    What are your computer specs(ram,cpu,gpu) and for future notice please don't type with all caps. It makes your reply hard to read.

    Your computer might be slow, the footage might be in a wrong codec many possible reasons. Try the RAM preview button.

    We've used Canon DSLRs a lot here without any problems. Fame - where are you files stored?

    I use Canon video (7D & t3i) with no problems.  What's system specs? Specifically, what's your GPU?

    I use a T3i as well and normally I don't have issues importing files into HitFilm.
    How many files are you trying to import at the same time?  Sometimes, I've had issues when loading a large group of files into HitFilm at the same time.  Breaking them up into smaller groups has resolved that.

    Caleb, here's the relevant manual page:
    http://hitfilm.com/reference-manuals/hitfilm-2-ultimate#preview_rendering.htm?zoom_highlightsub=ram%2Bpreview
    RAM preview is the blue play/pause button on the lower right of the viewer panel--just below the preview image. What it does is render the timeline to RAM (using current settings for lights, shadows, motion blur, DoF, full/half/quarter resolution, etc) so that you can playback an effect in real time from the edit timelines. Since export is always as full resolution, lights/shadows/blur/DoF on, and anti-aliased, being able to select the quality of your RAM preview is another useful tool.
    And, of course, this lets you take a look at how something is coming together without committing to exporting to disk.
    You're gonna love it!
