Choppy playback in viewer (FCE HD)

Did a quick search but didn't really find what I was looking for. I was using Final Cut Express HD yesterday for he first time and making a little movie out of clips shot from a canon digital camera (vga resolution, 30fps). Most of the time, the playback of video in the viewer window (not canvas) was choppy. I have a pretty decent Macbook. Is there some setting that I have to play with?

QUOTE Thanks
