Open Shot - Speeding up editing playback

Speeding up OpenShot editing playback 

This is a common problem.  Playback video is stuttering, jerky, slow.
This is really due to the amount of processing the machine needs to do with video, especially if you are layering components like titles and effects.  Its not so much that your machine is slow, these codecs are just not perfect.

If you are suffering from this problem, the most effective way to reduce the 'editing' video quality level.  This won't affect the end product, it will just alter the way your video is rendered while you edit it.

Selecting the "Profile" button will bring up the profile list

Simply select a lower bit rate item in the PROFILE list.

This value is set to a very low setting, which, in many cases, will speed up the processing of videos.  Find one that works best for you.

When completed and ready to export the final product, change the profile back to its original setting.
