Which software is suitable to creat Video CD on Mac OS based machine?

Could anyone know which software is suitable to creat Video CD on Mac OS based machine? I know how to burn the exist VCD via ASTARTE CD-Copy 2.02 and Adaptec Toast 3.5.5. But I have no idea to creat my own V8 video clips of my lovely daughter into an indexable, digitalized, and long term way to keep her happy hours in VCD media. Many thanks to anyone who can give me a direction.

You can use Adobe Premiere 5.1 to edit your video clips and save it as quick time file. Then you need to convert your quicktime files into mpeg file by using Astarte M. Pack 2.6.1. Make sure Toast-Ready was checked.

I did it and it works great. But there is no any sound. I don't know why?..

If someone out there has any idea, please help!!

I have had good luck using Astarte M. Pact, Toast 3.5.7 and Editing Final Cut Pro. The key is that some Video CD, CD-R, CD-RW seem to troubles with playback. My discs play perfect in Philips brand DVD Players. (Even ones that don't say they support Video CD) The Pioneer DV-525 seems to be problematic with this set up. I did get good results out of a high end Sony DVD Player. Video looked the best on the Philips DVD players. Anxious to try out the Apex P
