Or at least give me a serial number for the software that I AM PAYING FOR! Encore CS6.

No replacement, just sorry? But you can buy Elements, sorry, not included in Creative Cloud?

Hmmm, I need to find other software to make DVDs, kiss the photoshop dynamic link goodbye, and still pay $636 per year? If I need to buy software to make DVDs and blurays and don't have photoshop menu linking I will now be forced to learn other ways to make my discs and menus, and Resolve is very easy to use for basic video work. Looks like once I get a new disc authoring software working to my liking I could save $636 per year! Adobe, are you listening? Please don't force many legacy users to leave you.

Adobe licensed parts of Encore from another company... that license was cancelled when the other company was sold, so CS6 was the end for Encore

 

If you had purchased Premiere Pro CS6 your Encore would still work... but Encore as part of a Cloud subscription is no more

There is no replacement for legacy CS6 Encore, sorry.  

 

There are plenty of apps for making DVD/BluRay if you have the equipment for it.  But most people have little or no need for disks these days which have been replaced by digital downloads and streaming.  In fact, most new computers don't have an optical reader anymore.

I need to find other software to make DVDs

 

Out of interest, who is using the DVDs that you're creating? Given the ubiquity of downloads, streaming and Cloud file sharing, I wonder who still uses DVDs.

 

I'm genuinely curious.

Hi John,

 

I know several people who will get DVDs. Most of it doesn't have access to the internet and so they can't use streaming, downloads and so on. Some of these are also living in locations with slow internet connection. 

 

In my opinion, there will be a need for DVDs for a long time to come. However, there will be less and less.

LATEST

My latest computer does not even have a DVD reader, and the last time I did a DVD is aeons ago. But yes, if you want to have a DVD authoring software, you should hurry because they will soon be out of business. My latest films that need to be played on TV sets, I provided USB sticks. That's working fine.

 

Personally, for feature films, I still prefer DVDs to all other media.
