so then how would I go by downloading just encore by itself. I already have premiere pro CC installed and my project is in that format.
Will I need to convert the format to an older format to be able to use it in encore cs6?
No Encore is CS6. So you download Premiere CS6 which comes with Encore.
I have heared you can now download Encore by itself but that I am unsure about that.
The next step is to export from Premiere to mpeg2-dvd, import the two files in Encore, make menu and burn.
But read the link: its all there.
CS5-thru-CC PPro/Encore tutorial list http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1448923 may help
The bottom section of the link above has several Adobe links, and other information, on downloading Premiere Pro CS6 and the bundled Encore CS6, and the TWO ADDED downloads for the Encore library content, to author a DVD or BluRay... and the tutorial list includes learning how to use Encore... pay particular attention to the picture in reply 3 at this link - https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1516173 (picture first posted by Ann Bens and reposted by Stan Jones)
