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.
While we understand the desire, Adobe has no plans to add DVD authoring back into our product line.
Waldorf & Statler commented
We think it is good to have a tool for DVD and Blue-Ray!
A lot of people have dipped into this conversation but as Kevin Monahan pointed out somewhere in the depths of this earlier thread - "Don't count on it guys".
It would seem now the likelyhood of Adobe doing something like this is very remote. Very !.
On the other hand it would have been nice for Adobe to not ***** up existing CS6 customers producting BluRay discs using Encore on CS6 and withdraw the Update code packages, even though we accepted it was not under support anymore.
For 4K going forward - I'd recommend to look for an alternative authoring package for 4K production, although 4K UHD discs are quite expensive, especially if they end up as a beer coaster ... and you need a 4KUHD BluRay burner.
I'll probably start experimenting with a hosted streamed route or just use a large HDD /Large USB Memory stick.
Andrew Patterson commented
I had read they stopped support for Encore because of licensing issues. I say Adobe should make something similar to Encore. I want to be able to create UHD Blu-ray disks.
Jonah Walker commented
Yes would love for Encore to be updated and allow for Blu-ray creations as well.
Roberto Pacheco commented
Not having an updated version of Encore is causing constant problems. Can Adobe please update Encore and include it in the Premiere Pro package
Michael Raspuzzi commented
I miss having the Encore functionality of linking up a Premiere Pro project without have to export media and then import into Encore CS6. If Encore has been deprecated, is it possible to develop a tool with better functionality that integrates with CC? As someone who shoots video for private events (e.g. weddings), it is not viable to supply an online copy of the video. The bride and groom and family members would like a DVD (or BluRay) and not have their wedding on the Internet.
Comment for Windows 10 installs
: If you need to install Encore 6 again and have a retail Licence Key you can download the executable and the full Encore Library content.
I had same issue and have a Licence but needed the downloads for CS6
These links download Software & Content for Premiere CS6 and Encore CS6.
The links came from Adobe customer care a long time back. I think they still work.
Execute the .exe (as Administrator) to unzip the compressed file and it will unzip to folders and the setup.exe file
As you re-install it it will ask for your Licence Key
The *.7z files are compressed files and the .exe file will unzip it for you.
Please download the application from the link:-
As regards Encore CS6, I..... along with many have complained about this but I think this has gone forever as discs are seen as 'old technology' now by Adobe and Licencing the Dolby encoder was apparently reported by some people as a big issue ?.
Not sure this will help but at least if you need the software and have a key you can go ahead.
One issue you will encounter however is that the software for Encore CS6 does not contain the last update Version 6.0.2.
Always run Encore in Windows 7 Compatibility mode now if using Win 10. All working still for me.
Remember that installing and getting CS6 running is your own best efforts only.
Adobe Support will not support you anymore.
Anthony Pieter Mulder commented
Adobe, why did you delete Encore CS 6 from the cloud? I can't find it anymore. This is rediculous, we still use it! I see that a lot more people don't understand this. Why not just leave it online for those who still use it?

Our company still delivers all of our training to our 3,500+ employees on DVD. Do I wish we had a proper system for streaming content to employees? Absolutely! But I, just like many others, am required to work within the limitations of company infrastructure that I have no control over. Ever since Encore disappeared months ago its been a scramble to find any half decent replacement.
I don't want or need any support for it, just release the last stable version of it as a completely stand alone program without any CC or other Adobe program integration. Maybe some links won't work, certain buttons won't work anymore, that's all fine. As long as I can drop files in, build menus, and export a playable DVD, I'll be stoked.
I've been using Encore since it launched. I don't know when the last time was that I personally did anything on DVD outside of work, it's a dead medium, but it's all I have to work with at work. Help?
Nicholas J Leach commented
Getting rid of encore has had a significant negative impact on my life. It was something I could rely on. Unlike pinnacle that just crashed. My client wants disks and I can't find a reliable method to burn them. Just make it available again. Let us use it at our own risk. We would still have it on our computers if windows 10 didn't keep forcing us to update, then reload windows and then reload are apps again.
Kevin Luck commented
In parts of the world other than the USA, DVDs are still required for professional jobs on a regular basis. Encore is still needed.
Let's just keep this going until it gets thousands of votes and is un-ignorable. :) Though probably the CS6 codebase is so ancient that to make a current Encore they'll have to code it from scratch - an idea that even I understand is DOA.
I do distribution of indie films and BluRays (and sometimes DVDs) are still important and prevalent. I use tsMuxerGUI which won't do menus, but will "eat" BluRay assets from Media Encoder, is incredibly fast, and tbh less buggy than Encore. :)
From my extensive research, if you need full BD & DVD authoring functionality, I recommend TMPGEnc Authoring Works on a Win virtual machine, or a separate PC if your work volume justifies it. Interface is kludgy but it's the most full featured, and tech support exists.
Jim Ford commented
More than 50% of our annual work (training media) is destined for DVD distribution. It would certainly be a benefit to keep the entire output path within the Adobe family of products.
Kevin Monahan commented
I would not count on this one, gang. Sorry....
Rafael Cardenas commented
I m very disappointed that adobe discontinued Encore It was and awesome program that offered a lot. Now Is so complicated to to find a program that replace it on the Mac Platform. I would like to see adobe incorporate the DVD and Blu-Ray functions on Encoder or Plug-In for Premier Pro.
We Play monthly Subscriptions and we Still need Encore and we still would need it for a long time
Darren Manden commented
Yup, I think a lot of people feel very similarly. Premiere Pro, and Adobe support as a whole, tends to resemble a dumpster fire way too often, and the idea of just cutting ties with Creative Cloud and Adobe is super-tempting, but then there's After Effects, Illustrator, PS, Lightroom Classic, etc, and it becomes a bit more complicated.
Rock, meet hard place.
Gareth Davies commented
The removal of Encore has been a huge setback. The menu creation functionality was especially good and I have not found an alternative that comes close. I'm seriously tempted to drop my P Pro subscription and just use Resolve . . . .
If you look across the many ideas on Premiere Pro Forum it is clear Adobe are only focusing now on ideas that are targetted towards a higher end Professional Market segment. Those are the ideas that get a response.
Adobe clearly do not see themselves addressing a market segment of users who occasionally publish work on Blu Ray discs as well as ' web on line' anymore.
Its only my take on this - but no comments from Adobe Product Management have ever been made back on this topic - giving a justification on their actions.
The issue here is - we are all fee paying customers and some of us are being ignored. Correct?
Can we have see some comments from Adobe please ?, and please don't tell us to spend more money buying Third Party Solutions OK ?.
Ian Zainea commented
Please release Encore CS6 or an updated version. It is important and needed.
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.
