Despite the lack of detail I think I'm experiencing the same issue in Movie Studio Platinum 16. I can retrieve my media (1080p mp4 recorded with OBS studio) and begin to edit, however at some point during the process my entire PC will "lock up" - sometimes resulting in a blue screen, sometimes resulting in just a frozen system that requires a manual restart. If there's audio playing the audio might even get stuck and play the same sound until I restart.
This only happens in Movie Studio Platinum (no other programs) and at this point I cannot edit anything. I'm concerned there's been a Win 10 upgrade or something that's causing an issue, as I've upgraded all my drivers and tried 3 different hard drives including an SSD just to make sure there wasn't a read/write issue.
I am also experiencing Movie Studio 16 Platinum going into "Not Responding" mode. And the only way to get it out of that is by force closing Movie Studio. It's a VERY busy time of the year for a wedding DJ like myself and I need to edit videos for upcoming weddings. So this is EXREMELY inconvenient!! As wedding season is still in full swing!
In a video I made for wedding in the beginning of this month, Movie Studio would not render some of the Transition Effects I had selected (to match the music), it was very frustrating as I spent a lot of time on trying to figure why they wouldn't render on the final video....So I ended up going back and selecting very simple CROSSFADE Transitions....not what I had envisioned for that high energy video.
Now, the couple for an upcoming wedding decided on doing a slide show for their first dance. That wedding is this Friday... and now Movie Studio keeps going into "Not Responding". And it happens unpredictably... this last time I had simply stopped the video, and it went Non Responsive.
I have other Music Producing (DAW), DJing and Photo Editing Software on my computer which is a QUAD CORE i7 laptop, and I do not have any issues AT ALL with any other programs, even when I run them simultaneously. I run Movie Studio ALONE.
Would anyone know if there is a Software update I need to run? Someone please help!!
Same here - Happens CONSTANTLY. I'm hitting "ctrl+s" (save) about every 20 seconds after every single change I make.. Also no GPU acceleration on timeline no matter what I do. Same performance with it on or off. Seems Movie Studio 16 is a very unstable program and barely works at all, and buggy as hell.
