Hal Wars 2 PC Cutscene Stutter

Playing on Windows 10 and am using an i5 3570k overclocked, 16GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM, GTX 1080, and an SSD. I loaded up skirmish to test performance and everything worked fine on the highest settings @4k. But when I started the campaign the opening cutscene audio and video stutters so badly that it is unwatchable. Which is weird as it is clearly a pre-rendered video. Anyone experience this and/or know of a fix. Trying to play this in preparation for Infinite.

Fixed the issue. For some reason turning on subtitles made the cutscenes run smoothly.
