Toast 11: 2 Problems

Question

Hello,

 

I'm having two problems with a .ts file I'm trying to use for a blu-ray project:

 

1. If I import the .ts file into the blu-ray window, it's very difficult to mark chapters because the scrub function is slow, quirky, and the project eventually crashes.

 

2. If I try to convert the .ts file for use in my iMovie editing program for eventual use with Toast, it completes at about 31 minutes, even though the video is about 120 minutes.

 

I've checked the Toast preferences for possible settings options and found nothing that would help. I've also been sure to use the media browser to import my .ts file into Toast, and it doesn't seem to matter.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

My guess is the video has timecode breaks that are causing some reading problems. I recommend getting MPEG Streamclip (free) and Apple's QuickTime MPEG 2 Component ($20) and using Streamclip to repair any timecode breaks. Then save the resulting video as a mpeg file for use in Toast.

The timecode breaks occurred to me, too, but my MPEG Streamclip w/MPEG 2 Component wouldn't open it. It seems, though, that there was something wrong with that file because I downloaded another .ts file and it opened fine.

 

Oddly, the questionable file imports right into the Toast blu-ray window and shows up in full, but the editing is buggy as earlier explained. Perhaps this is also due to an error in the file.

 

Oh, well, can't win 'em all.

 

Thanks for the response.

...

I always get MPEG Streamclip complaining about TS files from my PVR. If I click on "Open Anyway", they in fact open without any problem. YMMV.
