Maybe its a quite naive or obvious solution, but I post it here in case someone could find it helpful.

Beginning of the year I reset the computer and I copied-pasted all files placed in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Lightworks\Projects\

Today I had to recover a video from that folder and I started to stress to see that 'Restore an archived project...' didn't work... I didn't backup any project. I didn´t found anything clear to that situation in the forum so I tried the following:

Simply, I copied and pasted all saved folders to the actual C:\Users\Public\Documents\Lightworks\Projects\

When I restarted LWKS all, YES ALL projects showed won·der·fu·lly up there. Once opened, all medias were offline, so in a couple of minutes I had the project ready; (I expected the whole morning on this with no sucess).

Best]]>

Sound is not synchronized after exporting - by: Lion Works https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=14&id=229975&Itemid=81#229975 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=14&id=229975&Itemid=81#229975 Of course I already used the search button but couldn't find the solution yet.
I use Lightworks Pro2020.1.1 and after exporting my file the audio is not synchronized with the video any more.
Frame rate of the Video is 30fps and so is the setting in the export - 1080p 30fps.
I tried various settings, like changing frame or bit rate and also tried different exports, avi, mp4, mov(which wouldnt play on my player)'
Sometimes when I come back to a project some audio files are not excatly in space any more. I thought i could be my external hard drive, but same problem accurs if I import directly from my Lenovo Think Book i7 10th gen 16GB ram Laptop.

It's impossible for me to work like this and I hope it's just a settings problem.

I love the programm, it's really smooth to overview and get started. I just wish, I can use it fully working soon!
Please let me know which information I can provide

THANK YOU for helping me!!]]>

Outdated computer names - by: aristofanes https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=42&id=229974&Itemid=81#229974 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=42&id=229974&Itemid=81#229974
I have two desktops, the used to be called DESKTOP-xxxxxxx and DESKTOP-yyyyyy wher x and y is collection of to me meaningless characters.

6 months ago I renamed my computer, DESKTOP-homeoffice, DESKTOP-livingroom etc. BUT, lightworks picks up the old names, I have no idea which is which. I dont want to waste my precious activations on a trial and error, Lightworks PRO should only be installed on my fast homeoffice computer.

How can I match my old computernames, known by Lightworks (!) to my new names?]]>

Exporting Edited GoPro footage - by: kyb1e https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=229943&Itemid=81#229943 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=229943&Itemid=81#229943
I recently upgraded to Lightworks Pro to have more export options but I still don't like what the final product looks vs the raw GoPro footage.

The camera records in 1440p @ 29.97FPS with a wide FOV.

What would be the best settings for exporting to keep the quality as high as possible?

Thanks in advance for any tips you may have]]>

Change entire track audio level? - by: simonhgr https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=8&id=229934&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#229934 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=8&id=229934&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#229934
I have a sequence that has many cuts in it, and I realize I need to boost the audio level throughout. How can I achieve this?

When I go to the audio panel and adjust "Track Sound Level", the level only seems to change from the point of the playback head to the end of the cut containing it. As a side note, that's somewhat less effective than the "clip gain" feature.

I've tried marking an in and out point before the adjustments, but that made no difference at all.

I also tried "selecting" (so I get the yellow box around a cut) several pieces, but that seems to have no significance in the Audio panel.

Hoping someone can help me out here, I really don't want to manually reset the level on 100 separate little chunks!

TIA!]]>

Feature request: Multiple playheads when trimming - by: digitallysane https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=229918&Itemid=81#229918 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=229918&Itemid=81#229918
The concept would be to have a new playhead generated each time one unjoins a cut (up to 4 playheads for example), at the place of that cut.
Each of those playheads would add a TwinView "row" in the Sequence Viewer.

There should also be the option to add User playheads when in trim mode (either fixed or playing in sync with the main one). Those would probably add only a single (not twin) view to the Viewer.
A fixed user playhead would allow the monitoring of a specific place on the timeline, while trimming/moving clips.

This is a generic concept, of course there are lots of details (should the auto generated one be movable by the user, for example? etc).

An example of the functionality (but not for trimming, just general playback):

multiple LW windows (multiscreen) - by: motosega https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=229912&Itemid=81#229912 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=229912&Itemid=81#229912 this is also pretty useless in fixed mode since gui elements are cut in half.

i suggest that LW gets multiple resizeable windows in flexible view that share the workspace.
and multiple windows in fixed mode that can show a different View on each monitor.

i appreciate that the biggest problem with things like this is that they have a lot of implementation differences on each platform.]]>

My video and sound will not on lightworks free - by: George Langley https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=14&id=229881&Itemid=81#229881 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=14&id=229881&Itemid=81#229881 I am new to Lightworks (know how to edit but still learning) and I have a problem. Ever time I import a mp4 file which needs to be edited on lightworks the video is black and the audio is almost sped up like some kind of comedy show or cartoon. However the video is not corrupt as I have played it in the file section many times however whenever I go into lightworks its stops working. I have tried all the regular things like starting it again etc but it still does not work.
Would appreciate any help
Many thanks.]]>
