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.
