Adobe's professional level audio editor benefits nicely from the new design and integration features of these Adobe Production Studio releases. Audition 2.0 shares Production Studio's elastic, unified workspace, with custom workspaces, and useful touches like the tilda (~) key for quickly maximising a highlighted panel to full screen.
Adobe's DVD creator may be the most straightforward of all the programs in the Adobe Production Studio bundle, but it's no slouch when it comes to creating good-looking work. Encore has all the flexibility offered by the new stretchy interface with its easily adjustable frames, dockable palettes and support for custom workspaces (see Adobe Production Studio overview).

Firstly, not all video uploaders appear to have access yet to DRM and those users who have tried to buy DRM videos outside of the US have probably encountered the message:
The Irish film Pavee Lackeen is the first feature from renowned photographer Perry Ogden and is an intimate portrait of a resilient and spirited young traveller girl and her family's day-to-day struggle with poverty, faceless bureaucracy, and prejudice in contemporary Ireland.
