A couple of things on latest Hitfilm 14:
1) starting HT and loading a project: the timeline, which has focus, wont respond to keyboard commands - e.g. spacebar for playback, "home"/"pageUp"/"pageDown" keys for navigating. One has to make the viewer active then return to make the timeline active and things are then all-good. A minor thing.
2) this might be an old bug but is a real nasty one. If you load a project and any required fonts are not installed it doesn't indicate in any way I can see what fonts are missing. The text objects themselves happily say that they're "Arial" (or whatever your system default may be presumably). If you don' t have a separate record of what fonts you were using you'll be screwed. As a graphic designer I have thousands of font and use a font manager to load/unload them as needed (to avoid horrid system slowdowns etc.). Thankfully I store copies of font files with individual projects, but I reckon many people wouldn't take such an approach, and even then I'd have to recall which fonts were used in which instances. I've not tested what would happen if you saved a project that had missing fonts - i.e. does it then lose any link to the original typefaces? If it hasn't been re-saved and you install the correct fonts then Hitfilm picks them up OK when you next load the .hpf file.
