Latest release keeps hanging/freezing
Lately, Hitfilm Express 2021.3 has been hanging or freezing while I'm trying to edit. It will eventually right itself and I can work again. This seems to mostly happen after I pause or move the timeline marker, thankfully not while the preview is playing. It also seems to happen consistently while I was to record a voiceover, resulting in that voiceover corrupting. Once the countdown reaches 1, it freezes for a moment and then generates a clip with a 0 frame duration.
The only thing I've noticed as far as how my PC is running is that for some reason, during the duration it's hanging, Power Usage spikes to "very high" - it goes back to low when the program is working correctly. However, while it's hanging, there seems to be no effect on CPU, GPU, or memory drain. That in and of itself is very confusing to me.
I've updated my graphics drivers and that did not solve the issue. I'm really not sure what's causing this to happen.
