Toast Titanium 11 Pro

Question

Hi, Can someone comment please on whether I can combine slide shows with music using Toast Titanium 11 Pro? Would it still work with my iMac? Thanks.

I don't know what you are trying to create. Are you wanting to make a video DVD from your slide shows? Are you wanting Toast to create the slide shows or did you create them with something else? When you ask if it will still work with your iMac, I don't understand why you think it might not work. I'm in a fog.

 

If you want Toast to create a slide show it does not have an option to include audio, so the slide show with audio needs to be created before adding to Toast. The joining probably can be done with QuickTime Player before adding to Toast.

Hi All,

 

I have a long history with video, but never dealt with Blu-Ray before. Got any help for the noob? I need to make a blu-ray compilation of short films for an international short film festival. The short films are all in h.264 at 16x9 1920x1080 but they are all at different frame rates.

 

I would like to convert everything to have the optimum format for projection from blu-ray disc using Toast 11 pro.

 

1) What would you suggest for the best frame target frame rate I should convert the files to prior to making the Blu-Ray DVD?

 

2) What type of files (of the short films) should I make to send to Toast 11 pro?

 

Here are my tools:

Mac 8-Core Snow Leopard

Compresssor

MPEG Streamclip

Final Cut Pro Studio 7

Samsung Blu-Ray Writer

 

Thanks in advance for your thoughtful responses

I'm pretty sure Toast will make them all 30 fps (or maybe 29.97 fps) when it does the encoding for the Blu-ray disc. You can choose MPEG-4 or MPEG-2 encoding and I'd choose the MPEG-4. The best thing to do is experiment a little. You can choose Save as Disc Image and play the mounted disc image file using Roxio Video Player. I don't think it will matter to convert the videos before adding to Toast, but that's one of the things about which you can experiment.
