After a few weeks of trying to burn a stutter free DVD with Roxio Toast 11, i came across a thread noting some of the culprits for this problem. My problem specifically was tied to frame rate. Roxio seems to use a frame rate of 23.997, where as the videos i was trying to burn were in a 30 fps (frames per second). This caused a dropped/skipped frame very often, and very noticeably. After realizing this, i was ecstatic, but still have one more issue to resolve. I cannot get Toast to stop encoding. Every DVD i have made, is sub-par video quality. Even while using a MPEG2 that is clean, Roxio can't help itself, and just re-encodes it to a lesser quality, which is pixalated and poor quality.
So my final question, is what are the settings needed on a video file, so that when i select NEVER REENCODE, it will actually listen. So far i the best i have tried is MPEG2, 23.997 frames per second, AAC audio 192 kbps dolby digital. If anyone can enlighten me on what specifically is needed to keep Toast from re-encoding, i would be overwhelmed with joy.
