Investigate XaraX - it has very good transparency and soft edge effects. PC Pro June 2001 edition has a trial version on it's copver disc. I tried it and liked it so I bought the full version. Just haven't had any time to really use it so far - too many urgent edits for clients!

Commotion is great. Combustion is great. After Effects 5 is bad. Photoshop is workable, to a point, using filmstrip files from premiere.

Strata Paint is, if you can get hold of it, a classic for this kind of stuff.
