Just bought Toast 11 and I'm glad to say that so far it's stable on all the tasks I've thrown at it. This is on an early-2008 MacBook Pro running Mavericks.
I am looking for a way to burn my Final Cut Pro X movies to DVD (standard def). I bought Toast because iDVD is essentially orphaned and doesn't handle the newer codecs very well, and because (hooray) Toast is the only alternative I've seen that recognizes the chapter markers I've embedded in my FCP movies and will automatically create good looking menu items for them. (The DVD export function of FCPX is very basic in this regard.)
Here's my question: When I burn my DVD, I get good looking menus, but video with rapid movement or panning motions breaks up in a way I've never quite seen before. (I should mention that my source is interlaced, widescreen, standard def video from an older MiniDV-based Canon camcorder.) I'm not talking about the appearance of scan lines, but rather, larger "stripes" of displaced video, or sometimes it looks pixellated, but the "blocks" are pretty huge.
As I said, FCPX offers only very rudimentary DVD menus, but the quality of the final video is very, very good. Hoping somebody can show me how to get the best of both worlds with Toast.
By the way, the video file I'm importing into Toast is 720 x 480, Apple ProRes 422 format.
Thanks in advance!
