Is Toast 7 Good?


audiopostproduction

Question

I have Toast 6.x and beyond burning data discs, have been disappointed with the purchase. When I bought it I needed to output a good quality DVD video disc,... bad at that time (6.03 or so) the Hi Quality setting created all sorts of flicker. Then there was a version that created a green vertical boarder along one side of the screen... Finally now, any FCP or FCE file (DV/DVCPRO - NTSC, 720 x 480) has the appearance of letter box with a screwed up aspect ratio. Seems like I often resorted to iDVD. I like some of the possible features of 7,... when and if you can decipher them from the 'lacking in detail' literature. Is the upgrade worth it? Or am I going to regret it?

Toast 7 has the Mainconcept MPEG encoder which is very highly regarded. You also have the option for manual control of the encoder settings including bit rate, 16:9 or 4:3, AC3 bit rate and more. I find Toast 7 to be far superior to Toast 6.
