Unfortunately the video DVD spec is for a maximum 99 titles and a maximum 99 chapters in each title. Toast does one fewer than the maximum. When you say scenes I'm not sure if you're referring to titles or what Toast calls scenes (which I call chapters). Assuming it is the latter then the solution is to break your video into two different titles which then allows for 198 total scenes. If you're referring to titles then the solution is to either make two different discs or to join some of your titles.

 

If possible, another option is not to make a video DVD but instead burn a data disc with all the plays that can be viewed on a computer screen. Or copy them to a flash drive if you have a HDTV with a USB input.

Thanks for your response. I'm importing via a card reader, Toast automatically imports each play separately. The game I did last Friday had a total time of approximately 45min, there was 165 plays. I don't " roll " in between plays. Is there a way to get all the plays on one DVD ? Is there a way to import the entire 45min as one scene. Thanks again.

This probably means they are showing up as titles in the Toast window. Something to try is clicking the select multiple titles in the Toast window and then choose Merge Clips... from the Toast Edit window. If that option is greyed out then the videos are in a format in which Toast doesn't support that feature. If it does support it you can use it to reduce the total number of titles to fewer than 98. I believe the point at which the clips merge will automatically be made into a chapter marker.

 

If Merge Clips... is greyed out then you need to use some other application to join the segments. One option is to import the videos into iMovie and join them there. A drawback is that when done you need to "Share" the finished movie in iMovie to "Media Browser" so that you can use Toast's media browser to add the movie to the main Toast window (which takes some time).

 

A faster way is to open a clip in QuickTime Player and then choose "Add Clip to the End" from the Edit menu. In a moment a window opens asking you to select the clip from the Finder to add. Keep doing this for how many clips you want joined. When done choose Export to save the new joined video to add to Toast.

 

Is there a merge clips option in the video camera itself?

Thanks again. I ended up doing it in real time by down converting from the camera to an external standalone burner, I had bought Toast to avoid this. I'll try some of your suggestions above when I have more time. Unfortunately the coaches wanted the footage and I had to get it to them before ...

As of now I am very disappointed in Toast

It isn't Toast's fault. It is the video DVD spec. Using a standalone recorder is actually a very good approach to joining the clips and saved you a lot of time. Good work!

I film football as well and use a camera that uses SDHC card. Digital Guru is correct, a single layer dvd by the manufacturer only has 99 tittles/chapters allowed. Basically each time you hit record then stop recording that creates a title/chapter or a clip as we'd call it. We use Toast Titanium 11 at our games as well. There are a few options, one is to record two plays at a time which would decrease the number of clips/titles you have, that'd allow you to burn a complete game to one dvd. Second option is to burn two separate dvd's, one for first half and one for second half. Once first half is over, insert your card, drag clips from card to desktop then burn in toast, usually takes about ten minutes. Once second half is over repeat process. A friend of mine does stand alone dvd burner from cam but lost power once and that killed his stand alone dvd recorder. There's other options available but to many to type here. Your welcome to call me direct at my office as this is what we do full time at Rush Videos. Gary Rush 205-621-3787
