Ive been experiencing difficulties when taking a full quality dv (quicktime) file from final cut pro and burning it onto dvd. The good quality is apparent but there are occasional clusters of pixels. I am baffled by the fact that the quality is prestine when played on the computer from the file. I have been using the video section of Toast titanium to burn the disc and was wondering if anyone knew why this is happening and how I can solve it. Its driving me mad.

Toast will need to re-encode DV to mpeg2. Maybe that's were the issues arise. I don't like using Toast for making DVDs. I have Toast 6 Lite ( came with my new DVD Burner) and it works, but there are often sound-sync issues etc.

I second gammamonk. Toast has given me hassles as well. Why not just use iDVD? It's a great program. I have yet to burn a disc that has not played back perfectly.

I cant use IDvd because it doesnt seem to be compatable with the external lacie dvd burner im using. Can you think of any software that is compatible.

iLife 06 should be compatible. I use a Lacie D2 DL DVD burner with my combo-drive Powerbook G4.

Check Apple's website and it says to use a third party burner with iDVD you need to save it as a disk image first.
