How To Keep Chapters Markers From Final Cut Pro.

Question

Can it be done from FCP and Compressor , FCP alone.

Well Roxio tel me how because weeks of research have not give me any answer.

Pictures and sound are great with Toast 9.0.2 but getting chapters control is badly needed. :(

Well i am still watching for a way to do it ..... :angry:

Don't be angry -

You can create Chapters in FCP, and export them as part of your QuickTime source movie;

these chapters will be recognized by Toast 9, and placed into the chapter structure of your finished movie.

I've just done this with an HDV movie I used to make a Blu-ray disc, and it works,

BUT - on playback the chapters seemed to appear about 5 seconds BEFORE where thet had been

placed in Final Cut - so perhaps there's something weird about the way the chapters

are processed during encode.

 

I've let Roxio know about this, using their feedback@roxio.com email link.

So i must send a quicktime movie from FCP with chapters markers and let Toast 9 do the encoding.

Why i cant send the movie from FCP with chapters markers to Compressor MPEG2 HD and finaly send to Toast 9 keeping the chapter and avoid re-encoding by Toast 9.

Is the solution posted by dagnome the only workflow possible to maintain the chapters markers done in Final Cut Pro or is it possible to send to compressor for MPEG 2 HD compression and then send the MPEG 2 HD file to Toast 9.0.4 to get the Blu-Ray but with the Final Cut Pro chapters markers still in place.Iwould like to avoid Toast compression if possible. :rolleyes:

No, you cannot use Compressor to encode and avoid Toast recompressing for Blu-ray. You SHOULD be able to, but you can't. I've tried it every which way, and either Toast re-encodes, or screws up the video when it muxes it together with the audio and produces unusable results.

 

This was with Toast 9.02. I have not yet tried with 9.04, but I haven't seen anybody post on here with working results yet.

Thank-you for this answer , so i must conclude the ball is in the Roxio Toast 9 to make it possible and before Apple deliver an upgrade to their iLife and Final Cut Studio suites. :rolleyes:

I am still happy with Toast 9 but this is a serious point to solve by Roxio , getting control on chapters markers is something many users wiil require very soon in parity with DVD they make.
