Video clips on render and preview turning permanently grey at random

On the left is the rendered video (preview in-app looks the same) and on the right is the source material. I'm editing several clips together and occasionally when I click on/off the video footage in the editor it has a random chance to turn any of my clips permanently gray/foggy. Only fix that I can find is not saving, rebooting and hope the gray didn't make it into the save like it's some sort of virus. This is problematic as I have multiple clips from several source videos and me going back and forth from clip to clip to edit their placements is how I and a lot of others edit compilations.

I used to use an old version of Camtasia for mac, I decided to buy an upgraded license for my Windows PC a few days ago and it's become somehow even more unusable than Camtasia 2. Looking at old threads seems to do me no good either so rather than necro old threads I decided to make a separate one. Any modern solutions in 2019 to this problem?

If you have an Nvidia card? If so then hardware acceleration is broken, support suggests software only mode. I am using the Microsoft basic render driver. Sadly I am looking for a camtasia replacement as the issue is months old. One doesn’t buy a ti-card then get throttled by software that can’t use it.
