Toast 12 And 11 Differences

Question

Here is what I've found so far where Toast 12 is different on the surface from Toast 11.

 

No changes in the Data, Audio or Copy windows.

 

Video window: Toast 12 can make the High Definition DVD-Video onto standard and DL DVD discs for playback on Blu-ray disc players without needing to have the Blu-ray plugin. By the way, the Toast 11 Blu-ray plugin is recognized by Toast 12. The DVD & Blu-ray menus are unchanged from Toast 11 (which are different from versions of Toast prior to 11).

 

Convert window: There are many more presets including ones for many different Android devices, Kindle Fire and so forth.

 

Media Browser: Live Screen Capture is added to the Video tab for accessing videos you created with the app. If you previously have EyeTV or TiVo Transfer installed they continue to appear in the browser's Video tab to access those libraries.

 

Preferences: The option to Enable enhanced window animations is gone (whatever that was). The option to select a default format for Automatic TiVo Exports is gone. This likely means Toast 12 doesn't support the Automatic exports from the TiVo Transfer application included with Toast 10 and 11 but not included in Toast 12. A Capture preference is added for selecting the location for Web Video Items and Screen Captured Items.

 

Extras menu: Live Video Capture is added for launching that app. Gone are Disc Cover, TiVo Transfer and Get Backup as those apps are no longer included with Toast 12. Also gone are Mac2TiVo and (thankfully) the horribly broken Spin Doctor.

 

I have no way of knowing if Toast 12 has bug fixes compared with the latest update to Toast 11 or if it will be more compatible with the new OS X. The Web Video capture still doesn't work with YouTube so it must only work with some Flash videos as before. I haven't compared disc burn speed as that was not good with Toast 11.1 and 11.2.

 

If you find other differences please add your posts here.

Hi, I've always used Toast 11 to burn my DVD, but when I started to record on blu-ray my HD camcorder movies, I had to switch to another software because Toast Titanium 11 limits the bit rate during the

disc recording at 26 Mbps, while the average bitrate blurays have

is 35 mbps. I'd like to know if the new version (12 Pro) allows you to

record blu ray with the original bitrate.

Thank you very much.

Toast 12 is the same as Toast 11 with a maximum Blu-ray video bit rate of 26 Mbps in either MP-4 or MPEG-2.

  • Does Toast 12 include the TiVo Transfer under Extras? And, if so, does this version of TiVo Transfer communicate with the TiVo Roamio series? I had used Toast 8-9-10-11 and TiVo Transfer successfully with other TiVo models, but when the TiVo Roamio came out the advertising said it was compatible but in practice the Roxio tech support group eventually reported that the Roamio is not supported by the version of TiVo Transfer supplied with Toast 11.

Toast no longer includes TiVo Transfer and it doesn't appear in the Toast 12 Extras menu even if you put your previous copy of TiVo Transfer in the Toast 12 Titanium folder. Toast 12 does see the TiVo Transfer folder in the Media Browser and continues to work with .tivo files in the Video and Convert windows. Go to MacUpdate.com and search for the freeware cTiVo which can take the place of TiVo Transfer and works with Roamios.

Has the "Spin Doctor" application been revised to work as promised, or not?

 

Thanks, Christian

Spin Doctor is dead and gone.
