Installing Premiere CC & Encore CS6

( UPDATED) 2014 release of Creative Cloud  

June 18th, 2014

I’ve had a few questions on how to get Encore CS6 installed from Creative Cloud . Encore is actually part of the Premiere CS6 Family installer. You need to follow these 3 steps.

**Note ** These steps can be used to install any older version of CC or CS6.


1. From the Creative Cloud app (shortcuts in the upper right corner on OSX or lower right Taskbar area on Win 7/8) open the Creative Cloud app and scroll down the app list until you see “Filters & Versions”  and  select [Filters and Versions] and a drop down list will appear.

2. From the Drop down list select [Previous Version]Step 1 & 2

3. Scroll down until you see Premiere Pro  and select [Install] . You will see a list of older versions back to CS6. In this case , you’ll see version CS6 and CC 7.0

** NOTE ** make sure you are choosing Premiere Pro  – see pict below – and NOT the newer version Premiere Pro CC  (2014) to see previous versions.

NAB 2013: What’s new in Premiere Pro

Here’s a video my buddy Ryan Brown (Indie Film Maker – http://blog.iamfilmguy.com/) shot in our booth. He’s got a great shooting style when it comes to shoot these types of “run and gun” videos.

In this video I give you a few of my favorite features that made the cut in the next version of Premiere Pro (2013). The features that I’m showing all came from end user requests via our Product Improvement Program under the Help Menu. Engineering really came through on this version and made over 200 changes without disrupting our current interface – no easy task. I’ll be posting more of those features shortly.

The video tries to give you an idea of how the system performs with and without the Tesla board installed. I get lots of questions on how increase performance and thought this might shed some light.

Thunderbolt Update late 2012

I’ve been promising to share some of the testing I’ve been doing with new Thunderbolt devices in regards to our video products. TB is really shaping up quite nicely and this video will show you some of the stuff in my video lab. I could only show what’s currently shipping or what the manufactures will allow me to show – so, there will be more updates on Thunderbolt coming in 2013 as I have lots more cool TB devices….

One of the main things I’ve been doing is testing various Thunderbolt Windows configurations. I’veI asked 3 Adobe Pro Video System builders to build a TB editing machine that they thought would catch my attention. I supplied the motherboards and gave them the freedom to build around it. All 3 did an excellent job. See what you think.

Setting up 3rd party I/O Hardware and CS6


Lately I’ve been getting a lot questions from Premiere Pro users about I/O cards from AJA, Matrox, Black Magic, and Blue Fish. In many cases its been more about driver version requirements matching the version of Premiere Pro CS6 that they are using. As of the writing of this article, Premiere Pro CS6 has been updated to 6.03 for Windows and 6.02 for Mac.

Remember with Premiere Pro CS6 we introduced Adobe Mercury Transmit which is a set of APIs (Application Program Interface) added to Premiere Pro to allow 3rd parties to have direct access to the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine and it’s acceleration. This is a very different method of I/O from previous versions of Premiere or Premiere Pro.

There are several common setup issues that I keep seeing first hand from customers as well as the user to user forums that support our ProVideo & Audio products (many thanks to the people that reply to those posts).

I’ve been working with the leading 3rd party I/O companies that support Premiere Pro and our other Pro Video/Audio tools and will be posting links here. Please feel free to pass this information on to other forums. My main goal is to get people familiar with how setup needs to be done to make it easier to identify hardware driver or Adobe issues.

New Premiere Pro users that are used to FCP or Avid set ups should find these setup videos helpful as well.
