as I understand from other posts here, CS is not optimized for capturing games; maybe Fraps? [I don't do games, don't have Win 8]

but some details that might help here ...

what was dimension of capture?

what are editing dimensions in project? how long is the project? what edits do you make to project?

is the laggy seen on produced video [render out of the editor]? what production specs do you use; output file type? what are dimensions used for final video production?
