    I haven’t confirmed this for v17, but for a long list of previous versions: you could save a project as a Disk Image file, which would get the .toast extension. If you rename that in Finder to .iso, then you’ll find that is is compatible with many Windows burning software. It won’t make your PC read the Mac file system (HFS/HFS+/APFS), but for DVD-Video (UDF file system) that is not an issue.

    Hi Lamberto, Firstly, may I suggest you change your log-in name to something else than your email address. These forums are scanned by all sorts of 'bots which harvest addresses, and I would hate to see yours harvested and sold to someone who will pester you with lots of spam emails. Videowave in NXT 7 claims to deal with .MTS files, and a large number of other formats. Here is the file input area . . . Since I don't have any .MTS files to test with, would you please attach one or two small ones (just a couple of seconds will do) to a reply, so that I can test that Videowave itself is faulty and not just something wrong with your machine? Regards, Brendon

    They are still there in Toast 17 - you just have to turn them back on in Preferences. Preferences -> Audio tab -> tick "Show advanced audio mastering settings". - Mike J

    Historically, Roxio, and Adaptec before them, did not concern themselves with being backwards compatible, at least with their Creator application. Most releases were not compatible with the prior release build files. The ability to open such files with subsequent versions always fell on deaf ears.

    I have been a Mac user since 1984, and a Toast user since Toast 5. I bought the latest and greatest, and it won't open. I have had my iMac checked, deleted and re-installed T17. And now I have contacted Support and will be receiving an email at some point... miss the days of talking to someone helpful right away. Has anyone else had this problem (2015 iMac, High Sierra 10.13.)? Here is the header for the lengthy error readout I get on trying to open Toast 17: Process: Toast Titanium [3746] Path: /Applications/Toast 17 Titanium/Toast Titanium.app/Contents/MacOS/Toast Titanium Identifier: com.roxio.Toast Version: 17 [5379] (17) Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: ???

Can attach the whole thing if anyone knows or cares... very exasperating...

    Yellow is Video, Red&White are Audio. The Y/R/W leads from the Roxio unit goes into the AV OUT jack of your VCR. Also make sure you have selected the AV OUT on the VCR unit. You could easily check this out by feeding you VCR output into you TV.

    It wouldn't work if only Creator (the big multi-menu thing) was running. The only way I could get it to work was to run Roxio Burn, so this box was visible down in the bottom right of the screen. Then I had to right-click on the ISO and click the flaming disc option Doing that loaded the ISO into Roxio Burn and I then had to click the flaming disc which appeared on the right end of Roxio Burn. Seems a great way to complicate what had been a relatively simple process in NXT4?

    So are the developers going to actually update toast 16 pro so it is 64 bit compatable by the time the next Mac OS rolls out.....which is probably only 6 weeks or so away(July?) Why can’t Roxio tech support themselves just answer with a simple yes/no/we are on to it response to this question? How hard is it for one of them to maybe just ask one of the developers? A bit too hard,much to ask for coupled with/based on my recent non resolved case/ticket support dealings with tech support. Even if they could at least tell customers that “it’s in the pipeline?”...rather than leaving us in limbo like they are doing. J

    Truthfully, I never installed NXT 6 I am installing it now on a Win 10 pc and will dabble with this and see what I come up with. But keep working with Roxio Support as well. Since it is a new feature, they will have more experience with it than I do!

    The black rectangle is a preview frame from the clip, and as such is also a button (select it for playback on the final disc). You can set which frame to use in the Edit window by double-clicking a clip in the main window, then using a slider (not very precise, I know), then Set Picture. It is probably black for you, as the first frame (default) of your clip is black (as it often is). Alternatively, there are some themes (menu templates) that have no preview frame, like Splash. The ‘My Movie’ text in the menu, is the menu title. You can edit that with Customize in the right side panel, then the Menus tab.

    Rachel was kindly thanking Malatekid and reinforcing his suggestion.

    Sadly they really did simplify it to the point of being next to useless The things you cite are gone. Creator 2012 is one of the best but only a eBay item these days and you have to be careful that you get the Product Key with it!

    Your source files work fine on your friend's machine, so there's nothing wrong with them. There is something wrong with your machine, and changing/reinstalling the software hasn't fixed it yet. Rather than trying an entire new Operating System [There be DRAGONS!!] I think you should work on getting your Windows 7 straight again. Windows 7 is a good, mature Operating System, and if a system develops a fault you should never hope to fix it by 'upgrading' your software. If I remember correctly, NXT2 only allows you 10 installs before your key expires (it doesn't care about Repairs) so don't go uninstalling/reinstalling unnecessarily. It would be useful for you to clean the machine up (logically) as Cdanteek suggested. This is worth the time it takes, and should be done regularly to keep the machine 'lean and clean.' The steps are Startup, Cleanup, Defrag, and Scan. - First check the programs which run when Windows starts, and disable any that aren't absolutely necessary. Run MSCONFIG.EXE and uncheck unnecessary programs in the Startup tab. Reboot Windows, and it will start without those things running. - Right-click on your hard drive in your File Explorer, and select Properties. Then click on Disk Cleanup, and in the box which appears, click Cleanup System Files. Windows will do some calculations, and when you give it the go-ahead will delete all the old garbage it indicates. I usually tick all the boxes and delete everything it allows. It's amazing how much there can be. -Once you've done that, go back to Properties (first picture) again and click Tools. Then click on Defragment now, and go do something else while the hard drive is defragmented. It might take hours but it will be worth it, and it won't take so long next time. -Now your system is lean and clean, you should make sure that this problem isn't caused by broken Windows files. Open a CMD window with Admin privileges, and type the command sfc /scannow <enter>. The system will scan its vital organs and replace any corrupted files. You might need your Windows 7 disc handy. Exit the CMD window when finished. If you do all the above things your system should be running properly. Please ask if you have difficulty following my instructions. Brendon

    You will have to join them in VideoWave (Edit Video - Advanced) first, then use the Export As or Prepare for Authoring to create a file that the new and improved (sarcasm) MyDVD can use. You can do this in Video Copy and Convert as well without the file creation first BUT only if you want a No Menu project. If you want a Menu project in VCC it will create a button for each clip added

    Lets start by you taking off your cap locks and type in lower case. Look under Video for a DVD Author application that is what you need to do for it to work on a settop DVD player. Video Easily import photos or video into your PC Create home movies with professional transitions, motion menus and music Burn Video CDs, SVCDs or DVDs Play them back on your home DVD player
