Tsantee thanks again for your interest. I want to make a Blu-Ray disc of video clips from my AVCHD camera.
My camera uses Memory Cards for storage. The problem that I am having is that the disc that I want to create
spans over 3 memory cards. So in order to bring all the video clips to the project area for editing, I need to
swap out memory cards during the process and this is where things get spooky. When I take out the current card
for a new one, the Thumbnail pictures from the previous card is in the place of the Thumbnail pictures of the new
card; however, everything else about the new set of video clips are correct (i.e., duration of the clips, time the
clips were taken, etc.).
(Note the problem with the Thumbnails pictures are occuring in the area on the right in Toast under the
Video section of the Media Settings and one of the options under the Video Menu is AVCHD and once you clic it,
below is where all of your video clips that is on the memory card are displayed and here is where problem
is with the Thumbnails pictures not in the project area).
Now after experimenting with Toast, the only thing that I found that would clear the old
Thumbnail pictures is to close Toast down, change my memory card in the camera and then fire Toast back up.
This is were I ran into my second problem. When I simply use the SAVE option for the project, Toast
loses its reference to all of the video clips in the project and when I start Toast and reference the project, Toast
blows up! the data for project can't be found. Tsantee, you pointed that out to me and it makes senses!
When I was doing my experimenting, I would create a project, drag a couple of clips to the project area and
try to do things that would enable me to change the memory cards out and see that the Thumbnail pictures for the
new video clips would be correct. I tried all kinds of things with the camera, tried changing the setting within Toast,
and finally tried changing some of the setting for the MAC, nothing worked! so I closed down Toast changed the memory
card out and fired Toast back up and the Thumbnail pictures for the new video clips were correct; however, I did not
reference the previous projects because if I had, the system would have crashed. To make a long story short, I
didn't have a complete solution to this bug until you responded to my question about the reason for the crash.
Now I can follow your prescription above for getting around this bug with the Thumbnails or I thought maybe I
could use a Temporary Partition to save my work while I change out memory cards. I thought that video clips
can be drag into a Temporary Partition as well and then burn a Blu-Ray disc. I am thinking that this could be
a bit more efficent. Please let me know what you think about this? Thanks again for your time!
