Encore a good choice for authoring Blu-ray videos with complex menus?

I currently use FCP X for editing videos of live band performances. I have been dissapointed in Toast Titanium for aurthoring the resulting Blu-ray videos because of the limited menu options.......I will often have 30 separate videos on a Blu-ray disk (one per song).
I am considering buying Premiere Pro CS6 to obtain Encore because I have been told it provides more complex menu options.
(1) Are you happy with Encore for aurthoring Blu-ray videos?
(2) Would I also need to buy After Effects?
I ask the 2nd question because I have watched an excellent "Authoring with Adobe Encore" tutorial here:
These folks offer some nice looking Menu Kits
but they use After Effects as well as Encore.
Thanks for the help.
