  1. Hello You All, I have been trying hard to get my JVC's .TOD movie-clips in HD format on a DVD in Toast. Problems from beginning to the end. Burning Clips that are in .TOD format to Blueray in Toast, is only possible, if you first write the Blueray as image to disk. After a file has been rendered, Toast crashes. Just restart the burning to image cycle again, and after the same amount of crashes as the amount of files you want to burn, toast finally writes the image. The actual burning process goes well, and you end up with a dvd with HD clips, that work fine on a Sony Blueray Player. But, you also want to edit your clips to a nice movie, and keep the quality you started with, as close as possible. Using Imovie8 ( included in Ilife9 ), I found out, that the best way to preserve the max. quality, is to first open the file in Quicktime. Unlike Imovie6, Imovie8, will not import .TOD files.......thank you Apple. Quicktime will open the .TOD files with the plug-in from JVC installed. Then save the file as Quicktime in the Apple intermediate Codex format. This way, you will virtually loose no quality. Now, you can import the files into Imovie8 and edit everything. This might be some nice information for you all, but now I have a Big Question. I cannot seem to find the right export format in Imovie, to write my HD movie to Blueray format on a DVD in Toast. The disk simply won't play. I tried exporting my Quicktime clip in H.264 format, even dragged and dropped the file in Apple Intermediate Codex format. Toast 10 accepted both, and rendered and burned the disk, but it will not play. The only time ever, I got a blueray format dvd, burned in toast, to play on my Sony Blueray player, was the way I described in the first 7 lines of this message. Anyone ideas ??? Thanks in advance, Marc

    Mac Os Error -18768

    Hello " Davemoppert", It is an interesting error., although I am trying to write .TOD files to Blu-Ray format on a DVD, it looks it generates the same error. What I do, is the following: A add the files to be recorded. Next I tell Toast, to Save to Disk-Image. Every time it finished encoding a file, Toast will crash. In that sys error screen click " OK", and tell Toast to Save to Disk Image again. It looks like Toast is Caching everything, so it will encode the next file. If you have 10 Files, you have to restart the " Save to Disk-Image" 10 times, and then it will multiplex the whole and finish the Image. Next you can write your image to a disk. To my opinion it is a small bug, but have not heard from the Roxio developers about a solution yet. Marc

    No, I just drag and drop them into the " Drag video files or pictures into this area " window. Marc

    Mac Os Error -18768

    I have a very interesting error. I am using a Macbook Pro 15", Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.33 Ghz, 2Gb Ram and OS 10.5.6 Today I downloaded and installed Toast 10 plus the T10 HDBD Plug-in. My idea was, to burn clips I made with my JVC camera on a DVD, playable in a Sony Blu-Ray player. The clips are in .TOD format. I use the option Video / Blu-ray video / Encoding automatic and Video Quality "Best". Medium to write to is set to DVD. ( all clips together 600 Mb ) I tried writing to my internal, and external Sony dvd writer. Same error. I get the following error, during the encoding of the files: " Could not record to disk because of Mac OS error Result Code = -18768 " Now my idea was, to save the disk as disk image. I get the same error as when I try to write to disk. Lucky, when I restart the proces a couple of times, it is proceeding further, and further, everytime I restart the " save as disk image" After 10 re-tries, it finally finishes the image. When I then mount the image in toast, and burn it to DVD, it is working great on my sony blu-ray player. Including the menu, written by Toast. What is the problem........ anyone any ideas ?? Thanks, Marc
