Hi, so while working on Hitfilm 14 i'm noticing that no matter what i do, my preview gets extremely sluggish. For the record i'm using recordings from ShadowPlay (gaming videos) which were treated in Handbreak for turning em into Constant FPS videos and then transcoded from MP4 (h.264) in DNxHD to have a uncompressed file that could be used easily on Hitfilm... Problem is that i still get those issues of sluggish playback, especially when i start applying Chroma Key on some of the clips i have, in which case it drops frames all over the place even at 1/4 preview resolution.
For the record, nothing is running in the background and my hardware specs are:
- GTX 970 (4GB Vram)
- Ryzen 5 2600 3.5ghz
- 16 GB DDR4 Vengeance Ram (3000mhz)
- SSD 240 GB (Video files i'm working on are here)
- HDD 1.5 TB (Program is here)
- File format right now is: 1920x1080p DNxHD in .mov format
