    Problems registering Toast 20 pro

    I bought Toast 20 pro, installed it and ran it. All seems fine. I am using Majave 14.10.6 on a mid 2012 MBP. I signed into my toast account to register the s/w. Was not able to do that. Contacted Tech support. Here is what I found out. so this is an FYI for those who have yet to do this. Tony de Guzman (Corel) Oct 1, 2021, 13:55 EDT Mr. O'halloran, Thank you for contacting Corel Customer Support Services. My name is Tony, Level 2 Technical Support team, and I have been assigned to your ticket. We apologize for the inconvenience. I understand that you are unable to register your Toast 20 product key (aka serial number). This is an on-going issue, and it has already been reported to our eCommerce department. They are looking into it, but we have no information at this time when the problem will be fixed. What is actually happening here is that your Toast 20 product key/serial number is actually being registered in our database. However, it shows up on our system as "Roxio Creator Platinum NXT 7.1" instead of what it should be, which is "Roxio Toast 20 Pro" or "Roxio Toast 20 Titanium". You can check this by signing in to your Roxio account, and then once signed in, you should see an item named "Roxio Creator Platinum NXT 7.1" --in some cases, it will show up as "Roxio Creator Platinum NXT 8". I cannot tell you, however, what is causing this; the concerned team is still investigating what the root cause is. At any rate, your product key is indeed already registered in our system, albeit under a different product name. This will be fixed soon. I hope this helped. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions. Regards, Tony Corel Customer Support Services

    NEW: Toast 20 & Toast 20 PRO available

    Romad, While it does say that you need to have an optical drive, I'm not certain that it must be an internal drive. Its only if you buy the disc that you'll need it. You may well be able to use a compatible external drive if you want to purchase the DVD version. you can also d/l the installer and get it that way. So there are options.
  3. Here is the link: https://www.roxio.com/en/products/toast/titanium/#tech-specs Looks like it requires OS 10.14.6 (64bit) or later. The pro version allows burning BLUE Ray DVD's. Pro version also provides ability to create custom menus. Go for it.

    Customizing DVD Menus in Toast 18 Pro on a Mac

    I'm using Toast 17, but should be the same as Toast 18. Try this. 1. Open Toast. 2. Click on video tab in the top center. 3. Click on the options tab in the top right corner 4. Select the format tab under format and select the format you want. 5. Under menu style, select customize 6. Select the menu tab in the top center. 7. that will open a window that shows the image of an image. 8. Drag and drop the Photoshop image you want on top of the current image. That show show the image you want. 9. Be sure you type in the menu title you want. The default is my movie. 10. Click OK which will bring you back to the main Toast window. Proceed as usual. If this does not work Then contact tech support directly. Tech support does not monitor these support group posts. Good

    Customizing DVD Menus in Toast 18 Pro on a Mac

    My guess is that you have come across one of the limitations of toast. I have been using toast for many years. Over all these years there have been comments from users that they want much more freedom to create personally created menus rather than the ones provide by the app. Being able to have animations and much feature rich menus is what has been commented on. For what ever reasons, Roxio has not enabled that kind of feature. Hope you find an app that allows for that and includes the features in toast as well.

    disappointing Go64 report for Toast 18.1

    Yes, Toast 18 is 64 bit and is compatible. BUT, the BR plugin IS NOT. It is 32bit. So creating and burning a BR disc may be impaired.

    Toast just keeps crashing

    What OS are you running? I've read where Toast does not play friendly with Mojave and vise versa.

    MYDVD Templates

    Here is what I read: In order to make Toast DVD Menu styles you must have Adobe PhotoShop 8.x or higher installed on your MAC. The Menu styles support unique backgrounds at menu and sub-menu level, custom button sizes, shapes, numbers, and placement, and custom font types. Each menu style is based on a multi-layer Photoshop file. To design a new menu style, simply edit the layers in the PSD file. The Toast compositing engine automatically generates the menus using the PSD file template and inserts the appropriate user entered text and button graphics at burn time. Toast 8 and higher Choose the Video Menu option in Toast and then select DVD. Click on the More button in the bottom left corner. Click on the Menu tab in the widow. Drag and drop any photo file onto the preview picture of the menu. I am using toast 17. My steps: 1. Open toast 2. Select video 3. Under format select DVD video, HD DVD video, Blue ray video 4. Under options/video select DVD video if not already selected 5. Below menu style select customize 6. A window will open, either drag/drop the template you created in PS in the image area or click on select and go to where the file is located and select it. 7. That should allow you to use the customized menu. Hope this helps Bob

    Toast 18

    Here is the link: https://www.roxio.com/en/products/toast/#overview What I can't find is what are the differences between version 17 and 18. Does not appear to be much. The "new" in version 18 is not anything I miss or even know much about. Check it out.

    Toast 17.1 Download.

    What I did, and it worked: I had version 17.0, opened the app, went to the help tab selected check for update, a window opens saying that there is an update to 17.2 with a basic list of changes. I downloaded it, and it now is 17.2 and works. I am using 10.13.6.
