Is it really fast when you play back as a preview render in VisionLab, or is it fast after rendering to a new video file and then playing back outside of VisionLab?

Did you happen to look at this article in the knowledgebase? It explains why your clip may be too fast, and how to correct it. there are several reasons, though it is almost always a result of incorrect project settings, as is discussed further there.

it's when i have rendered my project and i view it in my media player or video editor, its fine in effects lab. And yes i have read that and its not helping. But that's not my only problem, the video is also stuttering a lot. i will be uploading an example so you can see what i'm talking about

Well, I don't see it going too fast anywhere in that clip.

As far as the stuttering, that is most likely due to your source clip being in an inappropriate codec, like some variant of h.264 or something, rather than a proper intermediate codec designed for editing purposes. It also looks like your interlacing field order could be the wrong way round. Convert your footage to a better codec prior to importing it to VisionLab, make sure your field order is correct, and you'll be fine.

What format and codec is your original footage in? And what video editor are you using? With that info, we can offer more specific suggestions as to codecs and whatnot.

As I mentioned, knowing what format your footage is is will make a difference in what codec I would suggest. There isn't one single codec that should always be used, it depends on the situation. That's why there are choices.

I could recommend a DV codec, but if your footage is in HD, that won't help much. I could recommend Quicktime Animation codec, but if you need to work in .AVI, that won't help either.

Then I'd recommend converting to a DV-AVI codec.
