Set quality for playback

I created a 2 min video in version 9 with 1080hd footage. It was very stable (thank you so much !). The playback is ok but I think it would be good to have the possibility to set the playback quality. Sometime we want to fix details or timing and don't need full quality. This would makes previewing smoother. A simple dropdown Under the canvas  : quality playback : 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%

100% agree and a good idea.

I use other programs for most of my more intensive video editing work. Reducing the quality of playback comes in very handy. Adobe has had this feature for a very long time and I use it often.

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month (this month is slightly different, due to the holidays) where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
