    Is DVD movie encoding in Toast 7 better than 6?

    The .mov file was made with FCP 1.0 several years ago--then dumped to VHS as a screener and miniDV to archive. When I upgraded to OSX, FCP no longer worked, and I haven't had occasion to use it again or shell out the high bucks for it. My goal here is to be able to make a DVD of the original movie without a lot of fuss, but the Toast 6 version looked far worse than VHS. I tried importing the .mov file into iMovie, but it would not read it. So, from what you're telling me, Toast 7 might be a good option to get a DVD that looks at least as good as the VHS?
  2. I have a Final Cut Pro project converted to a quicktime .mov file. It looks great in the quicktime player. When I encode it to DVD using Toast 6, the quality seems to substantially degrade. The latest Macworld review says that encoder in version 7 is new. Has anyone used it and compared it to version 6? I'm trying to determine if the quality would improve doing the same task in version 7. I tried posting this in the Toast 7 forum, but have yet to get a response. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Encoding Stalling--Advice?

    I've tried upgrading to Toast 6.1.1 and I get the same exact results, albeit the status bar now says "Multiplexing" when it used to say "Encoding".

    Encoding Stalling--Advice?

    I'm using a 500mhz AGP G4 Tower with Mac OS 10.3.9 and Toast 6.0.3. I have a DVD that was created on an Avid system and plays fine. I am trying to use Toast to burn additional copies of the DVD while adding a DVD menu, along with a slide show, using the Video recording option in Toast. Whenever I try to record, the encoding status bar makes it part way (to the same place every time), and then stops for hours. I've thus far always cancelled the process in Toast after a few hours. There is no crash of the program. I've tried eliminating the slide show, and I still get the same result (though the status bar makes it to a later point on the screen, which I assume is just because it is not saving space for the slide show). I've tried making a disc image of the DVD to see if that was the problem, and the results were the same. I am able to make a direct copy of the DVD using Toast, so I know the disc is fine. Has anyone experienced this?
