HitFilm Freezes and Crashes after I move a clip on timeline

uyekster Posts: 3 Just Starting Out*

Hello everyone,

When I first import my clips, I can scrub through them without issues. As soon as I move them to any other position on the timeline and try to play, the viewer freezes but the audio continues to play and there is a blue line scrolling across the bottom of the viewer. As soon as I stop playback, this is when Hitfilm locks up entirely and has to be force quit. I moved over to Hitfilm (free) from Hitfilm Express because it was doing the same thing in express. So the issue seems to have followed me to the new verison.

The following video shows the above in action.

 I’ve been using Hitfilm since 2019 without issue. Now all of a sudden I’m stuck saving and restarting after every move I make just to hit my deadlines.
