    After gaining competency in Premiere 6.5 I'm looking to get into DVD
    authoring immediately since I just hired a friend who is a Photoshop
    wizard to help me author DVDs from my edited movies. So if I
    understand correctly I need to upgrade to Premiere Pro in order to use
    the files seamlessly in Encore, right?

    So where's the best place to get this upgrade online?

    I see one bundle at http://www.cwol.com/firewire/pyro-professional.htm
    for $469 for the Premiere Pro + Adobe Encore + Audition + Firewire
    card (or DVD media) bundle

    And then there is this store at IBackUps.net which seems to offer
    downloads all of the individual programs for about $69 or so. Anyone
    know if this is legit and does one get a valid registration key with
    this purchase?

  5. Or, if you're a student (even just take a class in a community college
    like I did) you can buy the same plus after effects for $450. Also can
    upgrade to pro versions of Premier and AE and get PhotoShop CS for $800.
    At academicsuperstore.com. Stand-alone Premier Pro 7 is $219.

  6. Yipes! Stay away! Stay faaaar away. Does not give you a license or
    registration key, just a backup of the media. I almost fell into their
    trap, actually linked to their page a day or two ago from Amazon. Glad I
    read the fine print and didn't fall for the "Order within 10 minutes of
    your first visit to our web site" trap. Of course that should be a
    warning, and it was.

    Me too!. I actually had my credit card out and ready to order.

    Thanks to CSats post here, I didn't. The way their terms of service
    was written almost made it sound like in addition to the product sales
    they also had a separate backup service that required you to already
    be a licensed user.

    I tried contacting them through their web site email, but haven't
    received any response yet. I was able to get in touch with someone
    through their online chat.

    I asked the question:

    "According to item 9 in your Terms of Service it appears that I should
    not buy products from you unless I already own a legal license for the
    product. True?"

    The answer I received back was:

    "True."
