Toast 11 Using A Single Cpu ?


Any suggestions would be welcomed on this


I am trying to burn an 8GB MKV file to either DVD or Bluray using Toast 11.2

My machine is an iMac, 16GB 3,4GHz I7, so not really a small machine. Yet it takes forever to encode a file this size. Looking in Activity Monitor, CPU usage is stuck at a miserable 100% or so (often less), where a program like Handbrake will use all 8 cores of the I7


Support by Roxio or Corel really does not deserve to be called like that, because they will only accept questions when you enter a "support code". (This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen), so I cannot ask them if there is a way to have Toast use all cores.


So, does anybody of you know a way to boost Toast a little ?

I have a similar Quad Core, 8 threads iMac, doing 430% CPU on a MP4 to BD, and 690% on an MKV to BD conversion. (Toast 11.0.4)

(By comparison, Cinebench will do 796% CPU, with a few other apps open but idle.)

Same issue. Encoding a bluray on an 8-core mac pro. Day two... 28% Maxes out at about 140% CPU time 39:33:48.14


All content was already in h.264, why reencode it at all?


I did just turn App Nap off... maybe it will work a bit faster asleep.


ZZZZZzzzzzzzz :angry:
