The latest version 18.03.06 has quite a major bug on Windows 7 64bit OS. I’ve reproduced this a couple of times now, shotcut goes crazy after closing with a mlt file open in it and starts leaking memory and remains an active process if you bring up Task Manager. I discovered it as I heard my hard drive go crazy and saw it using 2,000,000K and rising.
Steps to reproduce:
- Close the editor, with an open file via the red x in the top right corner saving change when shotcut asks.
- Observe Shotcut disappears from the Windows task bar
- Open Task Manager using Control+Alt+Delate
Shotcut will still be active in the task manager and increasing it’s memory use
It doesn’t occur, if you close the active.mlt file via the drop down menu File > Close and shut down shotcut then when you just have a new unedited untitled file open or if you just open then close shutcut. As soon as you load in a .mlt file that’s when the issue happens.
