Adobe Encore CS6

I have a working copy of the Adobe Master Suite CS6. Today I find myself in need of a DVD authoring application so I grabbed the Adobe Installer and let it do its thing.

The app installed but won't accept the Master Suite serial number. Adobe is zero help. They've declared Encore past its "end of life".

Is there any hope of getting Encore past the "Enter your serial number" screen?

OR

if not please suggest a suitable substitute.

Some flavour of Adobe Premiere is no solution for you?
I recall that CS6 was hard to hack. Adobe would only let you use it after connecting to their registration server. No idea whether that server is still running.
CS5.5 was easier going with a custom "hosts" file, but I don´t think Encore was part of CS 5.5.

Premiere is great for generating various movie file formats. But it lacks any support for traditional DVD stuff like menus, chapters, etc.

There was a CS6 hack of replacing a particular framework file in each app package. I remember that working well for all but the Bridge app. I’m not sure how you would get that though without going through any questionable torrent sites. Finding something that old that is still seeded would likely not be too easy either.

As said above, CS5.5 Master collection has Adobe Premiere 5.5 included, maybe worth a try.
Unfortunately I´m missing the English installer, only Kraut languages here. Smile

For CS6 there indeed were some patches.
Adobe Master Collection CS6 Offline Keygen.app would look promising, but appears to be broken.
Got in in 2013, I think, but never tried.
Maybe someone is willing and able to repair the keygen.app.

I´ll upload what I got later.

Agreed. In fact it is entirely missing from your collection. There is only a file titled x-force.nfo which "Get Info" lists as a unix executable file. Opening it produces a message asking me to choose an application to open the file.

The zip file should expand to two folders.
Whether anything will be still usable is the million dollar question.

Ahh. There it is. Thanks 24bit. The file titled "Adobe Master Collection CS6 Offline Keygen.app" launches but produces an error stating that the app is damaged or incomplete.

On my 10.8.5 system ALL of the files in the other folder appear normal. None shows a "Can't Use" circle over the top of the icon.

Wow... CS6 will be 10 years old in 1.5 years. And it's still good enough for most of what professionals do.

Yep.
Also worth noting is that it's the last version to run on Snow Leopard!

Apple's DVD Studio Pro was part of Final Cut Studio 2 and Final Cut Studio (2009).

Both work on Snow Leopard. According to Apple's support pages, FCS 2009 should work in Mac OS X Lion with all the updates applied from apple.com.

Past Lion, I expect there will be some hurdles.

As someone who owns FCS 2009, I can state that this is the case. Everything works on Lion, Motion breaks on Mountain Lion, a few more things break on El Cap, and everything breaks after that.
