Using Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13 on Windows 10, the output movie freezes at random points or has glitches/artifacts within the rendered movie file. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get a reliable output movie?

1 Answer 1


I have found the following to work:

  1. Restart the PC

  2. Reset Movie Studio settings to default by:

    • Hold down Ctrl and Shift when starting program
    • When the software starts to load, a window asks, Do you want to reset all program preferences to default? Select Yes.
    • Make sure to tick the checkbox, Delete all cached application data.
  3. Deleting all .sfk files can also help with problem projects

  4. The default MP4 and AVCHD files seem to be pretty reasonable quality, and less error-prone.
