    Reading Toast Docs

    I have a number of Toast 8 document which contain important information about CDs I have created using Toast. In the Finder they show that they have 8 to 12 K in them. I know there are maybe a dozen lines of text in each them. But I can't find any programs that will open them. The Finder shows their Kind as "Toast Document". Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Reading Toast Docs

    Thanks for your suggestions. I tried changing the files to .disc. That did open Toast, but yielded no information other than the title of the CD. They are audio CDs - or I should say listed of the items on the audio CDs. As I said, I know there is data in them because they each have a dozen of so K of data on them. Hm ...

    Reading Toast Docs

    Unfortunately, they are not the disc type files, but text type files. I know there must be data in them because I used to be able to open them, but now neither Toast 8 or any text editor seems to be able to show the data stored in them. I need the data, otherwise I have no idea what's on dozens of CDs I burned with Toast. No fun ...

    Changing Email Address

    I'm trying to change my email address for my forum login, but I keep getting an Registration Code error even though I entered the registration code exactly as it is shown. Can someone help me with this? Thanks

    Changing Email Address

    Thanks for the detailed info on how to change my email address. I followed it exactly, and it worked well up to a point. But from the point where I got the following email: "To start the process for resetting the email and password for your Roxio account, please click the link below" It all went wrong. it basically put me in a continual loop of editing my email address, and then re-logging in and getting another email - the same as above. But nothing has changed. My email address has still not been updated. Challenging ...

    Merging MTS Files

    I'm considering upgrading to Toast 10 and am wondering if it is able to merge multiple .MTS files into one .MTS file - without converting them to another format? And without any loss of quality? Thanks

    Changing Email Address

    This is exactly the way I have been trying to edit my email address, but it is not working.

    Merging MTS Files

    Thanks for your reply. Can Toast 10 edit MTS files and export them in the original MTS format, so that there is no loss of video quality? I'm using a Canon Vixia HF S100 - shooting at 24fps in 1080i.

    Changing Email Address

    This is happening in multiple browsers, such as Firefox and Safari. Is there a way around this, as Roxio doesn't seem to be fixing this issue, and changing an email address shouldn't be this challenging. Thanks for your assistance.

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    Would version 8.0.1 resolve any of the above issues? Roxio Sites has this to say about Version 8.0.1 history: "Resolves a number of issues related to audio playback within Toast." Thanks, Bill

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    Step One: Export Keynote presentation with auto transition settings for every slide, completely synced with audio, using H.264, Video Size: 1024 x 768, Frames per second: 24. Include audio is checked. Step Two: Drag QuickTime video into Toast 8 DVD window. Step Three: Since presentation was set in Keynote to auto play, the video and audio begin playing in Toast 8. Everything seems fine. Step Four: Video quality is set to best. Icon for movie in Toast 8 window shows: Video: H.264, 1024 x 768, 18.63 fps. Audio: Movie. Step Five: Since everything seems fine and audio is playing. Burn to DVD. Step Six: Check finished DVD in Quicktime, VLC, and component DVD player, no audio. Four useless DVD discs later I need some assistance. Any you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks bjast

    QT Pro.mov Records with No Sound

    I have a QT Pro movie which plays perfectly in QuickTime, and plays perfectly in Toast 8 preview. But when I burn it to DVD, or make a disk image of it, there is no audio. Any assistance would be appreciated. Bill J.

    QT Pro.mov Records with No Sound

    Sorry for the need for clarification, but should I delete the original Audio track from movie properties once I have pasted the new audio into the movie, using 'Add to Selection & Scale'? Thanks, Bill

    QT Pro.mov Records with No Sound

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, when I open QT Pro and view the properties of the file it already shows a seperate track for the audio. With properties I listed above. Hmm Bill

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    Well, it's come down to this, after hours of testing, burning and experimenting. I exported my presentation out of Keynote as video with, no with no audio. I spliced together the exact amount of music to match my previous audio/video 'cues' in the original Keynote presentation (that had audio). I opened the exported Keynote Video in Q.T. Pro. I opened the spliced audio (.aiff), selected all, and pasted into the exact selection perimeters in my exported Keynote video. I played it back in Q.T. Pro and it was perfect! I placed the Q.T. Pro file in Toast 8 to make a DVD of the presentation. The Toast * perimeters read as follows: Video: 720 x 540 29.76 fps Audio: 16 bit stereo, 44100 Hz All, just the way it should be. I pressed edit to view the presentation, and you'll never guess what happened? The entire audio of the presentation had move up a key in pitch. I couldn't believe it! Now that seem like a bug to me ... Any thoughts? Thanks, Bill

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    Hello Again: Thanks for staying with me on this. Latest edition: I did the export from Keynote as you suggested. When I opened the two files in QuickTime Pro the movie file started playing at full-screen, because the is the way I have it set-up in Keynote. I was eventually able to copy all the audio from the 'soundtrack' file and paste it into the movie file. But when I saved this file in QT Pro and opened it and tested it in Toast 8, it played two 'embedded' audio tracks. One slightly out of sync with the other. So, the saga continues ... Hope this isn't wearying you. I noticed we're both fellow Oregonians. Thanks for your assistance. Bill

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    I have QT Pro: #1. How did you go about joining the video and audio files together? #2. Since this Keynote presentation is timed synced with the audio and set to auto-run when opened, the video and audio start as soon as QT Pro is opened. #3. What would be the best format to export this in? I would like it to be the very best quality, not matter how large the export file or how long it takes to export. [Then there was the time I rear-ended a car at 5 miles per hour, and the aluminum body folded into the wheels. So when the clever policeman on the scene tried to pry it off the wheels with a crow-bar, the fender simply shredded like a pop can ...] Thanks, Bill

    DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

    It was an iTune track, but I did the make into .aiff and burn onto a CD thing. And then placed it in Keynote. Prior to doing it this way, Keynote would not allow it to be exported. But once I did this, it seemed to export it fine. Although it did make two files: Petra Petra_soundtrack.mov Any suggestions would be welcome. By the way, I noticed your Austin Healey picture. My father had one of these when I grew-up. I believe it was a 1954, the one with no hood scoop and an aluminum body. Quite a sweat machine. Unfortunately, each of the kids had a go at attempting to destroy. My brother had it restored and he eventually sold it. Beautiful black with red interior. Nice ... Bill
