I believe the live action was just shot on a DV camera, the DVX100 I think.

The Waking Life DVD has a whole featurette with Bob Sabiston, who headed up the rotoscoping on both films, where he does a quick demo of the software. It's sorta like a Final Cut/Illustrator/Flash hybrid custom-made program that does a lot of interpolation off of key frames, IIRC. Very easy to use, apparently; Wiley Wiggins even used it to animate one of the WL sequences!

WL went with many different animator styles for each sequence, but A Scanner Darkly is by design using a consistent animation style, I believe.
