Bug - Turning masks on and off has no effect
Currently working on a comp where i have a mask in a layer and turning it off (or on) only takes effect on the first action. Here:
I realise this is a bug and would like to use this opportunity to raise a more pertinent concern.
Since 2016 I've noticed new releases are more frequent, and because new releases mean new issues, this is reflected in the fact that newer versions are a lot more buggy.
I've been using hitfilm since 2016 and must say it's still the most capable free editing platform hands down.
I'd like to make a few suggestions:
1. Release new versions to a small group of enthusiasts ahead of public releases to pic up on obvious issues (sort of what Microsoft is doing with the windows insider program)
2. Release a mid-tier version of hitfilm that sits between express and pro. I'd gladly pay $50 for this (without customer support) if i knew it was almost free of bugs. (Understand, I am not a power user so hitfilm express has a lot more than what i need in a video editor. As such there's no value to me in going pro right now. I'd gladly pay for stability and add-ons.)
3. Release new versions less frequently. this just means you can put more into each new version. Ideally this would allow you to make stability a priority.
Many thanks to Axel and the team for a great product all the same.
