Problems with audio, probably sampling rate - by: bobsbarricades@
Anyway the other thread solved a problem with importing video because they were different frame rates. We changed the project frame rate from Auto to 24 and I had access to all my clips.

However, when the project was on Auto I could import my temp MP3 of music for the music video I wanted to play around with. When I switched to 24 the import didn't work. SO I rebounced it as 48kHz just to make sure...but same problem. Instead of 24 minutes of music it's about 16 of chipmunk tunes...which is funny...but not cool =/

I should note that in the preview window it even plays fine, it's just when I insert it into the timeline that it goes wonky which makes me feel like it's just a timeline setting I can't find.

How do I go about fixing this? Thanks!]]>

formats that work in free version? h.264 sometimes works sometimes doesn't - by: bobsbarricades@
So obviously some didn't work because of this h.264 unsupport but what would this one work?

And then why would the following NOT work?

And finally, what should I do to ensure they ALL work? Should I just batch encode them to something else outside of lightworks or can lightworks do that for me? What would be the optimal file format to enode things to for lightworks?

Thanks for your help and time!]]>

YouTube exporting - by: Vellamo Codecs / Importing / Exporting / Transcoding Thu, 21 May 2015 12:11:47 +0000 Exports Out of Sync and Low Quality - by: SMART EMS
1. The exported video is very low quality.
2. Some of the audio is out of sync. But it is out of sync in a very weird way. Person A is in sync, person B is out of sync, so is person C, Person D is back in sync, etc. And whenever a person is played, he or she is either always in sync or always out of sync. I don't understand why the clips would be different, since they were all shot on the same day, with the same camera, at the same frame rate.

This has happened every time I have tried to export (which has been a lot).
One possible reason I have thought of is that the video was unfortunately shot in 20 fps, which Lightworks doesn't recognize. I had to slow the clips down to 83.333%, and maybe it is getting confused.

When the video was uploaded to YouTube, it was (unsurprisingly) the same as the messed up export. But surprisingly, whenever I import the video into a new Lightworks project, it is perfect. It is once again high quality video, and everything is in sync. I do not understand why, since it is reading off of the very clip that was messed up!

I also tried exporting to DVD style, but the entire audio was extremely fast, so even more out of sync. Then I tried .MOV, but, although the video was lovely, the file was 50 GB (quite a bit for an 8 minute short, so it must have contained more than I thought).

Does anyone know of a solution to my problems? Thanks!]]>

Exporting - 1080@60fps - by: ballistics
I've used the free version for a bit and find using the software to be a comfortable experience. I've always used the Youtube (H.264/MP4) with rate at 60fps and size at 720p format for my uploads. The quality is still great while keeping the space usage to a minimum.

I thought I'd try the 1 month pro license to be able to export at 1080@60 fps. I purchased it a few hours ago but I can't seem to set it to 1080@60. Any tips?

Please note I'm not too savvy with with editing terms or editing itself.

Thank you]]>

May it be caused by the fact, that I use the free Version?

Importing image sequences won't play on viewer - by: cayeya
I'm trying to test with some image sequences rendered in 3ds max at 720 resolution. I imported them with ' Detect image-sequences' turned 'On'. The problem is when I double click them/space bar them/ or add the sequence clips to timeline I can't make them play, sometimes is shows few frames before the playback freezes out for a minute or so and then if I try to stop or click somewhere else lightworks crashes, sometimes it just crashes without showing any other frame than the first one (I think frozen time depends on how long the sequence is). I tested with video files and playback runs flawless, but not with image sequences.

Do I miss something or it's a known bug? Any suggestion would be really appreciated.]]>

Rerunning incorrect analysis - by: kobyov
Original (incorrect) post below


Are there any file size limitation on AVCHD import files in Lightworks 12.0.2 x64 Free? I have a bunch of files created in OBS, two of which will not import and come up in the importer as '16-bit'. Those two files are 2.48Gb and 3.1Gb, all others are <2Gb. All files play normally in VLC. Attached are mediainfo reports for both working and non-working files, in case there's something else I'm missing.]]>

Failure to export video; audio only exported - by: sagronek
I am exporting my edit, choosing different codecs and frame-rates, but the result is the same...I get a file with audio only, and sometimes at a different speed than the edit itself. I suspect it is related to the original format of the clip that the edit is using, but I'm having trouble determining what it should be. How can I determine the frame-rate of the orignal clip, and what export frame-rates and format, compression, etc., should I choose (and avoid!) to be sure everything is exported as intended?]]>

Transcoded file optins - by: tedbar
Please point me to a source that I can study up a bit on the options that Lwks offers.

Also a number of Pros talk about converting to Prores and then working with the file. Is this done externally ? Or do one or more of the Lwks options result in Prores? Is there a good reason to use Prores?

Thanks in advance.]]>
