I have been using hitfilm express for a couple of weeks now coming from lightworks. I like everything about Hitfilm editing capabilities! But export is giving me some headache.
Also would like to say i have read all posts about export performance.
I understand that it mainly uses GPU rather than CPU for exporting but i have a feeling something is not right in my setup so i would like to confirm.
So my project is formed with a bunch of videos from Gopro Hero 5, 1920X1080 and one Audio track from a voice recorder. So normally I delete the Gopro audio and add the recorder one.
I tried a few different configs, but as an example lets say i export it using the Youtube 1080p HD profile.
A video of 1 hour is taking about 4 hours to export and my system is as follows:
Intel i5 2250-K @ 3.40GHz - 8GB RAM - Windows 10 Pro
GPU - Radeon RX 580 Series - 8GB RAM1
So my questions:
Does it sound about right the time it is taking to export?
Is there a way to optimise it to use more resources and therefore export it faster?
For that video as example it is using about 50% CPU and 27% GPU.
Also, what can I do to save some space in the output videos besides set up export of smaller resolution videos?
Thanks in advance
