To do something like the google's video you posted you will definitely need something like After Effects or other more powerful video editor and some patience to get things done.

Nice. After Effects looks like what I want to use if I want to create the animated portion. Is it the industry standard or are there any similar tools? –  cwd Jun 24 '11 at 15:36
    
I am pretty sure it is the industry standard, specially being a part of Adobe CS5 studio pack –  Felipe Sabino Jun 24 '11 at 18:24
