    Choppy display when playing timeline CS5, please help.

    Steve from NY Level 1

      I am going crazy with this one. I have 2 x Samsung SyncMaster [Monitor]  (25.5") & my playback of the TL is always very stroby, especial HD video.


      These are all single layer playback video, nothing stacked, with no effects added!


      HD Yellow bar footage playback...Very Stroby

      HD Red bar footage playback.....Very-Very Stroby

      HD No bar footage....Very Stroby


      When I add slomotion %50 to any of these clips it looks even more terrible on my Samsungs


      DV footage playback....MUCH better just a tiny bit stroby (looks like every other field playback)


      I  have tryed displaying 1st field, 2nd field, both fields & all are  terrible with any HD footage, rendered or not but the rendered does  playback a little better.



      Is it my videocard?   Monitors?   Processor speed?
