Okay so I just bought HitFilm Standard because I'm not really a pro but I like editing visual effects and what not. Now I'm only a kid so I don't have a job to afford new things all the time. I have a basic computer, I never put in new graphics card or lots of RAM. For example I have about 4GB of RAM and my graphics card is the same as when I bought the computer. It's like HD something.
As we speak HitFilm is very slow and skips a lot. Now I've read that they're making updates but I'm not sure that its the program. Could it be mostly my computer? If so does that mean I need to go out and buy about 12GB of RAM and a fancy graphics card? Or when they make all their updates will I be able to run it as smooth as running any other editing program, like After Effects and Sony Vegas.
Please Help, thanks.
