    Ok lets pretend that I am 8 years old, because thats what I feel like sometimes with computers. Heres what I want to do. Take AVI Files, and burn them to a DVD and put in chapters.
    I have Toast 7 Titanium, anyone want to help and walk me through it in nice easy English? I would greatly appreciate it! And how long does a DVD take to burn?

    Beautiful Vancouver British Columbia, Canada

    I'll give it a shot.

    Open Toast.

    Click on "video"

    on the option "drawer" that you can open or close with the little "arrow" icon.

    select. "DVD Video"

    Drag your AVI file/s into the big window.

    They should show up (if they don't then they are unsupported)

    then, click on "edit" >select "video"

    then you can set it to put a chapter every 2 minutes/3 minutes/ ect...

    You can change the settings as well for a template for the way the menu will look. (cinema, beach, office, ect....) (that is under the "more" settings")

    Get a DVD RW so you can experiment, and erase it if you don't like the results.

    Click the big red circle, "burn"

    it will take a little while to encode and burn

    good luck

    Just to follow up with previous answer...

    * should take a minute or two for every minute of source video to prepare the video (also called encoding)

    * you can try saving to a disc image to your hard disk drive to preview the disc prior to burning

    look in the manual for information about saving a disk image, mounting a disk image, and burning a disk image. you can also search help.
