Problems using different FPS?

edited November 2022 in HitFilm


I'm editing a gameplay using videos from two players. One video is 60 FPS the other is 25 FPS. The project I'm working in is 60 FPS. The 60 FPS video is 40 minutes long and the 25 minutes video is 20 minutes long. I'm only using 20 minutes from each.

HitFilm struggles to deal with the videos. In the viewer the 25 FPS video often freezes. And from time to time the entire system freezes.

Could the problem be, that I'm using videoes with different FPS? Or are the files just too big for my computer to handle?

I'm editing the videos on an MSI GF65 Thin with i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, GeForce RTX™ 2060.

Best, Niels

    Hi there.

    If you are having a few issues with the variable frame rates of your files, I would recommend converting them to a format better suited to editing tasks and making sure the FPS matches.

    Handbrake is a free application that can be used to convert your video.

    In Handbrake, select MP4 as your Container, then use the following settings in the Video tab:


    Constant Quality: 17 RF


    Constant Framerate: Enabled


    Fast Decode: enabled

    H.264 Profile: High

    H.264 Level: Auto

    Extra Options: keyint=10:bframes=0

    This should resolve the issue for you.
