I owned an Avid in the late 90s and I'm getting close to making the switch from FCP back to Avid, but I need a DVD/Blu ray solution and suddenly realized that I can't find Adobe Encore for sale as a standalone product - does it only come as a part of the Premiere or Adobe Production Premium packages?

It's not available separately. The cheapest you can get it is $799 for the Premiere Pro package, unless you rent it of course.

My software:
Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metadata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
More tools...

You can always use FCP 7's share tool until it breaks then make the jump. Too bad there isn't an FCP to AE cross grade.

If you're a FCP User you can crossgrade to Premiere Pro for just $400 by 9/30 and get Encore (plus Adobe Media Encoder, Bridge etc.)

Or go for Production Premium at $800. It comes with Photoshop and After Effects.

Adobe Production Premium comes with MUCH MORE that just Photoshop & After Effects folks. The cross grade is the best deal out there (Avid does not come close):

Premiere Pro CS5.5
After Effects CS5.5 (includes Synthetic Aperture Color Grading plugin / Mocha for AE / Freeform and more)
Photoshop CS5 Extended (This is NOT the basic Photoshop!!)
Illustrator CS5
Audition CS5.5 (Audio)
Flash Catalyst CS5.5
Flash Professional CS5.5
OnLocation CS5
Encore CS5 (DVD)
Bridge CS5
Device Central CS5.5
Media Encoder CS5.5


When life gives you dilemmas...make dilemmanade.

I'm tending toward Avid at this point, but the Adobe package is compelling due to everything that comes with the suite. Of course, I'll have to buy a $700 Nvidia graphics card. I dunno.

You don't need an expensive video card to run Production Premium CS5.5 applications. In Premiere Pro, the Mercury Playback Engine will work in software mode just fine. Of course, it helps editing workflow to have a qualified NVIDIA card installed. Many things, especially effects, become accelerated.

Yes, Encore only comes with Premiere Pro standalone or as part of Production Premium and Master Collection.
