MPEG2 iFrame-Help! - by: acadamh http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90237&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#90237 http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90237&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#90237
I am desperately trying to import MXF Files created on a Sony F5 Camera. The only proxies that work without lag in Lightworks are with the codec MPEG2 iFrame. However this codec will not embed timecode & reel number, that are essential for the finishing house the EDL that I have to send them upon completion. Any advice would be most welcome, Thank in advance.]]>

Importing archive - how much time does it take? - by: raffa http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90204&Itemid=81#90204 http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90204&Itemid=81#90204 I'm trying to import an archive.

On the Import panel I get
"Building list of items.."
"Copying.."
and at the bottom I get "About 10:30:20 remaining" but that number is increasing instead of decreasing. It seems the duration of time needed for import is getting longer and longer. Its not a countdown, it's a countup!!

How much time is espected to take an archive to import?

Thanks

Image sequence length limited on import - by: marko.pekic.radar http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90143&Itemid=81#90143 http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=90143&Itemid=81#90143

But when I import the sequence, its length is shown as just 00:10:53:00 instead of the real length which is 01:38:15:22 (as can be seen from the number of frames and fps):


The same limited length of 00:10:53:00 is also present when I add the clip to the timeline.

Is it some limitation of lwks or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any help!]]>

I messed around with codecs, looked at old posts, but I don't know what to do.

Can someone please help me? I just got Lightworks a few hours ago and look forwarding to using it very frequently.

Thanks!]]>

Incredible exports - terrible quality! - by: 3F http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=89790&Itemid=81#89790 http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=89790&Itemid=81#89790 And yesterday I found Lightworks as a 'best editor' for a few cutscenes - "very good" I thought... <_<

However! exports... omg, what a strange limitation for 720p ?

And What I should to do ? blurred and unstable image... Just to see that:

for example:

* Original:


~505kb


* After Lightworks:


~1867kb


?! ANY normal exports available only for PRO users ? i.e. can i export in ANY normal format, raw ? additional settings ?





Generally - 720p is also normal for this short preview
But, Simply to see also the sample with x264 encoder for 720p:

* 720p (H.264 - x264 core, Main@L4.1, Scaling mode - Bicubic spline for example) ~332kb



* --//-- Scaling mode - Lanczos




i don't know what to do with Lightworks with current limitation -_-

======================
-------
In order to avoid confusion, as in total for this question:

The only one variant from Lightworks free (720p without any available settings):


From any external encoder (1080p -> 720p - Lanczos):


From any external encoder (1080p -> 720p - Bicubic spline):


Original video 1080p:]]>

I record game footage with Nvidia Shadowplay at 1080p 60fps.

When watching the video via media player, everything is fine, I previously uploaded some footage onto YouTube and there was everything fine as well.

However, today I downloaded Lightworks, I watched some tutorials as well.
When I create a project, import my video file and then open the Lightworks player, along with timeline (and without) the video is in slow motion along with the audio.

However, if I manually click on a frame via timeline somewhere like in the middle or generally somewhere else, the video then is at normal speed but the sound is still continuing at slow pace from the spot I left.

The files are in mp4.]]>
