How do I get Encore with Premiere Pro CC?

Jun 19, 2013 12:29 PM

I installed CC aps and uninstalled CS6 apps. Apparently Encore was unistalled with Premiere CS6. I now have no option to install Premiere CS6. How do I get Encore?

    For anyone else reading this, DO NOT uninstall CS6 until you understand how to keep Encore CS6. There is no Encore in CC.

     

    There is no problem reinstalling it, but you a) must install Premiere CS6 (which installs Encore), then uninstall Premiere CS6, unchecking Encore as part of what is being uninstalled. You can, of course, simply leave CS6 or Premiere CS6 also installed.

     

    I do not have CC, but I believe that, once you are logged into your CC subscription, you can find the installer on line.

    To reinstall,you may have to go on line to find it.

     

    Be sure it is not just a shortcut you are missing. Look in the CS6 program directory itself.

    So, the obvious questions are WHAT HAPPENED TO ENCORE? Is something going to replace it? Why is it not in CC? Will it ever be in CC? Once we figure out how to get CS6 reinstalled, will it dynamically link Encore CS6 to CC?

    1st, the serial number version of PPro CS6 is on the 2nd page at http://www.adobe.com/products/catalog/cs6._sl_id-contentfilter_sl_cata log_sl_software_sl_creativesuite6.html?promoid=KFPMZ

     

    2nd, you are SUPPOSED to be able to install CS6 from the Cloud, per http://blogs.adobe.com/davtechtable/

     

    3rd, an Encore alternative http://www.deskshare.com/dvd-authoring-burning-software.aspx

    I don't see PPro CS6 in the Cloud, only CC apps. Why is there no link to download CS6 apps? There must be tons of fools like me who uninstalled Encore inadvertently. Now I have to spend the rest of the day finding it?

    You are not alone. Then again, I do not plan to subscribe; I just cannot justify the cost. CS6 works, or I have workarounds.

     

    But what was Adobe thinking to give up dynamic link between Premiere and the DVD/Bluray authoring app?!

    >The trend in the video and broadcast industry is moving away from physical media distribution. The future is in cloud and streaming content

     

    I guess Adobe management thinks that everyone has high speed Internet access, and a "smart" TV to connect to the Internet

     

    That may well be true... in a few years... but right now, people still buy/rent a DVD or BluRay

    Yes, there is a dropdown menu in the Premiere page of Creative Cloud with a download link to CS6.

    All of my clients ask for DVD. Some have never heard of Blu-ray. I guess I am still in the ghetto.

     

    By the way, what exactly is replacing physical media? I mean, what can I produc - and with which CC apps - that replaces a 2-hour concert DVD?

    I see 2 options

     

    1 - rent space at a Cloud storage company, with passwords (by file) and then sell your customers a link/password to individual files

     

    2 - similar to #1, but you set up your own web server and sales page... with the Cloud, you have web programming

     

    3 - buy LOTS of 4-8-16-32 Gig USB flash drives, and sell those (it is then up to your customer to have a TV with a USB port)

    This is bullsh*t! WTF is Adobe thinking!? Do they purposefully want to alienate all their professional customers? Didn't they watch the backlash that Apple got and pay any attention at all!?

     

    I absolutely NEED Encore. In fact I'm losing money today and telling a client he has to go somewhere else, because two days ago I could have made his BluRay, and now I can't.

     

    I'm about ready to tell Adobe to take a f'ing leap. This sucks.

    Encore is not gone; just not being updated beyond CS6. Just stick with CS6 suite. Then evaluate the new Premiere CC to Encore CS6 workflows. If you are used to dynamic link and it works for you, you won't like it. If not, it may be fine.

     

    It just occurrs to me that there have been several Premiere project save as options that are mentioned when we have asked about backwards compatibility of Premiere CC projects to CS6 (e.g. xml designed for cross fcp workflows). Work in PR CC if it has something  you need, then save project for CS6 and move there for final tweaking?

    Here is transcript from support.

    After I post I will try it 'cause I deleted all of CS6 and ran cleaner.

     

    Richa: Rick, what you can do is, you can go to creative.adobe.comRicha:
    and then click on download center
    Richa: Click on Premiere pro
    Richa: On this page , you will be able to choose CS6 instead of Premiere pro CC
    Richa: Check the part where the features are mentioned, on the left of that you
    will be able to choose Premiere pro CS6 Richa:
    Once you install Premiere pro, you will get the Encore CS6

    i am in the same boat, but i also remember a time before Encore. so this is what you can do and what i am doing now... Export your premiere CC project as mpeg2 dvd and open that file with Encore cs6. i know its an extra step, but you also get the rendering done in premiere CC and any metadata you created in Premiere CC is carried over with your mpeg2 DVD file, so not a real big deal but it does feel like a step or 2 backwards. Im sorry Adobe but we are a long way away from no more Discs. its like a PDF file replacing paper...not happening!!! there will always be  a need for a tangible item when it comes to distribution. weather it be a Disc - flash drive - microchip - the cloud is relative but not our end result in digital media. not to mention producers make money off selling discs. i do feel that adobe is a little disconnected from the rest of the world on this update... not on everything but this one is a major 1. i do like the app progs!!! looking forward to playing with those. i do enjoy the cloud service and dont mind paying month then having to spend a bunch at once.

    The instructions Adobe Support gave me worked for me. I now have Encore back as well as all of the library
    content. Yes, it certainly was a hassle, but at least everything has been restored.

     

    I will probably leave PP-CS6, though I am tempted to delete it.

     


    I won't repeat this on my Apple.

    I read on Adobe's site that Encore is no longer supported since DVDs are obsolete and everyone on the planet has fast access internet on every television and electronic viewing device in the home.  For people like myself, I have just become extinct.

     

    This weekend I bought the fastest available iMac 27" to replace my slightly slower iMac 27" (which has the subscription Premiere Pro CS6 and Encore).  My last render on the older iMac with Encore CS6 took about 18 hours and the newer one rendered from Premiere Pro CC in 9 hours and for me thats signficiant but creating chapters in Premiere Pro CC was a waste of time since they do not transfer as embeded chapters in the m2v file format needed for creating the DVD with Encore in the older iMac. 

     

    Imagine my disappointment (and explaining it to my wife) when I come home with a $3,000.00 Mac expecting to download CS6 only to be told I have to use the CC suite and I lost ENCORE!  Shame on Adobe. My customers do not watch TV on the internet.  They do not want a memory stick movie and most in my county can't even get fast enough internet to allow quality TV viewing.  We can and only can  have one internet provider where I live and their available to the consumer bandwith is far behind.  

     

    So now that I am officially STUMPED and BEHIND I am not sure what to do.  I keep thinking about a Windows computer running Sony Vegas at this point.  I have been an Adobe user since the first photo shop came on 3.5" disks.  Apple and Adobe should let the customer decide what they need since it is already available.  This is only a way to get everyone stuck with buying bigger bandwidth and more usage with internet and cellular providers.  Soon we will all be subscribed to everything we enjoy in life.   I guess the goal is for people like me to not be able to own software forever (even if it is out of date and you still can use it).

     

    I still have to explain to my customers what happened and to tell them what Adobe thinks about their ability to keep up with the technology.  Imagine 600 customers being told to "get up to date" or never see or have the wonderful memories I record for them.  By the way ... how do you sell 600 people access to the movie online and keep them from letting everyone else look at the video instead of purchasing one?

     

    Now I guess Adobe wants to see who will rent the CC or get smart and gobble up the last remaining DVD software sets out there and stick with it to the last drop of usable technology is squeezed out of it.  Personlly, I am very close to giving my subscription up and saying "so long" to both Apple and Adobe software.  Corel bought BibblePro which makes the fastest, most accurate and by far the best RAW photo converting software out there and guess what ... they have video software too just like Sony.   Actually my bet is now on Sony since they are strongly supporting BluRay which will keep the DVD support going for a while. 

     

    Sorry to rant on and on but when you put 100 plus hours a week into trying to fix something that is already dead it gets kind of frustrating and my customers have already paid.  Again ... many thanks Adobe.  So now I am ready for the flames ....

    ...which has the subscription Premiere Pro CS6 and Encore...

     

    ...expecting to download CS6 only to be told I have to use the CC suite and I lost ENCORE!

    Let me make sure I understand. You do not have a perpetual license for CS6, but had a subscription for CS6. I believe that you can stick with CS6. You are never required to upgrade, so as a "cloud" subscriber, you can uninstall any cloud apps you don't want, and download and install CS6. Encore will work just as it had before.

     

    Edit: But you do have to continue your subscription. This is the scenario that many critics of the subscription model are concerned about: if you stop your subscription, you only have access to the last perpetual license you owned. For you, is that CS5.5 or CS5 or CS4...?

    My originally license is for Premiere Pro 5.5.  This was never about trying to upgrade the CS6 but put the CS6 on the newer iMac and I was misdirected in my mind by Adobe.  I put the CS6 subscription on the first iMac in June of 2012.  Then when the first iMac was bogging down on some heavy video projects I decided to get a new iMac as in last week.  Its a late 2012 27" with the 2gb video card, 8gb RAM (of couse I will up that), 3.4 quad i7 and that hybrid flash/spinning hard drive.  Start to working desktop in 0-10". 

     

    So since I got the new iMac I went online to Adobe to reload my older CS6 subscription it directed me only to the CS6 CC downloads.  It is very, very difficult to find what you want on the Adobe website now.  So many things are relinked back to what you don't want.  When you try to buy the CS6 it seems to only to to the educational versions and there is no Premiere Pro CS6 standalone there. 

     

    Late last night ... after a 5-6 hour download from a link I found on the internet, I was able to finally get a trial download of the older CS6 Master Suite and fortunately for me the current monthly subcription worked.  I just blasted a 2:20:00 HD to SD video from Premiere Pro CC in one hour.  Then, thanks to this link abot using Premiere Pro CC & Endore CS6 I was able to better understand the newer workflow:

     

    http://tv.adobe.com/watch/davtechtable/using-premiere-pro-cc-encore-cs 6-for-bluray-dvd-and-interactive-video-for-ipadatv-and-mobile-hd/ 

     

    I will probably ditch the CC version as my internet is too weak or slow for uploading video. 

     

    Yes, I have been very disgruntled at Adobe for the difficulty with the changes.  I am also disgruntled with Apple since the external Mac DVD burner I just bought (for the latest burning bios on newer DVDs) will not work on my 2009 iMac (with older bios or firmware for burning DVDs).

     

    But on the good side, I made a project 2:20:00 m2v.iso of my video from  Premiere Pro CC in under 5 minutes with Encore and then decided to let it do it again but this time to a DL DVD and the render and burn time was less than 30 minutes.  WOW ... now to keep Adobe from doing some type of update and taking this away.  Maybe I should buy a hard copy and give up the subscription.

    Congrats on getting things working.

     

    And I do think you can keep doing it....

     

    BUT, I do not think you have a PR CS6 subscription. You have a PR cloud subscription. Within that subscription, you can run PR CC or PR CS6 and with either, Encore CS6. I have not seen that discussion, but that would be true if you subscribed to the "whole" cloud, and I don't see why it would not be true here. If Adobe increases the price of the subscription, your subscription will increase, whether you use CS6 or CC. If you discontinue the subscription, you can load CS5.5 under your original perpetual license.

     

     

    I will probably ditch the CC version as my internet is too weak or slow for uploading video.

    The "cloud" does not require uploading any video. It is just a name for "subscription."

    Thanks Stan.  Just sent my first project over to Encore CS6 via Premier Pro CS6 on my new iMac 27".  Sadly my ShuttlePro2 did not work on the PR CS6 and I guess it is because when I originally setup the computer I had PR CC on it during the ShuttlePro2 driver install.  I looked for the file mentioned in Contour Designs website but I could not find the preference file in my library.  So I had to kick it old school and use the keyboard during the 2:37:00 final edit.  So Encore is cooking along and I will see what comes out tomorrow morning.  One Adobe TV lesson mentioned making the ISO image on large jobs in case the disc burn has any errors.  Sounds like good advice when you wait 12-24 hours for some of the renders.    

     

    I do have a CC subscription.  Fortunately I can stil run the CS6 downloads with the subscription rate.  Who knows for how long?  Bye the way, does Adobe keep older PR's available for download if you misplaced your originals in a office move?  I still haven't found them and some older InDesign box sets. 

     

    I thought the Adobe cloud also held work for clients to view if need be?  Maybe I am wrong. Again not enough bandwidth to worry about that. I just use DropBox when needed.

    Adobe has said that older versions will be available to CC forever. I don't know if that included ones before CS6.

     

    I do believe you can get downloads for earlier versions for which you have a license. Someone put up a link recently.

     

    Adobe has had, and abandoned, numerous client review options. they may have something now. (What is Behance?) My point was just that you don't need to upload  your files to work on the "cloud," it works locally. You just have to validate on line periodically.

    The thread that we are in is more confusing than some for the "how to" get Encore CS6 whether you are CS6 or CC.

     

    See this link, which includes how to install Encore CS6, how to get the library, and a tutorial on workflow with Premiere CC.

    http://helpx.adobe.com/encore/kb/encore-cs6-installed-cc.html

    I had the same problem - sorry if this post is answering an old question - it took me ages to find the answer and I nearly rang a US customer service centre from the UK!

    Using Application Manager (or Creative Cloud as its now called), go to Apps and highlight Premiere Pro CC - click "More Info" below the logo; on the webpage you're directed to, under the title "In This Version", there's a drop-down menu, which gives you the option to install Premiere Pro CS6 Family (including Encoder & Encore)! Select this and the download button, top right, says Download Premiere Pro CS6.  This version also then opens in Application Manager. Hope this works for you. I can't help thinking though, that this option may be phased out, but I'll want to know there's a sure-fire alternative to Encore for my subscription, before I change versions.

    This no longer works if you use adobe creative cloud memberships.

     

    I think I am going to cancel and go back to avid.

     

    This experice sucked.

     

    the only thing that came out of it was a hasle and a headache.

     


    Thank you adobe for ruining the local media producers once again.

     

    I knew when I was told to avoid the switch I should have.

     

     

    I want to swear at them right now..but I am still paying for this crap for a year.

     

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what you are referring to. You can install Encore CS6 with a cloud subscription.

     

    Check the cancellation policy; I do not know, but previously there was a 30 day money back option. Is there not a 30 days cancellation option?

    Adobe, you have to fix this NOW.  Either add Encore to Premiere CC or make CS6 downloadable via the cloud.  Otherwise I have to give up my subscription and go somewhere else.  You are really screwing me right now.  I logged in to create 20 blu-ray discs for a client and just now found out there is no Encore with CC.  If I had known that I would have never upgraded to CC and uninstalled CS6.  Stupid move that needs to get fixed in the next 24 hours.

     

    UPDATE: After an hour of searching I was able to figure out how to reinstall CS6 through the creative cloud.  I'm uninstalling Premiere CC.  Adobe, I hope you rethink the Encore situation.  All streaming online may be the future in 10 years or so but Blu-Ray and DVD's are still a big part of the professional production game and you alienating all of us like this will force most of us to go elsewhere.  I was an Apple FCP7 user who switched to Adobe because of Apple's monumental screwup with FCP X.  Now you're making some of the same mistakes with CC.  I hope you quickley realize the mistakes you're making and work to correct them FAST.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    SVP Media

    Certainly understand your frustration, and glad you sorted out how to install Encore CS6 under a cloud subscription.

     

    In case it was not clear, you do not not need to uninstall Premiere CC to use Encore CS6.
