What's new in Encore DVD 2.0
Easy slide show creation, visual flowcharts, and automated chapter menus are just some of the new features in Encore DVD 2.0.
http://www.adobe.com/products/encore/newfeatures.html


1.5.1 update 11/30/2004
The Adobe® Encore™ DVD 1.5.1 update adds support for dual-layer DVD burners and addresses a few key issues that were identified in version 1.5. It is highly recommended for all users of Adobe Encore DVD 1.5 software.

With Adobe Encore DVD 1.5.1, you can burn a project to a dual-layer DVD disc. Dual-layer discs are single-sided discs that have two recordable layers on one side of the disc, effectively doubling the amount of data it can hold. To create a dual-layer disc, you will need dual-layer media and a DVD burner that supports dual layers. Check your burner's documentation to see if it can create dual-layer discs.

Issues addressed by this update:

• Subtitles over images in a 16x9 timeline will now show on set-top DVD players set to widescreen mode.
• The DVD burn speed now displays correctly on DVD burners.
• The title button designation is no longer overridden by the "Return to Last Menu" setting.
• Projects can now be opened after deleting or renaming the ROM folder.
• In Preview mode, subtitles now show after the layer break in a dual-layer project.


v1.5
Adobe Photoshop CS integration
Edit menus in Photoshop CS and see your changes immediately in Adobe Encore. Experience full support for Photoshop CS, including nested layer sets and non-square pixels.

Enhanced Library palette
Organize individual text layers, vector shapes, background layers, and layer sets — in addition to buttons, images, and menu templates — in the enhanced Library palette. Even create your own custom library sets.

Styles palette
Easily apply styles to your DVD project menus using the new Styles palette. Use the supplied styles or create your own by simply dragging them from the Menu Editor.

Check Project
Verify your project at any time during production. Adobe Encore checks navigation, bit rates, and subtitles for problems and presents the results in a sortable list.

Custom workspaces
Configure window arrangements for specific tasks and then save them for future use. Use preset window arrangements to quickly reset windows for specific jobs such as timeline editing or menu creation.

QuickTime file support
Take advantage of a broader choice of import options with new support for QuickTime.

Background transcoding
Carry on working without interruption while source files are transcoded in the background.

Menu Editor enhancements
Take advantage of full support for Photoshop CS guides to ensure precise layout and alignment of items in the Menu Editor.

Enhanced marker support
Experience a stronger integrated workflow — Adobe Encore now creates chapter points from markers in AVI and MPEG-2 files created in Adobe Premiere® Pro 1.5 and After Effects® 6.5 software.

User operations control
Disable or enable the viewer's remote control operations in specific sections of a DVD — for example, to ensure display of mandatory content such as copyright notices.

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.



Oct 19, 2013 Version: CS4 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 2/10 Overall: 2/10



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.

Jun 20, 2013 Version: CS6 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 7/10



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.



Oct 17, 2010 Version: CS5 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 4/10



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


Oct 14, 2010 Version: 5.0.0.508 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value for money: 4/10 Overall: 6/10



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.
