Ok, so I literally used hitfilm yesterday and it worked out fine. But at this moment (9:44 PM), it is too laggy to open up a project file and I end up having to force close it. Yes, my specs are at the bare minimum, but as I said, it smooth yesterday. I looked through the forums and someone said that if you make a new user on win10, it will run fast again. While it did work on that user, it is continuously laggy on my main user. I don't want to switch from user to user just to use hitfilm. I tried restarting my laptop and that didn't work too
I installed a mod client for minecraft an hour ago, so that might be the case on why it is lagging. Also, I'm one update behind in hitfilm, so that could also be the case. I will try updating hitfilm and removing the mod launcher to see if any of the two stop the lag issue. I will reply if it works.
If anyone has an efficient solution, please tell me
