I am very disappointed that Adobe has left us video creator high and dry, with the removal of encore and not finding an alternative to replace it. I have noticed that there is Director 12 which is an authoring software listed on there software list, so I am wondering whether or not that could be added to creative cloud. I have just started learning Premiere Pro, but now realised its a waste of time without an authorising app to go with it as all you can do is put your final cut onto DVD and Blu-ray as a data file instead of a video disk. So unless adobe can offer an authorising app I will go back to using Cyberlinks PowerDirector 12 Ultimate, which has most of everything Premiere pro has plus a authorising function which is lacking at present. I have not been able to find a copy of encore cs 6 as mentioned in the help pages.
When i finish my video production I would like to put it directly to disk so please adobe give us an authorising software.
Adobe did NOT decide to drop Encore, they were FORCED to stop at CS6 due to licensing
-CS6 is the final Encore, see #8 here for why http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1337952?tstart=0
