For Laptop users - force discrete GPU for hitfilm

Hi guys,

I encountered a problem with my desktop PC, but I found something very useful for all laptop users. Maybe it should be added in FAQ or pinned ?

INFO for all Laptop users (maybe modos should pin it in new thread : you can (you MUST) specify which GPU (discrete or intergrated) Hitfilm uses.

for AMD users with crimson drivers :

Open Radeon settings

click on house (bottom left)

click preferences

click top left button "more radeon settings" [it will open the old catalyst interface]

go to "power tab" then you can set for each program witch GPU you want to use.

google "laptop switching  AMD" for more details.

For Nvidia Optimus :

it's the same kind of setting in Nvidia settings. Google it, it seems to be easier.

    While this was true for older versions of HitFilm, the current versions of both HitFilm 4 Express and HitFilm Pro  2017 will automatically use the more powerful GPU on systems that have multiple GPUs available.
