I recently had to delete my free version of lightworks (I couldn't login to the old version anymore) and the new free version is clearly an update as many of the UI features are moved around or different.

When I finish a project and go to export the video, the only option is to export directly to youtube and publish. I just want to export the video to my computer, not directly to youtube. How do I fix this?]]>

When exporting, where does Lightworks write to on my hard drive? - by: bungeeman https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=240199&Itemid=81#240199 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=240199&Itemid=81#240199
I have a very small SSD which Windows 10 and a few key apps are installed on, then I have a big HDD which I generally install/store everything else on.

When exporting a particularly lengthy video, I'm finding that my SSD begins to fill up as the software temporarily writes to the disk during the exporting process. Is there a way that I can change where this is happening, so that it uses my much larger HDD?]]>

Currently using the latest lightworks 2021.2 Free on Windows 10, full computer specs below. I've recorded video using AZ screen recorder on my Samsung S21 Ultra and copied it onto my PC, imported it into lightworks.

Issue: The video is about 60mins long and the video goes all black from around the 48min mark. I suspect this maybe due to the FPS. VFR Correction is active.

My intention was to strip the existing audio, add music, and upload to youtube.

Appreciate your assistance ]]>

[SOLVED] Exports in 1080p are coming out in much worse quality than usual - by: soak314 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=239910&Itemid=81#239910 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=239910&Itemid=81#239910
I've read around and have the playback set to what I want it to export to, and all my source files are in the right place. Not sure if I can paste any data that would be of any help to figuring things out. Pictures for quality reference.]]>

I have no idea what any of it means, but I didn't think you needed the file names. If that's really necessary, I can add them in a response later.

Also, I'm using the Pro 2020.1.1 version. Might make a difference, but I'm not sure. I appreciate any help I can get, I've exported more times than I care to admit with the same general result. Sometimes I got the first couple of minutes that were fine, but every time at least 85% of the video was glitchy garbage audio. Never had this problem before, and I'm hoping this can be the last time it happens, too. lol]]>

I don't have a very powerful computer, so after importing some media which was 1080p, I right clicked on it and selected Media > Make Proxy. I could then edit the video very easily. When I export in 720p however (I'm using the free version of Lightworks), it seems to use the proxy files and not the original files, so the quality of the exported file is very poor.

How can I make lightworks use the original files for rendering? I'm using v2021.2

Edit: It seems that LightWorks has lost the connection to the original files. If I right click and select Media, the Reveal option is greyed out. This is despite the files not moving locations. Is there a way to relink these files without first deleting the proxy file?]]>

I have a video project that is at 24 fps, but can run at a higher fps (I know this because I exported it to youtube at 60 and it worked just fine). However, I went to reupload it due to quality issues, and I'm getting an error that says "general http error" every time I try to upload it. I was told I could instead download it to my computer and then upload it to youtube, but the download options are all in 24 fps and I'm going for around 60 fps on 1080p. Any ideas what to do? (I'm happy to clarify anything, and I am using the 1 month pro version of Lightworks)]]>
