I've been having an issue for awhile where LWKS will detect my USB mic (and my regular computer mic) but when I try to record audio within LWKS the record button is greyed out. Both microphones work fine in other applications, and at one point I was able to use LWKS to record audio directly into the video, but somehow that is no longer true.

I do notice that when I click on the little microphone button to bring up the record menu, that I do not see a sound level for the mic. LWKS can select it, but does not see any volume, which may be why it won't let me record. Are there any trouble shooting steps I can take to resolve that?

I've seen this issue posted on the forum a few times, but I have not seen an answer yet. If there is one, could you please direct me to it?

Thank you!]]>

Lightworks Freezing for 1-5 minutes constantly using up 100% disk but 0/kbps read & write - by: Sephrix

Recently updated to windows 10

Updated graphics drivers to latest version

Have been using lightworks for years with no issues at all on the exact same hardware

Recently I've tried to start a new project with the exact same video file I was editing back on windows 7. It was working fine on win 7, now when I import a clip of the video and try to do anything else lightworks freezes and my HDD disk usage goes to 100% for the entire time lightworks is frozen.
(Whole Process)
Start Lightworks
New Project (30fps, auto or mixed all tried)
Import media (tried importing just the video to see if that changes anything)
Select any section of the video and replace into edit.
Edited selection appears fine.
Move curser around for 2-10 seconds and lightworks freezes completely for 1-5 minutes.

I moved the video file to another HDD and it does the exact same thing to that HDD too.

I've tried other video files, shorter clips and videos I've edited in the past and all of them show the exact same issue.

Any thoughts? I'm stumped and completely unable to use lightworks until I manage to fix this.

Edit: Have now uninstalled and installed lightworks beta build and still having the exact same issue.]]>

2D DVE Worked for zooming but messed up other clips - by: boogeyman67 I'm hoping this is a simple fix.
This issue just popped up after I created a zoom in effect as per the instructions in one of the y/t video tutorials.
The effect worked fine, but after restarting the app, ALL the still images appear zoomed in. I've tried removing them and re-adding them, re-naming the file and re-importing the file, moving the file to a different folder and importing from there with a totally different name. But alas, they ALL appear zoomed in now... even though my file manager shows the complete file. It's as though LW applied the zoom in effect to all the images and used that new zoomed in image as the image of the file in the browser and the project. It's as thought they're all magnified.

Perhaps the app is keeping the settings from a previous session?

The zoom effect appears to have been applied to a VIDEO clip also. I've never even touched that file, but it now appears magnified from beginning to end.

I've tried exporting the project, and opening it again but not sure if i'm doing it properly because the exported project works fine, but is missing hours of work.

My last attempt was to try and mess with the routing but nothing i did made any difference to the image in the preview pane. All I did was change the connections that the image was connected to. Other than that, I'm lost.

So I finally upgraded to 126612 to see if it makes a difference. It's a little prettier, but the problem still exists.

So, to be clear, every time I import a brand new image that was in the previous project, they seem to inherit whatever 2D DVE settings were applied to the clip from a previous edit of the session. Whether I've renamed it or not.

I hope this makes sense.

Can anyone shed some light on this please?

I just found out that the video plays fine in the LOG section, but not when imported.

Ok.. making progress..
Used the 2DVE setting to zoom out... and it looks like it worked!
But there was a larger zoomed in image behind the new proper image.. but somehow I managed to get that gone.. don't ask me how. =)]]>

No Local Files Tab - by: scott7601 I am new to Lightworks and just downloaded version 14. I have viewed the beginners tutorial and got to the stage of creating my video after choosing my FPS.
However once I created a project I understand that there should be a tab on the Edit page titled Local Files where I should be able to import my photos and videos. However for some reason this tab is not there? Any ideas?

Import issue - by: wisher2015 Bugs Fri, 08 Jan 2021 17:14:25 +0000 Lightworks Crashing and now I cannot edit - by: nickc1998
So I have encountered a multitude of issues - most I seem to have solved with a previous thread but then came stuck on another, however here is my explanation:

Recently completed a video and tried to export, however when exporting it crashed, tried again and crashed. I watched it this time to see where it hangs to crash and think I have pinpointed the part, however I then go to open it up next time to just slightly amend and it crashes as I open the project. I then search this, saw I need to put it to Flexible rather than fixed and create a new room, all done that and it does not crash now.

My current issue is now probably not an issue but how do I get the original sequence at the bottom to play through to where the error is, I cannot seem to find it any where. I click all the buttons on the tools help bit and all it shows it the media, and chance to create a new sequence when I can't get to the original and only one I use!

If anyone can help with this I'd be more than grateful!

If you need any more info I will provide it!

Audio not Uploading - by: Bousey_Outdoors Bugs Wed, 06 Jan 2021 22:59:49 +0000 AAF/OMF Files - 'AAF Error 8012011b There is not enough source material... - by: SW4FILM
Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Just reached end of an 85min edit. Exporting AAF and/or OMF files with 10 sec handles. I get an error message saying..'AAF Error 8012011b There is not enough source material to add to this component.'
Error : 2148663579

I've tried making a copy of just the first five mins and exporting AAF/OMF files which works fine. I then tried half of the film, and again got the error messages.]]>

Unintended copied section [issue] - by: hugly
I've seen something like this in projects created with earlier versions shared by others. Unfortunately, when asked how those have been created, nobody was able to explain their existence. And, this refers to the latest beta.

The command 'Copy marked section', which would be a hot candidate for making a copy without dialog and highlighting the new object after creation (which is not desirable by the way), is not (was never) assigned to a keyboard shortcut on my system.

I suspect there's an activity, which creates copied sections as side effect without dialog and highlighting the copies. The question is, what could that be?

Since there might be people who know the answer, but are not beta testers, I posted this intentionally in regular forums.]]>

Automatic Positioning Hides Tiles [feature] - by: hugly
When disconnecting Bg of the DVE on V1 on this routing,

I see this - V1 is entirely hidden underneath V5:

Even reconnecting doesn't reveal the hidden object:

I'm wondering which underlying practical idea forces the system to newly arrange the objects when disconnecting, is there any good reason? I'm convinced that the best solution would be to not automatically rearrange the objects at all when disconnecting/connecting inputs, which is my feature request.]]>
