  1. Today
  2. I recently bought a CD copy of Creator NXT 6. I have a ton of NXT 2 VideoWave productions saved on my home PC (Windows 7, 32-bit SP1). To upgrade to Creator NXT 6, do I simply pop in the CD into my CD/DVD drive and let the program install on its own?? I have concerns that all the video productions I saved while using NXT 2 will be altered or messed up by the upgrade. It's quite a bit of an upgrade to go from NXT 2 to NXT 6, but one I needed to make because I had some glitch with the "Create Music Disc Project" program that wasn't allowing me to burn music CD-R's unless they were mp3 discs (the problem was addressed in another forum and no one was able to solve the problem). I am hesitant to remove NXT 2 from my home PC before installing NXT 6. Could I possibly encounter any problems? Please respond. Thanks. My NXT 2 is version 15.0.5.2; 5.0.0.0

    Add to the next toast upgrade

    Well this is just a comment. DVDs are on the way out. Shortly very few people will be able to play DVDS. So right now I am in the process of converting DVDs back to mp4 movies. To do this I am using Handbrake. But I think it would be a great addition to toast.

    Thanks, cd, I flipped back through some archives and looks like one of my more longish videos from the AX100 is about an hour and a half and just at 34 GB. And with the concurrent recording feature, I was thinking the sermon's 1280 footage could be more easily be sent to dvd, and the 4K could be uploaded to Youtube. Still not sure about using Roxio for the 4K, though, and still need xlr input. Also, from the help guide "The maximum continuous recording time of a movie is approximately 13 hours. "

    Toast 17 non-functional on download

    Okay folks, in case somebody else wanders in with this issue, it's a matter of a clean install. I followed full uninstall instructions, then reinstalled from a link supplied by customer service. So it opens, just does not work with my Toast 16 projects. Big sigh.

    exFAT has been adopted by the SD Card Association as the default file system for SDXC cards larger than 32 GB. http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat.htm
  8. I have been a Mac user since 1984, and a Toast user since Toast 5. I bought the latest and greatest, and it won't open. I have had my iMac checked, deleted and re-installed T17. And now I have contacted Support and will be receiving an email at some point... miss the days of talking to someone helpful right away. Has anyone else had this problem (2015 iMac, High Sierra 10.13.)? Here is the header for the lengthy error readout I get on trying to open Toast 17: Process: Toast Titanium [3746] Path: /Applications/Toast 17 Titanium/Toast Titanium.app/Contents/MacOS/Toast Titanium Identifier: com.roxio.Toast Version: 17 [5379] (17) Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: ???

    Thanks Jim, I thought I'd add that since EMUMC mentioned buying a new camera anyway, I thought to just let him know that at least this one Sony and probably others (that do have the xlr inputs) can record without the time/size limitations to relatively inexpensive SDXC cards. Of course you know the technical stuff is way over my head so I'm probably totally missing the point!

    Kari: the problem is that there are long recordings and the majority of SD cards that camcorders have to be in FAT32 format. And FAT32 has a 4GB limit on file size Hence the separate files that have to be connected. I am hoping that if he can get by with the lower resolution, he can record without reaching the 4GB limitation.

    Just to add on to Jim's comment about Sony. I have the Sony AX100 which can record using the XAVCS format in an mp4 wrapper to SDXC cards at 3840 x 2160 without having to merge files. The AX100 does not have xlr inputs, but there are adapters like the Beachtek or, also, Sony makes a newer pro version (Sony NX80) that does have xlr inputs. The problem I ran into with the AX100 was that Roxio didn't like its UHD footage. It would play the video, but not the audio. That may have been corrected in the most recent Roxio versions but I haven't tried recently. You might be able to get around that, because you can set the AX100 to concurrently record "4K" (UHD) and 1280 x 720. IIRC, Roxio accepted the audio from the 1280 footage np. (I'm not sure how Roxio would handle video from the NX80) Anyway, just to say if the Panasonic doesn't do what you want, there may be another option

    I'm not a Toast user, but there's a difference between an Audio CD and an MP3 CD. The format of the data on the disc is completely different. With an Audio CD, the format of the data is essentially a .WAV format, and the cross-fade option actually overlaps the music, and creates a new location for the start of the Track, and you can fit about 80 minutes of music on such a disc, and the tracks have a definite "order" when the disc is played. (Not that you can't use "shuffle" play, but you'll always here the overlap from the "previous" song in the original play order.) An MP3 CD is a Data CD with MP3 files. You don't identify the order of playback when you create such a disc, and you can fit many hours of music onto the disc. You should be able to create an Audio CD using MP3 files, at which point, the MP3 files are decompressed into the .WAV format, and again, the Audio CD is created with an anticipated playback order. Not sure if that helps or not?
  13. Earlier
  14. So do you still have a question or are you finished here?
  15. I only posted the sketch to show what I'm looking to do. I wasn't asking for help on this. I had done that on the PD forum, and, worked with CL support. Sorry. I should have been more specific.
  16. Since the OP has returned the Cyberlink program; perhaps we should close out this thread. The OP has Creator 2012; perhaps someone can suggest how he can get a menu the way he wants and still have room on the DVD?

    OK, so this isn't going to work. What a surprise!
  18. I have barely scratched the surface with PD but, yes it can do both of those as far as I know. For obvious reasons we are not here to support a competing product, but I'll see if one of the gurus can advise you on this.
  19. PD17 is a very good program... if you don;t mind the basic menu structure - which is probably okay for most. Attached is a sketch of a simple menu structure I wanted,. I was surprised it couldn't do it. The root menu only had 'Play All' and 'Select Scenes'. I found no way to add submenus. CyberLink was no help. All they said is I can add to the 'Root' menu, but couldn't find a way to do that! I found it surprising, and disappointing. Very limited, which made it useless to me. Creator 2012 can do this, but doesn't have the option to add subtitles.
  20. Sorry to hear you had those issues. One would think it not only do those things, but make it easy to do!
  21. I did purchase PD Pro 17. Should have did the trial, as I 'returned' it for a refund. - Although the DVD/BR menus are very easy to design, they have one basic overall design... Root menu/Sub menu. I had wanted a few sub menus. CL said it was possible, but wouldn't tell me how!!! I couldn't find a way. - There's an issue with using NVidia encoding. Starting with a recent version of the drivers, Nvidia encoding is NOT available. CL's encoding options are very cryptic, and does not tell you what types of encoding is enabled. Poor design. I like the other features. The DVD menu limitation was adeal killer. I really would like to be able to put a subtitle track down. I'll re-install my Roxio Creator 2012 Pro. I'd really like to get Bluray XL and subttitles. I'll probably trial a few other softwares.

    I thought the nature of an mp3 disc was to hold mp3s. Lots of times, I've had a collection of mp3s that segue. Anyway, the new problem is that apparently, with 17, it won't accept an mp3 of any kind in order to create a CD disc (you could do this in Toast 10). ...and, again, if you try to line up a bunch of mp3s for an "mp3 Disc" there's no way to create segues.

    The Canon will not accept NTFS nor will it accept a card unless it initialized it. Thus we are stuck in FAT32, which is used for it’s internal RAM Drive as well. The store clerk was mistaken, Sony is about the only camcorders that use mp4. The rest of the world use MTS for Hd Capture. (Sony developed MP4) Check your JVC, it will have lower quality setting. Try those with the tests I suggested. Do a short one first to make sure the quality will be acceptable for your purpose. Then do a long one, like you intend to use, and test the outcome.

    We have a JVC AVCHD camcorder. The Canon was a cheaper one I looked at to buy instead of the one linked, but it only records in AVCHD. My understanding is that it has limitations in size (perhaps due to Fat32 I believe). I do keep the merged files (and right now at least the original AVCHD MTS files). I will have to see if I can put both files into VideoWave and do the chapters. I thought it would add a chapter or break where the two files were separated. I will have to see if the current one will let me choose different quality on the camera level side. We still need one with the inputs for our sound system and the ability to zoom in from app 125 feet away (from a balcony). I am not sure if that will work for the old or new cameras. I do for jump drives assuming I don't need to use on older computers.

    Unable to burn BD discs

    That's one of the brands that gave me the error message. Thanks anyway.

    Video is rotated after importing

    It’s from my iPhone 8 and it’s in the .mov format. And it imports the video but the video is rotated in toast and is normal when I open the file outside of Toast.

    No application can do that, without making one big file. Such is the nature of an MP3 disc.
