Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum Kunena Site Syndication Thu, 31 Jul 2014 05:20:18 +0000 Kunena 1.6 Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum en-gb Uploading to Dailymotion need help! - by: Wiggitywow
I'm having a bit of a problem. For starters, I have Lightworks Pro (just an fyi so we can forget the question if i'm using the free variant or not.)

I'm a guy whose recently started the whole process of uploading videos of my gameplay and commentary on said games to Dailymotion. Just to give a little background, I'm a guy who is making gameplay videos for Dailymotion as a part of their Official Users Program in order to earn ad revenue off said videos. I don't know if it will go anywhere or not, but it seems like an avenue I seem to be good at (in terms of entertainment.) I also primarily will be streaming to a gameplay streaming site called Twitch to earn ad revenue as well as a possible future Sub button to where great fans of my content can support me (optionally)more directly than Ad rev by paying a monthly $4.99 subscription fee, to which they also get further perks for doing so. In the end, I'm hoping it works out, but we'll see where the road inevitably takes me. Anyway, to the problem I'm having.....

I have for recording both PC and Console gaming. an Avermedia Live Gamer HD internal PCI-e Capture Card and though I haven't yet tested the streaming capabilities of the card yet as I wanted to sort through the recording videos process first, so far it works great with recording 1080p gameplay and audio. It's been a tricky road learning the new video editing software as learning for me takes me longer than others, but I'm getting it slowly, enough to make a basic video with the video, game audio, and voice commentary. But when it comes to the whole exporting process, it seems I've reached a bit of a hurdle. Without posting links to the card, it's hard to describe all its capabilities (search Avermedia Live Gamer HD pci-e card, not the live gamer portable.) The website DailyMotion itself says its best recommended format to upload videos to their site is MP4 (H.264) and so far that I've seen I'm doing it right. The Avermedia's recording is in AVCHD compression as well as AVCHD Format by default and under the container tab, it shows MTS, M2TS, H264, and MPG. I chose H264. I tried to then upload to DailyMotion and it tells me "Invalid File Type."

Can anyone help me out with figuring out how to upload? Your help is greatly appreciated!

Please dumb it down for me - Importing video - by: ameagari
The footage was stuff from a VHS that I had digitized onto a DVD. I then took the files off the DVD and put them on my hard drive as .VOB files.

After importing the footage, I notice a weird effect in the video. I see lines. I am not sure how to describe it, but especially when there is much movement, images have horizontal lines through them.

I realize the answers to my questions may already be on the forum, but I am enormous confused and overwhelmed. I guess I need it dumbed down. Please help?

I tried converting the VOB's into other formats, but nothing else could be imported, whether MKV or MPEG or whateverf I converted the VOB's to, all I got was errors when I tried to import it.]]>

AC3Filter Issue - by: The.Nowhere.Man
*I can hear the audio in everything except LWorks. Not sure if that is important, but nonetheless.
*I am running on Windows 8. Again, not sure how important that is.
*Besides MovieMaker and LWorks, WMP is all I have for opening video files.
*The clip is very large (1hr+) and would therefore take a very long time to convert, so I would rather not do that.
*I am still very new to LWorks and this type of work, so please keep that in mind when answering.

Thanks in advance. Also, my grasp on how the program (AC3Filter) works might be completely wrong. The limited understanding that I have is that it will just appear as an icon when I open the file. That doesn't make much sense to me, but like I said, I feel like I am missing something obvious.]]>

Lightworks rendering engine fails to initialize - by: vcalliso
Basically I have a fully finished product in lightworks that I cannot get to export. The film is in an .mts format, and I previously have a problem importing the footage- it was grainy and distorted. I uninstalled lightworks and reinstalled the program and afterwards had no difficulties. I also have a few clips that I have imported from blender render (formated as .mov files) and a few pictures (formatted as .jpeg). Every time I try to export from lightworks I get a message saying that the rendering engine has failed to initialize. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the program, if I have too many different file types in the editor, or if I've done something stupid (that last one might be the most likely). I'm working on Windows 8, 64-bit, using the free version of ligthworks, and I have the lastest quicktime installed. I do not to my knowledge have other codecs installed. Nor do I know where to get them. But according to this post (below), the latest version of lightworks does not need certain codecs.


I've uninstalled and reinstalled lightworks several times now with no luck- none of my other projects will export either. I'm grasping at straws! This is a promotional video, so it's very urgent that I solve this as soon as possible, whether by fixing this problem with lightworks or starting all over from the beginning in a separate editor. I am completely open to suggestions about other programs if it seems that ligthworks will not work out- I just have to be able to use subtitles in the program and write in Chinese characters without having them appear as little boxes.

Thanks SO much in advance- any help or thoughts at all would be fantastic at this point. I'd really really rather not start over from scratch again! I'll also be completely willing to provide any further necessary information to resolve this problem. Like I said, I am new at this and don't know what would be relevant.]]>

clipped frame with pc-screen-captures - by: utzrk
here ist my next problem:
I imported some AVI files that were captured from my 1650x1080 PC screen by FRAPS. Parts of the left and right side habe been clipped away so that I only get a partial image. I tried different output settings, nothing changed.
The filecard however tells me correctly that I imported a 1650x1080 PC capture.

Any idea how to transcode Pentax K5 video? - by: cnaw
If anyone has the the time to download it and transcode it to another format successfully (preferably using eyeframe converter or something else that is free or low cost) and explain the settings they used I would be very much appreciative. I've seen threads here where people mention they figured out how to do it without getting the repetitive clicking sounds in audio, but they never explain how. Thanks in advanced.

Lightworks never finishes analysing, stops analysing other files - by: Quitch
I've started running into an issue where as I scroll down my list of video files (MP4, 1080P, AVCHD) for import, there are a few which never leave "analysing". Eventually, Lightworks seems to give up and I hit a point in the list where every file from that point forward simply displays "analysing". I left it overnight to see if it was simply CPU intense files, but when I came back in the morning the program was simply reported as "not responding". Even if I don't let it get to that stage, once it has hit this "analysing" bug I can't quit the program it simply tries to quit forever until it hits this not responding state and I have to forcefully terminate the program.

The files which it is stuck on analysing appear to be ones which cause the program to hang if dragged in, but when I hit the point where it's simply a long list of files in "analysing" then a number of them work and my guess is that the program will only simultaneously analyse so many files and it's stuck on enough by that point that it's no longer working on them.

I tried using EyeFrame converter to turn one of the files into the DNxHD 36 format in the hope this would resolve the issue, but despite the fact that the end file worked fine in my media players, Lightworks would only see it as a sound file.

I also have problems with numerous MP3 files (which naturally work fine everywhere else) not being importable until I convert them to WAV.

The program just seems frustratingly flaky when it comes to import and I don't know if there's anything I can do about it. I'm going to try and identify the problem files and see if moving them elsewhere resolves the issue, but it's long-winded because the program handles this situation so poorly. It should just timeout on them or something, but it keeps analysing forever. Ideally it should just be able to analyse them.]]>

Any info re: RGBA Lossless Compression Codec? - by: JagoBC
Apparently, the RGBA codec only becomes available when both the 32 bit and the 64 bit versions of Lightworks are both installed on the same machine (at least that seems to be the case on my machine). Does anyone know who manufactures the RGBA Lossless codec? Can I get a copy and install it on my computer without having to keep both versions of Lightworks?

compressed width-height-ratio - by: utzrk
I am experimenting with the free version of Lightworks and imported a AVI-Video file recorded with a Sony VX100 camera on the wide screen setting which I captured into a computerfile with another Sony DV-camera using Premiere Elements 8. In different video-editing programs this file will be showed correctly. In lightworks it shows as a width-compressed (almost anamorphotic) image of the original. What is the reason of this?

Issue with Importing 120fps GoPro Footage - by: JC-Moto
I've just downloaded LightWorks and tried to import my raw GoPro footage which was shot in 720 at 120fps.

The import screen in LightWorks says the following for each of my video files;

Format: 720p, AVCHD
Rate: 48 kHz (This is shown in red text)

And when you double click on the file it says;

Unable to import into the current project, check frame rate and audio sample rate.

So I'm guessing it either doesn't like the frame rate I've used, or it doesn't like the native MP4 format that the GoPro kicks out.

Either way, how can I get LightWorks to import my footage?]]>

File hangs Lightworks on import. Supported format? - by: Quitch
If the file is viewed in the import window then it shows as "not analysed" and retrying the analysis leads to it never getting past "analysing", and if it's dragged into Lightworks then Lightworks stops responding and must be terminated.

File which doesn't work:

Is this a file that should be causing Lightworks issues? If so is Eyeframe Converter still the best route to go down for changing my files to a friendly format?]]>

Help with exporting - by: Dividentification Codecs / Importing / Exporting / Transcoding Sat, 19 Jul 2014 22:50:40 +0000 [SOLVED] Stuttering MP4 Playback - by: EzraLock
I am wondering if anyone would be so kind as to help me fix this issue.

I have recorded video with my Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. When I come to view and edit the footage in Lightworks, the playback is ok for the first few seconds and then stutters and stops completely for the majority of the clip making it uneditable.

I have read numerous posts on the forum stating that Lightworks does not much care for MP4 format. Please correct me if I am incorrect. I am not knowledgeable on transcoding (Don't really know anything). Can anyone explain to me in simpleton terminology, how to fix the issue and recommendations on what programs to use to transcode if I have to do this.

When transcoding to another format, do videos loose quality once complete?

My rig is a pretty decent rig so I am pretty sure that is not the issue. Please see the specs below:

- Windows 7 64 bit
- Corsair A70 Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler
- Asus P8Z68-V LE Motherboard
- 16GB PC3-10666 1333MHz DDR3
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600KCPU @3.40GHz
- AMD Radeon HD 6970 2048MB
- Corsair Ultra Low Noise 600W PSU
- 120GB Corsair Force 3 SSD
- Samsung 1TB 7200RPM Hard Disk

I would love to continue to use Lightworks as it seem very intuitive. Look forward to a response from one of you lovely helpful folk ]]>
