I am at my wits end. A friend of mine is delving into the wonderful word of video editing, however he's running into problems I can't figure out the cause of. You see, regardless of the editing program he uses, whenever he tries to scroll through a video to make his edits, he encounters frozen video that never unfreezes. It does it to him in professional software like vegas as well as free software like OpenShot and Kdenlive. Whatever software he uses, the moment he tries to skip through a timeline to make his edits....boom...video freezes and never unfreezes. Audio still plays, but never gets back that video.
Any idea why this might be happening? Not sure what to tell my friend... Here are his specs....
CPU: Intel i7 4790k
GPU: Nvidia GTX 760
16GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
256 GB Samsung SSD
WD Black 1TB HDD
Is it the video card? A codec problem? Any ideas?
