Need Help with Swirling Game Effect

Hi, I am trying to do a swirling glow that radiates outward using an image and animation nodes. Is this possible in Blender using an image and animation nodes or an animated .png and a plane?

You could play around with a standard flat smoke spiral simulation?

Wow. This is great Atom thanks!

Does anyone know if instead of using particles is there a way to use an “image” so the image expands from The Center and radiates out. Please see the link to understand what I mean? Thanks.

Like this but radiating outward like the link shows above. The image was created using a single image which you can see in the video link.
