I have been using encore to make DVDs with custom menus for many years. When it works it works ok. It is difficult to create custom video buttons, and difficult to format text with drop shadow (either you use the built-in template or make your own).

The worst thing about this software is it is buggy. Sometimes it crashes, sometimes it become very sluggish. When saving a project it sometimes save useless resources, making the project unnecessarily large.

Right now I'm trying to find an alternative to encore.

Note that the updated information for "CC" (Creative Cloud) or 7.0 is not correct. There is no "Encore" in the new CC - Cloud subscribers can install Encore from CS6. There is no dynamic link, Encore will not see further development, and it will not be supported other than Windows 7 and OSX 10.6.8 and 10.7. There was no functioning trial for CS6, which installs with Premiere CS6.

Bugs,bugs,bugs. I have created around 20 DVDs with custom menus and playing options. Encore has very nice user interface, can do almost anything but has a lots of bugs. If you work on one DVD and then load project for second it will get stuck. Sometimes you can restart program but sometimes you have to restart windows. Audio can disappear without reason and "Media Cache" files which are used to sync audio can be 2/3 of original MPG file that will be transferred to DVD without re-encoding.

If you are a masochist, this is a must use.

Subtitling with Encore is not an easy task. I find working with Subtitle Workshop 4 much better but I need Encore's features as well. The problem is that although Subtitle Workshop Can output .txt subtitle file compatible to Encore, it can't be imported. Found the cure (!) guys please check my tutorial at

IF this software functioned the way Adobe claims it should, it would be heaven, but it is instead HELL! Just spend a few minutes searching Google for such phrases as "Blu-ray Error: "fatal error", Code: "6", Note: "Play item OUT time must be later than IN time" or visit Creative Cow forums and read the anguished cries of people trying to get ONE good Blu-ray authoring project out of this software, and you'll stay away! Those who claim that the people who are dissing Encore are probably Adobe employees! If you work in Standard Def and or do very short, simple Blu-ray projects and are willing to totally wipe and reinstall this software every 3 months, YOU MIGHT find it worthwhile, but others find themselves staring at bizarre, undeciperable error messages at 2AM with a deadline breathing down their necks and a company that REFUSES to acknowledge problems with their software. Avoid, stay away, you'll be sorry! I ditched this junkware and bought the plain, utilitiarian Sonic DVDit Pro HD which, while it won't win any beauty contests and is a bit clunky, it WORKS and it works predictably! Do your research and I think you'll find this is software to avoid.
