Chapter Marker Titles

Question

How can I get the chapter markers that I designate in a FCP 10 movie I've created to transfer to Toast with their actual titles? Its giving them numbers once in toast and we can't figure out how to change the numbers back to txt. Hope that makes sense.

Toast doesn't have means to name chapters. Users have wanted that for many versions, but so far that is not included.

You could add multiple clips as named titles, but that's probably not what you want.

Jeeze, this should be a no-brainer. I've heard lots of people recommend Toast as a possible replacement for DVD Studio pro on the Mac. How can even the most basic of DVD "authoring" programs not provide a way to name chapters in the menu. I'm glad I got Toast as part of a software bundle. It is not (yet) worth the $100 it would cost retail, without this chapter capability. There are plenty of low cost options that are as featureless as the disc creation of Toast. It looks great in many ways, but not worth the cost to me. I might as well stick with the DVD burning output of Final Cut pro or Compressor. At least it will name my chapters correctly from my video edit timeline.

AGREED! I used to use Nero on my windows computers and it has been faithful for the 10 years I've used it. I upgraded to a Mac recently, bought an external Blu Ray writer, converted all my film files and bought Roxio Toast for full price. After pulling my hair out and being stressed so much, I find out that even the most basic things such as:

 

- Making a background menu, adding the audio to it to fit.

- Naming chapter menus

- Selecting the font, style and colour of chapter titles.

- Choosing whether you want thumbnails, text only chapters or ones with a certain style.

 

All of these BASIC functions are not enabled for Toast....why?

 

Aren't there ANY blu ray burning software packages out there for Mac users to use?

 

I have spent years worth of work, time and effort on making my films only to not be able to simply burn them onto Blu Ray in the form I wish to see them in.

 

HELP?!
