Converting Dvd To Qt Doesn't Convert The Whole Movie

Question

Hey!

 

So I am trying to convert a DVD into a quicktime mov (I have the proper licensing, nothing illegal here, I work at a post house) and it only creates a .mov of the first 14 seconds and then decides it's done. I've done this before with tons of show DVDs so I know it's possible. Is there some magical setting I'm missing?

 

Thanks!

There's no setting. Toast is stopping at a break in the video. Instead of using Toast you can use MPEG Streamclip which has a feature to "Fix Timecode Breaks." If you want commercial software then I recommend Cinematize for this. Toast usually will work but there are times it won't.

 

I did just think of one possible workaround. Choose Video Files as the setting in the Toast Copy window. Insert your DVD or place the VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop or in the Movies folder. In the Toast Media Browser choose Video and then DVD. There you'll see the video titles on your DVD. Drag what you want to the main Toast window. A window will open giving you the option to mark a segment of the video but you don't need to do anything there if you want all of it. Toast might convert that video.
