I recently had to delete my free version of lightworks (I couldn't login to the old version anymore) and the new free version is clearly an update as many of the UI features are moved around or different.

When I finish a project and go to export the video, the only option is to export directly to youtube and publish. I just want to export the video to my computer, not directly to youtube. How do I fix this?]]>

Can't export - Format unsupported - Linux free version - by: tandjwhite
When I try to export my project, I get the error: Format Unsupported.

Looking around on these forums, I think I am trying to export the wrong format, but I can't seem to change it.

When I choose to export, the only valid option is: H.264/MP4 (Free).
However, I notice that the framerate is blank. Somewhere I saw that this is could be the problem.

I am using imported clips that are 1080p, H.264 as per the following screenshot.

How can I successfully export my video?]]>

How to get the most performance from the PC - by: bozar
can you help solve this puzzle?

Im thinking how to get the most from my configuration to edit videos in LWKS Free.

My specs:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz
Memory: 16GB
System: Win 10
SSD 256 GB (System Disk)


I'm trying to solve what is the best option to:
1. Where to install LWKS? (which drive?)
2. Where to store videos from my camera? (which drive?)
3. Where to store my backups? (which drive?)

Is there any other option that I should take care off?
I would like to work on proxies and I would love to have the best possible quality of exported files (4k 60 fps).
Should I somehow compress my RAW files before importing them to LWKS?

I have tone of stuff on my camera to work on and I want to setup everything correct before I start:)]]>

Random audio distortion on export ? - by: hugly
In my understanding the internal audio encoders and decoders are software based and don't use interrupt driven and thus timing critical access to audio hardware. Consequently timing issues causing distortion shouldn't occur on export, it's reading a stream, decoding it, encoding and writing it, basically. No matter how fast or slow the process is, it creates the same binary result, reproducibly.

Recently reports started about random audio distortion on heavy system load in preview which carries over into exported files, even one with no distortion in preview, but in the exported file. I have no idea how something like this can this can happen, at least not if no audio hardware involved.

Can someone with experience in coding sound processing chains shade some light on what the affected machines are fighting with?]]>

Licensing server down? (can't connect) - by: FoilHattiest
The funny thing is, when she goes to the test web address suggested by the troubleshooting page, it loads instantly with a "TEST PASSED". Have tried restarting both the computer and the router several times with the same result - web test page loads just fine, but LightWorks still can't connect.

I know it says to zip up logs and e-mail to support but considering the weekend is coming up and support staffs can sometimes generally take a few days to respond to things I just thought I would ask if anybody knows if there's something wrong with the licensing server today? Or if possible, if there's any other way to verify that it's indeed up and working besides going to the test web address?]]>

Playback lagging - by: HBchic
I saw that one guy on here edits with the low res videos and then replaces them with high res which will not work for me at all. That would be very annoying.

With these lags, I may as well be editing blindfolded.

I use two cameras but I have converted both files in Handbrake so that the fps and all of that matches.]]>
