Issue With Avchd File And Toast 12

Question

Hi, I have a movie file that's an MKV. Video is H264 - MPEG4 AVC (part 10) (avc1), 704x578, 25 fps. Audio is AC3. The file is 1.43 GB. When I drop it into Toast 12 in the DVD Video window, the program accepts it. But then when I try to burn a DVD, or write a disk image, the program crashes in short order. (Then it won't start up again, and I have to restart the Mac.)

 

I'm using Toast 12, OS X 10.10.3, an i5 iMac with 8 GB of RAM.

 

I have transcoded the file to an MP4 with H264 video, using HandBrake. Toast seems to be happy with that, but it's taking a long time.

 

However, that's not the cleanest procedure. Is there something I'm doing wrong in Toast? Is there a better workaround?

My guess is that particular file had an error near the start which caused Toast to crash. Handbrake could handle the error but Toast's encoder could not. Toast is rather picky and ungraceful in this way.
