How to use Encore CS6 with Premiere Pro CC
The PPro tutorial list in message #3 http://forums.adobe.com/message/2276578 has a section on Encore
First of all, the chances that you found a codec that you could use inside the AVI wrapper that is actually lossless is slim. Possible, but unlikely.
Second, your job would probably be easier if you set up a DV AVI sequence, using either NTSC or PAL (depending on where you live).
Once you have that sequence set up, you can drop your footage into it, and adjust the frame size of each clip to match it. Just use the Motion effect's Scale parameter. If some are 4:3 and some are 16:9 (widescreen) then you have to decide if you want the 4:3 to have black bars on the side or if you want the widescreen to be chopped off.
Then export as DV AVI and just about any DVD authoring program will be able to create your DVD from that file.
I am currently using the free trial version of premier cc. I cannot find where to asccess encore. From what I understand, encore hsould have just came with premier, does it not come with the trial version?
It does not, only after purchase.
Go back and reread what I posted in reply #1 and click the links this time
Encore does NOT come with PProCC... you must do a separate install of PProCS6, which has EncoreCS6 bundled
This is only AFTER you have a paid subscription to the Cloud... Encore does NOT work until you pay
