I recently saw this video about stereo field. The author is using Stereo Analyzer feature of the Inspector XL software to visualize the resulting stereo effect, this is what it looks like:

Unfortunately, this software has been discontinued, and was never available in 32 bit version, which makes it impossible for me to use it. Are there any other tools, preferably in a form of a VST plugin, that can visualize stereo field?

What you are looking for is often called a Goniometer or Correlation meter. There are plenty of VST plugins that will display a goniometer view for stereo correlation analysis. Just use your favorite search engine, now that you know the proper terms.

This looks like what you are looking for. I don't have any experience with it myself, however.
