Movie Studio 13 Freeze during editing

I have decided to run a trial of MS 13 because my MS 11 kept freezing while editing. I assumed it was because of my older HP PC. I purchased a new HP Envy with more than enough guts to run video editing software. Now, during my trial of MS 13 I am still freezing during the editing process. This is getting very frustrating as you can imagine. What might be causing this problem?

What are the specs of your computer, in terms of type of processor (clock speed and cores don't mean much any more) and RAM load.

Also, what model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it?

And what are your Movie Studio Video Project Settings? Do they match your video specs?

What media type are you editing, and what is the source of the media? You may have a codec issue.

Hi - thanks for responding.
Processor: Intel (R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.41GHz
RAM: 16 GB
File format: GoPRO MP4
I do not know the resolution. I also couldn't find the project settings so that could be the issue. I hope this is enough information to take the next step.

What build is the trial?

I'm not sure if QuickTime is needed for GP files but what version do you have.

What Windows OS? 32 or 64 bit?

64 bit OS. I'm not using QuickTime. I'm using a "video" app that came with Windows 10.

The build of the software is Version 13.0 build 955. I also had this same issue with Version 11, which is software that I purchased.

Most likely you will need to install QuickTime. It is generally thought that version 7.7.6 for Windows, is the most stable to use (not the latest 7.7.8).

download a free temp measuring app for you computer. Lots of times stopping during rendering is an overheating problem.

I figured out my own issue it seems. The GOPRO file formats need to be converted to an .avi file. Gopro has a free download converter that was simple and intuitive. So far so good.

Good and thanks for coming back.
Did you happen to do a "Search"?
