PC specs are as follows

Ryzen 5900, G.skill TridentZ Neo ddr4 3600mhz, CL16, Nvidia 1060, Asus ROG strix b550-F motherboard, Samsung 860 EVO 2TB SSD

Completely new build. with the exeption of the GPU

i was trying to import a 5 gig clip, went fine along with the audio for the clip, but as soon as i drop it in the timeline, it starts processing, stutter a bit, give me the not responding promt, and make my system come to a complete crawl, and within 20 seconds, freeze up, ending with i have to reach for the killswitch, and cut power to the system.

My own investigation was as follows; I checked out what in the world was going on, and according to task mannager, it seems to first hog all the RAM, not really bother with the GPU, then max out on the SSD, and then proceed to freeze.
