    Chapter trouble

    I have the exact same problem, but I don't have iMovie. I can't believe Toast can't create chapters natively? Has anyone tried the Quicktime method? I'm running Snow Leopard.

    Compressor To Toast To Blu-ray

    Jason, I just burned a blu-ray with Toast multiplexing the m2v and ac3 from Compressor..... it looks great on my 52" TV and has no pixelation or artifacts!

    Compressor To Toast To Blu-ray

    Even if you set Toast to never reencode, it WILL reencode unless you feed it exactly what it wants... When I give Toast an m2v elementary stream and a .ac3 stream with the same filename, it recognizes both and does NOT reencode it. Instead, it multiplexes and burns. I'm burning my first Blu Ray w/ Toast as I'm writing this. For those who used Compressor to encode and not Toast: when Toast multiplexed the files, did you ever have any success in getting smooth playback? Conrad
  4. Do the assets you drop into Toast HAVE to be demuxed? If I try to give Toast a properly formatted MPEG2 or MPEG4 file, will it re-encode it regardless? I spent all day converting my DVCPROHD footage into high quality h.264 files. Even when Toast is set to NEVER re-encode..... it still tries to re-encode my footage!!! Conrad
  5. Thanks for that info; can you tell me, where is the setting in Toast to set re-encoding to "Never"?
  6. Hello, I have purchased Toast version 9 and 10, as well as the blu-ray plug in for both versions. I have video in FCP that is DVCPROHD at 720p. I have tried exporting to a Quicktime file and dragging and dropping that file into Toast to burn a blu-ray disc. It took forever for Toast to encode, but finally finished and burned a disc. I put it in my blu-ray player, and it looks terrible compared to the raw HD footage on my laptop. I've read online that Toast simply does not have the extensive capabilities for encoding that Compressor does. I want to use Compressor to encode the footage. My question: in what format/settings do I have to export using Compressor in order for Toast to NOT re-encode anything? What file format AND file extension do I have to feed Toast so that it doesn't re-encode my footage? I have a few very short videos (about 20 minutes worth of footage) that I want to burn to Blu-Ray so I want to use the HIGHEST POSSIBLE DATA RATE. Yes, I know I have to export as an MPEG2 in Compressor, but as a Transport Stream or as a Program Stream? Will that include the audio as well? Thx in advance, Conrad
