  1. I am trying to burn DVD and Blu-ray with multiple audio tracks options (i.e. Stereo, 5.1 and other languages). I've been searching for a few days how to do this but can't find any literature or how to videos. Is it even possible with Roxio Toast 19 Pro? Thanks! Greg
  2. I'm trying to burn 4-5gb .mov files (about 2 hrs long each) to 25gb blu-ray discs. At first, I put about 18gb of files onto one project and Toast showed remaining space. It encoded for hours, then gave me an error that the project didn't fit by a few megabytes... So I removed the files off the project one by one, until I had ONE file that was taking up 16gb on the disc. Why is Toast blowing up a 4gb file to 16gb? I thought a 4gb file should take up exactly 4gb of space on the disc.
  3. I have used Toast 12, 15 with the BluRay plugin and now just purchased 16 Pro to burn BluRay...for only one reason and this update didn't fix it... I use the latest version of Final Cut Pro and use the chapter marker function to place markers on my timeline...This function works perfectly when I burn a DVD and they line up...however, when I burn the high def files to BluRay, two things strange happen...First, the markers NEVER line up and secondly, there are many more chapter markers than I initially created. When burning either DVD or BluRay, I leave the button on Auto and again, it works fine as a DVD...but BluRay is simply a mess !!! Finally, it says it puts the titles underneath the chapter images but I have never gotten that to work. To be honest, I have yet to find any software that looks as elegant as the original Mac DVD burning software but of course Apple abandoned all of that long ago and I have been searching for a third party solution that looks that good for years now. Like I originally said....Am I missing something or doing something wrong as I am tired of this software not delivering what it promises ! Obviously, I wasted my money on the upgrade and will never upgrade again after already doing it twice.
  4. Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post. I have an OWC Mercury Pro drive and Toast 15. I'm able to burn both a Sony Blu-ray Disc and a Verbatim DVD. I can play my DVD on my Mercury Pro but can't play either that or the Blu-ray Disc on my Samsung Blu-ray player. I did check both discs and I can verify both are burned. Why can't I play either on my Samsung Blu-ray player?
  5. Looking to see if I can convert a bluray image file (that I saved to hard drive) & burn on DVD. I've tried to use Copy & Convert. This is what doesn't work Went to Add Source > movies > Found file on hard drive (15.5 GB) > it cached file > and showed up in "Source" box . Output method to DVD but it doesn't want to compress file to fit on DVD. The whole reason I upgraded to 5 Pro was because the customer service rep said this is what I needed for this task. Any help would be great. Jake
  6. I am submitting my video to a film festival and it needs to be a blu-ray disk, NTSC region 0 or 1. I have toast 14 Pro. What is the best and/or easiest way to get it done from the finished edit in timeline from Final Cut Pro X (FCPX)? Should I try and burn it using a H264 and a separate audio file exported from Compressor? Or Export/Create a Quicktime (QT) file of my finished timeline video, and import that into Toast to burn the Blu-ray disk?
  7. Hi, I made an export using iMovie 10.1, using Apple PreRes. The info box says: Size 1920x1080, Colorprofile HD (1-1-1), Codecs: Linear PCM, Apple ProRes 422, Timecode. Additional info from QT-infobox: Framerate 29,97, Bitrate 142.0 bit/sec I want to burn a BluRay-disc (BD), but not waste a lot of discs trying the right settings , so my question is: What quality setting in Toast '11 must I use: ​Best ? or Custom, and if so, what settings?:MPEG-4AVC or MPEG-2 Average Bit Rate and Max Bit Rate Motion estimation? Select Half-PEL? Reencoding? Field dominance progressive I am sure Aspect ratio automatic or 16:9 Audio Format: Dolby Digital or PCM, and at what date rate? I appreciate the effort, sincerely
  8. Hi, I have a problem with Roxio NXT3. Basically what I'm trying to do is import my film that is in .mkv format but it always results in an app hang. I also tried to import the same file but in .mov format with the same result. Please note that the .mkv file is the same film but with subtitles in there. If I try a smaller size file, let's say 8-9GB, it seems to import, though it still takes a few minutes. BluRay file is roughly 40GB. Is there anything I can do?
  9. I purchased Roxio Video Lab HD SPECIFICALLY to burn bluray movies for my new ultra igh def tv. I add the movies, it converts them (in like 12 hours) and then either my computer crashes or I get a burn error. so I am left trying over (12 more hours) or I have a folder with a bunch of proxy files. I have tried saving as .iso and then burning, but that will not play in my BLU-RAY player. I have tried both copy and convert, and create dvd - it is just so time consuming I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. Using Windows 7
  10. Recently, I tried to record an image onto a blank BD but for some reason my NXT 3 Pro reads the BD as a DVD-RAM. I didn't have this problem before. I used to record them just fine but I don't know what happened? I use Windows 8.1 (64 bit) on Toshiba Satellite laptop. 6GB RAM Note: The information on sig line is my desktop info
  11. Where can I buy the HD/BD plugin for NXT2? I recently put a BD-burner intu my PC. But NXT2 doesnt offer me BD-handling. In the shop I only found the plugin for NXT3. I tried it but didnt work. I dont want to upgrade to NXT3, just update my NXT2. Thanks in advance! Regards Uli
  12. I have a registered copy of Toast 5, considering an upgrade; but really all I am looking for is the ability to author BluRay DVDs. I use studio pro for standard DVDs. Any recommendations or advise? Thanks!
  13. Hi, has anyone else had an issue with Toast 12 burning to bluray? I have the bluray/HD plugin installed (from Toast 11), setup the disc, add files (apple intermediate codec), create the menu etc. Then I hit the burn button to start the process. It starts encoding and makes it through that ok. Then it gets to about 60 - 65% into the bluray disc writing process and stops. To clarify, by 'stop', I mean the percentage complete indicator stops, the write speed seems to freeze, but my bluray burner is definitely still trying to do something. I've tried 3 times and on the last go left it for 22 hours once the percentage had stopped moving up, just to see if the program was still 'thinking' about the next step before progressing. Upon hitting cancel, the dialogue box that asks if I'm sure I want to cancel only lasts on screen for about a second. When I do confirm the cancel quick enough, it doesn't actually stop the process. I have to Force Quit Toast and shut down my computer to get the process to stop.m When I go into Force Quit, it doesn't say that Toast is 'Not Responding'. This is the first time I've been using Toast 12 to burn bluray - did it with Toast 11 ok. I have a Macbook Pro, version 10.6.8, use Verbatim single layer bluray discs, and an external Mercury Pro Optical bluray burner drive connected by firewire. Any ideas?

  15. On a Macbook Pro, I burned many bluray discs with AVCHD video file with Toast 11 on my Samsung external writer and now that I need to recover one video file, I only see a big BDMV file with a "certificate" folder aside. Inside the "Certificate" folder there is a "Backup" folder but it is empty. What do I do to recover the AVCHD files?
  16. How can I play BluRay Discs on my player. I have a bluRay player with no software and was trying to play on Roxio ????
  17. Hello. I need some help with Toast 12 Titanium .. How do I burn a *lossless* data blu-ray disc? I've gone through all the preferences possible, emptied my "Trash", repaired disk permissions, restarted my computer.. everything.. but when I add a folder to the window, it calculates the folder as being a few gigabytes smaller than the original.. I don't see an option anywhere that is allowing me to select render-quality or to avoid using "compression".. Even in the "Options" tab (right next to the "Media" tab) there is no option for compression/no compression.. I've also tried compressing my original data into .zip folder and then adding it to Toast, which still ended up importing a filesize smaller than that of the original.. I am looking to back up very valuable information and need to make sure that every single file is exactly as they were originally (aka no compression whatsoever).. Can anybody help me in how I can go about making an *exact/flawless/no compression* blu-ray data disk in Toast 12 Titanium? Thank you so much!
  18. Shout out to Mr Hardin... Thank you sir for assisting me about a year ago...your answer to my post got me over a hump. I have a Canon HG-10 camcorder (records video to its hard disk in AVCHD format) Prior to my recently reading your response I was unable to burn anything to DVD or BD and ready to write the Roxio 2012, NXT Pro and BluRay Plug-in off as a poor purchasing decision and loss. I did do a Repair to try and address the Menu Encoding Error I had received in past attempts. The trick of adding a VideoWave project as a movie to a MyDVD project and then burning that to folder set allowed me to finally Burn Data Disc and create a playable DVD! So to everyone on the forum, my current issue and question is... I attended a wedding recently and was asked to take the video. As stated above, I was able to use this method to create a DVD by performing a Burn Data Disc, adding the VIDEO_TS folder and burning to blank DVD in optical drive and it played back on player. Now I have created a new BluRay MyDVD project of the same wedding footage (although having performed conversion of the videos within NXT Pro from the camera's native AVCHD .MTS format files to .mp4 files) and in the same manner have burned the MyDVD Blu-Ray project to a Folder set that it created in the path I gave and to a MyDVD folder. Within this folder are BDMV, CERTIFICATE and Roxio sub folders. My first inclination is to "Add Folder" and select the BDMV folder and its contents as what to try and burn to BD-R blank disc in my BluRay burner drive via the Burn Data Disc application. When I do an Add -> Folder within Burn Data Disc program do I select the MyDVD, BDMV or the STREAMS folder? I would think the Menus I created would not function if I were to not include the other sub folders within the BDMV folder. At the end of the day I need to have both DVD and Blu-Ray disc version of the wedding video to ship to the wedded couple for them to be able to play on the respective disc player type. Thanks for any help or hints you all can lend. -kevin
  19. So... I am trying to burn a single TV show onto a BluRay disc. The encoding is in h.264, as I get the infamous error if I try with Apple ProRes encoding (error: -18771). I did however get Toast to encode when I exported again in h.264. So, now I've got it finished, and was going to play the disc. First player: - Video: Is lagging at intervals of every 1-2 seconds. Almost as if the player has problems keeping up with the bitrate. - Audio: Completely fine... Second player: - Video: Completely fine... - Audio is out of synch and wont start until it's about 2 min into the video. I have burned and tested in different bitrates. from 10 Mbit to 20 Mbit. I have tested everything from .mov to .mp4. I have tested different codecs (most of wich I have no way of remembering all. I have tested 1080p25 and 1080i50, even down to 720p25. And it just will not synch. And I have found no faults with the original source file at all... As far as I can find, there is alot of errors with the BluRay and HDTV plugin to Toast (and it even seems to have a long history), so I am wondering, should we look for another software solution than Roxio Toast where I work? Any relevant feedback is appreciated.
  20. Hello Everyone I have a problem which might help me .. I use endless bluray burner to burn customer video recording but I do not have all day to burn 2 pcs recording.

  21. Hi I was happy to discover that I can use a BluRay burner and Toast 11 on my Mac Mini OSX 10.8.3 to make backups of many large quicktime movie files I produce with my camera. Usually I burn the complete AdobePremiere work folder to the backup. Toast 11 always writes the discs without a problem and also verifies them. Today I needed to access one of the backups and discovered that I was able to copy smaller files (and folders) back to my hard drive. But the large (15GB) quicktime movie files wouldn't come off the BluRay DVD backup. I got an error -36 after a long wait. I tried this also by booting into a OSX 10.6 partition and booting into Windows XP on the same computer. Error -36 seems to be an I/O error but I couldn't find much more specific. My fault for not checking that I can actually access these backups before wasting $$ on hardware and media. Or is there a way to access these? Thanks Peter
  22. Hi everyone, I am having a problem with Toast quitting unexpectedly during the creation of an Image file after reaching 22%. The hardware is a new Mac Mini quad core i7 with 16 gigs RAM and USB 3.0 ports. The external drive is a LG BE14NU40 BluRay writer. I do have the BD plug in installed and activated. I also have the HD EyeTV where I have recorded several Hallmark Christmas movies that I would like to transfer to BluRay discs. I finally figured out how to create multiple markers and edit out the commercials within EyeTV such that a single file is all I have to export into Toast in my last support request. The resultant file created by EyeTV is an MPEG-4 AVC, 8.0 Mbps high def movie. This is what is being transferred to Toast. I am only trying to include 2 of these movies on a single BD disc....and the file size of each movie is about 11 gigs. I selected the menu type I wanted, changed it to "never reencode" as suggested by Tsantee, and then attempted to select a scene from each movie for the menu. (Edit/find the scene you want/Set picture). For the fist movie it took Toast about 40 seconds to stop thinking about it and give me an image and allow me to click on play &/or find an image I wanted to use. For the second movie....the spinning color wheel never stops spinning and no image appears.....it is locked up....and so I have to "force quit" Toast and start over. After doing that several times I gave up...and skipped picking a scene for the second movie and just went to "Create an Image File". Even though I selected "never re encode" I notice in the prompt that it says "Encoding" while creating the Image file. When it gets to 22% done Toast crashes and everything stops. It's always at 22% when trying again. Same thing happens when I select "Automatic" on the encoding screen, BTW.... I'm afraid Toast still has some major bugs in it. Any help would be appreciated. Dan
  23. Howdy, I've just purchased my first blu-ray drive from OWC and purchased the fabulous Toast 11 with the blu-ray plug-in. I noticed that the maximum bit-rate option for authoring blu-ray discs is 26mbps: http://i.imgur.com/TmX4M.png However, I notice that commercial movies typically play at a max of around 32mbps as I've seen with The Avengers and Prometheus. Is there a way to go beyond 26mbps or another piece of software that'll do that? thanks.
  24. I purchased Toast 11 Titanium thinking it would be a great program. I'm trying to burn to a 50gb dual layer bluray and I'm receiving an error telling me that I can not burn more than 98 files to the disc. What gives? I have close to 500 separate video files from my vacation and i bought blank 50gb dual layer discs thinking this would work. 98 files barely makes a dent in the disc. I am NOT using 5 discs for this. What's the point if there is a limit to how many files can be burned? Can somebody please help? Did I really just buy a program that will be useless to me? PS I'm using a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.8.2 2.8ghz Intel Core i7 with 8gb of RAM if that matters. PLEASE HELP!! Thanks in advance.
  25. I've come to the sad but apparently true conclusion that Toast 11 cannot properly create BluRay disks with menu that will generally play on set top players. Pioneer Elite BDP-05 (1.73 Firmware, the latest), Denon play at Mom's place; just give me a black menu screen with a red dot where the menu items are supposed to be - no back ground, no text. If I remember the menu structure, I can sort of navigate and press play. On a fully updated PS 3, the menus show up and seems to work. But if you have many chapters (which clever generated names like 1, 2, 3 ... and you can't change them in Toast!), navigation is a bear: to get from page 2 of chapters to page 3, you have to got through all of them to get to the forward button. Since you have no control over button navigation, that's not nice. On the Pioneer 05, my first disk actually crashed the player: it froze up, after playing the last chapter of the video (used chapter advance to get to chapter 25). Required power cycle of the pioneer. No commercial BRD has ever done that! My conclusion is that Toast is now actually its namesake: toast. I've been a toast user since back in the old Nubus days with ProTools to burn CDs. I think my options now are DVD Studio Pro for DVDs on Mac, and to use Bootcamp or Parallels to run Windows 7 and DVD Architect Studio from Sony for BR authoring and burning. (wish I had either a rotten tomato or rotten apple icon to display here)
