Adobe ... gotta love 'em when you don't hate 'em, right?
Yea ... this new CC version of the cine/video stuff is mostly SWEET ... but their stupid (being polite, actually ... ) decision to drop Encore as 'discs are going away' (sometime in the mid-distant future but what the hay ... ) is a royal pita.
Enough, however, that Adobe even has a page to tell you how to go download an EARLIER version of Premiere (I think, can't remember ... ) and that includes Encore ... then install that Encore and keep it on your machine. Someone around here will correct me, or you can search the forum for "encore download".
Supposedly, they're not going to update it, but they will keep it 'functional' for a while.
Hi R. Neil Haugen,
See this link, which includes how to install Encore CS6, how to get the library, and a tutorial on workflow with Premiere CC.
Also, see the Encore CC/CS6 FAQ:

The brave new world as dictated to by corporates is web delivery of everything including entertainment.
This way allows maximum control of the masses and maximum profit generation due to supposed efficiencies of delivery.
Delivery quality level of entertainment is of no concern despite the hype of 4k etc...
It is planet screwing but that is of no concern to corporates.
Collusion with Telecos is obvious.
I appreciate your opinion but Im still looking for an answer to my question.
When I look around, 99.9% of the people have DVD or BD players, with the majority of them still on DVD. Next year the 4K successor of BD will be announced, but it will take several years for that format to become mainstream, as well as UHD TV's.
Now look at how many have a TV that is capable of playing from jumpsticks. It is far less than 30% and if you look at the penetration of TV's with USB3 conections, it is even less than 3%.
Adobe may want the death of DVD, BD and its successor, but that does not make it so. People want to play movies and almost everybody has a DVD or BD player. It will be years before Adobe's wish will come true, if ever.
The best codec for jumpsticks, if they play on a TV at all, depends on the brand and model of the TV but probably H.264 has the best chance of success. Note however that by the time people have jumpstick capable TV's, the H.265 codec may be the better choice.
