  1. In the "sales" information on Toast 11, it says you can CONVERT a file type, to many different file types at ONE Click of the Mouse. But after hours at the controls I cannot find any way to make that work. My Use is converting my thousands of Visual Effects and Stock Footage into avi, mpeg4, H264mov, DivIx, etc. Basically I want to provide the download site with as many logical file types as possible to cater to a Wide Customer Base who use both MACS and PCs, and beyond that want to use a certain specific format for a certain Digital Video Player. I'd like to know from anyone who knows, Once I drag a mov file into that bin, HOW DO I GO ABOUT TELLING TOAST TO CONVERT IT TO 5-6 DIFFERENT FORMATS AT ONCE? Or is that really not how batch converting works? The instructions manual does NOT say anything that I can find about making many files types at once. Thanks if you can help. OH, about thee only way I could conceive of doing this is to Select Scheduled time during the day to do the conversion, which would allow me to return to the previous "MENU" and click to convert another format of the same video clip, and repeat that process once I had gone through this scheduling 5-6 times. Thanks for you replies if you can help, Jon Hyers
  2. Thank you so much for the fast reply. I just today got on this forum, and saw your CAR avatar appear a Lot. YES, both clip images appeared, but the PLAYSTATION 3, my only present Blueray hung up after the first hour played. I DID NOT click the play continuously box, and am going to give it another whirl. I'm also going to buy a standalone Blueray Player too before too long. I'l watch the tutorial too, thanks a lot for the fast reply and the help. I HAD in fact made 2 test bluerays with 5-6 short clips,each being about 2 minutes and it played all of them. My HD film did not fill up the disc according to the "meter". I'll give it another try, and who knows it COULD have just been a bad disc. Thanks
  3. I bought Toast 11 for making Bluerays. I have had no problems with the workflow, but I can't seem to figure out how to make a menu like IDVD does with its 400 menu choices. THe big problem I had was that I dropped two .mov files into the drop area and it burned the BLueray and it played the first hour, but would not play the 2nd hour, which was a 2nd .mov file and it;s image was there on the screen. Any clues? can you not drag and drop? DO I need to make some chapter marks?
