Can anyone tell me how to get that invisibility effect seen on the demo reel on the Fxhome home page?

This effect is called a "displacement map," and can be done in either CompositeLab Pro or VisionLab Studio. Basically you just apply the Displacement Map option to a piece of greenscreened footage, and use masks to animate the effect spreading out.
