Choppy .wmv playback

Hey folks, new Hitfilmer here.

I've tried working with two video formats so far; .m2ts and .wmv.

The .m2ts files play back smoothly in the Editing environment, but the .wmv files stutter, lag, and freeze.  I've tried both HD .wmvs and 640x480 to no avail.

It's not a showstopper, since I can just convert all of my files to .m2ts before editing, but I'm curious as to whether or not I can fix this. It doesn't happen in my other video editor, so it's definitely specific to HitFilm 3.

My system specs:

Windows 7

CPU/RAM: 3.2 Mhz AMD, 16GB

GPU: AMD Radeon R9 270X, 2GB


  • So, following up on my own issue...

    I imported a short .wmv last night and it played fine.  At the moment, the only difference between it and the other ones I tried were that they were rendered in different programs.  I will most likely investigate further, but I don't think this is an issue with Hitfilm or my setup.

    Carry on!
