I'm getting on OK with this software, but the really annoying thing is how the preview window really lags and is pretty jumpy and inaccurate (in terms of usefulness for editing).

Any ideas for making this smoother, so I'm actually seeing what's going on? I'm pretty sure it's a fairly simple fix, but I'm not sure.

I'm running a PC with plenty RAM, and the videos turn out fine after rendering. It's just the view while editing which is a pain.

With the exception of doing RAM renders, the amount of RAM has very little to do with preview performance. What does make a difference is your CPU and graphics card so letting us know what those are will help us to help you.

I'm afraid I'm not sure. How do I find out?

I use a free utility called Speccy to get this information.
Here's the info on my internet machine running Windows 10.

Once you figure it out, please post screenshots/information on here.

Sorry for the delay but things are a wee bit hectic over the holidays :)
Your system isn't too bad but an i5 processor isn't ideal for editing HD footage which is what I assume you have on your timeline.
You didn't say what type of footage it is nor if you have any FX applied to anything.
My experience with an underpowered machine is to convert everything to a Vegas-friendly format. In my case that was Sony MXF. It still wasn't perfect but at least I could view it in Preview/Auto mode. Adding any FX to it still lowered performance though and I learned to live with it until I got a new more powerful system.

OK, thank you for that.
Yes, HD footage, a few effects, and large WAV sound files too (if that affects anything).
Looks as if I'll have to tolerate it until I can upgrade.
Thanks again.
