Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum Kunena Site Syndication Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:39:26 +0000 Kunena 1.6 Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum en-gb project frame rate - by: madstork
When creating a project for these files, what is the recommended frame rate?

I find the whole topic quite hard to parse - when to use 59.94 versus 60.

Thank you.]]>

Exporting is taking an incredibly long time - by: MrGuyAwesome
The export of a video is taking a very very long time, for example it normally takes 30 minutes max for a 10 minute long video, but it's currently been over an hour and it's maybe 10% of the way through? It's going so slowly it may even have just stopped the export.

AND A8-550M APU Elite Quad Core with Radeon HD 8550G + 7670 Dual Graphics

Thanks for any help]]>

No Audio After Import - by: peschkaj
I've installed a few different encoders/decoders after reading about issues with AC3 and other formats, so I wanted to cover all my bases.

The video is flawless after an import (link) into Lightworks, but there is no audio at all on the imported clip.

Mediainfo output is below:

Hardware is a Lenovo W540 with an Intel I7-4700MQ, 32GB memory, and an NVidia Quadro K2100M.

Any advice/guidance would be great. Even if it is just "What you want is impossible, re-record your video with a camcorder."

Importing jpeg vids only through converting to 'mp4'? - by: robinb23
The only way so far i've found to edit my videos made with a Nicon Coolpix cam is by converting them to mp4 files.

However this is lenghty and sloppy. Is there a direct way to edit jpeg movies in LightWorks? Through settings or...?
If i try to upload them directly i get on error.

Thanks ahead]]>

[AVI - DVCPRO] [Linux] Importing works fine, audio is displayed, but video isn't - by: avoloreloxop It's because of this that I decided to start a new topic.

Adobe Premiere has been my editor of choice (for stuff at home) for a while, but the computer running it was very old so I decided to upgrade it to Lightworks.
I have captured a lot of SD footage from a JVC GY-DV5000 through the FireWire port, footage I captured using Adobe Premiere's Capture plugin.

In the old system I also had an analoge Dazzle DVC100 (at least that is what Linux tells me it is) installed for capturing analogue video.
Since it's a Pinnacle product I guess working with it in Lightworks is probably impossible (haven't tried it yet).

Lightworks (which works superstable like nothing else I have ever used on Linux) can read both the AVI files created by Adobe and Pinnacle, I don't get any error.

For some reason though, the AVI files from Pinnacle do not display video at all (the audio works fine though, funny enough).
I also tested exporting the file that does not display video and it also doesn't show up in the exported file.

This is the media-info report from a Pinnacle generated AVI file:

This is the Media-info report from an Adobe generated AVI file:

In this case, I think it's useful to note that (on my quest for the least-memory-consuming Linux distribution) I'm not using one of the supported Linux distributions (Ubuntu/Mint and Fedora).
I use an adapted Ubuntu distribution called "Linux Lite".
For what it's worth: Synaptic doesn't make note about ubuntu-restricted-extras being installed, if I should install that, please say so (I couldn't find it on the forum.)

Because I can not play AVI files, I have not yet activated Lightworks (upgrading to a PRO version doesn't do anything for most of the importable extensions of files, if I review the FAQ on this, but please correct me if I'm wrong!).

I thank anyone in advance for a possible solution.]]>

just came across this wonderful piece of software which I wanted to use to cut my holiday footage. However it seems like I cannot import my native Lumia 930 videos.

Should I just convert them all or is there an "easier" way?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Importing image without background layer - by: vincentrok
Before, I used to create some original titles with Photoshop, and importing them in Premiere. Premiere allows to import jpg, png or gif files without background.
When I try to import these files to Lightworks, it doesn't work, the background is black, and ofcourse you cannot see the track behind.
Do you have a solution ?
Lightworks title effects are very poor.]]>
