Ok nothing has changed on my system and it has been running absolutely fine through Hitfilm 3 and 4 pro. However recently just opening up Hitfilm I end up waiting forever for even the splash screen to come up then when I select new it takes even longer to get to the video settings. After waiting forever for that to pop up then select composite shot it takes forever and half the time ends up unresponsive and windows wants to close it. As stated above I have not installed any programs nor downloaded anything from the time it has been working fine to now. No other programs on my computer are running this way either so I know it isn't a virus or malware or any other type of ware. Only thing I haven't tried yet is to uninstall it completely and reinstall.
