Recently security reports came out noting that Quicktime Player on Windows machine is a major security issue. This creates a quandry for those editing professional video using the Apple ProRes codec since installing Quicktime is required to use this codec. Apparently Adobe is now working to natively support ProRes in the application without the need for Quicktime to be installed. Cool move.
Yes, Adobe Encore is still available for those times when you have to author DVDs for clients. Don’t laugh, we recently did a run of 300 for a client and are about to do another run for another client. So yes, DVDs are still alive and well in our digital streaming age.
Adobe has never separated the Encore installer from Premiere Pro CS6 so you have to download that first.
In Creative Cloud app, under “Find Additional Apps,” click on Previous Version Drop down (next to Video) and then you’ll see in blue at the bottom of that window “View Previous Versions.” Click that ‘View Previous Versions.’
It looks like not much happens, but now you have access all the way back to CS6. Click the dropdown next to Premiere Pro. You’ll see you now have options to download the earlier versions. Download CS6 which will bring Encore with it. After it’s downloaded, you can actually Uninstall Premiere Pro CS6. That will disappear but Encore CS6 will remain.
