    Please post your system specs and more information on your project - type of video files, their origin, etc. The current version of HF has increased system requirements.

    If your video is coming from a consumer device such as a phone then it will be Variable Frame Rate and not Constant Frame Rate (CFR is preferred). VFR can slow things down. Also, if you are editing in 4K and your system is on the edge, that will slow things down, too.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. Sorry if my english is not good as it's not my first language.

    I try to edit a video but as soon as I load it I get the "wait for program to respond" or "close program" option.

    @Cilou6 Please avoid posting to old threads. The software changes throughout the year, so a 6 month old thread may not be the same problem. Best to start a new thread with your issue.

    That said, I believe your GPU - Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, may to be under spec. Please compare your system with the minimum and recommended specs listed here -

    Also, note that keeping your drivers current is highly important. Read the information at the top of the page about how to update your GPU drivers.

    Other things to look for are other programs eating resources on your system. Go to the Task Manager, then the Startup tab and uncheck unnecessary items that may get fired up on boot that then run in the background. Also, your virus software can be eating resources or may be interfering with HF. A troubleshooting step would be to temporarily disable your virus software long enough to test if that is conflicting with HF.
