DVD from QuickTime with No Audio

Question

Step One: Export Keynote presentation with auto transition settings

for every slide, completely synced with audio, using H.264, Video Size:

1024 x 768, Frames per second: 24. Include audio is checked.

 

Step Two: Drag QuickTime video into Toast 8 DVD window.

 

Step Three: Since presentation was set in Keynote to auto play, the

video and audio begin playing in Toast 8. Everything seems fine.

 

Step Four: Video quality is set to best. Icon for movie in Toast 8

window shows: Video: H.264, 1024 x 768, 18.63 fps. Audio: Movie.

 

Step Five: Since everything seems fine and audio is playing. Burn to

DVD.

 

Step Six: Check finished DVD in Quicktime, VLC, and component DVD

player, no audio.

 

Four useless DVD discs later I need some assistance.

 

Any you can offer would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

There is no audio format called "Movie." So I'll try to find some time to export a Keynote slideshow to see what the audio is on mine. If you used an iTunes download track then that explains the problem as those tracks cannot be used by third-party applications such as Toast. What was the original audio before you used it in Keynote?

It was an iTune track, but I did the make into .aiff and burn onto a

CD thing. And then placed it in Keynote. Prior to doing it this way,

Keynote would not allow it to be exported. But once I did this, it

seemed to export it fine. Although it did make two files:

 

Petra

 

Petra_soundtrack.mov

 

Any suggestions would be welcome.

 

By the way, I noticed your Austin Healey picture. My father had

one of these when I grew-up. I believe it was a 1954, the one

with no hood scoop and an aluminum body. Quite a sweat machine.

Unfortunately, each of the kids had a go at attempting

to destroy. My brother had it restored and he eventually sold

it. Beautiful black with red interior.

 

Nice ...

I have had problems using aiff audio files in toast when doing motion picture slideshows. I've never been able to figure out why. I have had success in converting the audio file to Apple Lossless or MPEG and then it seems to work.

Bill,

I've done some experimenting and so far cannot find a way to get Toast to include the audio from a Keynote QuickTime export. Keynote exports the audio into a separate file that Toast doesn't pick up. After trying several things it seems to me the best option is to use QuickTime Pro to join the video and audio files and add that to Toast. Let me know if you need help with this.

 

Your family's Healey is a model that is highly desired by Healey enthusiasts. Mine is a '58 100-6 which I've owned for 35 years. To me it's always been the perfect British sports car.

I have QT Pro:

 

#1. How did you go about joining the video and audio files together?

 

#2. Since this Keynote presentation is timed synced with the audio and

set to auto-run when opened, the video and audio start as soon as

QT Pro is opened.

 

#3. What would be the best format to export this in? I would like it

to be the very best quality, not matter how large the export file

or how long it takes to export.

 

 

[Then there was the time I rear-ended a car at 5 miles per hour, and

the aluminum body folded into the wheels. So when the clever policeman

on the scene tried to pry it off the wheels with a crow-bar, the

fender simply shredded like a pop can ...]

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

I found the default export settings in Keynote to be curious; at least if you want to create a video DVD. Here's what I suggest.

Choose Custom in the Formats button in the Export window. Click the Settings button next to Video. Set the Frame Rate to 29.97 fps and the key frames at every 15 frames. Click Okay.

 

You can leave the audio setting as it is. Click Next.... Name your exported file and complete the Export.

 

When done, open both of the files created by the export. One is your titled file and the other ends with "_sountrack.mov" which is the audio only. Check to see that they are both the same length in time. (In my test they are not because I used just a few slides and an entire audio track).

 

Select the file that ends with "_soundtrack.mov" in QuickTime Pro. This is the audio only. Choose Select All and then choose Copy.

 

Now select the movie in QuickTime Pro. Choose Select All and choose Add to Selection & Scale from the Edit menu. Your audio is now in the same file as the video. You may also want to choose Show Movie Properties from the Window menu. Scroll down the list of properties until you fine one called "Movie Track." Either uncheck or delete that. I think this is optional since Toast ignored it anyway.

 

Now choose Save As... to create the new copy of the video with sound. Add it to the Toast Video window. You can preview it in Toast by clicking the Edit button next to the title and then the Video tab.

 

I'm glad your dad's Healey got fixed rather than junked.

Hello Again:

 

Thanks for staying with me on this.

 

Latest edition:

 

I did the export from Keynote as you suggested. When I opened the two files in QuickTime Pro the movie file started playing at full-screen, because the is the way I have it set-up in Keynote.

 

I was eventually able to copy all the audio from the 'soundtrack' file and paste it into the movie file. But when I saved this file in QT Pro and opened it and tested it in Toast 8, it played two 'embedded' audio tracks.

One slightly out of sync with the other.

 

So, the saga continues ...

 

Hope this isn't wearying you.

 

I noticed we're both fellow Oregonians.

 

Thanks for your assistance.

Interesting. That means you should uncheck or delete the Movie Track in the Movie Properties window in QT Pro. It also makes me wonder if it would work just to choose Save As... with QuickTime Pro without pasting the audio file into the video file.

Well, it's come down to this, after hours of testing, burning and

experimenting.

 

I exported my presentation out of Keynote as video with, no with no

audio.

 

I spliced together the exact amount of music to match my previous

audio/video 'cues' in the original Keynote presentation (that had

audio).

 

I opened the exported Keynote Video in Q.T. Pro.

 

I opened the spliced audio (.aiff), selected all, and pasted into the

exact selection perimeters in my exported Keynote video.

 

I played it back in Q.T. Pro and it was perfect!

 

I placed the Q.T. Pro file in Toast 8 to make a DVD of the

presentation.

 

The Toast * perimeters read as follows:

 

Video: 720 x 540 29.76 fps

 

Audio: 16 bit stereo, 44100 Hz

 

All, just the way it should be.

 

I pressed edit to view the presentation, and you'll never guess what

happened?

 

The entire audio of the presentation had move up a key in pitch. I

couldn't believe it!

 

Now that seem like a bug to me ...

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

The pitch increase could have happened in QuickTime Pro if the length of the audio file was greater than the length of the video file. So double-check if QuickTime reports those two files as having the identical length. When you choose the scaling paste option in QT Pro it will speed up the audio to make it fit the length of the video if they are different.

 

Alternatively you can just use Paste rather than "Add to Selection & Scale". This will add the audio without changing it, but could result in the audio playing longer than the video.

 

If the audio and video files are identical length, then I'm very puzzled why the audio changed pitch.

Would version 8.0.1 resolve any of the above issues?

 

 

Roxio Sites has this to say about Version 8.0.1 history:

 

"Resolves a number of issues related to audio playback within Toast."

 

Thanks,
