Yes, AE has a similiar plugin Architectur then Premiere. There also
are a much plugins available. I suggest you try to learn AE first,
it is a huge package by default. And a lot can be done. Only go
down the plugin route after this, because then you know what
you want exactly and will not pay too much for it. Cause both
AE and most of its plugins can cost much money.

Thanks Rob, I think I'll sink my teeth into learning AE, although I havenít got the latest edition, and only a demo, I guess most of the controls are in the same place as 5.5. Edition, but as mentioned before it is made a little bit easier.

Thanks for all the help.

All the best,

Ed Smith

There is a plugin for Premiere called Panopticum Rich Typing which will allow you to do the Matrix Effect.

Also I've had some success using a vector animation program like Flash to create AVI files which I then overlayed on my video stream to create some pretty nice special effects.

thanks for that daremo1971, that was the sort of thing I was after. I've downloaded a couple of demos to try it out.

For anyone who can't find the link here it is:

I think it would become more cost effective if I was to buy the full version of AfterEffects.

All the best,
