Editing Created And Saved Dvd/cd Projects

Question

If i have just created a new DVD project with multiple video clips and saved it as <.toast> file on my hard drive, how can I open it again in Toast 11 to be able to edit w/o change in its format - no change to clip names, title of the DVD, etc.? What is the best way to save DVD/CD projects for further editing (as saved) prior to burning in Toast 11?

You cannot edit a .toast file. If you want to create a project for future editing just choose Save from the Toast File menu rather than Save as Disc Image. What you need to do to edit the .toast file is to mount it (there is a command for this in the Toast Utilities menu) and then drag its contents back into a new Toast window where you create a new project.

 

In the future when you create a project file using "Save", make sure you don't move anything in the Finder that was added to that project. Toast is just saving aliases that point to those original files.

Dear Tsantee, so much appreciate the feedback. I am actually still struggling, not sure why...but may be you help more. I think the problem is still there and it can be stated this way.

I have created earlier a project and saved it as <.toast> file. I recall trying to save it as <.disk> but, unfortunately, this option did not work for me, i.e. the size of the saved file was only 30KB and it was just icon and nothing else included. So, the only saving option that worked was <.toast> file option at a time. However, when I wanted to open and edit saved <.toast> file, I had to use "copy" window in Toast and drag and drop the <.toast> file into icon. Then I clicked "mount disk" on the screen and created another file (looking like a disk) that I dragged and dropped into "movie" window option in Toast. That allowed me to open the file. After I opened the file, i have noticed that my clips names have been changed and the title of the disk was changed as well, though all my clips were there. I've changed/edited back the clip names and included old title and then tried to save it both ways, i.e. Save as (file menu) and Save as disk image. Again, "Save as" did not work, i.e. nothing was saved, but disk image did work though it started to multiplex, write, etc., so it took time to redo the whole disk rather than to change clips names only. When I finally opened the new generated <.toast> file using exactly the same method as above, I was again surprised to see that the names of the clips and the disk title are wrong, i.e. the new editing that I have applied did not work for saved disk image. So, what is going wrong?

I saved and burned a DVD-video project, changed the menu theme and tried to burn a new disc. I now get the pop-up message that the disc can't be burned because the volume can't be found. Any idea what has happened? Thanks.

Since you have a burned disc, start a new project in Toast. Insert the burned disc and choose Video>DVD in the Toast Media Browser. There you can add the videos from the burned disc to the main Toast window and can create your new menu. Choose Save as Disc Image. When done burn the resulting .toast file to disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window.
