Toast Video Player

Question

When I select 'edit' on a clip in Toast 10, It calls the video player to use to edit. Within 10 seconds the player crashes, and askes if I want to send a report to Apple. It worked at first but has become inoperable. I have even downloaded and reinstalled, no help.

 

Mac ppc G5, os x 10.5.8, 6 gb ram, plenty storage.

 

any help?

 

thanks,

Frank Clapp

How was the MPEG 2 video added to Toast? If you have an earlier version of Toast 10 (preferably 10.0.2) give that a try because the current version doesn't work well with PowerPC Macs for video projects.

 

 

i dragged the Video_TS from a dvd recording into the Toast Titanium window. However, I have been successful a couple times, and failed again. Strange.

 

I don't have 10.0.2, just bought Toast Titanium 10 which was 10.0.8. I think I am running into the "don't fix G5 problems, just Intel". Guess I can't blame them.

 

I also get an occasional stutter, small incident of skipping over a small piece of the video.

 

iMovie skips every other line making poor quality. If I use it and share it with iDVD, I get no sound. The discussions said Toast was the answer, but it is unreliable.

 

What's a person to do, old version of Final Cut Studio? Amazon has one for G5, but it is also not supported any more.

 

Thanks for you answer.

Give this a try: Instead of dragging the VIDEO_TS folder into the Toast Video window, choose DVD with the top button of the Toast Media Browser. Toast will automatically find the VIDEO_TS folder if it is on the desktop or in the Movies folder. Double click on what appears in the Media Browser to see the individual video titles. Drag what you want to the Video window. Toast will extract the video from the VIDEO_TS and write it in the Roxio Converted Items folder.

 

You can now try to do the edit in the Toast Video Player (by clicking Edit next to the title and clicking Edit again in the window that appears). If that still crashes the player, delete the video from the Toast window. Go to the Roxio Converted Items folder in your Documents folder. Change the extension of the extracted video from .vob to .mpg. Now drag that file to the Toast window and try the editor again.

A tip of my hat to you! Your suggestion worked. I also may have found what caused the problem in the first place. I had changed preferences to not delete converted items. There were LOTS of files in there from my attempts. After I did your mpg trick, I deleted all items and tried the regular route of the media browser. That also worked. I may have just contributed to a big traffic jam.

 

Thanks a lot for your time.

I'm going to try to sneak another question in as long as I have your attention: When I go out of toaster after editing it asks if I want to save the edited file. I reply yes. I thought I would be able to reopen it in toast for further editing, says it is an unsupported format and cannot be added. Is there anything you can tell me about additional editting after I leave Toast?

 

Sorry, it works as it should with a different edited file. I've obviously done something different with the first. I will work it out
