Another "Hitfilm is eating up my drive space" kind of problem, how can I fix it?
What the title says. I only use Hitfilm Express to create personal compilations of videos (that means, I cut the parts I like from certain videos, usually funny fragments from YouTubers I follow, it's a hobby thing), most of these are about 60 min long (and I try to do one yearly or so). I'm used to it slowly eating up space (let's say, sometimes up to 8 gb, who knows what is it doing with 8 gbs, the entire source videos sizes about 2-3 gb in total, but anyway, guess it's cache stuff or something).
Now, here's the problem, my last compilation is about 2 hs duration, and I decided to split it into 3 videos. Now, when I export it, just 20% or so already takes about 10 GB, and it's actually exporting to my D drive (110 free GB). The thing is, it is taking space only from my C one with less than 16 GB. In short, I have no 50 or so GB to share with the software .-.
In addition to this, I have 16 GB ram and a 1070 (in case it helps find a fix) and I also have another external hard drive with about 500 free GB, and that being said, the final size of the videos usually are less than 3 GB too. I'm considering changing software or maybe try installing it in the D drive (still stupid for me, the software has options to set up directories, everything regarding exports is set to D drive, is there something I'm missing?)
At least would like it to use 50 or 500 GB temporally but from my external drive, not the C one where the OS is located, wanna take 10 times more time, sure no prob, cause that way I can at least have it exported, in the end still better than nothing. Thanks in advance people, hope you anyone can help me or point me up in the right direction on how to fix this hm
