There all done! However I do suggest you to add some Glow in Video Post to both Textures, I have the glow set to 2, 1 might do the trick too...

When you render out your animation set render from 0 to 300 frames.

hope you enjoy the tutorial! All suggestions and question please post on the forum at www.3D-Warriors.com.
