I just searched for a new kinda low-budget Software for Editing as many people ask me what to use. I don't like Vegas, Magix and stuff and I was giving up on getting a new Favorit "on the cheap", but then an eMail with the release of HitFilm hit my Mailbox
I tried both Versions, Ultimate would be my Choice (Standard misses far too many Coloring Features...).
But I have one question - what do I have to do to get a realtime-playback? It acts very poor, is slow and only 10fps or something; even if I did NOTHING with the Footage.
I tried both, direct h.264-Footage from my DSLR and converted DNxHD; both performed poor on the same way.
Some people might think it's because of my PC, but... I'm using a Dual-CPU Workstation with 16 cores and 24GB RAM, with a GTX 560 Ti. I think this should be enough to get at least half-resolution of FullHD-Material? Even Quarter isn't fluid at all.
Without a realtime-playback, a NLE isn't usable for me
