Composite shot issue

Howdy.

After turning a clip into a composite shot, the composite shot preview starts playing from random points in the clip. I cant go to the beginning of the clip at all for some reason as it begins in the middle or sometimes later. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    @Cuefy Please read the posting requirements and follow them. Without this it is very difficult to help. Thanks

    In all due respect. It's kinda crazy for you to expect me to list all those things when just from reading the issue its clear that its a problem with the application, and not any possible problems with my hardware. I may have messed around with some settings inside of hitfilm that I shouldn't have therefore I was hoping someone could help me recognise the problem but I suppose not.

    I'd love to add a video of the issue except the maximum file size is 50mb. If my problem was able to fit into a video 50mb in size it wouldn't even be a problem worth mentioning... But whatever I'll upload a youtube video and add the link.

    I included a youtube video link that describes and demonstrates the problem to the best of my ability. (check the description for a summary of the issue).

    Try pre-rendering the Comp.

    We ask for the specs data to verify you are above minimum specs for Hitfilm and that your GPU drivers are current. We ask about file formats/MediaInfo reports because your video might be from a strange source and/or VFR, which is known to cause issues. In many cases a transcode of the footage solves the issue.

    If your footage is phone or tablet it's VFR and needs transcoding. If it's a screen capture it's probably VFR and needs transcoding.

    I don't have the issue you mention, and I assume it's rare. If it is a bug it might relate to a known issue affecting a small subset of issues, in which case answering the questions gives data to the devs trying to debug.

    Otherwise, the way your initial question is phrased comes down to "there's a problem" and your speculation is "I must have set the 'make it flicker' flag. We need data.

    A small subset of users are having issues with proxies. Going into File>Options>Proxies and disabling them might help.

    GPU drivers - you can't trust Windows or your GPU Management software to report driver updates. Check from the manufacturer website.

    I've also merged your threads. One per question/issue, please. Multiple threads will fragment the discussion and lead to redundant Q&A.

    It wont even allow me to pre-render. Is there any way to uninstall hitfilm and all of its settings so I can re-download and start fresh? I think its necessary, nothing else I do seems to be working.

    You can download Installers of Hitfilm back to 9.0 here

    Are you trying to pre render the Comp Shot or the media file in the bin? Starting with 2021.2, I don't think you can Pre-render from a bin. That's been superceded by the new proxies.
