Exporting freezes and time stamp does not change
Hello, I am using Hitfilm Free and I have consistently been having issues with exporting my videos. About 4/5 times when I try to export my videos, the export would stop progressing at a random percentage. The program is still functioning and has not crashed yet no progress is made.
Lenovo Ideapad 3 15ITL6
Intel i5-1135G7 @2.40 Ghz
12 GB DDR4
Intel Integrated iRIS graphics
256 GB PCIe SSD
Typically ranges from 8-10 min with multiple composite shots. Very few special effects. Hit film file size is roughly 60 MB. I add audio to the videos in .mp3 and export in 1080p. Suspending the export also takes forever.
So I know my PC specs are not great but I was usually able to export in the past with bigger more complex files. I usually close all other applications so my PC can focus on the exporting. I am considering a RAM upgrade on my laptop to help it better handle multiple tasks. It goes smoothly up to a certain percentage, then stops altogether for hours. Any suggestions?
