    At least you can adjust the video title and move it around. What is needed is to be able to change the size of the text and font and it would be complete.. If that is possible, at least it would be considered more customizable. You can change the background picture, change the music, but no text changes. Probably the program was written a long time ago (from the looks of the menu template) and no one knows now the coding anymore or the coders are now gone or retired. What would be a great help is to be able to delete from a template the video window playing parts of the video as an option. The best would be to be able to just have a template that is nothing and you can add your own background, music and text font (including changing the size). JUST one template like that would make this program the "go to" for DVD and Blu-ray creation.

    SUCCESS! I have spent the last 7 hours trying different combinations of settings to see if I can actually get a Blu Ray burned from a file that was created in OBS for Mac. I have included screenshots of the settings I used and when I was done massaging it, I was able to bring it into Toast 18 and it actually showed the correct file size and then I was able to burn a working Toast Disc Image and it DID NOT try and re-encode the file. I recorded it as .mkv as you can see in the settings.. then Using the program MKVtools, I changed the audio to AC3, 448 bit rate and saved it back to disk. Then I used tsMuxerGUI to convert it from .mkv to .m2ts and saved it back out. It seems that Toast doesn't like 30fps videos because it's looking for the NTSC default 29.97 fps. UPDATE: One thing I've noticed is now when I click on edit, the video isn't viewable, but the BluRay burns and plays just fine. When you click on EDIT in Toast Pro 17 it does show the video where you can set in and out marks for the burn. Seems like it's a V18 issue. Toast 17.4 (5589) Update Kills viewing video in the edit screen! I'm thinking the same thing happened in V18. I just successfully burned a Dual Layer Blu Ray with 28Gig of data on it. I hope these settings might give others some insight on how to get Toast 18 to work for them. Matt

    That only allows you to change the background image I do believe. UPDATE: Just dragged and dropped a modified photoshop menu file and it only saves a 1 layer image.

    I just paid for Toast 18 on Aug. 17 from the Corel online store. Less than one month later, Toast 19 came out and I am told I have to pay again for it and there is no free upgrade? I literally know of no other software company that does not give free upgrades to customers who purchase just before a major upgrade. This is a real scam. I will be telling my 500+ Mac support clients not to buy Toast any more.

    i bought (and got burned by the qualify of) Toast 18 four months ago.. Now I'm supposed to pay 99 bucks again? If they want to give me a free upgrade I'll try it.. but I'm not paying the 99 bucks again.

    I have it and the Pro Res problem is fixed. Now I can burn files from Final Cut X. I got it as an payed upgrade to Toast 18 Pro.

    I see there is now a Toast 19. Has anyone tried it? Have they solved the issues we have all been experiencing in this thread? Is it unrealistic to expect a free upgrade to Version 19 in order to solve our dilemma? ;-p Matt

    I know this is many years later, but stopping "verify data" also fixed this for me. Problem started with a dodgy disc. It's gone since I altered that. Thanks!

    Looks like turning off verify data fixed the problem. I guess I don't need it anyway. Thanks for your help.

    Hi Hawk - Looks like you've done some effective troubleshooting. I couldn't find any references to firmware for this drive. It looks like your burn is going OK till you get to lead out. Try some of these basic and advanced settings in Toast that I pulled from page 27 of the Toast Manual: Reduce your recording speed. Don't "Verify Data" Make sure "Buffer Underrun Prevention" is on.
