    Super slow application launch

    which mac do you use? which OS? Do you use some maintenance periodic procedure for your mac? Is your mac equipped with hard disk or SSD? how much ram is on board? Eventually, load time is related to insufficient ram, which requires help from your HD, and this increases load times

  6. I am shocked at Toast 19 Pro in 2021. I wish we could just pay Adobe to revive Encore properly. For 100 bucks in 2021 I’m shocked. Come on Toast! Really.. Why don’t you care? Have you even looked at your own forums? I’m here writing this as I try to create an iso / .toast to burn and the encode times are outlandish. 128gb ram / media on M.2 / w9100 16gb I thought it was my burner until I noticed it did everything right outside of Toast. Pioneer 206D So what are we getting with Toast Pro in 2021? No custom menu options? When the hell.. 19 iterations and I have to “turn off” advertising within the “pro” UI? UI mislabeled as Burning disc instead of encoding? why is encoding so slow? These formats have been around for 20+ years. why are the “pro” menu template designs like circa 1992? why are we using work-around methods to burn when the function should just work? Right? I hope people use your auxiliary programs but I’ve always used Adobe. Why can’t Toast be your priority? I don’t want the other programs. Just a working Toast, why can’t ya’ll be kick &%$. This is the fourth straight purchase of Toast I’ve made since v6. What have you developers done with our money? Not very much!!! This “encoding” (Burning disc?) who knows.. has been stalled at 63% for 45 minutes. I could have encoded every asset in best quality with any other program! Anything! My phone could have done this already twice at least. This is constant, I’ve been trying to burn your menu out for days and get junk discs. They just load with a black screen and neither the intro video or menu catches. You have no documentation of this, no foresight into your own product. I don’t want a phone call I want this to work after decades of Toast iterations! It takes so long I thought to actually do a test DVD so I don’t waste any more BR / DVDDL media.. in looking up the issue again, I found this thread and wrote this, while I waited to create an iso / .toast. Dude why is this mislabeled encoding taking so long? Is this 1992? still here, still 63%.. might be this way forever! I’m lucky this is only making me miss out an opportunity to pass on a first birthday video (after all of 2020) to my family in person, guess there’s no deadline and I can mail something out later. Lets say I needed Toast 19 pro for work on production, with deadlines. I couldn’t rely on this. But rely on what anyway? Trash templates and limited execution. Not the forums, tech help or user guide can help here. The issue I am having is your aged and mismanaged product sitting rancid for purchase, Toast 19 Pro.

    SUCCESS! CUSTOM MENUS IN TOAST 18!

    no screen while capturing video

    I just had this happen (exactly) on my Dell XPS-8930 desktop running NXT Pro 6. I might have an idea. I needed to run a video capture experiment on this system; normally not used for this and not since early 2018. It very briefly worked (< 1 min) and then I accidentally dragged the MediaCapture15.exe program window onto my secondary display: an LG 34" Ultra-wide (flat: 2580x1080). The preview monitor (video) disappeared and I tried all of the suggestions to get it back (capture itself and audio monitor work fine just as mentioned by OP). To no avail. Including a scrub down to bare uninstall of NXT 6 Pro using Revo Uninstaller. I believe the cause is that the preview component does not know how to handle a wide display and then just fails to launch (no message). When this system boots, the LG is the main display, until a bit later on in the boot sequence, when it switches over to the DELL S2318 monitor (original with the system). I don't seem to be able to alter this assignment / behavior and it has no other ill effects. I do find it curious that a complete from-scratch re-install of NXT 6 still somehow has "memory" of the LG display encounter and the preview monitor remains MIA. In Device Manager, and the registry, all of details associated with the LG appear related to its built-in HD audio and speakers which I do not use. On one of my laptops (HP Envy 17) I also have an LG Ultra-wide connected, but there the main laptop display is always the first monitor, and (perhaps) fortunately I have never dragged the capture program window onto it. In the past, doing this re-positioning, onto other secondary external 1920x1080 displays (and back), has never provoked disappearing the preview monitor. If I were really curious I might try a complete uninstall of the LG (HD audio and all the rest) and then see if an NXT 6 re-install returns the preview monitor (minus the LG). But not eager for this time expenditure. Since OP's encounter was on NXT 7 and mine was on NXT 6, I am also not eager to "upgrade" to NXT 8 just to see if this got fixed (history says doubtful). Just food for thought and in case somebody at HQ might wish to test my hypothesis on causation. Admittedly low priority so no expectations. Regards, JCN

    I followed uninstall instructions for version 18, downloaded fresh version of 19, installed and tested. Opening time is now down to 12 seconds. So that is an improvement. Thanks!

    Well I see the instructions for uninstalling everything except version 19. I assume it will be pretty close to how to uninstall version 18?

    Does Roxio have a complete uninstaller to clean up cruft?

    My one opens in less than 2s. Probably there is a non compatibility with something remained from previous installations.

    Will look into those blockers but turning off "looking for updates" did not help, still takes about 60 seconds to open.

    Disabling 'Looking for updates at start up' making it much quicker to load.

    Toast 19.0 Stalling under Big Sur (macOS 11.0.1)

    This worked buy frankly ridiculous that they could not get it to do this on its own......

    I have blocked any interconnection from Toast and now it ju opens up quickly. So if you have LittleSnitch or another FW then just bloc the connections.

    Same issue here. 2020 iMac i7
  23. I have been a Corel/Roxio user for MANY years and have come across the usual small problems now and again, after using Creator NXT Pro7 for quite a while I received an email stating Creator NXT Pro8 on special offer AND FREE Blu Ray plugin, when trying to purchase the physical version the website would not let me check out, after 2 WEEKS of frequent emails to Corel and being sent around in circles I was eventually able to purchase the disc even though it had gone up by £8, the disc arrived 10 days later but immediately I ran into problems when trying to install from the disc, I am VERY used to the LONG time the installation takes but on this occasion after OVER 2 Hours (I left it running while I had to go out) I returned to find that it WOULD NOT install stating that "ERROR attempting to read from the installation database: D:\Creator NXTPro...\MultiCamCapture.msi" when closing this message AND a lot of other similar messages about other Roxio apps I tried again, NO LUCK. I tried on 3 different Windows 10 laptops and have got nowhere I even tried 2 other disc drives. After contacting Corel "customer support" they totally fail to understand the situation and will not accept that there is either a problem with NXT Pro8 or the physical disc, I have been given NO help at all, when stating that if no help arrives I will request a disc exchange or full refund including postage both ways, the only reply was "you can only return within 30 days", this even though I only received the disc 2 days before contacting Corel, the disc being purchased on 29th May 2021. All of the agents that I have had email conversations with have given me no reasons why the apps will not install and even when mentioning that I did not receive the link for the FREE Blu Ray plugin I was sent the link which asked me to pay for the plug in. I have come to the conclusion that Corel have NO IDEA when it comes to customers/users bringing these problems to their attention, I have been requesting either an exchange or refund for well over a week but had had no response to my requests, I have also mentioned taking legal action (out of principal) but this has been totally ignored apart from the brief mention of a 30 day returns protocol. Today I reinstalled Creator NXT Pro7 and it is running as it should which proves that the problem is NOT with my laptop or hardware, and I am coming to the end of my tether in wasting time trying to get any type of help from Corel so it could be a return and a LONG wait for a refund (should I be offered one). My view on this hopeless situation is to AVOID COREL/ROXIO AT ALL COSTS and buy software from a company that cares about its customers and products. Best wishes to all, please stay safe, healthy and happy, Stephan.

    CD Markers

    I'm probably the last one who still purchases CDs and Blu-Rays but I use to work with Waveburner for ages burning Audio-CDs from music mixes created on a software that exports WAV or AIFF. Now my old Mac died and Waveburner is now working on one of my new machines. Is Toast Titanium capable to set multiple CD track markers on a 74min audio track ? I could not find any screenshot showing an wave form indicator to make the adjustment.

  27. I have been a Network Engineer for 20 years. Roxio support suggested a clean boot to troubleshoot why a brand new piece of software on Windows 10 Pro doesn't burn mp4's to disc. Their agents have left the chat sessions several times today. They avoid directly answering my questions. Some say an agent will get right back to me. When? 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days? It took 2 days for them to email me their clean boot suggestion. email? That's archaic. Phone or chat would be a lot faster, provided they knew what to do to make this software work without a clean boot. Do yourself a favor and buy something else. I have given support enough chances to make this software work so you don't have to go down the same road. Uninstall and get a refund.

    How to associate .iso file to Creator NXT 8

    Thanks, work for me.
  29. DaveRou68

    Why hasn't Roxio fixed this yet?

    A bit frustrated. Roxio would send me a link and tell to me install 19.4. It would install 19.2 which would crash on opening. I finally unplugged all the USBs and got it to install. Of course, now when I try to burn it stalls at 63%.
