It depends on your video source. In many cases you click the Edit button next to the video title. In the window that appears you'll either see a "Video" tab or another "Edit" button. The former immediately shows a timeline of the video with the opportunity to place markers where you want segments excluded. The latter opens the Toast Video Player which also has such a timeline. If neither of these appear let me know more specifics about the source for your videos and what settings you are using in Toast.

Correct. The segments you create with the markers are excluded from the disc or export.

 

Got a question on editing Tivo Video transfers. I use the procedure you outlined above, and about half the time, it works perfectly (I'm using the "fine" editing option, so I can go frame by frame). Typically the programs are sports, and run 2 to 4 hours before editing. Anyway, my issue is about half the time, usually deep into the project, the film strip turns gray, the spinning beach ball appears, and I have to use force quit (letting it spin for hours doesn't work, I tried).

 

Is there a work around that would solve this problem? Are there other video editing programs that I could port the Tivo transfer to and use to edit the programs?

 

Thanks in advance,

Scott

I haven't experienced that problem. I'm wondering if you might have defective RAM in your Mac. As for an alternative you could use TiVO Decoder to make the video a regular MPEG 2 file and edit with MPEG Streamclip.

Thanks for the tips. Where do I find TIVO Decoder? Also, is there a simple way to test RAM?

 

I'll be able to rule out (or in) hardware issues soon, as I'm getting a new Mac Pro, and will try and work with the same videos. My current machine is pretty new though (late 2009 iMac, Core i7 chip, 8 GB RAM), so we'll see.

Go to macupdate.com and search for TiVo Decoder and for Rember.

Thanks again. And in an update of my TIVO editing problems, I went back and unchecked the "fine" editing option, and the program didn't crash (freeze up) when I went through the timeline (and in particular the section that caused it to crash). So I skip past the problem spot, then switch "fine" back on, so I can edit properly. So I have an inelegant workaround for now, until I investigate the other options you presented me

My Toast 10 is writing the videos with the correct portions removed (with the markers), BUT it is leaving the original frame (which was edited out) as the icon in the new DVD menu. Any way to avoid this?

Click on that image in the Toast Video window. You'll see a scroll bar appear beneath the thumbnail image. Drag it to select a different button image.
