Yes it's possible in a couple ways. I'm presuming you want the disc to play on video DVD players. There is help on this in Toast Help, by the way.

 

Set up the movie the way you want in Toast's Video window. Now go to the Data window and choose DVD-Rom (UDF) as the format. Click New Disc and name the disc the same as you named the disc in the Video window. Add your data content. Go back to the Video window and click the More button. Click the Disc tab and check the box next to "Add data content." Now you're ready to burn your disc. (Note: if you choose Save as Disc Image and then use the Image File setting in the Copy window to burn the disc, only the video portion will be burned and the data content will be missing on the disc).

 

The other way is to set up the video project as you want and choose Save as Disc Image. When that is finished mount the disc image in the Finder. Go to the Toast Data window and select DVD-Rom (UDF) as the disc type and click New Disc. Name the disc. Now drag in the VIDEO_TS folder from the mounted disc image as well as any data content. You're ready to burn your disc.

This is great!! The finished product will be played in both DVD players and computers. Does that change the process? Again, thank you!!

Next question. Is there a way to get the text files onto the main menu? In a perfect world...I would be able to see the movies/segments as well as the text files on the menu screens. I hope that makes sense.

The data content (your text files) can only be seen by a computer. They can't be part of the video or its menus. In response to your previous post the video portion will play in both computers and DVD players.
