Hitfilm 4 Pro Unusable on relatively new Macbook?
I have a mid 2014 13 inch macbook pro (a then 1300$ computer)
Its specs are
2.6 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 ram
Intel Iris 1536MB graphics.
I have tried different scaling options for resolutions, but hitfilm won't play 1080P/30 videos even in the "quarter" setting. No matter what I do, every single input takes 3-5 seconds to take effect, and often times the entire program crashes before that can happen!
On top of this, other editing software works great. I paid 600$ for hitfilm as I'm in Canada, so this is causing me a lot of anguish.
I get that macs suck for the price, I get that this computer could be faster, but this doesn't seem like it adds up. Can anyone please help?
