Firstly, may i say: Don’t be daunted by just jumping in and ‘dablling’ in After Effects by yourself.
Please download a FREE trial copy of After Effects CS6 here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Graphic-Editors/Adobe-After-Effects.shtml
NOW is the time to get into it, because soon, Adobe will not have free trial and you will have to pay $50 a month for After Effects CS7 (CC) onwards!!!
So, once downloaded the free trial, It really is quite easy to get started, and particularly editing Logo templates is the easiest - You just click the Layer and edit the text, or drop in your logo - Done!
There are many tutorials and resources on the web to help if you need it. But it is highly simple and VERY rewarding if you could spend maybe 40 minutes playing around with the Free Trial of After Effects, Then buy your logo template, then edit it yourself. You’ll be Amazed!
