Hi, i'm new here, just purchased Toast 19 Pro, i'm coming from Encore, and i need to create a Blu-ray disc, i have the following questions:

1. On Blu-ray can you add an intro video?

2. Does it support 5.1 Dolby Digital?

3. Can you make menus over the playing video like on Encore?

thanks

1-You can add a separate video, make it the first one in the list and select autoplay on insert and it will play. There is no real Intro video feature

2- yes it does support 5.1 AC-3 Dolby Digital as far as I know.. I know for sure that Toast 18 does.

3- No video backgrounds like you could on Encore or iDVD. playing behind the menus.

how about animated menus? and thanks for replying

Nope! This is why I wish Apple had rewritten iDVD for blurays and 5.1.  Toast will let you add movies, add basic static menus and burn discs.

So I installed toast 19 in Big Sur 11.1 and it wouldn't start. I had toast 18 installed.  Used Clean my Mac to remove all remnants of 18 and then rebooted and installed Toast 19 and it starts up just fine but I hate the new interface and it doesn't seem like there's any way to have it default to the old interface.

Also, before doing this I went into Libary/Application Support/Roxit/ menus and copied the folder with my custom menus to a new drive.  AFter installing I copied the menu's I modified into the new Toast 19 menus folder and wrote over the Toast 19 menus with the same name and they work just fine.

I'm New to Toast Titanium 19, Matt Caz or anyone else.... is there ANY WAY to customize Menus? It seems like Rozio changed the file format for menus to ****.dmsd, and cannot open with PhotoShop.

 

Grrrrr...

I am shocked at Toast 19 Pro in 2021.

I wish we could just pay Adobe to revive Encore properly.


For 100 bucks in 2021 I’m shocked. Come on Toast! Really.. Why don’t you care? Have you even looked at your own forums?

I’m here writing this as I try to create an iso / .toast to burn and the encode times are outlandish.

128gb ram / media on M.2 / w9100 16gb

I thought it was my burner until I noticed it did everything right outside of Toast. Pioneer 206D

So what are we getting with Toast Pro in 2021?

No custom menu options? When the hell..

19 iterations and I have to “turn off” advertising within the “pro” UI?

UI mislabeled as Burning disc instead of encoding?

why is encoding so slow? These formats have been around for 20+ years.

why are the “pro” menu template designs like circa 1992?

why are we using work-around methods to burn when the function should just work? Right?

I hope people use your auxiliary programs but I’ve always used Adobe.

Why can’t Toast be your priority? I don’t want the other programs. Just a working Toast, why can’t ya’ll be kick butt. 

This is the fourth straight purchase of Toast I’ve made since v6. What have you developers done with our money? Not very much!!!

This “encoding” (Burning disc?) who knows.. has been stalled at 63% for 45 minutes. I could have encoded every asset in best quality with any other program! Anything! My phone could have done this already twice at least. This is constant, I’ve been trying to burn your menu out for days and get junk discs. They just load with a black screen and neither the intro video or menu catches. You have no documentation of this, no foresight into your own product. I don’t want a phone call I want this to work after decades of Toast iterations!

It takes so long I thought to actually do a test DVD so I don’t waste any more BR / DVDDL media.. in looking up the issue again, I found this thread and wrote this, while I waited to create an iso / .toast.

Dude why is this mislabeled encoding taking so long? Is this 1992?

Not the forums, tech help or user guide can help here. The issue I am having is your aged and mismanaged product sitting rancid for purchase, Toast 19 Pro.
