Timesaving Dynamic Link

Define and view the navigation of your DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and web DVD projects by using a visual representation of all points and links. Variable zoom speeds up your workflow.

Powerful web DVD authoring

Create powerful web DVD experiences that replicate all the functionality of their Blu-ray Disc counterparts, thanks to support for pop-up menus, multipage menus, and menu looping playback. Customizable encoding presets enable even more control.

Sleek interface for web DVD titles

Create web DVDs that have a sleek interface, offering easy-to-use playback controls plus the option to watch HD video in full-screen mode.

Integrated search for web DVD titles

Engage viewers effectively with keyword-searchable web DVDs. Encore uses metadata from menu and button names, speech analysis, and subtitles to make web DVDs searchable.

Background batch encoding

Work efficiently by offloading transcoding jobs to Adobe Media Encoder, freeing Encore for other tasks. This is particularly important with 4K and 5K workflows that normally tax your system.

Third-party encoding integration

Choose the right encoder for the job without sacrificing efficiency. Integrate third-party encoders with the Encore workflow to tap into advances in GPU-accelerated encoding.

Cross-platform projects

Share Encore projects without worrying about platform compatibility. Encore projects can be moved between Windows® and Mac platforms freely, without conversion.

Multipage menus

Create a smoother viewing experience. Browsable multipage menus on Blu-ray projects show options across multiple menu pages without interrupting background element playback.

24p support

Maintain the 24p look all the way to output with native support for 24p frame rates for Blu-ray, DVD, and web DVD titles, with correct display of 24p timecode in the timeline.

4K and 5K mastering

Take full native 4K and 5K format productions directly to high-definition Blu-ray Disc. Use Dynamic Link to open Adobe Premiere Pro 4K and 5K sequences in Encore without rendering first.

DDP master support

Create replicated discs from Encore using direct DDP master support for DVD discs. The output file can then be sent via FTP directly to the mastering facility.
