With Pro Tools and Logic only this is not possible. Pro Tools supports RTAS and TDM plug-ins and Logic Audio Units aka AU plug-ins. However there are external programs called wrappers which can help you.

Good starting point to investigate on this would be here:
FXpansion - Adapters

I'd definitely recommend the fxpansion wrappers. They will allow you to run VST plugins in both pro tools and logic

I'd definitely recommend that too... if I found it to work more stable than it currently does.

Just an FYI,

Make sure you diligently save your work however. You may run into compatibility issues when using certain wrapped VSTs in Pro Tools. Most VSTs (with the exception of UAD plugs prior to v6.0) where not created with the intent on later being wrapped to RTAS. Issues like session crashes, blue screen errors (if you're using windows), audio problems etc, could arise..

Good luck!
