Also found this message: "Aperture Library.aplibrary" is in an unsupported format and cannot be imported.

When did that appear? The Aperture Library shows up in the Photos tab of the Toast Media Browser. The browser first shows the iPhoto library. There is a small triangle to the left of the name iPhoto that can be clicked to collapse the iPhoto library. The Aperture library should appear just beneath it. I recall there sometimes being issues with some apps finding those libraries but I'd need to do some research to find what is the cause and the fix. Does the Media Browser show your iTunes library in the Music tab and the iMovie projects in the Video tab?

 

I just re-read your original post. You're trying to burn Aperture slideshows, not photos. In that case you need to export (or share) the slideshow from Aperture so it gets rendered as a QuickTime movie. After it is exported it can be added to Toast.

Tsantee,

 

Thanks for trying to help. Roxio support just advised me that Toast 11 Pro is not compatible with the latest OS X Operating System. They advised that is the reason my Aperture Library is not showing up. They have not come out with a patch to fix it yet.

Tsantee,

That's totally wrong! Toast 11 Pro was recently rewritten to make it fully compatible with the latest Mac OS and that's how I'm using it. The only thing that is not compatible is Spin Doctor which didn't work in earlier OS versions either.

 

I'm confused by what you are trying to do. The Aperture library should be showing up in the photos tab of the Toast Media Browser. But it won't show the slide shows which have to be exported from within Aperture before they can be added to Toast.

 

Did you get that wrong information from Roxio over the phone of via email? If it is the latter I'd love to see that message. I can't imagine why you would be told something like that.

My aperture library is not showing up. I know where it is supposed to be, it's not. No pictures, no slideshows, no aperture. The only thing that shows up is iPhoto. Roxie support spent a day and a half emailing me trying to change all kinds of settings to get the aperture library to show up. It never did. I got fed up, contacted a supervisor, he reviewed the emails and he told me on the phone it's not compatible with the latest OS X. All I wanted to do was create new slideshows within my aperture library, export them, and burn them to a DVD. Sorry for the long answer. Maybe I wasn't clear earlier. I was frustrated though. And if Roxio support gave me incorrect advice, I will be even more frustrated.

I may be eating some crow here. While the Aperture library appears in the Media Browser on my Mac running OS 10.8.3, none of the photos appear in the Toast Media Browser. Oddly, the browser does show videos that are in the Aperture library but not photos. It shows the projects list but nothing but videos are there. This isn't a issue with my Mac running OS 10.7.x. I need to look into this a little more.

 

Meanwhile, the workaround is you have to export the photos and slideshows from within Aperture that you want to add to Toast rather than use the Media Browser. As for the slideshow, when in the slideshow view in Aperture click the Export button near the top right. Choose the Apple TV preset if you are making a standard definition DVD or choose one of the HD settings if you are making a Blu-ray video disc.

 

Yours is the first post I recall that has raised this issue. If this is a failure with Toast 11 then please use the link for reporting bugs that I posted near the top of this forum.

 

Addendum: only the videos are showing in the Media Browser in Apple's Pages and Keynote, too. So there is something else going on that isn't related to Toast as far as my Mac goes. More troubleshooting to do.

Found a solution to my problem. There is a conflict in the iLifeMediaBrowser>Plugins folder in the root Library. My plugins folder had three different Aperture-related plugins. I removed all but iLMBAperturePlugin.ilmbplugin . Then I opened Aperture and selected Photos in the left panel and chose Delete Previews for Library from the Photos menu. Then I chose Update Previews for Library from the Photos menu. This updated the information in the Media Browser. I then Quit Aperture and opened Toast and the Aperture Library, projects and photos all were present.

 

One more thing is that "Share Previews with iLife and iWork should be set to Always in the Previews panel of Aperture Preferences.

 

So I return to my previous statement that Toast 11.1 can see the Aperture library in the media browser with the latest OS version.
