Hey, What Happened to Adobe Encore?

Looking for Adobe Encore on the Creative Cloud? It’s not easy to find. Here’s an intro to a story that I wrote for Streaming Media Producer about Encore’s demise, and how to find it on the Creative Cloud.

So, there I was, starting to run some tests on a brand new HP Z820 with 12/24 core E5-2697 v2 CPUs, one of the fastest workstations on the planet. I had installed Premiere Pro CC on the computer and started looking for Encore to run some Blu-Ray Disc encoding tests. Nowhere to be found on the computer. So I figured I would download the app from the Adobe Creative Cloud site, but Encore was missing there, as well.

A quick Google search led to the realization that Adobe had “end-of-lifed” Encore, which has significant implications to many event producers. I also learned that while Encore CS6 can work with Premiere Pro CC, there is no Dynamic Link transfer from PP CC to Encore CS6; you have to output your timelines separately and input them into Encore CS6. In this article, I’ll discuss how to install Encore if you’re a CC subscriber and don’t have Encore CS6 already installed on your computer, the terms and implications of Encore’s end-of-life status, and how to work around the lack of Dynamic Link transfers from Premiere Pro CC to Encore CS6.
