    Ever since upgrading to FCP5 I've had an issue in the preview window.

    When I first double click a dv file it opens in the first pane on the right, the preview window where you can insert in and outs. When I play in this window the footage is jerky and often skips, when I place it in the timeline though it runs perfectly.

    It's native DV and doest require rendering, in FCP 4.5HD it never did this, so why now?

    I've tried a lot of changes in the setup menus but to no avail, any ideas anyone?

    I'm running the latest version of Tiger and all updates for FC studio. Machine is a dual 2ghz Powermac,

    It's driving me nuts!

    I've noticed something interesting, it seems the only dv footage that skips is footage I pulled from my old DV cam which I sold last year. Newer footage from my friends camera doesnt skip at all. What the hell is going on?
