Rush Videos

Only 98 Movies Or Slideshows Can Be Written.

Question

I film football & the coach asks that I start recording at the beginning of a play and stop at the end of the play. With my Panasonic Ag HMC 150, SDHC cards, this creates around 140 clips per game. Toast 11 tells me,'Only 98 movies or slideshows can be written.", which makes me have to put the game on two separate DVD's, first & second half. Yes i know I could log & transfer in Final Cut Pro and export as one file then burn but the coach watches the game with his team as soon as the game ends. So, time is of the essence here. Any tips or helpful advice appreciated. https://vimeo.com/48806848

The limit on titles is set by the video DVD spec. There are some options you have. If the coach is watching these on a computer rather than on a TV then you can burn them as a data disc instead of as a video DVD. If it must be a video DVD you can see if the Merge Clips function in the Toast Edit menu is active. It only works with a few formats and I'm not certain which those are. I believe you also can use QuickTime Player to join clips by selecting all of one clip and pasting it to the end of another one.

 

Yet another option is to forgo discs entirely. If the coach's TV is a HDTV it may be able to play the clips from your SDHC card using a card reader plugged into a USB port on the TV. This also can be done with a portable hard drive. There also are devices like the Apple TV that can stream video from a computer to a TV.

Digital Guru, thanks for your post as I'm definitely looking for an alternative. I'll address you solutions in order:

 

If the coach is watching these on a computer rather than on a TV then you can burn them as a data disc instead of as a video DVD

The coach shows the DVD following the game that has a projector hooked to a dvd player projected to a pull down screen.

 

If it must be a video DVD you can see if the Merge Clips function in the Toast Edit menu is active.

Never used this option but will definitely check it out, thanks.

 

I believe you also can use QuickTime Player to join clips by selecting all of one clip and pasting it to the end of another one.

Never tried this but will test it as well, thanks.

 

Yet another option is to forgo discs entirely. If the coach's TV is a HDTV it may be able to play the clips from your SDHC card using a card reader plugged into a USB port on the TV. No HDTV as mentioned in first response, not being smart just direct.

 

One thing I do not understand is you stated the is that the limit on titles is set by the dvd spec, but when i'm authoring in DVD Studio Pro I'm able to set as many chapters, links as I want. Is this this the same or something totally different? Also when I try to drop the AVCHD, MTS, clips into Toast 11 under video the 98 limit only calculates to 2.96 GB, which leaves space to be used. I spoke with a data conversion specialist for a different software company & they say its a limit set by Toast. From online searching, it seems this issue has been around quiet awhile. I'll let you know what we decide to do or what I find out from Toast/Corel.

I believe the DVD standard says you can have up to 99 Titles and each Title can have 99 chapters. So what you might be able to do is dive the clips into 2 Title: 1st Half and 2nd Half. You then add the clips from the first half to the first Title and the rest to the second Title.

I have sent Roxio a Tech Support email & they say responses are usually with in 24 hours. I'll post the response I get from Roxio. On a side note Roxio was purchased by Corel in FEB 2012, which is a Windows only company, guess they wanted a shop in the Apple world. Thanks for the post, good information.

Thank you for contacting Corel Customer Support.

 

This is a limitation of the DVD specification itself, not of Toast 11. An option to overcome this limitation is to simply burn the files as Data DVD, instead of a DVD video disc.

 

Another way is to merge your video clips by exporting them to a file (e.g. .mov) and then burning to DVD.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

 

Regards,

Antonio
