Animation is essentially nothing more than creating movement. So if you take one of your layers in CompositeLab, move it, then go a few frames farther along, and move it again, it will be animated. I'm guessing there is something more specific you would like to know? What exactly do you want to animate?

If you mean the AlamDV plug-ins, most of the animated ones were done in 3D software, which invariably has a long, steep learning curve and takes a great deal of time and practice to master. But even so, if you could possibly be more specific it would greatly help us answer your question. Which part of which plug-in specifically would you like explained? Or when you said plugins were you actually referring to the presets?

Some were done with Cinema 4D, some were done with Animation:Master, some were done in Blender, some were done in 3D Studio Max, some of the ones I did I used 3D Toolkit, and some of the particle effects were done in Particle Illusion. If you mention a specific plug-in, I can probably tell you which one the creator used.

They were done with Poser, which I happened to leave out of my previous list.
