I don't know what to suggest. The way it is supposed to work is to choose DVD video as the format in the Video window, add the video file, set up the menu the way you want and either burn the disc or choose Save as Disc Image. Apparently that didn't get you a good result last time. I don't know about the specs of the video you are trying to encode. Possibly it might help to use the Convert window to first convert it to, say, the AppleTV preset before having Toast encode it for video DVD.

Try encoding with Handbrake first, which will encode and convert to Mp4. Unfortunately Toast will then take HOURS re-encoding it (even if you instruct it not to) before burning VERY SLOWLY so the process can take a couple of days, but I'ver had great results from doing it this way.

Obviously toast is just not the program for the job. Neither is handbrake since they stopped support for the AVI format. I'm sure there are many much better programs available.. The one that I bumped into was Emicsoft Video Converter for MAC. Looks like ^#!& but really simple to use and I managed to convert an hour long 720p HD MKV file directly to VOB with very little loss in quality. The conversion took 40minutes on my Macbook pro when Toast Titanium took somewhere way over 6 hours.
