Selective Archiving Of Avchd Files In Toast 10?


Jeff in Tallahassee

Question

I have a new Canon HF11 AVCHD camcorder (w 32 GB flash storage), and just bought Toast 10 Pro w/ Blu-ray plug in. I would like to archive some of the clips from the camcorder onto DVDs, but not all. When I go to Video > AVCHD Archive it says I need, say, 6 discs (DVDs) to backup the 22 GB.

 

Not all of the clips are good, and I can see having boxes of discs before long. Also, I would like to group the discs somehow. On the camera now are 3 "projects". Is it possible to do this in Toast 10? Thanks, Jeff

Unfortunately I don't have an AVCHD camcorder so am not able to test out that function in Toast. One possibility may be to choose Save as Disc Image. When that is done you could mount the disc image and drag the ones you want to the Mac or Mac & PC format in the Data window to burn to multiple DVDs.

 

You also might use the AVCHD setting in the Toast Media Browser to extract only the clips you want. Those (I believe) get written to the Roxio Converted Items folder from which you could drag them to the Data window.

Hi and thanks for your suggestion -- it worked perfectly!

 

Just opened the Toast media browser, clicked on AVCHD, the thumbnails from all clips popped up, dragged the ones I wanted into Toast Video > AVCHD Archive, selected DVD and hit burn; very easy. Now I have one DVD to archive with the files I think I might conceivably want again someday. Jeff

Thanks for letting me know how you got it to work the way you want. This could be a help to others.

Hi,

 

I just found this Q&A as I have the same issue. You were able to get this to work but I can't figure it out yet. i am new to Toast. I have my Sony AVCHD camcorder connected and in the Video>AVCHD Archive screen, I open the browser and select AVCHD. The thumbnails pop up and I select the ones I want, but when I drag them to the space in AVCHD archive, it changes to DVD-video. In the AVCHD archive screen, it acts as if it will archive the entire camcorder which I am trying to avoid. Any suggestions?
