VideoStudio 2019 Poor Video Preview Quality

Hi, I'm new to video editing and wanted to give Corel Videostudio a try, among a couple of others I'm trying. I recently downloaded the 2019 trial version onto my Windows 10 laptop. When I preview video clips, the quality is horrible and I cannot figure out how to fix it (or if it's fixable). I will say the .mov clips seem to be better than the .mp4 clips, but still a little choppy (they look like stop motion videos). The attached picture is just a snippet of what the video (a .mp4 file) looks during preview. The clips play beautifully using either Quicktime or the default video player windows has to offer. They are 1920 x 1080 videos. The other video editing softwares don't seem to have to this problem so I'm really confused. I think I like the GUI of this SW better so I'm hoping this can be fixed or is a Trial verison problem? I've tried different settings under "Project Properties" and disabled and re-enabled smart proxy and I'm having no luck. Thanks for any help!

Hi,
I am also playing with a trial version of VS2019 and I have same issue.
Even video samples in VS2019 are problematic.

I am trying to move from Adobe Premiere Elements, tested lots of video editors and I had no issue at all with playback.
I would be happy to solve this problem as I am thinking of buying a bundle.

If your source video is of decent quality then there is an issue with the trial version as I've never seen such a distorted preview in the fully licensed version. I'd suggest purchasing a fully licensed version and see if the problem persists and if it does then Corel offers a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee (http://apps.corel.com/lp/wpox3/2413/pop.html) if you're dissatisfied with your purchase.

The Trial version is limited in functionality and does not offer complete file support or features, mp4 could be an affected feature

I have the same problem... Anyone found the solution?

I installed the trial version Video Studio 2019 and whatever video i load into the video track it is Choppy... Ive tried changing all settings. I am using an MP4 video file 1920 x 960. Ive matched the project settings to the video and still the same. Ive tried all other project settings and I've turned off and on hardware/software acceleration and nothing changes. (Plus restarted many times)

I decided to try another software Hitfilm Free to see if it was my PC and this worked perfectly. All HD quality. I really want to use Corel but this problem is driving me crazy. Ive updated all drivers/changes settings in windows and the software and can't work it out.

is it the trial only? Anyone else had any problem and then tried the pay version?

Unfortunately, this would appear to be a limitation of the trial version, have you tried enabling Smart Proxy
Here is a snapshot taken from the full version of VS2019, the video in the timeline is 3840x2160 25fps, HEVC_UHD_MP4
The video itself plays without any stutter or distortion

You can try the full version and if not satisfied with the results, can claim a full refund, providing the claim is made within 30 days of purchase
