Making DVDs

What is the best way to make a DVD with specific chapter breaks using Adobe Premiere Pro? All the tutorials I've seen require Encore, which doesn't show up amongst the apps of Adobe Creative Cloud.

I feel your pain. I went through this when I cut a feature on Adobe Premiere Pro CC. I wanted to burn copies to submit to festivals and discovered for some idiotic reason Adobe didn't keep Encore as part of CC. Luckily it's pretty easy to download and install Encore from Adobe's website. It still exists from its last incarnation in CS6. Though it's no longer supported with updates it works perfectly fine for DVD and BluRay authoring.
Here's Adobe's page to walk you through it.

Hehh guys. Adobe is sure, that DVD's BR's and CD's should be in history of junk and today is everybody using USB's, external HDDs and Cloud... :D (words from Adobe mouth)

Here's how to get Encore:

How to install Adobe Encore CS6

1. Launch CC desktop app

2. Sign in and click on apps tab

3. Once you are in apps tab then you can scroll down, you will get the option FIND NEW APPS beside which you can see Filters and versions, once you click on the drop down beside Filters and versions then from the drop down you can select Previous version.

Once you select Previous version then you will get the apps with Install option, if you click on Install option then it will ask you if you want to download CC or CS6, you can select the version then you can download.

If you are unable to locate CS6 then you can download the software using the link.

Once you downloads Premiere pro CS6 then install and launch, click on License this software and sign in.

The problem is that I want to make DVDs using projects from the latest version of Premiere Pro, so I don't think I can even use Encore. I tried to download the older version, but I couldn't figure out how to download Encore after that.

And I don't care if Adobe thinks DVDs are history. Stop trying to tell us what is in and what isn't "in"! I hate it when companies do that! DVDs are not through.

Encore works fine with CC. I have Encore installed on both a PC and a Mac. What Encore doesn't do is open from CC in a dynamic form. You have to render your BluRay or DVD files in Premiere Pro CC, then open and import them into Encore. CC creates three files, Video, Audio and Metadata. Metadata includes things like chapter markers. All the powerful authoring tools of Encore are available once you add your files to the timeline. If you're still having trouble downloading and installing, you should contact Technical support and they can walk you through the steps. Encore is still as useful and powerful as it ever was. It really is unfortunate Adobe moved away from it after CS6. There are still lots of reasons to burn DVDs and BluRays. Luckily it's still an option, just via an unnecessarily convoluted path.
Good luck and don't give up. It does and will work.

Just finished a one hour DVD project with Encore CS6 and Premiere CC 2017. Color grading will shift during encoding and authoring process. Encore still works well if you have to deliver DVDs and Blu-Rays.
