Whenever i edit my videos hitfilm runs great with no problems and the playback is also great, the problem becomes apparent once i have 2 or more layers playing at once (here is what i mean:https://ibb.co/q9tv8Dq) the playback is extremely terrible, in fact so terrible that it spits out only 1 frame every few seconds, when 1 layer at a time is playing everything works fine, 60fps full res playback.
Here's some info that might be relevant:
Operating System: Latest version of Windows 10 Home
The Layers are in a composite shot, the composite shot is 1080 60fps
the video files are 1080p 60fps .mp4
My system: (specs and % utilised when the problem occurs)
32GB, 3200mhz, cas 16 RAM - 5GB utilised when the problem occurs
AMD Ryzen 7 3700x 8 core cpu running at 4,4GHz when necessary - 5% utilisation when problem occurs
NVidia RTX 2070 Super videocard/GPU with 8GB VRAM (overclocked) - Video decode 100% utilisation
1TB m.2 nvme ssd with read and write speeds of over 1500MB/s - 0% utilisation
My Hitfilm max RAM utilisation in settings is set at 25GB
I gathered aforementioned information from taskamanager, no other programs were running during testing.
As far as i know i have the latest drivers installed. The hitfilm express version is also the latest
When one layer is playing the video runs smoothly and the GPU is being used only 13%
Why do just 2 layers make the GPU usage over 7 times higher?
I should also note that when a cut happens and im running the playback it just freezes for a second and then runs fine again (https://ibb.co/gV9xQmr)
Is this a problem with my hardware or can hitfilm somehow be optimized to run better?
(If necessary i can record what happens when i edit, so let me know!)
