What Blu-Ray Plug-In Required For Toast 12

Question

Will the Blu-ray Plug-in I'm successfully using with Toast 11 work if I upgrade to Toast 12? According to the feature comparison page for standard and pro versions of Toast 12, the standard version appears to offer Blu-ray authoring with a plug-in, but I'm not sure whether that means I can use the Blu-ray authoring feature with the plug-in I've already purchased? I haven't seen an offering of a Blu-ray plug-in that is specific to Toast 12. Thanks.

If you look on their product page they sell the "Toast 11 & 12" Blu-ray plugin. So that sounds like you don't need a new Blu-ray plugin when you already have the Toast 11 one. That's different from how things were between Toast 10 and 11. The new feature which allows burning Blu-ray format videos to standard DVDs without the plugin does not allow burning Blu-ray format videos to Blu-ray media. The latter requires the plugin.

Right, it sounds that way, but I'm hoping somebody knows for sure, because from past experience that would surprise me. Thanks.

Why are you interested in Toast 12 if you have Toast 11 with the Blu-Ray plugin? Just curious. Meanwhile someone will answer your question from actual experience at some point.

I generally find that Toast 11 meets my needs, and I don't have time to invoke the support process every time something unexpected happens. I would hope that any new release for a commercial software product might offer improvements to be enjoyed by the consumer, whether or not all such improvements can be specifically promoted or described. This is the hope of both software customers and developers, I believe, although there's no substitute for making informed purchasing decisions. Or am I being foolishly optimistic?

Based on my experience I suggest waiting awhile to see what experience others are having with Toast 12, unless you know it does something that Toast 11 isn't able to do for one reason or another. Unless, of course, a really good deal is offered. This upgrade seems to have very little change other than the inclusion of a new app for screen recording. In time we'll learn if it has some desirable bug fixes and works better with the next Mac OS.
