Windows 10 64-bit on Dell XPS 8700 desktop
CPU: Intel i5 Quad core
RAM: 32gb ram
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 635
My CPU is being overloaded by Hitfilm, and the software either becomes unresponsive or crashes moments after opening projects.
I've always experienced more crashes than I would like using Hitfilm over the past couple years (always at least 1 or 2 crashes per session), but the past couple days it's become really bad.
I've checked updates, drivers, etc. They're all up to date. I only noticed the CPU overload when I opened task manager and saw how much Hitfilm (and only Hitfilm) was overwhelming the CPU, even with minor tasks.
Efforts such as reducing the preview window quality and turning off the thumbnail preview have a marginal effect at best.
Any help would be appreciated.
