Hitfilm Express freezes and crashes on startup

Jaygaming21 Posts: 3 Just Starting Out*

I've been using Hitfilm Express for years now but for whatever reason now it just freezes on startup. I get past the logo and then it just freezes. It worked fine a few days ago and I didn't update or do anything with it during that time, so I have no idea why it's starting to crash. I tried downloading the latest update but it still freezes and crashes.

my specs are:

GTX 1080

Intel i7-9700k
