I was wondering if anyone could help with a recent file importing problem I am having. The files are from a Sony A7SII.

Using xavc-s, files recorded at 50p[50] (the 50fps, 50M setting) are imported without issue.

However, I cannot seem to import xavc-s files recorded at 100p[100] (the 100fps, 100M setting), whether I have a project set to a specific frame rate, or the Auto setting. Each time, Lightworks indicates an issue with the framerate, stating that it is "48 kHZ", rather than a figure for fps.

I have attached screen captures of the Lightworks' import error indicator; the video file's information from MediaInfo; and a look at the settings used on the A7SII.

Any help would be appreciated.]]>

I'm trying to import or copy different edits from 30fps and 25fps projects to a 24 fps project.

I found no way to do this with proper results.

Checked move edit, move bin and import edit from archives without success. The results show corrupt cut point entries (Primary T/C shift) or timeshift between audio and video and some missing transitions.

Is it generally possible to import existing non-24fps edits to a 24fps project?

Is there anybody who has done this successfully?

Any advice truly appreciated.]]>

What you see is not what you get - Matte keyframe animation on Preview vs Export - by: Purgatoriant
I've got a bit of an issue which I fail to understand. I've repeated the same edit a couple of times and the way I've done the "watermark"/Fade -track (DVE with the company logo as foreground and a solid black matte which produces the fades to the beginning and the end of the video) seems to be the source of my woes.

Here's the jist of it... The edit on Lightworks looks just fine but as I export it, the key frame animation (transparency) on the matte fades in way too late and fades out way too early.

Edit: 0s - 32s
Export: 32s onwards

The edit has nothing particularly fancy on it, as you can see (assuming that the video actually shows... can't test it for there is no preview button on the forums), and the rendering doesn't cap any available system resources. Drivers should also be more or less up to date.

Any ideas? Am I just a bit of a dum dum (which would be nothing new) or is this a legitimate bug? I think I know how to to work my way around this, but it would still be nice to know what's up with this. If for the sake of nothing else, then out of sheer academical interest.]]>

[Solved-ish] I am in need of clear instructions for Import and Export projects. - by: JiwKen
I am very new to LightWorks. I may sound very cheap but this is one of the best software with necessary functions in the free version. I decided to use this because of my Science project. Today, I was going to get my things edited and organised and all I have to do is export the project (Not the video) and move it to my laptop. I exported it and went to my laptop, imported the archive and it says media files are missing almost all of them. Do I have to change all the audio, video and jpeg names to the original one or is there something I did wrong? Please help D:

My science performance task is due tomorrow which is today midnight]]>

EXPORT LIST - 23.98 & 23.976fps - by: VinceEFX
I contacted LW's tech support and asked about 23.98 and 23.976 and was told they are the same (23.976 rounded off to 23.98). However, I noticed in the LWs export list both 23.98 and 23.976 are listed. If they are the same, why have the two fps listed?

Although I am in the motion picture industry x 40 years (IATSE local 44), I am not a techy guy, so much appreciated if you can explain in simple terms - thanks!

A Noob here Trying to Transcode .MOV 4K PAL Footage with no luck - by: Oddshot
I can import it and it will play in a source viewer but only with a pause every second or so.

The footage is 4K PAL 25fps D-log @ 60Mbs coming from the X3 camera on a DJI Inspire 1 UAV.

I have tried some other footage with the same specs except it is NTSC, and it seems to play with only a slight hesitation.

The footage has been moved to an SSD drive, my system is a Win10 64bit, i7 4770K, 16GB, NVIDIA 660 Video Card.

I have tried to transcode the footage in LW but get an error referring to the CODECs expecting broadcast size or something.

Currently I am transcoding a clip to a proxy using the DJI Transcoding Tool, but it is taking it's sweet time on a 500MB clip (most of the clips are 1GB+).

Could the fact that this is PAL footage be causing my woes? Or am I not doing something correctly in the import/transcode steps?

Thanks! for any suggestions you experienced Lightworkers might have, and I look forward to learning more about LW as well as have great hopes that it will be my long term solution for occasionally renting Adobe PP

PS: VLC plays the footage smoothly right off the SD card
