    Having issues with the video stuttering/lagging in the preview monitor when editing on the timeline. My question is what is causing this and how do I fix? Is this hard drive or graphics related problem? This does not occur if I load the project in vegas 14.

    My system: I7 -9700KF, 32 GB Ram, NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 ti 4 GB ram, project is running off HDD.

    Your Computer Specs is slightly higher than mines but it all depends if you have several other high RAM/CPU demanded apps running in the background alone. Have you tried running Sony Vegas and nothing else to see if that helps? It often does lag a bit whenever I play the preview, mostly affecting video but not much audio in comparison. If you also have a web browser like google chrome open, it could be a cause of lag too just because Chrome often takes a large CPU percentage to run and has many processes behind it. So try finding background apps you do not use and close them to see if it improves performance a bit more.
