From the instructor:

Which Plugins have I used? Video copilot's Saber Plugin? Red Giant's Trapcode Particular & Form? Or even Cinema 4D? Wrong :). No Plugins! Just built-in standard effects. Here’s a hint. I used the card dance effect for the disintegration effect as well as CC Light Rays to enhance the scanlines. And wow, Rotobrush 2.0 is totally amazing! By the way I always try to create everything without any plugins
