, and affect those clones via the normal Mograph methods...
