I just ordered Toast Titanium 10 Standard. (did not realize that the Pro version includes the HD BD plug-in) So I can either cancel the order and upgrade to the Pro version or just buy the plug-in. I already have Lightroom, and really do not see a need for the other Pro applications.
I just started on the Mac with a new iMac 3.06. I am moving over from the PC where I have used Nero and Creator 2009. I also purchased a JVC HD Everio, which unfortunately, does not provide a Mac version of the included software, hence my purchase of Toast (hoping it is as good as Creator 2009).
I have a HDTV and a BR player. I do not plan on creating BR disks at this time since the iMac does not support BR and the disks are way too expensive. From what I have been reading, I can download the video from the camera (I got the one with the SD card slots) and edit the video in Toast. Now this is where I get confused.
1. Use a card reader to download the video into Toast instead of using the camera via USB?
2. Do in Toast what Roxio shows in their tutorials on AVCHD using Creator 2009? They do not seem to have as many tutorials and articles on Toast, unless I am not looking in the right place.
3. The plug-in allows you to create BR video on non BR DVD disks. I have read that you cannot get much content on a regular 4.7 DVD, but still have not seen if you can get more content onto a DL DVD disk. Does anyone know if this will basically double the amount of video you can put on the a non BR Disk?
Thanks for any help and if anyone has some links to sites that deal with Toast and BR that would be appreciated.
