Re: Quik just keeps crashing Windows 10

Hello @xocrnod. Have you been able to perform the recommended steps on this thread? Crashing mostly happens in computers running multiple graphics cards, and Quik for desktop is prioritizing the high performance. See if the troubleshooting steps here  will help resolve the crashes in Quik.

Re: Quik just keeps crashing Windows 10

I don't use the Quik desktop app for making videos, but I do use the Quik mobile app frequently. If you like Quik style videos, I strongly suggest using the mobile app. It has way more options, features, and is much more stable. For desktop editing, I use Premiere Pro, but there are many free options as well. If you don't already have a desktop editor (BTW, Windows still has a version of Movie maker built into Windows 10 but it's hidden in the pictures viewer), then you might want to try one of these:
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve
VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/

Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/

Re: Quik just keeps crashing Windows 10

Has anyone found a realiable resolution to the Win10 Quik Desktop crashes?  I have been fighting this issue for months, and I even purchased a new $4K editing station with the latest everything (e.g. RTX2070, i7-9700K, 64GB RAM, SSD's, etc).  BTW... Quik still says that my machine doesn't support HEVC... huh?

 

All of the work-arounds for Quik fail immediately or eventually, and the only short-term resolution is to uninstall and reinstall the Quik Desktop app... this works for a while until I have to repeat the vicious cycle.  I can edit the raw camera footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, but the only way to get the gauges is via the Quik app.  GoPro only offers this app for managing their cameras, and they force you to run Win10... is there any intention of fixing these glaring problems with the software?

Re: Quik just keeps crashing Windows 10

Yo tambien tenia el mismo problema, la aplicacion se cerraba ni bien adjuntaba algun video para comenzar la edicion, lo di por muerto, un dia tuve que formatear mi PC, la diferencia es q ahora cree/utilice un nombre de usuario sin espacios, mi usuario administrador de la PC, no realice ningun cambio de hardware, nada de permisos sobre mi usuario administrador, todo lo mismo pero por azares del destino instale Quik y ahora la aplicacion funciona a las mil maravillas, ridiculo, si, funciona, tambien, decepcionante, totalmente, espero te sirva
