Chapters on media exported from FCPX

Recommended Posts

So just installed Toast 19 Pro as I'd like to make DVD and BluRay discs.

I want chapters to work so that viewers can use next/previous track buttons to skip between scenes/chapters

First problem is that Although Toast seems to know that the video has several chapters, it's not actually importing them. Or if it is, then it's not making them skppable.

Must be something really simple!

Any clues?

ANSWER: Chapter Management in Toast is a bit rubbish, and you just have to enter them manually.

after FCPX you have to use Compressor, to prepare the image of the DVD or the BD, and then you burn it with Toast. My DVDs and BDs perform the skip option you wish.

Sorry, I forgot to say that I did use compressor. However, I didn't use Compressor to actually burn the disc. Can it do Blu-Ray? Beginning to wonder what value Toast adds in that scenario!

I have used Compressor to prepare the image of either the dvd or the bd, then I use Toast to burn. I did not tried other apps. I know many alternatives, but I had no time nor will to try them. A simple idea: do your experiments with re-recordable discs: it's less expensive 😉
