Trimmer Window Lag
I'm having a problem with Hitfilm 4 Express lag. I fixed it in the preview window by turning down the quality of the video, but I can't figure out how to fix it in the trimmer window. It's obviously important that the trimmer window runs smoothly, but there doesn't seem to be any way to fix it. I'm running it on a laptop with an i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and an NVIDIA graphics card. I should have plenty of power. Granted, I am trying to edit MOV files (turned to proxies in program), but since I can make the preview window run smoothly, I figured I should be able to do the same with the trimmer window.
I can't find anything anywhere online about this specific issue so I wonder if I'm missing something obvious here? It seems like I'm having the opposite problem that others have in that my preview window runs ok, but the trimmer window doesn't.
I also don't want to convert my footage because I can't afford a good converter and all the free ones are garbage in my experience. Plus, I want to edit my videos sooner rather than later and I already lost hours converting to proxy.
