    Data Recovery after crash

    Well, if it's going to happen, it's going to happen to me! lol I did end up redoing the recording and everything went fine the second time around, thank the Heavens and stars. I bet the original file was corrupt, since the status bar for the saving of the MPG file stopped at about the quarter-way point before the app crashed. All's well that ends well, I guess. Hope this doesn't happen again! Thanks for the replies.

    Data Recovery after crash

    I did look. There's the partial saved movie in my movies folder - 756.1MB. Also looked inside the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD app package. Looked in the Library folders, both in my home folder and under the root directory, under the Application Support/Roxio folder and there was nothing there that even mentioned Easy VHS to DVD (in either folder). In a Finder window, I clicked "Today" under the Search For section and all it lists are the applications I've used and the partial saved movie. Any other ideas on where else to look? If a crash just wipes a movie out with no provisions for recovery, that's just plain evil IMHO.

    Data Recovery after crash

    Hi there, I just finished recording a 2 hour video with Easy VHS to DVD for Mac, and as the app was saving what I was recording to my Movies folder it crashed. Does this mean that what I recorded is gone forever, or is there some chance of recovering it? Thanks in advance.

    Quicktime Chapters Revisited

    Well, guys, I feel friggin' stoopid. If you click on the "More" button in the Format section of the disc options pull out, there's a check box that says "Include Scene Menus for Video." Where's the brick wall for me to whack my head against. Well, at least I figured out a good way to add chapter tracks. That's gotta be useful to a lot of people. Happy New Yeay!

    Quicktime Chapters Revisited

    Hi there, The other day I asked about if Toast recognized Quicktime chapter markers. After some self experimentation, I concluded that Toast did not. But, happily, it is not so. Toast absolutely recognizes these markers. Here is my source of my confusion: Toast is supposed to set up a slideshow menu with thumbnails for quick access to chapters (this is according to the menu styles design guide) but it does not. The only way I found out that the chapters were set up in my latest tests was by using the chapter advance button. The Quicktime chapters will show up if the DVD Chapters selection in Toast is set up either on "Automatic" or "None," but, according to the menu styles design guide, the slideshow menu will only be set up if you choose "Automatic," or if you use the time options they provide. Neither of those options gives you (me) a menu. Am I doing something wrong here? Is there a way to set up the slideshow sub-menu for the chapters? I'm so close in accomplishing what I want to do, yet I'm miles away. If you want to learn how to set up Quicktime chapter markers, go to http://www.apple.com/quicktime/tutorials/chaptertracks.html . You will need the latest version of Quicktime Pro. Thanks in advance

    Leaving out menu layers

    Hi there, If I have 8 items on a DVD, and I want to split the menu selection up to be four and four, is it alright to delete the 6 button layer from a menu's PSD. Logic says yes, but I want to be sure. Thanks in advance.

    Will Toast see/use Quicktime chapter tracks?

    Nope, doesn't work, unfortuately. Does sonic listen to feature requests? I think either having Toast recognize QT chapters, or giving Toast the ability to allow user defined chapters would be a feature consumers would go for.

    Will Toast see/use Quicktime chapter tracks?

    Thanks, John, I'm doing just what you suggested now (about 80% done). Curiously, QT markers are not recognized in iDVD. If they are in Toast, that'd be great because I think Toast gives me a higher quality burn.

    Will Toast see/use Quicktime chapter tracks?

    Hi there, I have several video files which I would like to burn onto DVD, but I would like to add chapters to the DVDs I create. But, above that, I would like to have a more sophisticated chapter set up than the arbitrary time schemes which toast allows. Importing the movies into iMovie takes a long time, so I wanted to see if there was an easier solution. In my research, I found that Quicktime allows you to create chapter tracks in any supported file format, and there's a inexpensive program called chapterizer which will aid in the creating chapters for quicktime. So my question is this: If I set up chapters in a Quicktime movie, if I set up Toast's chapter option to "Automatic" will Toast recognize and use the defined Quicktime chapters? Thanks in advance, Malcolm
