Whoa! 10.0.7 on a PPC Does Chapters!

Question

Well, I hope I'm not dreaming, but I was using 10.0.2 on my properly configured PPC G5 with Leopard to burn an imovie file (saved as disc image) and I decided that I would once again see if the latest version (10.0.7) would work. So I deleted the imovie file, deleted the toast 10.0.2 version of the encoded file along with the disc image and started from scratch with the same avi file in imovie, created three chapters in imovie, saved the file as dv. Opened toast 10.0.7, selected video tab, dvd-video button, dragged the imovie file into the toast window, (toast lists the file as an mpeg-2 dolby digital file) selected include scene menus for video under the more, menus button, and clicked on save as disc image. Once the file was created, I opened DVD player and whata ya know, the chapter markers that I created in imovie were there!!

 

How about that!!!

 

Now I have done this three separate times and its' worked each time!!

 

Can anyone else verify this?

 

Remember, you need to be using a properly configured PM G4/5 with leopard, and toast 10.0.7.

 

Hope it is actually fixed for all.

Hmmm. I can confirm this does NOT work for me. I get chapters every 5 minutes, or whatever the duration, but no text showing chapter names and no use of chapters as assigned in iMovie. I've been passing my movies to Toast in AIC format. Perhaps your luck is a result of feeding Toast an mpeg-2 movie. Did Toast need to encode this movie or did it go directly to multiplexing?
