Delay/Lag when moving around timeline
Let me start by saying I know almost nothing about computers, so technical questions will likely get a blank look from me until you explain it like I'm 5.
But with that in mind, I've had almost no problems using Hitfilm for some time now, but have recently hit a snag when trying to edit. Clicking on any point in the timeline leads to a good 5-10 second delay before the...white line thingy...catches up and the viewer image changes. Scrubbing through the timeline is impossible, and forget about trying to play anything even at a low-resolution.
Come to think of it, the Trimmer view won't play back either for the same reason. It gets hung up on one frame, eventually fights its way to another, later frame, and then struggles to leap on down the line. It's like me trying to walk by a buffet.
I'd seen a similar issue in the past when I had too many programs running in the background, like video capture software or Photoshop, so maybe it's something to do with "RAM," but nothing else is running now and I don't know how to check what might be slowing me down so badly.
