    Why Does Toast 9 Encode M2V Files

    I ended up using Adobe Encore and got vastly superior results. Here was my workflow 1080p ProRes Timeline 30p in FCP Export as QT ProRes Transfer over network to PC Open up Adobe encoder, set to 1080 29.97 fps, Audio Dolby, 10min, 15target, 16 max Export to Adobe Encore burn as blu-ray folders use image burn to write to DVD-5

    Why Does Toast 9 Encode M2V Files

    I have a movie that I want to burn, and it is only 13 minutes long. It is an elementary stream (m2v and ac3). But when I load it into Toast, it insists on encoding the files. This will take quite a while on the G5. In preferences I have encoding set to Never. What gives?
  3. This is quite upsetting to me as I have a Power PC Dual 2.G and Tiger. So basically, Roxio wants to lose money with $000 from me for their "upgrade" which SHOULD have supported TIGER! (and I hope Roxio is reading this!) (Nothing against you though; just undersight by the corporation)

    Exploring Dvdit Pro Hd

    Hi! I don't have this program, as I use a Mac, but have access to PCs as well. Does DVDit Pro HD 1) Burn BR to a 4.7G Standard Disk as Toast Ti does. 2) Will it read Mac h264 files? Thanks

    Dvd It Pro Does 1080p; Why Doesn't Toast

    Ok; where is the Mac version of DVD It Pro then? Do Mac users deserve only second-rate software? I don't think so!

    Dvd It Pro Does 1080p; Why Doesn't Toast

    DVD IT PRO does 1080p; why doesn't Toast The title says it all; why does a PC app by Roxio do 1080p and Toast only make 1080i Hi DeF DVDs????? :angry: :angry:

    Ntsc To Pal Dvd With Roxio Toast

    I have did what you outlined but for some reason it records the first 50% to PAL really quick, slows down to normal speed for the rest of the encode. It only creates about 10minutes of the 1h10 NTSC in the PAL version first program. Any ideas why the PAL burn is way shorter times wise? Confused

    Ntsc To Pal Dvd With Roxio Toast

    Can you take a disc image created in NTSC; then switch Toast to PAL and burn a PAL version from this?

    Changing Pictures Used For Buttons?

    I have found out how to change the menu background image; but was wondering if there is a way to use custom images from photoshop for the buttons. Also, how would one position the buttons over the artwork where one likes it? Thanks

    Letterboxing Xdcam In Standard Definition

    This is exactly what I was talking about! Thanks for the input!

    Letterboxing Xdcam In Standard Definition

    Yes this works; but I had to change the setting on my DVD desktop player to letterbox as well. Is there any way of telling Toast that although it is letterboxed it still is a 4:3 fullscreen production. You see I am using the XDCAM movie as the source material for both the HD DVD master (the client has a HD DVD player) and as the source for the SD letterboxed 4:3 . Thanks p.s I quoted myself and not your message! woops!

    Letterboxing Xdcam In Standard Definition

    When I bring my XDCAM 16:9 footage into a SD project for Toast; it always seems to play the 16:9 footage as fullscreen on a 4:3 display. What settings do I need to invoke in order for Toast to keep the 16:9 footage letterboxed for a standard definition 4:3 burn. Thanks

    What Is The Best Video Format For Burning Hd Dvd

    If you shot in a XDCAM timeline then output QT as XDCam; this codec is good
