When using the strech tool and hitting play soon afterwards causes Hitfilm to crash
I was trying to find the ideal amount of stretch on a clip in my project (which only consisted of 3 clips and a total of around 30 seconds) and hitting playback to see in the viewer it has caused my project to crash three times in a row now. All I do is change the rate to 250% speed or so and the software stops responding every time. I already feel like I have to save after every single action I make and take it super slow when using the program to avoid this wasting time spent on editing.
Is this to be expected, or can I do something to ensure this stops happening?
