Export From Tivo Transfer W/o Burning Dvd

Question

I want to get .tivo files from the Tivo Transfer folder into iMovie or Final Cut Pro. However, I can't figure out how to do it without burning a DVD first.

 

I don't need DVDs, I simply need to get the .tivo files into a format I can import into iMovie or Final Cut Pro.

Isn't there a way to simply Export the movie clips vs. burning DVDs?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Scott

You need to use the Convert window which is the icon on the top far right. The icons represent the Toast windows in the following order: Data, Audio, Video (where you are at), Copy and Convert. Save as DV.

 

 

Thanks - I'll give it a try. I do appreciate your response.

Ok - so I figured out which is the convert tab, however, I can't figure out which is the DV type.

I see

Apple Hardware

>Apple TV

>iPhone

>Video iPod

 

Video Game Systems

>Play Stations

>Sony PSP

>Xbox

 

Mobile Devices

>BlackBerry

>Palm Treo

>3g Phone

>Stream

 

File Formats

>DivXPlayer

>H.264 Player

>MPEG-4 Player

 

I've tried MPEG-4 and DivX file types, but iMovie will not import them.

 

Thanks,

Scott

That list should show:

 

File Formats

 

>Digital Video (DV)

>DivXPlayer

>H.264 Player

>MPEG-4 Player

>QuickTime Movie

 

I don't know why you'd be missing the DV and QuickTime Movie selections. Maybe you should trash the Toast plist and prefs files from your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunch Toast.

 

The MPEG 4 format you exported does work in iMovie HD. To get it to import to the iMovie that is part of iLife 08 and 09 you'd need to use QuickTime Pro to remove a text track that Toast includes in the file. If you have QuickTime Pro I can tell you how to do that.

I went into the preferences folder and trashed the plist file. Is the preference file something different?

When I relaunched Toast, the file list was the same.

 

I am using iLife09, but don't have Quicktime Pro -

 

I appreciate your efforts in helping me. Do you know if Roxio provides support for their products when they're not working right - in this case, not seeing the proper list of file types I can convert to?

 

Cheers - Scott

 

 

QuickTime Pro to remove a text track that Toast includes in the file. If you have QuickTime Pro I can tell you how to do that.

 

BTW - is there any other freeware or other application that might remove this 'testtrack'?
