Extracting Clips From 1 Video File

Question

Hi. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on how to extract clips from 1 video file. I watched the tutorial and it looks straightforward. However, after I put the markers in and click the big red button, all i get is just one file instead of the files i've marked. What i need is for the marked files to be exported into separate files.

 

I only see the Record button and not the Extract Button as mentioned in http://kb.roxio.com/search.aspx?URL=/content/000079TT&PARAMS=set-locale=en

 

The video I'm trying to edit is not copyrighted.

 

much thanks!

I've used Toast for years and those instructions you linked to are not right.

 

Assuming you used the Media Browser to access content from a DVD or VIDEO_TS folder, you can access entire titles or chapters within titles in the Media Browser window. Each item you select in the browser window is then "extracted" when you add it to the main Toast window. There is no extract button.

 

Once you have extracted the video from the Media Browser you can select each item and do some editing. The editing is actually trimming. Unlike the description in the instructions you linked to, the segments between the markers you place in the editor are what you want to exclude from the final product. You cannot, however, use the editor to break a video into multiple pieces. You only can remove parts from the whole. You'll still have one video; only shorter.

 

If your goal is to split a video into multiple pieces – and those pieces don't coincide with extracting individual chapters – then you have more work to do. One option is to convert the video using the AppleTV setting in the Convert window and then use QuickTime (if you're running Snow Leopard) to make multiple trimmed versions. Then add those versions to Toast if you're wanting to create a new video DVD from them. There are other ways, too, but they all require multiple steps.
