Making A Dvd With Menu



Wow....first time using Toast 11 to make a standard DVD from a Quicktime .mov file. I can't seem to get the steps down correctly to do what I want it to do....that, or it's buggy. Let me share with you guys what I have and what I'm doing.


I have a local cable channel that wants to run some of my content. They are SD so they are requesting content on a DVD in Mpeg-2 format. That's all the more info I can get from these guys! My


So I'm assuming that if I send them a DVD they will want to be able to insert the media in their head-end encoder/computer and copy the mpeg-2 file(s) into their storage for programming and playback.


The file I'm dealing with is a .mov file that was generated by Apple FCPX



So here's the problem. When I go thru the toast tutorial for making a DVD and follow the steps, the software goes thru the process and acts like everything is fine. At the end....my DVD drive in my Mac Pro can't get the file to start! The media is Memorex DVD-R 4.73GB 16X.


Any ideas for this type application? Suggestions and step by step would be greatly appreciated. Think maybe I'm using the wrong media?

I'll get some different media today and try. Thx for the reply


Here's but one example. I have a project with three basic video clips. Set up a menu. Click auto play off. Burn DVD.


I use a Apple Mac Book Pro running 10.8.5. When I install the disk back in drive I get a black screen with transport from Apples' DVD player app.. Okay... I click on menu and "not permitted" pops up in upper left hand corner! When I screw around and seemingly "force" the app to work, it then cuts off the first few frames of the first video and I never do have access to the other two. What's goin on?


I'm a relatively savvy apple user.....but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to use Titanium 11.1! Where's all the comprehensive user guides, video tutorials? Customer support is basically non exisitent! And I hear this is the best DVD Authoring program out there for Mac?


Someone please save us.

Thx...but where in these are the anything that speaks to what I'm discussing? I've watched every video that Roxio provides...and I find them more promotional than informative. Thx anyway

It appears from you're description that you're doing everything right. Memorex is notoriously bad media so that could be the problem. I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image from the File menu instead of clicking the burn button. When that is done switch to the Toast Copy window, choose Image File and then select the .toast disc image that you just saved. When you mount it DVD Player should either automatically launch to start playback or you can select it from DVD Player's File menu. What you should see is the same thing the burned disc should do on a DVD Player.


Toast unfortunately does not have an option to simply create an mpeg 2 video file. Instead the mpeg 2 video is within the content of the VIDEO_TS folder. There is a freeware app called MPEG Streamclip that can extract the mpeg 2 video file from the VIDEO_TS folder. This can be done from the mounted disc image as well as from the burned DVD. In that case you could burn the extracted mpeg 2 file using the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting in the Toast Data window if the cable channel wants it to be mpeg 2 rather than a video DVD.
