    Where's The Custom Menu Background?

    But you know, upon further review, even if works, I still have this big honkin' button in the middle of my image. Kinda sucks.

    Where's The Custom Menu Background?

    I'm using a standard jpeg. Customer support says I should remove the software and re-install the update. Here's spending hours on a simple issue. I'll let you know if it works.

    Hey, that's great. Wish I could do that. I'm on the phone with tech support. What format was the photo that you used? Size?

    Where's The Custom Menu Background?

    Please explain, gaper1. I tried to drag a jpeg image to the background square and it didn't work. This feature was included in the very first iDVD about 200 years ago, why can't Roxio do it?

    In my world, that's false advertising. Sounds like they're holding back a feature so they can sell us Toast 10. Thanks, firenhancer, but I tried that already and couldn't make it work in Toast9. I want my money back.

    Where's The Custom Menu Background?

    Just bought Toast9 and updated it. I'm making a video DVD with one QT file. I would like it to start with a menu with only one button - Play Movie. I don't like any of the cheesy backgrounds so I thought I would use one of my own images, with a customized button, similar to what's done in iDVD. According to the Toast9 User guide, I should have this option under the Menu tab, right after Text Color ("Custom menu Background") but I don't. Why is it missing?

    File Doubles In Size In 6.01

    Yeah, I used compressor. I figured out after I posted that I didn't need to bring in the audio file. I tried it again with just the video file and the same thing happened - the file doubled in size. I went to look at updating my version of Toast - but then read where the upgrade prohibits you from burning I-Tune songs so I didn't. I might just bite the bullet and buy Toast 9 and keep Toast 6 for using I-Tunes anyway I see fit. I'm fighting The Man, baby. Thanks for your attention to my problem. Mark

    File Doubles In Size In 6.01

    Using Toast 6.01 on a Mac Power book G4. I compressed an FCP project that is 84 minutes long into two files: video MPEG-2 (2.94 GB) and audio .aiff file (930 MB). I dragged the video file into the video folder and the audio file in the audio folder. Toast then says it's too big - that the file is 6.9 GB and the blank DVD is 4.4. What's going on? The file seems to double.
