Adding/editing Sub Menu Titles In Dvd Page

Question

Hello,

 

I am new to Toast. I need to know how to change the titles in the menu options for my DVD. Meaning I can change the title of the DVD but the sub menus are set to "my movie" and I need to change those to the appropriate movie that is place in the DVD. I have two productions that will be on this DVD so from the home page/menu I need to change the 'my movie' sub menu buttons to the titles of my two productions. Please help. I am on a deadline.

 

I'm liking how Toast is working thus far though. Gone are my days with Compressor and DVD Studio Pro.

The "My Movie" titles for the individual movies will be whatever name you've given them in the main Toast window, presuming they aren't too long to fit the template. You cannot preview these, however, so the window you displayed in the screen shot cannot be changed. In order to see how the menu looks before burning the DVD you need to choose Save as Disc Image (File menu) and then in the Finder control-click on the resulting .toast file and choose Mount It from the contextual menu that appears. You then can view the mounted disc image with DVD Player the same as if you inserted a DVD disc. If everything looks good, burn the .toast file to DVD using the Image File Setting in the Toast Copy window.

Hello, Thank you for the quick response I'm almost there. If I could bother you on one more thing I will leave you alone. Sorry if this has been covered but I can't seem to find the answer, anywhere on the net. I have shot 4 small corporate productions with an Epic, looks great. Cut it, colored, sound, etc. I have the finals outputted in masters for web and BluRay, fine. Client wants SD DVD's for trade shows and their clients who do not have BluRay players so she wants DVD's. I have tried everything to get a clean DVD. They look terrible. I understand that HD does not work on SD DVD but can I not at least get the picture to look like a DVD? Meaning clean and the way DVD's looked before HD? I am getting pixelation and just ugliness.

 

I have tried Compressor and DVD Studio Pro from my FCP7. I have tried output from FCPX. I have tried Encore and it just crashes on my now thanks I guess to Mavericks. I purchased Toast Titanium 11, worked different settings and still no good. What in the world can I do to make a DVD look right? Is there some special set of settings I do not know nor can I find? It baffles me that old SD video to DVD looks better than HD to DVD. I've been two days on this trying to make simple DVD's. My masters are ProRes 422 .mov. I really wish someone could simply state what settings to use. I have read everything under the sun with a whole lot of different answers. I now have a sizable stack DVD coasters.

 

Any help would be saving me right now.

I have found it best to convert the video to SD prior to having Toast make the DVD. Here are the QuickTime export settings that to me work the best.
