On-screen graphics on top of live action video
This is a piece we did for Beauty Now, and in several scenes, we showed a user interacting with the app and showed the user interface as on-screen graphics:
3D environment with 2D conceptual motion graphics

Examples of 2D motion graphics are what most of this video for the City of Houston Open Data program uses:
2D Animation of Software Screenshots
Or you can animate the screenshots from the software:
3D Promotional Video with 3D Conceptual Graphics
