    You don't "fix this."

    Hitfilm uses the GPU for all rendering and effects. The CPU basically only grabs source frames from media files, calculates particle physics and writes rendered frames to the output file.

    1% SSD usage, 13% CPU usage and 90% GPU usage is pretty optimal, actually. Looks like one CPU thread is grabbing and writing frames while the GPU does its thing...

    100% GPU use would be... Not "bad," but showing you have heavy enough effects where the CPU is idling, waiting for frames to render.

    You're seeing what you should see.
