Vegas Movie Studio SUITE lagging in preview

Previously I was using Movie Studio 15, and I unfortunately upgraded to Version 16.

With the new Version, the preview during editing and cutting videos, is extremely lagging. It is not fun, to cut movies at all. Its the same machine with the same OS.

I regret upgrading to version 16.

What can I do to enhance speed and flow?

Strange. Do you still have VMS15 installed? If so I'd go through all the Preferences to make sure I had both 15 and 16 set the same.

Unfortunately, I've deleted version 15 already.

With Version 15 I've already cut 4K videos with 60fps.

Verison 16 can't even handle the preview for full hd only, and its totally annoying 😒

Fortunately, if you wanted you could download v. 15 e.g. from your Magix Account and install. See point 3 here.

And have you inspected this FAQ already?

@lespaul You haven't given details of your pc specs but I wonder if it's something simple like you don't have gpu processing turned on. Check in the General and Video tabs of Prefences to check.
