What sort of software would one use to create this kind of infographical videos?

There was a question a few weeks (?) ago that asked what software was used to create this animation. I believe the answer as Adobe After Effects.

This looks quite similar, so I'm going to go with Adobe After Effects made this. Not 100%, but you COULD make this with AE.

Well, you would definitely need something additional for the 3d modeling, such as the red weapons shown in one of those.

Yeah, After Effects is definitely the major composition tool here, but there is some more going on with the 3d stuff. Perhaps Maya or Lightwave.

Best Guess:

90% After Effects
10% some 3d program . . .

Apple markets a product called Motion which tries to service the same space as After Effects with regard to compositing.

Response by poster: Thanks for all the answers. I guess I was wondering if there's some video-compositing tool which does 3d as well (not modeling, but the whole "flat image comes in from behind the camera" sort of thing).

Response by poster: Hmm, it looks like after effects does 3d, after all.
Cool, thanks!
