Unfortunately I bought Premiere Elements 2020 and made a very bad experience: No chance to produce Blu-ray discs anymore!!! That is a real worst case scenario for me and the software is not usable for me. That is extremely annoying. Fortunately I bought a full version and not an update, so I still have my Elements 14 with which I can produce Blu-ray discs without problems. However,
Adobe is dead for me, I'll never buy a software from them again and I don't use any other Adobe programs anymore. Bye bye Adobe, keep your scrap yourself!

If you bought directly from Adobe via download you have a time window to get a full refund.
From my point of view I see Blu-Ray and DVD going down the same path as VHS, Beta, 8-Track and cassette players. How long do you think it will last?
thank you for your message. Unfortunately I bought it via Amazon a DVD an not as download. The Amazon price for both Premiere and Photoshop Elements was 30 % lower than the Adobe price. Nevertheless I'll keep it and use the Photoshop softare on two computers. In general I realized over the years that the Elements software was getting worse and worse from version to version in my opinion, but it is still the best under all products I used over the years. I'm sure you're right concerning the future of Blu-ray, but this is the development of everthing in the world. The reason why I use Blu-ray is that my videos mostly have a data volume of more than 15-20 GB, so I need at least an ISO file, which I can burn on a Blu-ray or play the file directly on a PC with the accordding software.
whsprague, each year I produce a bluray of all my families videos. It is edited to have all the best clips of the year. Having chapters is very helpful, but also watching it straight through is also desireable sometimes. The quality of the bluray is superior to any of the default export presets in Premiere.
What do you suggest for a high quality blu-ray like experience without the blueray? A folder full of video clips exported with a custom preset? One huge video file (without chapters?). I honestly would love the answer because I enjoy upgrading to newer versions of Premiere. I recently got a GoPro and I know 2020 would handle the video files better than Premeire Elements 14 (which I have to preconvert some of them with Handbrake). My family just loves the Bluray experience.
I still make disks even put old D8 footage on bluray.
Dont make DVD anymore.
Unfortunately, Premiere Elements 14 is the last version to support burning bluerays - and the reason I still use it!
