hi. im looking for a plugin (or 2 or 3)

I would need it to be able to:
-have beat detection
-input music
-input pictures
-have it render an amazing slideshow
-animoto has a simple one, but i am looking for the best on the planet
-all forms of transitions and backgrounds rotating and transitioning to the beat of the music, some of the music may not have beats, some may be nature sounds (rain forest, water, etc.)
-i would like this to have hundreds of expressions or scripts that will insure that output videos will look alike.

can anyone please help?

thank you

AE can do all that, Sound Keys would help you with keyframing the beat/music, and various native plugins and animation with transitions... the thing is that AE is a very complex piece of software that can do a lot of things, but very few are drop and render type. You will have to get into the software and create the slideshow yourself and it will be as good as you are in mastering AE.
What you may want to look into is project templates.
Here's a few good resources:

Thank You Ted!

Where do you suggest I find the best training out there?

Lynda.com ?

Total Training?

I don't want to learn everything at this point, I just want to use it for this one specific application.

I would start on the adobe site. The Cow has a good series as well for basics. Lynda.com is a good resource as well.
You will have to take some time and dig in- even if you want to do just one thing. Because AE is so complex, you will need to go through a series of tutorials to understand the basic things about it.
