Windows 10 Creators update causes laggy editing performance
- Windows 10, version 1709 (Creators update)
- i7 7500U (2.7GHz)
- GeForce GTX 950M
- 16 GB memory
I've been using Hitfilm Express for a few months now without any issues—at all. About a month ago Windows 10 Creators update was automatically downloaded and installed to my laptop, and I instantly noticed a constant lag / frames dropping during the Hitfilm editing process. (It was painful.) The issue never cleared itself up, so I rolled back the update and Hitfilm worked smoothly again.
However, Creators update has now reinstalled itself, and once again the laggy performance has returned to Hitfilm. There will eventually come a point when I can't keep rolling back this Windows 10 update, so I need to know how I can get it working smoothly again. (Why is Hitfilm unusable with the latest version of Windows 10?)
Does this issue occur with Hitfilm Pro? Will I need to change editors?
I appreciate any help anyone can offer.
