I hope this is the same as the "My DVD" software that came with my Toast 14 yesterday.

 

I took some AVCHD files, used Toast 14 to make them NTSC .movs (29.97, 640x480 about as generic as Toast can do).

 

Dropped a .mov into MyDVD, and got the "Unacceptable File Type" error.  

 

Useless, because the warning box doesn't say "why"!!

 

What do you guys do?

Well, if there had been a drop-down option for 720x480... but since there wasn't, it's 640x480 Letterbox, which equates to 720x480.

I just re-tried with iMovie (AVCHD clips in iMovie)...  output .mov 640x480 Letterbox (720x480) and MyDVD liked it.

 

Difference: iMovie with Audio track vs Toast with Audio unchecked.

 

I also did an iMovie with no Audio , which also got the Unacceptable File Type in MyDVD.

No, not exactly. Toast DVD (this sub-forum) is about a derivative version of Toast that one can buy in the Apple App Store. [Press release]

 

I took some AVCHD files, used Toast 14 to make them NTSC .movs (29.97, 640x480 about as generic as Toast can do).

Dropped a .mov into MyDVD, and got the "Unacceptable File Type" error.

You should be able to make a DVD from your AVCHD files directly, without needing an intermediate format.

I don't know how to retire this thread, since there's the other thread that others started...

Thanks, theoldarchiver -

 

My situation is that I don't do Nat Sound with the audio from the Clips. So I had unchecked "audio".

 

I'll have to study further if I can substitute audio.

 

Is there a new Sub Forum for "MyDVD" that came with Toast 14 yesterday! :)

 

THANKS!!
