MEP plus 2022 freezing

I have MEP edit pro plus 2022 installed on a PC and have used successfully many times but now when I attempt to build a movie I can only get 1 or 2 steps in after downloading videos into timeline before the program freezes up and wont respond to any curser movements and I'm forced to log out without saving project to try again with similar results. Is it the program or my computer?...any guesses?

First suggestion - open MicroSoft Task Manager and watch what happens to the disk drive that has the videos that you want to import. Import 1 at a time. If it freezes, watch to see if a hard disk goes to 100%. Wait for several minutes to see if it comes back. If it does, then your problem is probably video files that the program doesn't like.

After that, please post (best to add to your signature) details about your computer system and operating system. See my signature for an idea.

Then, look at the files that you are importing. Where are they from - your camera, screen recordings, other?

You will be asked to get, install Media Info and post the details of one or more of the video files that may be causing problems. See this tutorial for details.

Under Program Settings, Device options tab, what are your settings for Hardware Acceleration under Import, Processing, Export? Try other options.

Okay, thank you very much for your response. I will look into what you've suggested. I am also curious as to why I haven't been prompted to create proxy files when importing media...does this version not require proxy files?

That very much depends upon the specifications and capabilities of your computer hardware! So, for you, proxy files may be necessary. The program CAN create them when you import a file but it is not automatic.

So, as @browj2 asked, please give us ALL the information John requested.
