Compilation Dvd's Made With Toast Don't Play Smoothly

Question

Toast DVD's that are made up of two or more video files (see screenshot) don't play smoothly.

At the end of every video file, the picture freezes for a brief moment while the counter of the DVD player jumps to 00:00, before the next file is played.

 

It looks like Toast is putting those clips into separate VOB sets/Title sets and having to jump from VOB state to VMGR state and back to VOB state.

 

It would be nice if Roxio fixed this problem.

Differing titles are always in individual VOB title sets. It is common for DVD players to briefly pause as they search for and load the next title. It is the player that keeps the last displayed video frame on the screen until it starts the next title. The alternative is to join the videos together in a single title and place chapter marks at the start of each scene. Toast allows custom setting of chapter markers. However, Toast does not support text description of chapters. There are some authoring applications that do support chapter descriptions so that a person can browse through the chapter window and read what the chapters represent. Of course it means the viewer has to enter the chapter window before starting the movie at the point they want it to begin.

I have tried joining the videos together in a single file. This solves the problem stated above but creates another problem: The thumbnails you get with the chapter marks you set at the start of each scene don't match with the thumbnails you get. Also, like Digital Guru notices, Toast does not support text description of chapters.

 

Other authoring applications definitely do a better job on this. Too bad. To use these I have to run Windows.

I realize I'm about to suggest a poor option, but you could have the DVD with one title containing everything joined and playing sequentially, and also have the individual titles so viewers can select just one if they like. In this case I'd disable continuous play so the DVD always returned to the menu when a title was completed.
