TOPIC: Um projeto não abre

Um projeto não abre 2 months ago #201964

Estava criando um projeto e o Lightworks travou no momento que eu limpava a timeline. Quando reiniciei o Lighworks novamente, tentei abrir o mesmo projeto e o programa fecha novamente.
Outros projetos são abertos normalmente.

Hello,

What version of Lightworks do you run, V14.0 or V14.5?

If I understand correctly, you have one project which you can't open without a crash. It could be that an initial crash damaged metadata of this project somehow. This might be fixable, but the two project folders would be needed.

To reveal the location of the project folders, on the start screen hover with the mouse over the project tile. The name of project folder starts with the letter 'P'. Next to the project folder, you'll find a folder with the same name, but starting with 'G'. Both would be needed.

Eu tentei uma alternativa. Vi que existe uma opção para recupera o backup do projeto. Fiz isso e consegui abri-lo novamente.

Very good, system backups don't always help bringing back the project in a stable state without losing too many editing steps.

Good that it worked for you and thanks for the feedback.

If the reference is to making backups here -

- it is a very robust tool. We can still restore backups made last century in pre-EditShare versions of LW into current LW - of course there have been changes in areas like VFX so it is necessary to make some adjustments to very old projects but the 'essence' remains perfectly intact.

Of course the frequency of making backups will determine the state of the project after restore; edit decisions made after the backup will obviously need to be rebuilt

Once a backup is made - to update it takes only a few seconds - here it is a standard operating procedure that backups are made twice a day as well as after a particularly intensive editing session - for example when the Director has been in to work on their Director's Cut version.

It is also important to configure the backup process to suit individual needs - the major question being - does the backup need to include media files. If they are included the original backup might take some time but subsequent backup updates skip already existing media files - and are again very quick.

In fairness, when hugly used the term "system backup" I believe that he was referring to a complete system backup of the entire hard drive. That sort of backup will cause issues with lost edits or even entire projects if it isn't extremely recent.

Yes, was aware he may have been, not at all meaning disrespect of user hugly; rather perhaps an opportunity to explain the LW project backup process to user jean.scarmagnani not sure which process that user referenced in reporting their solution. Perhaps a milestone restore??
