I've been using Hit Film 4 Express for two months or so... I love the software. Easy to use and it's free.
But there's something that is driving me crazy. It happens repeatedly on every project I work. I usually work with two tracks, one for the video and one for the audio. My basic workflow is slicing both tracks to make the audio and video tell a meaningful story. So I always do a lot of slicing on a single project. I don't use many effects, only basic video transitions.
Thus, I need to keep moving back and forth, and I use the horizontal scrollbar a lot. Ok, but once or twice when I am editing a project, when I try to move the horizontal scrollbar to the left, the software freezes. As I use a Mac computer, I always see that annoying spinning beachball of death. So, to avoid losing everything, I need to hit save after each slice command. That's tedious!
I've tried to look for a way to reproduce the problem, but it doesn't happen all the time. So, I don't know what is causing it, or what I am doing to generate the behavior.
Below you'll have some info about my system and hardware.
