Tool that re-conforms sound edit to visual edit - by: mrlimbic
I am now adding support for XMEML which means it should also work with Lightworks and Premier.

It is very powerful tool that can even re-conform the sound edit to a later visual edit. It also colour codes all the changes to make them very easy to see.

I would appreciate donations of some XML exports from Lightworks users for testing. The longer and more complex the projects the better.

They will only be used for private testing and I don't need the media at this stage, just XMLs. A screenshot of the timeline also helps as it makes it easy to see if the result is a plausible translation.

Looking for a DivX editor - by: StephanieMitchell789
I did read the stickies and tried searching the forum for an answer using this site's search function as well as using google to search the site.

My request is simple but I expect that the answer won't be:

I am looking for a video editor to chop the "bad words" out of DivX-encoded AVIs so my young kids can watch them. The AVIs are typically about a gig in size, about 90 minutes long.

I tried a trial of Premiere Pro. It will import DixX natively, which is great. However, at the 20 minute mark, the audio-video sync is off. At 40 minutes in, it's unwatchable.

Hours painstakingly nudging the audio/video scenes results in a watchable clip, but I really didn't want to invest 10 hours into each clip.

So I am hoping to find someone who has experience editing DixX files who can tell me if lightworks can be of use to me here. I'd be happy to buy the most expensive version if it will go what I want.

I have been told that DivX doesn't make a great imput format, or something like that. That's great but that's what I have to work with. Maybe there is a good converter that will change the files into something editable by lightworks?

Any help would be soooo very much appreciated.]]>

[SOLVED] Awaiting Rendered Media - by: jimbobur Codecs / Importing / Exporting / Transcoding Tue, 03 Mar 2015 01:54:05 +0000 Choppy Video - Transcoding [SOLVED] - by: bottleman
I'm new to video editing (and video lingo) so all of your help/advice regarding my issue is greatly appreciated. I just started using a GoPro Hero 4 Black (4k/1080p/30 frames per second) and these videos are choppy when I play them in Lightworks Pro, a problem I was not having before with my GoPro Hero 3+ Silver (also 4k).

I was told by a Lightworks webteam member that the solution would be to transcode to a more edit-friendly format. How would I go about doing this? Below is information on my computer (which is in great shape) and the video files I'm having trouble with:

OS: Windows 7, 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU

Video Files I'm having issues with:
Camera: GoPro Hero 4 Black
Video Features: 4K, 1080p, 30 frames/second
File Type: mp4

Thanks in advance for help!!]]>

Problem in prores file with 4ch audio - by: nrebelo
I'm having a problem importing some ProRes files.
They have 4ch audio but it's importing with 6ch, and the channels 4-6 are all messed up.

I have imported some other files in the past and they work fine.

Anyone has an idea of what it could be?

How to export multiple clips in a project to ONE video - by: lianeh
I have a project with multiple video clips in it. I want to export them as ONE video. No matter what I try, it keeps exporting each clip individually.

What am I missing? Do I need to somehow merge them before I export?]]>

[SOLVED] Export problem- gamma levels too high - by: Dan Huppert
Most recently I tried a YUYV, which I'm able to watch with VLC Player, but no luck (same washed out look). Incidentally, if I adjust my VLC Player to adjust the image settings, lowering the gamma fixes it. But that doesnt really help me with uploads or burning a dvd.

Now, as I've learned, it's usually me.

Can someone fix me? What am I doing wrong now?

Any insight would be most appreciated. You guys have come thru for me before, so I have faith.

Below are screengrabs from within Lightworks, in VLC Player, and then VLC with gamma adjustments]]>
