[{"insert":"Hey everyone, I recently switched from using Hitfilm on a Lenovo Ideapad to a MacBook Pro. However, when I first tried using the Atomic Particles on a Particle Simulator it said “Failed to Initialize Shaders!”\nI already checked the forums and the same thing has happened to other people. According to someone this was happening to because their “system is really barely scraping the minimum required specs for running Hitfilm.” But I don’t think this is my case because I already checked the CPU requirements for running hitfilm, and my MacBook Pro has got them all (RAM: 16 GB , Processor: 2.3 Ghz 8 - Core Intel Core 9!)\nDoes anyone know what could be reason the Atomic Particles are not working? In case you’re wondering, I am not using the latest version of hitfilm because I chose not to, but let me know if this is part of the problem.\n"},{"insert":{"embed-external":{"data":{"url":"https:\/\/us.v-cdn.net\/6032382\/uploads\/SOEYHGQBFGUY\/ffd225bd-9e18-4cf6-8055-2b96294ff43a.jpeg","name":"FFD225BD-9E18-4CF6-8055-2B96294FF43A.jpeg","type":"image\/jpeg","size":71926,"width":1119,"height":551,"displaySize":"large","float":"none","embedType":"image"},"loaderData":{"type":"image"}}}},{"insert":"\n"}]

    Hitfilm is very GPU dependent. Effects and rendering is done on the GPU. The GPU in the MacBook is more important than the i9.


    What's your GPU? If you don't have a dedicated GPU you're basically "scraping by on (near) minimum requirements."

    Ok, the Radeon 5500m ain't a bad card.

    I'm PC so I'll tag in Mac user @GrayMotion and FXhome's @JavertValbarr for more insights. Otherwise I edited your headline to add your CPU and GPU to help anyone else who jumps in get up to speed.
