Advice Needed On Toast 10 Dvd Encoding Speed Please.



I've not used Toast for years, instead I've been using Nero (GASP!) in Windows via Boot Camp. I'm tempted to buy Toast 10 as I really don't like having to use Windows for anything if I don't have to.


My question is this: can anyone give me a rough estimate as to how long it would take to encode a 2 hour long movie (for example) into a standard DVD (you know, one that will play on any DVD player)? I've used a previous version of Toast (can't remember what version now sorry) with the same Mac about three years ago but I found it to be painfully slow...I don't want to shell out for something that's going to take forever with my Mac!


I have a 2.16ghz Core 2 Duo iMac with 3gb RAM and Mac OS X 10.6.4.


Thanks in advance!

It depends on what format and resolution is the source video. If you provide the specs of what you need to convert for video DVD I can do a test. Also, you can buy Toast as a download from Roxio and there is a 30-day refund policy if you aren't satisfied with it. My guess is the encoding will be a little longer than real time but that's just a wild guess.
