Warning: On the same aurora background as the 1997-2000 CIC Video logo, we see the word "WARNING" and generic text in a white Russell Square Regular font. Behind it is a faded "CIC" in its familiar font. At the end of the tapes, a longer set of warning text scrolls up with the faded CIC.When the text is already finished scrolling up, the background stays on for 2 seconds before it fades out.

On early DreamWorks Home Entertainment releases, technically under the CIC Video label, the faded "CIC" was removed. In 2000, it was reused for Paramount releases.

At the end of DreamWorks tapes, when the text is already finished scrolling up, the background fades out early.
