Default Video engine hanging up

I've been doing a lot more film scoring lately, and of course it's way easier if I can input video clips to score to. When I import a video into Pro Tools, though, most of the time my session gets borked. It doesn't take long before my session hangs up big-time whenever I'm opening OR closing it. Even when I delete the video file from the session, Pro Tools still looks for it and slows everything to a crawl or just breaks down entirely.

I fell down the internet rabbit hole today searching for alternatives, and the only thing I could find that sounded promising was Video Slave. Unfortunately, it's only for Mac and I have a PC.

Any advice for either fixing this problem, or for a slave program I can use to sync to Pro Tools?

My specs are:
Windows 10, Intel i7-8700 3.20 GHz, 6 cores, 32 GB RAM, SSD, running Pro Tools 2018.12.0.
