So the encoding took a little more than 2 hours for every hour of video. The speed depends on the speed of your Mac, the amount of RAM, and the format of the source video. You might try the DivX encoder available from DivX to use as a comparison. I'm wondering why you didn't apply any of the many Toast 7 update when they were available. Using .0 of any version of Toast is using a pretty buggy application. Unfortunately those updates are no longer available from Roxio. Maybe you can find them elsewhere.
I'm just a fellow Toast-user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may provide. And do let me know if your issue gets solved. Cheers from Eugene, Oregon!
