Extract And Convert


see_em
 Share

Question

I just received the disc version of Toast 10, which I purchased specifically for the extract clip and convert feature highlighted on the Roxio web site. (extract a short clip from an unprotected DVD and convert to QuickTime, for example, or other formats). However, there are no instructions for this feature in the pdf manual. There is an extract button when you drag the Video TS folder to the convert area, and this opens Toast Video Player with trim tools when clicked, but there is no guidance on how to move from selecting the clip to converting it to a file. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm having the same problem. I bought Toast 10 specifically for this advertised feature, and there's no mention of it in the documentation.

When I open an unprotected VIDEO_TS folder in the Convert window, I don't even see the Extract button that see_em mentioned.

How does one edit and convert the video in an unprotected VIDEO_TS folder?

Here's how to do this with a VIDEO_TS folder:

1. Choose Video Files as the setting in the Convert window. Do not choose the VIDEO_TS folder option when you want to do editing.

2. Drag the VIDEO_TS folder to the Video window. You will see the individual video titles appear in the window.

3. Click the Extract button next to a title you want to edit. This launches the Toast Video Player which also is the editor.

4. To edit click the marker at the bottom of the player window where you want the edit to begin. Then drag the right half of that marker to where you want the edit to end. You can place multiple markers. The default is for the area marked to be what Toast won't include in the converted video. If you want the portion that's within the markers (the yellow part) to be what Toast does convert then you'll need to click the Gear button and choose Invert markers.

5. When you're done setting the markers choose Save and close the edit window. Toast does not modify the source video file. It just knows which segments you've marked that you want to convert.

6. Click the big red button to enter the Convert actions.

Thanks to Eugene, Oregon. This does do the trick. I am puzzled, from a customer service and marketing angle, that Roxio would include no documentation for this feature, and I wonder if I am still missing something (are there shortcuts within Video Player? What does the "Fine" check box mean?) But thanks again.

This may be what I need to do. I have a slide show of photos that I want to extract from a VS Folder. I've done 1,2,3 and et the Toast Video Player. Each photo occupies 4 frames. Is there a way to mark an individual frame? I can "copy" the frame, but where do I "paste"? Where is the"convert" button? I hope my reply isn't as muddled as it seems

If I'm understanding you correctly it seems like you want to extract a clip from a mounted Video TS_Folder (unprotected DVD) and convert it to a video type such as one playable on your ipod. If so here is what i do. First launch Toast and choose the Convert tab and then select the Video Files format. Toast will recognize a mounted Video TS_Folder if it is placed on the desktop (From the movie folder you would simply drag the Video TS_Folder to the desktop). Select the DVD option from the toast media browser, you should see a disc icon. Double click the the disc icon which will then show all of the chapters on the selected Video TS_Folder. Simply drag and drop the chapters you select into the selected Video Files project window. You can edit the clips in the Toast Video Player window by selecting the Edit button on the video file or merge clips together as one by selecting Merge Clips from the Edit menu. Click the red button and then choose a device to convert the file to (there are several options to convert to such as PS3 and H.264 and other quicktime formats). I hope this helps. Good Luck!

DVD slide shows are different from normal video DVDs. To extract individual frames from a DVD slide show as JPEG files you need to use MPEG Streamclip. Open the VIDEO_TS folder or non-encrypted DVD is Streamclip. Choose one of the titles if multiple titles are present. If asked to repair timecode breaks click Fix Now. Drag the slider to a frame you want to export and choose Export Frame from the File menu. Set the quality slider to a high level and complete the export. Scroll to a frame with a different image and repeat until done.

benndogg,

Your process is how I've done this up until Toast 10. It appears to me that you now can drag the VIDEO_TS folder directly to the Convert window with Video Files selected as the format without having to extract the video using the Media Browser. You still need to use the Media Browser if you only want to select specific chapters, though.

How do I handle slide shows? When I click "save", nothing seems to happen

When using Extract and Convert, does anyone know if this process lets you create a file that can contain multiple audio tracks and also subtitles tracks? Ideally, this would be an mkv file or possibly an avi or mp4 file that contains several audio streams and soft encoded subtitles. Does Toast do this sort of thing?

Slideshows are different. I addressed this in my previous post.

I haven't checked this but my presumption is it is the same as previous versions where you can choose one specific audio track and subtitles are not included.
