I am trying various quality settings, but I can't seem to stop playback from stuttering through transitions - especially hard cuts. 4K timeline/4k footage. It plays smoothly "once it gets going" - but I get the dreaded "..." under frames when I hit hard cuts (which makes tweaking them very difficult). My card is a Nvidia 1060 6G. It does the same thing whether or not I send to an external monitor. If I start at the head of the new clip, it plays back fine. It's almost like it's doing some weird caching or something.
I searched around and saw reference to a lightning bolt icon "below the preview monitor" but I don't see it. Any help would be appreciated.
I've updated display driver and the most recent build of VP17.
