“I am having continual crashes with HitFilm 4 Pro. All my footage is 4K from a Panasonic Lumix GH4. I have an hour of footage loaded into HitFilm, and I currently cannot even load the project without it crashing. You can see that it is having trouble by looking at the wave forms in the audio files. The wave forms break up. Does anyone have a suggestion of what to do?”
Why HitFilm 4 Pro crashing with 4K footage?
Panasonic Lumix GH4 can record 4K video in MOV and MP4 formats. But If you recorded MOV then the lack of Quicktime is killing you. And only MP4 (AVC/H264 & AAC) is supported by HitFilm 4 Pro. So when you editing 4K videos with HitFilm 4 Pro, you may encounter the “crashing” issues. For some 4K formats like 4K XAVC, 4K ProRes, 4K MTS, 4K MP4, 4K MOV, HitFilm 4 Pro can't accept them well. Besides, the problem is not bad with 1080p footage in HitFilm 4 Pro. But with 4K footage, it is a real problem that I would love to be able to solve.
