    Not really, no. Premiere is a video editing rather than a composoting package.

    Marc's right - as usual.

    Use Premiere to piece all your individual clips together into a cohesive movie.

    Actually creating your special effects is the real trick though. And that's where the money comes in. There is no single 'silver bullet' piece of software for special effects. Depending on what specific effect you want the chances are there is a seperate piece of s/w that is considered 'best' for it. This might be a seperate application or maybe even a plugin.

    So then, what effects are you primarily interested in? I might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Marc is right but you can use photoshop + Premiere pro for special effects. I do not know how though.

    Slowly and with an awful lot of hard work.

    It amounts to 'painting' each frame individually.

    for effects you need after effects... once you get your head around it you will find that its one of the best progs you have! its mind blowing how much AE can do and is well worth downloading a trial from the adobe site.... i should be getting commision!!!!
