This is what I'm gathering from reading the help files and forum here. There is no way to download Premiere CS6 (a previous version) while I am in the trial period. How am I supposed to tell if I want to continue using movie making software if I can't do something as basic as burning a DVD without committing? Or is there something I'm missing?
When in trial mode the dvd authoring software (Encore) is not available.
Never has and never will.
Encore contains modules licensed from another company, and Adobe is not going to pay a license fee for a trial that may not be purchased
