But I want to start filming in 2.7k and getting the option to export at a decent 'level' to allow my videos to be viewed on YouTube as 4k

I struggle with best export settings and which of the long list of various export options.

Is there a 101 or a tutorial for that aspect of lightworks or what YouTube does to the footage etc ?]]>

Archived project ... missing clips, that there, but not loading. - by: tszuj https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=225323&Itemid=81#225323 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=225323&Itemid=81#225323 in addition as another clip. Curiously, any new clip I've imported in my attempts to effectively link an offline clip to its file, does not have an astericks suffix, which all the other clips (be they present or offline, have) - is this a clue to what's going on? Searching 'astericks' on this forum brings up one thread talking about replacing reels and adding to bins, but nothing about clips.
Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts/advice on this.]]>

Export freezes, tried so much stuff help - by: edputt https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224976&Itemid=81#224976 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224976&Itemid=81#224976 Windows 10, i7-4770K, 16GB ram, 1050ti. Source Videos on SSD, exporting to internal HD.
I actually tried to export to the same SSD and the other internal HD with the same issues.

So the problem is whenever I go to export the video it gets about 90% done and then stops exporting. Sometimes I can click the cancel on the export and sometimes if I do the whole program crashes.

I have removed, I do believe all the spaces from the end in the beginning.
I have tried to export using ignore leading trailing in black and whole sequence.
I have tried 1080P 29.97 FPS.
I have tried 30 FPS
I'm exporting all these at 1080P BTW.
I tried the compression at 6 and compression at 8 for the H.264.
I have tried exporting as mov files.
I have tried exporting as MP4 and Avi.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with the allow you to help me.

I have included here a latest snapshot of the log whenever I was trying to do an MP 4 again.

Bulk Export Ideas? - by: motosega https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224723&Itemid=81#224723 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224723&Itemid=81#224723
i've had to make several revisions to these projects (they share an intro, which keeps getting updated even though it's supposed to be final).

short of keeping them all in one megaproject is there any way to make this a bit less labor intensive than opening each project one at a time, doing the export, then opening the next one?]]>

Videos Not Showing In Local Files - by: AlienStars https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224514&Itemid=81#224514 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224514&Itemid=81#224514 Going to my Local Files, into the correct folder, shows no video except for one with the wrong name. It's the right video, but it doesn't have the right name as in the original folder. It's called WHM in my orig. folder, but called WH(L/R) in Lightworks.

There's a lot of videos in there, all .mp4, and one audio file. I was able to do the exact same thing I'm trying to do (compile various video and audio sources) just yesterday, and always have been, so I'm unsure what's happening.

Edit: I deleted the original file that had been renamed by lightworks and everything showed up. I'd still like to know why it did that so I can avoid it in the future. I'm wondering if it was because it's the only one that had audio? But I've uploaded my own videos (these were stock videos) that were .mp4 with audio before, so I'm a bit confused.]]>

Export quality - by: gogreen123 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224462&Itemid=81#224462 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224462&Itemid=81#224462
I've been repeating this same process over 10 times and exporting it in 720p. If I were to purchase the Pro plan, would I be able to export this same video in 1080p with better resolution? Or would I just be exporting in 1080 with no change in video quality?

Thank you!]]>

I cannot export on Lightworks (free version) - by: vanish21 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224365&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#224365 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224365&limit=15&limitstart=15&Itemid=81#224365 Codecs / Importing / Exporting / Transcoding Sun, 30 Aug 2020 13:27:53 +0000 Material Error: Replaced with Black - by: PatrickHi https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224360&Itemid=81#224360 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224360&Itemid=81#224360
My video looks fine, but I am getting 20+ messages "Material Error: Replaced With Black"

I hear this can be when there is something wrong with the source video. I have a mix of ffmpeg- eyeframe- and handbrake- and lightworks-internal-proxy files that are in use in my project.

What would be the systematic way of dealing with this issue? I am hoping to not need to re-do all the edits I've done in the project.

Thanks!

Blackmagic RAW - by: thetooth https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224334&Itemid=81#224334 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=224334&Itemid=81#224334 ).

Getting to the point, I am a pocket 4k user and would love to be able to quickly edit and deliver from my laptop where lightworks runs like greased lightning, the recent BRAW support is a killer feature but I am sorely missing the color correction freedom of resolve.

The color wheels in the VFX tab should cover most of what I would need to do as far as correction and simple looks, however the timeline appears to only be in 8bit? What I am having issues with is if say the sky is clipping there is absolutely no way to bring it down without making it gray, there just isn't any information available when there is using a floating point timeline in resolve. Shadows and WB are the same and with no settings in the RAW tab it's very hard if not impossible to get acceptable footage from a lot of clips (or at least clips shot with half hearted attention to exposure, which you could argue is the wrong way of going about it, but it is one of the best features of RAW).

It would be absolutely amazing if this workflow could be improved. I think the main feature needed is a way to set all of the RAW parameters per clip (I believe these are part of the SDK correct? so it should *just* be a matter of adding the UI elements and wiring it up). Next would be having the timeline/node graph operate in either 16bit integer or perhaps ARRI C log floating point to allow for much higher gamma and gamut information. Finally, since we already have a node based workflow for color, the ability to apply a grade to the timeline as a whole would be immensely useful.]]>
