Exporting not finishing starting

Here are my parts:


I have a 6min 5sec video which is going on 9hrs 45mins in the "starting" phase. I am exporting to the Youtube 1080p preset.

Any other information I should provide?

    Hitfilm version?

    Is this just a video, no effects or grading added?

    What format is the video (Decoder needed / compression)?


  • Hitfilm 4 Express.

    Yeah, just a video; I haven't messed with transitions or anything like that.

    Um, I'm at work right now, so I can't tell you 100% sure what format the video was coming in, but it's however you get it from Twitch. 720p at 59.x fps, that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

    I am having the same problem - massive export times. I have tried many different things to fix it, but with no luck. 

    I have restarted my computer many times, made sure every single driver is updated, changed the location of the video files, removed unused programs, disabled multiple processes and programs while using HitFilm, changed the settings within the HitFilm project and exported to YouTube rather than MP4.
