Hitfilm devours my hard drive space whenever it's in use for seemingly no reason
Hey all, sorry if this is a redundant question, but I'm really at my wit's end here. Recently, I've been running into the issue of Hitfilm Pro 15 chewing up my hard drive space whenever I open large projects. I'll keep File Explorer open on a separate window, and watch my C: drive storage gradually decrease from ~20 GB of free space as I use the program. Eventually, the drive's capacity reaches 0 bytes of free storage, and Hitfilm crashes. This happens on every single project I open.
I've migrated Hitfilm from my C: drive (128 GB SATA SSD) to a different drive (1TB M.2 PCI-E GEN 4 SSD) in hopes that this would resolve the issue, but nope. The directories for my cache, cache database, snapshots, auto-saves, and pre-renders are all on my 1TB SSD. Nothing even vaguely related to Hitfilm is on my C: drive, and yet it continuously inflates. I'm not using proxies for any of these projects.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
