    I have toast 11 Titanium and am using it to burn some videos I have on my 2008 MBP. I started burning/encoding them last night around 10:30pm. It's now 1:45pm and they have barely started to actually burn onto the dvd. The encoding part took more than 12 hours!! I have a C2D Intel, 4gb ram and 500gb HDD...is that a normal time for the encoding/burning process and is there a way to make quicker or a program that is quicker?

    Thanks

    there is a "copy" tab

    then Open, find the dvd, than burn, it reads the disc than prompts for a blank disc

    Do you want to burn a video DVD (playable by a video DVD player)?
    What format and codec is the source file and how long is it?
    In order to find out the codec, you can use the following applications:
    When done, you can use the "Report" (VideoSpec) and "Export" (Media Inspector) button to export a report,
    attachable to your next post via the [​IMG] button.
    In MediaInfo you have to go to the Menu Bar, select View > Text and copy the text via CMD+A > CMD+C and paste it via CMD+V into your next post.

    Also what settings do you use in Toast Titanium exactly? And have you looked at Activity Monitor to see, how much CPU Toast uses?

    I have some videos in .m4v file format and they are all about 40 mins long. I have default settings on Toast.
