Loss of quality during export - by: brroda
I've scrolled up and down many topics to find answer to my probem and I didn't found it, so I will share, what I figured out. (maybe its obvious, but I didn't found such an answer here).

First of all, I am amateur working on PRO version.

Source file: UHD 4k, precisely 60fps, imported with "create a link" option, no proxies.

When I work on it (even with "playback format 4k UHD 60fps") it looks briliant, just like source file.

Then I export to H264, UHD 4k, 60fps and something goes wrong. It looks worse than 720p.

The only difference between source file and output file is bitrate. Approximately 50.000kb/s for source file and 8.000 for exported one and this is a point(!).

When You export file, don't trust to enigmatic "compression H.264 High 4K" as I found out (look on the picture) a constant value of 1mbit/s was my problem. I set variable from 1 to 100mbit/s and right now it works fine.

Have a great day!]]>

Video pixelated after export - by: p2zee when i cut my video it is of good quality
BUT when I export it for my youtube channel it is completely pixelated.
what can be the reason?
That wasn't the case at the beginning and when I upload it with the free version it works, but then only in 720p / 60FPS and not as I want at 1080p / 60 FPS
As I said, this has only been the case for a few days, and I haven't changed any of the settings!
AND since I currently have the PRO VERSION of Lightworks, I can unfortunately no longer click the free version with 720p / 60fps, at least not with my current account on which all my presets ect are saved.

PLEASE urgently for help!]]>

New Lightworks Beta Version 2021.1.1 revision 127358 Now Available on Windows Linux and Mac! - by: Matt Sandford
The next Beta version of Lightworks 2021.1.1 revision 127358 is now available to download:

Download here

(Please read the Terms and Conditions and EULA outlined and tick the box to say you agree with them.)

It is strongly recommended that users backup their project folder before installing any new Beta build of Lightworks.

Apologies for this build arriving so late in the week. We have been extremely busy this last week with planning out the roadmap for the next big versions of Lightworks and I hope to be able to give you all an update shortly.

This latest build fixes several regressions that have crept in along with various improvements. We are still keeping changes to a minimum during this cycle and hope to be able to release within the next couple of weeks.

Some of the new Features and Improvements can be seen below:

  • Added new keyboard shortcut commands
    • "Save current sequence frame" (which saves the frame from the current record sequence)
    • "Save current frame" (which saves the frame from the focus)
    • "Associates" (which opens the Associates tab for the current clip/sequence)
  • Added additional capabilities to the "Find-> Clip references' panel
    • Segments with/without "Effects" can now be searched for (can be narrowed down to just Video or Audio by deselecting the tracks)
    • Segments with/without "Media" can now be searched for
    • Segments with/without "Cue Markers" can now be searched for
    • Segments that are "Active" Yes/No can now be searched for
    • Restored the ability to 'Jump to next match' and 'Jump to previous match' options
  • Added ability to set the default frame rate for importable items which do not have a known frame-rate
  • Improved the behaviour of Groups and Bins within the content manager
    • When expanding a group the list will try to avoid scrolling the bin list if possible
    • When contracting a group that houses the current bin now avoid switching to the last used bin
  • Improved the visual representation of transitions on the sequence timeline

All the new features and changes in the latest version which can be found in the: Changelog pages

4:3 playback format (and export) possible without black borders and/or loss in resolution? - by: timzett
Now I am having trouble with setting the Lightworks playback format properly. I tried to create custom 4:3 formats with different resolutions, but whatever pixel amount I define and whatever format is applied to the timeline, the video frame is shrinked so that I have black borders on all sides.
Same for the h.264 export using the same custom formats - the frame is shrinked by about 25 percent.

4 Questions on that:
  1. I am aware that this might be solved zooming with 3D DVE for instance, however why should that be needed when I define the custom format using the same frame height than the original one? And doesn't that also degrade my actual frame resolution?
  2. How to get a playback format in this case, which provides my 4:3 so that the full frame is being filled?
  3. And if point 1 is fixed - How about the export then? Will I lose pixels or not?

Drag and drop from timeline to bin - by: srawcliffe

I want to store the yellow highlighted clip in my bin "Trimmed clips" for use elsewhere.

If I drag/drop it to "Trimmed clips", it just disappears off the timeline, without appearing in the bin.

I've tried highlighting the clip first, not highlighting it, setting in and out markers at beginning and end ... nothing seems to work.

What am I doing wrong?]]>

What is the switch 'Progressive' supposed to do [issue] - by: hugly
To verify, use 1080i25 media in a 1080i timeline and export in PNG 1080 in two runs The first run with the switch 'Progressive' enabled, the second disabled. Use suitable software to compare the content of the created image sequences on binary level. Both image sequences are binary identical.]]>

More graph features - by: holly_011
I used Lightworks a while ago and have started using it again and love it.
The one thing that would make it near perfect for me would be more advanced graphs, similar to After Effects. I'm not sure if this is something avaliable in the Pro version already, so please let me know if it is ]]>

Don't allow interlaced playback formats with the free version [feature] - by: hugly
1. The preview on computer monitors is awful.
2. Functions and settings to de-interlace don't exist or are not documented.
3. The Free version doesn't support interlaced export, why interlaced preview?

Please consider removing interlaced playback formats all together with the free version, no matter how they have been selected/created.]]>
