OK, I decided to post this because couldn't find any mention about it elsewhere in the forums.


Does anybody have sound-stuttering problems when editing in Openshot?


I was about to create a video consisting of a sound track and ten or eleven photos.
As soon as I try to preview it, the sound starts stuttering -BADLY-, if I go and run htop I notice that the CPU usage is around 204% (??), cheech!, I even have problem to close the application.


The CPU-hogging issue occurs only when there is a soundtrack., it doesn't occur with photos only.


Oh, and the visual appearance of the software GUI is totally messed-up. I blamed it on the version that installs from LiteSoftware, so I went directly to the Openshot web, and downloaded both the Appimage (same issues) and also installed from the PPA (same issues).
I tried to install an older version (2.2.x) and -although the GUI looks fine-, the suttering problem is still there.


I'm desperate, as none of the alternative software I could find fills my expectations. I'm this far from going back and reinstall a backup image that I have of my old LL 3.8 installation (oh, those happy times!).


All the pertinent current info can be seen on my profile (left-hand side of your screen).


Thank you in advance.
Pathological tweaker, I used to distro-hop (A LOT)   ...until I installed LinuxLite.
