Re: GoPro Fusion Studio 1.3 Crashing (High Memory Usage)

Not that I can tell. As far as I can tell, it's been an issue since release. Seems like GoPro has nixed the Fusion project. Maybe forever, or maybe until the Fusion 2 comes out? I wouldn't count on a fix though. It's still a great camera, just super buggy software.

Re: GoPro Fusion Studio 1.3 Crashing (High Memory Usage)

Im aware of those steps, I just wanted to know if GoPro actually made a fix. Its tedious having to pause the rendering process every time my RAM fills up to avoid the system crashing.
