Muzzle Flash Not Showing Up

I put my muzzle flash in my project, but every once in a while it will stop showing up when I play it back. Any help would be appreciated.

    What's happening is that your system can't quite manage to process every single frame in realtime when you play your HitFilm timeline. When one of the frames that gets skipped happens to be the one containing the muzzle flash, then you don't see the effect. After you Export, and the effects are baked into the new video clip, they will always be present. Another option is to extend the muzzle flashes so they last more than one frame, and are thus more likely to show up, but the fact of the matter is, whether or not they display when you playback within HitFilm has no bearing whatsoever on how they will actually appear in the final exported clip.
