If you're thinking about buying Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 or after affect standard 6.5 or Adobe edition 1.5 or Adobe encore DVD 1.5. Separately then you are going to be very happy that you read this. If you bought a little products alone separately. It would cost you more than $2000, way more even. This package is a steal at less than a grand. You can do so much with this package, it is amazing. After affects totally rocks for making animated DVD menus. It integrates great with encore, DVD.
Now the one question you need to ask is before you buy this, should you upgrade to the professional package. What's that get you, first off the get to Adobe Photoshop CS and after affect professional, which has a few more plug-ins and after affect standard. Photoshop alone would make it worth the purchase. I think it's $400 more.
