[SOLVED] Hitfilm 4 Express - Cannot create new project
I'm a new user, I fully acknowledge that I simply may be messing up, but I cannot seem to create a new project in Hitfilm 4 Express. I open the client, and am greeted with the normal screen. I click on 'New' at the top left, and nothing happens. The entire window freezes up and does not respond to anything (I can still close it with the X button at the top right, though). The same thing happens if I use File > New. There is no error message, the whole thing simply stops responding, no matter how long I leave it be. This is quite frustrating, as I want to get to learning to use this as soon as possible (I'm a little pressed for time).
I'm not running any other applications (aside from Task Manager and Chrome) and I do not use antivirus. I have confirmed that my graphics drivers are up to date.
If it helps, Task Manager's reported disk usage after I hit the 'New' button sits at a cool 0%.
Edit: After looking into it a bit more, I realize that I'm dealing with the same 'Nvidia Optimus' issue detailed in the post by Ady pinned to the top of the support forum. Simply didn't know until I did a bit more research that my GPU fell under that category (should'a guessed, frankly). Regardless, thank you very much.
