Im very new to video editing in general and Lightworks in particular, but Ive started learning and enjoy it a lot!

Ive ran into a problem where some of my clips in a project get a different in/out timing when I export the project that I need help to solve.

Ive searched the web and forum and found similar topics but nothing that solves my exact problem so I really would appreciate some help.

My projects consists of clips from my DJI Osmo Pocket camera. Normal clips are 25fps and so is the project itself as well, but Ive also used some slowmotion clips from the same camera that are 30fps. All were imported to the project in the same way by simply dropping them into LW and then made proxies as my PC is too slow to handle the originals when editing.
My understanding was that LW could handle different fps in the same project and during the edit-process there were no obstacles and I could insert and edit the clips into the timeline to my liking. However the problem arose when I finally exported the finished project and the in/out editing for all my slowmotion clips is messed up. The duration of the clips is same as edited, bu the in/out is earlier than Ive edited.

Ive noted that the timeline in my slowmotion clips don’t show time figures but only a series of >>>>>>> marks. What does this mean?

What do I have to do to make the corrupted clips in the exported video to match with what I actually edited?
(It’s a rather long project so I don’t want re-make the whole project, only change the slowmotion clips, or preferably just make some setting tweaks.

Thanks for your help in advance!]]>

Speeding up video clips - by: Cadence The Ghost https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210981&Itemid=81#210981 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210981&Itemid=81#210981 Trying to speed up the frame rate of my video. I looked at some other forum topics on it and tried what they said, but I guess it was for older versions because it didn't work on mine. How do I speed up my video?]]> Editing Sun, 12 Jan 2020 03:16:06 +0000 Can I extend the last frame of a media clip somehow? - by: thesunray https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210820&Itemid=81#210820 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210820&Itemid=81#210820
Maybe this exists already and I just don't know how to name it or use the right search terms?

Can I import a project, not its media pieces, into another project? - by: thesunray https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210790&Itemid=81#210790 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210790&Itemid=81#210790
My application is a simple "endcard" with about 5 pieces of content. A video, a photo, a tune, and two audio voice files. Currently, I have them in a folder and add each individually to my new project, then adjust them and slide them to fit. Each time.

Is there a way to have them all collected together in a "group" so that it can all be plopped directly into the project as a working "endcard" unit? Without the fiddling?]]>

Sometimes I can't add a transition, why? - by: thesunray https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210789&Itemid=81#210789 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210789&Itemid=81#210789
To create a transition I usually hover between the two clips and right click, then choose "Transition > Add" from the menu. Should I be in the video editor for this?

Just confused as to why this message is happening when I'm using decently long enough clips.

Thank you!]]>

I tried this on the first video but then can only save the "righted" video by exporting it which reduces the size of the video by more than half. I tried doing it on Movie maker but it also makes the video size less than half.
Are both of these programs compressing the videos and reducing the quality ?
Righting this video made the image smaller, is this why the file is smaller ?
Is there a better way to do it ?]]>

Why is that?

[Solved] Trimming: Where has my split preview window gone? - by: timzett https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210480&Itemid=81#210480 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210480&Itemid=81#210480 Anyway, I don't find the setting anymore, to revert to the following:

Suppose I start a trim by unjoining, using one of the following keys (or the respective mouse/Alt key sequence): q, u, e, r, t, y, u.
In the past then my preview window split up, so that I saw the current frame of the clip left to the cut point on the left pane, and the current frame of the clip right to the cut point on the right pane. This is a very important thing, in order to predict the final result of your trim.
Currently my preview window stays the same and in one, which means I only see the first frame of the clip right to my cut point.

I want to get the previous behavior back, means the one where I see both sides of the cut point I'm working unjoined.
How to achieve this again?]]>

I have the problem that sometimes, to see a video that is underlying another video, I can uncheck the upper video, to see the video underlying. and sometimes this doesnt seem to work.. is there any way to get a good workflow for that?

so it looks like that and i would like to edit a bit back and forth between the two video tracks (I know there are better workflows involving multicam bins for doing that..)]]>

Yearly question on timelapse - by: jaccoermers https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210087&Itemid=81#210087 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=6&id=210087&Itemid=81#210087
my yearly christmas timelapse video means struggling with commands again.

Workflow:
-Video the kids with a gopro
-Insert videos into one sequence and remove the audio.
-Find begin and end point (mark)
-Pick a audio track

So far so good. Now for the tricky part:
-Squeeze the marked video selection from the video sequence (40min??) into the audio track.

I marked the video sequence and the audio track (even added a empty video track) and tried Alt-V but it doesnt seem to work. Is this because I try to squeeze a sequence into a sequence?

My dirty solution: export the video sequence, and then put it on the audio track. but not how it should be .....]]>

My video amounts to little more than a vlog (it is a scam baiting video), so I have no idea how to get everything in sync. It did the same thing in preview as well, but it seems to work fine when I play it on Quicktime player.

Any ideas?]]>
