Group & Ungroup Effects (Effect Routing & Effect Template) - by: schrauber
To make complex routing and effect templates easier to handle, it would be nice if templates and selected parts of the routing could be grouped. A complex routing would then appear to the user only as a single effect.
To maintain flexibility, ungrouping should be possible.

I would find the following functions helpful:

- The group can be named

- The inputs and outputs of the group can be named.

- Inputs and outputs that are only used for connections within the routing are hidden after grouping.

- Effect inputs and outputs that are not connected can be defined as group inputs or hidden. Please note that a routing can have several outputs with different functions.

- Parts of the routing should be selectable for grouping.

Probably not all effect settings of the single effect are needed in the group:
- Selectable which effect settings should be visible in the group.
- Ability to rename the selected settings and regroup the settings.
- After ungrouping the routing, all original settings, names, etc. should appear.

If saved as an effect template, it would be helpful if they could be easily exported (any file naming) and imported like fx files.]]>

easy effect exchange - by: jonathan.bondu But nevertheless, an issue I often run into is : let's say I want to put an image key effect. It will come by default as blend so I want to change the blend as a DVE in order to put it in it's proper place in the image and add a fancy shadow. So unless I've been doing it wrong all the time I'll have to remove the blend then go in the plus tab, and get the Dve, go into the routing pannel route it properly, realize that my image is on a transparent background start all over again with a Matte and a blend, realize it created a 4th fx track while I wanted it in FX2 ; so I try drag and drop it on the proper FX track after routing but suddenly, and suddenly my DVE has disappeared... So I panic, grab a coffe chocolate, and start all over again.
Now thinking about it it used to be much simpler before all the effects were in one single window. because we had back in v11 the left panel allowing to drag and drop things in place.
So here I see 3 "small features" (from my point of view) that could make my life a breeze. right click on a node in the routing pannel could allow to exchange it with any effect with the same amount of nodes. and right clincking on an input or ouput could allow to add effect (in the same track & with the same length)and why not have the ability to add effect on a pipe. I've also did quite a bit of chromakey and struggle quite a bunch.]]>

Webm import [issue] - by: hugly
The files import without any message and VIX index files are created which gives the impression that the formats are supposed to be supported on import. Unfortunately, the clips play with black picture and no sound. File card shows that both, VP8 and VP9, have been detected as VP9.

All in all, this appears like work in progress, an unfinished specification or some forgotten error messages.]]>

Lock unidirectional movement with one single modifier [feature] - by: hugly consistent lock mechanisms for horizontal and vertical movements when adjusting audio nodes on the timeline and keyframes in graphs mode.

I found that the Boris Spline Object has a nice feature to use only one single modifier for both directions. When dragging a node with Shift key pressed, the first movement defines the available direction. If the first movement is roughly vertical, horizontal movement is locked and stays locked (as long as Shift key is pressed), and vice versa. That's easy to use and to remember and, it works fine.

A solution clever enough to be implemented in Lightworks with Ctrl instead of Shift for both, keyframes and audio nodes, with V14.6?]]>

getting rid of loading mouse pointer when importing media - by: Danas_Anis
So I am facing this issue that Lightworks tends to analyze media for a really long time and gives this annoying mouse pointer loading icon and I am locked from doing anything in Lightworks. As I understand it is analyzing media to give a thumbnail and playable preview? anyway, it would be great if this process could become something like a background task so that while the media is being analyzed we could already select the desired files and command Lightworks to import selected files to the bins. For example, I know that I need all clips found in the folder, I would like to simply select them all and import and don;t have to wait till LWKS finishes analyzing.

The time while Lightworks is analyzing media (and generating something) I could use to do further preparations for my project. Something like with the rendering export media. It does it in the background and you can do other things in the project while it is exporting the desired edit.]]>

Give focus to recorder when clicking on recorder timeline [feature] - by: hugly
Please consider, for consistency with basic OS rules, switching focus to recorder when clicking wherever on the recorder timeline.

Referring to Flexible layout only, this behaviour exists also vice versa: With focus on recorder, clicking on the player timeline doesn't switch focus. Please consider changing this as well.]]>

EXR support - by: arniepix
Since EXR is commonly used to render VFX and CGI elements, it would be great if we could import the image sequences directly into Lightworks and add them to our edits without having to use some 3rd party intermediary to create an intermediate format.

And it would be even more great if we could access the alpha channels in those EXRs!]]>

F5 to switch to Project Contents in Fixed layout [feature] - by: hugly
For consistency in Fixed layout, I'd suggest switching on 'Browse project contents' to 'Project Contents' with the logic used by 'Import', i.e. from Audio and VFX mode switch to Log mode with 'Project Contents' opened, in Log and Edit open 'Project Contents' without switching mode.]]>

8K - by: hugly
There are many 360° cameras that are compatible with YouTube and are available today.

For the best results, encode your video at a high resolution and according to YouTube's advanced specifications. YouTube currently supports 360° videos with 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, or 60 frames per second. We recommend uploading 360 videos (equirectangular format with a 2:1 aspect ratio) at a resolution of 7168x3584 or higher, up to 8192x4096.
