Other video effects included in the Production Bundle package are Glow, Scatter, Alpha Levels and Time Displacement.
Overall, the effects included with the Production Bundle blow the standard edition away. The effects in the Production Bundle alone justify the $800 difference in price from the standard edition.
Nevertheless, the Production Bundle does include six exclusive effects for working with audio. These include Flange & Chorus, High-Low Pass, Modulator, Parametric EQ, Reverb and Tone. These are all pretty self-explanatory. The only one that might throw you is tone, which renders one of any number of tone effects, such as a siren, telephone or other device that uses a simple, repeating sound. The effects have to be set manually, with no presets provided for any particular sounds.
There are some RAM preview problems with audio in After Effects 5, which I'll detail later.
