Toast Can't Multiplex And Burn M2V Files

Question

Just when I thought things were mostly fixed, a new strange phenomenon has developed. I have created m2v and AC3 files in compressor (no exotic bit rates- just your standard 90 minutes best quality). This morning I brought several of these files (which are located on an external hard drive) into Toast 11.0.2 and everything went well. The next disc not so well. I brought in new files and it quit multiplexing about 15% of the way in. I shut down the computer, rebooted and things worked again (I rebuilt the project from scratch.) I tried a third project and again it quit during multiplexing. I thought it might have something to do with the external HD, so I copied the files to the main drive where Toast is installed. Still no joy. I know that the files are not corrupted since I took the same files into DVD Studio Pro and was able to burn a perfect disc there. I also took the Video TS folder generated in DVDSP and was able to burn that in Toaat 11.0.2. I then tried another project. In a couple of the earlier works, I edited the video and was wondering if that was causing the problem. In the last project, only editing was done on menu. My gut feeling is that editing video is screwing things up. I know that's a lot of variables but has anybody else encountered this new weird behavior?

Did you edit the .m2v video in Toast? If so, that possibly changed the video stream's length but not that of the .ac3 audio stream. If that is the case then you'd need to save the entire project as a disc image and then add the multiplexed video from the disc image for editing and export of your final version.

I added both the m2v and associated ac3 file to the project pane. Then I clicked on the edit button and shortened the movie after both files had been added. I'm wondering if you're right in that it is only shortening the video and not the audio portion. I suppose if I had added the original quicktime movie, edited it, and then encoded it to m2v &ac3 the error wouldn't have occurred.

I did an experiment. After adding both m2v and ac3 files, I clicked on edit and shortened the movie. As expected, multiplexing aborted. I then clicked edit, and restored missing video. Hit burn and everything worked properly. Live and learn.
