Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum Kunena Site Syndication Sat, 27 Feb 2021 15:28:30 +0000 Kunena 1.6 components/com_kunena/template/default/images/icons/rss.png Lightworks: The professional editor for everyone - Forum en-gb Is it possible to fade out a movie that has titles? - by: fbertrand27
It looks like I can dissolve tracks, and that I can fade titles all separately.

Is there a way I can just say "fade everything to black"? That feels like a pretty general task but I don't think it's possible.

I'm just a bit worried that when I do final training of links and move clips around, I need to always go back and make SURE that the titles and the tracks all fate at EXACTLY the same time, for EXACTLY the same amount of time. Is that really the case?

Thank you!]]>

Is it possible to move keyframes? - by: fbertrand27
It's all great, but if I edit the track (e.g. move the starting or ending point), the keyframes don't seem to move with the changes (which I could understand).

For example, I see that little "diamond" indicating the keyframe is no longer at the end of the track (in the bottom left keyframe navigator).

My issue is that I can't seem to just simply drag it back to the end of the clip. The only thing I seem to be able to do is to right-click-drag, but that creates a copy.

The closest thing I see is using the graph editor which does allow me to move stuff, but it's a bit inconvenient to have to select everything and move CAREFULLY so I don't change the values.

Is there no way to simply drag keyframes?

Thank you!]]>

VFX are getting mangled when exporting. - by: JPradera
For some reason, when adding effects, the video stops being exported the way it is presented in the preview.
Two problems are occurring: When adding a title to the image, the alignment of both is different; And when adding a fade in and fade out, the video zooms.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how can I fix this problem?

-- EDIT --
For some reason the GIF I attached is appearing to be a static image, so I put the video used to generate the GIF in Google Drive.]]>

Spotlighting a Player in a Sports Highlight Film - by: BryanD18
On a related note, is it possible to pause a film clip for a few seconds in order to spotlight that player before the film resumes?

Dissolve effect disappears after exporting the video - by: lesterwan1984 I have got an issue with exporting the video.
The dissolve effect works perfectly when on the edit panel,
but after the exporting most or all of the dissolve effects are gone. The last few frames
of the video will shrink and same go to the first few frame of the 2nd video where the
effect was designed.
Any quick fix?
Thanks a lot]]>

Render failed - by: cjiveson
I've exported a mixture of some video files and jpeg files into a project. I'm trying to put an effect on the jpeg (2D DVE) but when I try there's a message at the bottom, in big yellow letters that says "Render Failed". I've never seen this before. Can anyone help resolve this please?

Many thanks.]]>

I'm new to lightwork, and was trying to fix it like a couple of hours, but i really have problems. I put al my files in proxies.
First thing i can't get working is to
...V5 should have your background video or image.
Please can anyone show me how i can fix to have just a black background in V5?
I guess afterwards i put the quad square effect + the 2 DVE together?
Or which effects do i have to apply?
THANKS A LOT for your help!!

I will save me a lot of time if someone can help me!]]>

Several VFX questions: re-order, tilt, copy, etc. - by: Abocks
VFX. As you stack them, it gets very messy to manage them:

  • Is there a way to re-order them?
  • Ex. I put a 2D box after a title, I'd like to put it behind without deleting everything...
  • To easily manage/position everything (without moving several together), I always need to unfold everything, put them on different VFX tracks?

TILT. How can I tilt (like 3D DVE - Z) just 1 element? Like if I want to just tilt/rotate a picture, a title, a box, etc. WITHOUT messing with the video itself (or any other VFX for that matter).

COPY. Can just VFX become a title sequence that I call in (and update) several times in the movie?

A dissolve? - by: dbee01
Wondering where the last hours of my life went?

How exactly does one do a simple transition? eg. a dissolve

I'm on xubuntu. Latest lightworks. Registered.

F8 doesn't work. VFX -> right click -> transitions isn't available.
VFX -> effects -> components same.

Kinda frustrating.]]>

Adding certain VFX causes portrait mode lock - by: h3xagon However, whenever I apply most VFX (including color correction, which is my goal), the clip snaps to portrait orientation, causing it to be very small. The only difference between the attached pictures is that I've turned on or off the effect using the green light. I haven't found any settings to adjust this (though reselecting the 720p, 24fps will cause the preview to display correctly if only for a fraction of a second) or forum posts about the issue.
I'm a bit new to Lightworks, and I'm struggling with this problem. My version is 2021.1 (126716). Could someone please help?]]>
