I'm having trouble with playback from the timeline into the canvas. When the playback moves through a cut there is lag, and it makes it impossible to get a feel for where the cut actually is.
I'm running the video from the system HD, and I'm fully aware that could be the source of the problem. But I'm wondering if there are other settings that could be affecting performance. I would really love not to have to get a firewire external if possible.
