    Burning Cc (.srt) Files

    I have an Mp4 video file and it's accompanying Closed Caption .SRT file. How do I burn them both to a DVD so that I can play the DVD with CC enabled?

    Easy Vhs To Dvd For Mac

    OK then. But how does your unit compare with the Elgato Video Capture. http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmenu/p...roduct3.en.html
  3. Thinking of purchasing your Easy VHS to DVD for Mac. Would like more technical information such as what type of file it produces. Is it an MPEG-4, H.264, DV, etc. Also what frame rate, 2.4 MBit/sec, 1.4 MBit/sec, etc. Thanks

    Imovie To Toast Chapter Markers Workaround

    Correct! I'm using iMovie HD v6.x. Using the Toast Media Browser also imports the chapters as defined in iMovie. Too bad that Roxio Support couldn't tell me this. Thanks!
  5. Here is a method that I discovered which allows me to import chapter markers created in iMovie into Toast. Apparently Toast has not been able to do this accurately through the past few versions. 1. Set Chapter markers in iMovie 2. Save the iMovie file: filename.iMovieProject 3. Control Click on the file and select Show Package Contents 4. GoTo: filename.iMovieProject > Shared Movies > iDVD 5. Option-Drag filename.mov to another location on your HD 6. Open Toast and drag filename.mov into the workspace. 7. Click on the Edit button, select the Video tab, and make sure the Chapter Markers dropdown menu is set to Automatic. Save the resulting Toast file as a disk image (just to check0 The resulting DVD should contain all chapter markers as entered in iMovie and the way Toast 9 should have worked in the first place. NOTE: Toast will place a chapter marker at the beginning of the file, before the first chapter marker that you have entered, resulting in one additional marker.

    Slow Disk Image Creation

    Lately, when saving a Toast 8.01 file as a disk image, the process is VERY slow. In the progress bar while compiling the file, the status message always reads Waiting...., while the percentage completed increments VERY slowly. It took 53 minutes to compile a file with a length of 1:47:23. It then took another 3 minutes to write the file to the hard drive. The total length of the file is 1:47:23. This is NOT burning a disk but saving a disk image to my hard drive. Disk burning is also very slow. Using a 16x blank DVD, it took 6:25 to write to the disk with lead-ins and lead-outs. Average write speed was 9x varying from 6x to 17x. (How it can write at 17x with a 16x disk is beyond me.) I am using a Macintosh Dual 2.7 GHz PowerPC G5, System 10.4.10 with 8 GB DDR SDRAM and burning on the Apple supplied SuperDrive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
