I recently upgraded to Hitfilm Pro 14 and although I would not have thought it possible, the stability is even worse than ever. My project is just a simple edit containing about 300Gb of video, no transitions and very few effects aside from colour correction. Crashes happen at inexplicable times totally at random and far too often. The only consistent crash I get is when I exit the program where it crashes every single time. If I try and send the crash report, that fails with a network error. I know the list of usual suspects that can cause issues like this and none are true for me. My files are all transcoded to DNxHD/HR, my video card drivers are up to date, no antivirus running you name it and it is as it should be. I work on this project on my desktop and my laptop, and although the hardware is different the problem is the same, Hitfilm. I buy Hitfilm because I can't stand the idea of rental software but I'm going to have to decide if I hate fighting with unstable software more.
I'm frustrated and venting because this is becoming a blood pressure raising creativity killer for me.
