Please add Adobe Encore back into the Premiere Pro Package
Many people still use Adobe Encore to author DVD's. Please add this feature back in as editors depend on it. Encore CS6 was available with through the Creative Cloud app but is now gone. There are no good alternatives to Encore.
I find it hard to believe that Adobe no longer offers a program for authoring DVDs? It's still a pretty common multimedia delivery platform and I hope Adobe realizes that they have a huge vacancy in their multimedia software offerings. PLEASE BRING ENCORE BACK.

I was disappointed when Encore ended at CS6. The dynamic link feature was so useful when you were asked for a last minute change after building a complex menu system. Today we would need support for Blu-Ray to be included for obvious reasons, along with other UHD formats. This product was so good and head and shoulders above the rest I was somewhat surprised to see it die. Adobe, licensing issues aside, can you not fight for this excellent product?
Removing Encore is a disaster. There is nothing equal to it that I can buy. Please bring it back.
I think Anonymous below might be an Adobe statement (maybe) ? - because it is probably correct that Encore will never see the light of day again.
It is a bit short sighted of Adobe to not think about users producing videos who need a smooth integrated workflow with Creative Suite for Disc Production.
I currently use Creative Suite 'My Work' web site, but recently people I have sent download links to have had loads of trouble accessing the Adobe Web Site. What do they say ' Can you send me a disc instead ??'...... the download speed is terrible.
I posted a suggestion that Adobe could work with a Software Application partner just for the Disc Creation suite and have tight integration with Adobe CC.
I have tried other standalone Third Party packages myself and quite frankly they are filled with useless features and 50% of the time you end up with beer coasters.
Relying on web download and subscription models will ultimately fail as more and more competitors enter that market and users refuse to pay escalating fees.
It will all be perfect one day when we ALL get Optical Fibre plugged into our homes and do not have to rely on old telephone cabling (wet string) to transport high bit rate streams to carry 4K High Quality Video (eg the UK infrastructure)
In the meantime everyone, continue to knock your head against a brick wall.

Unfortunately, Adobe Encore is gone forever. Adobe will never bring it back. Look for alternate authoring programs.

Being in the event video production Biz everyone who's got CC Account should cancel it and request them to bring back a standalone Encore Ver. Upgrade for CC to use w PP CC 2019. Many Event creators who still give client final projects request it on DVD or Blu Ray Formats still for work.
We are so loss with not being able to Burn our projects w an Program w all loved that was great in doing what it did for so many for so many years!

I’ve kept an old OS X mountain lion partition in order to keep using Encore / still have workflows that require DVD and Bluray....
I don't like what Adobe have done to customers who have been with them over 20 years buying all versions of Premiere, as authoring Discs with the CS6 Encore has disappeared
This is like having the rug pulled from under them.
Please offer an Updated version of Encore working with latest Premiere versins and as someone has suggested support 4K UHD discs,
I use streaming but this has it's challenges. Why do Adobe consider DVD/BLU Ray dead?
Yes people buy less DVDs/BluRays from the likes of Amazon etc - BUT - for privately created projects (eg Weddings/Events etc ) people still want a Disc !

They should bring back Encore and revamp it with support for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disks. I still burn to blu-ray and DVD.

Please, DVD authoring is still a necessary evil
Euan Preston commented
I have clients with extremely complex interactive-DVD based projects who simply can't afford to have them completely re-authored in an alternative to Encore when they require minor updates.
Many businesses rely on this tool. Please bring it back.

Encore is still a large part of my workflow .. Now I need to look at Final Cut as a possibility?

I continue to use Encore CS6 in order to create DVD. With the new update of CC it's impossible to re-install Encore CS6 if my computer crashes now. For people like me who have no other authoring software, it's really an issue...
Very unlikely. Encore has been discontinued for years and almost definitely uses Dolby codecs that they've been having a licensing feud over recently. I don't see them spending the time and money to reissue it.
When CC first came out Adobe claimed we'd be able to get versions all the way back to CS6 forever if we needed them. I don't think many of us believed them, and now that they've taken down a number of old versions, we have proof that it was an empty promise.
