I just built a new PC and everything is working well, except for this problem I having with Hitfilm Express. When I open a project in Hitfilm, my CPU usage goes to 100% even when I am not currently making any edits. Even if I close hitfilm, my CPU usage stays at 100% and I have to force-close a HitFilm task in my Task Manager. Interestingly, I was able to start exporting a project and that seemed to work just fine (CPU was around ~40-50% usage), so the problem seems to occur only when I open up a project in the editor.
If it matters, my pc is a 3700x Ryzen CPU, an RX 590 GPU, and 16GB RAM.
I have tried re-starting my computer several times and uninstalling/re-installing HE.
