Newbie question about creating footage

Hello, I'm a total newbie and just trying to get grounded. I have a decent enough conceptual understanding of how vj software works now, but what I'm unclear on is I see all the footage packs Resolume sells, and I want to know what some of the software or ways available are that I can explore creating my own? Some of it just looks like 3D renders, so I assume programs that cover that would take care of that, but something like

https://resolume.com/footage/timecapsule
https://resolume.com/footage/hand
https://resolume.com/footage/gussshy

I don't even know where I might start, and would sincerely appreciate some pointers so I can start figuring out where to begin with learning and experimenting with things.

Much appreciated!

Hi tapi0ca!
I can't say how these specific footage-packs were made.
However I think a good software to start with is After Effects. Together with the plugin-packs from Red Giant, some creativity and the help of tutorials you can make a lot of amazing stuff.

If it gets into 3d Cinema4D might be worth a look. But there are many other powerful applications out there [urlhttps://www.blender.org/]Blender[/url] is for example open source.

These are just my 3cents, everyone has his own style and own tools to achieve it, I'm sure someone else would suggest other software.

Greetings,
Christoph

Build everything to a metronome so it's seamless and in beat.
