Does anyone know if a LaCie D2 DVD writer will work with DVD Studio Pro? The reason I ask is that I currently have it running with Toast Titanium 6 (out of the box) which will automatically change all files to Qucktime Mpeg4 - am I right? So if I uninstall Toast, can I then use DVD staudio to burn....?

moji,


Toast converting everything to MPEG4? weird. It may be an option you have got turned on. I guess you realise that you should try to encode all your video and audio first then import them to DVDSP, then build and format the disc.

I encode in Compressor first, as it means you don't wait for DVDSP to encode, only to find it crashes near the end. You can also batch convert (I use various bitrate attempt to maximise the encode quality)

I personally create DVD image files in DVDSP, instead of burning directly to disc. Then double click the created image file (it will mount onto the desktop), switch Toast to data UDF mode. Then drag the DVD folder from the desktop inot Toast. Burn and your done.

Been totally faultless for me (never a problem) total compatibility and most of my masters recently have gone to glass mastering and retail with not probs at all.
