It really depends on how much you care about realtime operation. VSTs tend to be used both for production and performance, but with video, because there's so much more processing involved, things tend to be split between production and performance. That being said, for production, After Effects plugins are probably the closest analogy. For performance, ...

Apple Motion will let you create "motion templates" which are usable in FCPX. You can apply 3D transforms with Motion, and publish to Final Cut. This approach is easy to learn, but limited in scope.

If I have to make this manually, I would do the following: Create/Draw the blue Logo in Illustrator as its seen in the final frame. Breakdown and place spread ink into separate layers, like 4 or more. To make the drawing animation, create a path "using pen tool" along the lines of the blue Logo, make sure that the path is thick enough to cover the lines. ...

Those paint splats are often done with stock footage or filmed footage. Get a black or green surface, throw some paint at it and film it. Bring it in to AE and extract the alpha from the luma or with chroma-key and then re-colour the paint however you like using your colour correction tools of choice. To make liquid effects in AE without footage, here's the ...

The Resolve scripting API comes with DaVinci Resolve Studio. The most platform-agnostic way of finding it is through the Resolve "help" menu, under Help->Documentation->Developer. This will open a folder in your system browser which contains scripting examples for LUA, PYTHON, OFX, and more. The README.txt file in the scripting folder ...

If your show requires some level of postproduction, then: 1 Record the live video feed of the presenter's slideshow. Don't just export the slides as a movie from Keynote. Syncing slides manually will definitely keep you up into the wee hours of the morning, so don't do it. 2 Import the camera feed(s) of the speaker, any extra audio sources, and the ...

It is indeed impossible to put a title over a clip inside a multi cam clip... Unless you turn that clip into a compound clip. Then you can add whatever overlay you want to it. So you will have: keyframed clip with crosshair overlay inside a compound clip inside a multicam clip Just right click your the clip inside your multicam clip and choose New ...

In addition to the AfterEffects plug-in API, there's also FxPlug, OpenFX, and AVX plug-ins. FxPlugs often work in real-time because they tend to utilize the GPU. They work in FCPX and Motion. OpenFX plug-ins can work in a variety of hosts (sometimes requiring an adaptor), but as far as I know, they aren't real-time usually. They work in Sony Vegas and I ...

The animations could be pre-rendered video's edited in the final movie, but the animations are probably made with a plugin in Adobe After Effects as listed above. I could not identify all of the plugins, but you can start off with the "Particle" plugin used for the particles coming from her fingers.

I use the trapcode suite as well, the issue has more to do with the fact that even though you may be working in an sRGB workspace at 32 Bit; your monitor output is 8 bit. 10 Bit monitors are available but unless you forked up a lot of cash - you are viewing 8-bit. The way to solve gradient problems like this - with this as well as any other gradient in AE/...

The free Copy Image plug-in should work. The plug-in is executed via Edit -> Copy image. As the readme states, The image is copied as an 8bits per channel image. If the active project is 16 or 32bits per channel, downsampling is performed.

There is a plugins folder in your installation directory. Whether you are on mac or a windows machine, all installed plugins are listed there. Search for a tutorial, the manual or some images to identify in which area or viewport it's used.

In that case Adobe After Effects can do this easily, which probably also produced the effect in the video. It's actually the only software where I know you can do this without too much manual labor. Other products usually only offer a timer effect which would be tedious to use for these kind of things. Though if you want to do this based on just a single ...
