3rd party solutions are pretty common with professional NLEs, most of which are more expensive than Lightworks.

Well that doesn't mean its right of course. It was fit for purpose before the update and now its not.

I don't however agree that you should have to use 3rd party tools to supplement the performance of what is supposed to be a professional product.

Honestly, with the countless video and audio formats spread all over the market nowadays, it's a good idea to conform your media prior to import with any kind of NLE, or to use devices which create editable media out of the box.

Adobe suggests Media Encoder to conform media prior to import. Most users on this forum prefer suggesting Eyeframe Converter or other free software.

Unfortunately, we know nothing about the issue that has arisen with your footage on V14, since we don't have the technical details of your media.

There are number of third party programs that editors use when preparing media:

Just chiming into the conversation - same issue. No problems with the previous version of Lightworks and now my audio is out of sync with my video on imports. I seem to get better results on importing by having framerate for the project set to auto and choosing "Create Link" as the way to import. Transcode and Copy Local both give me desync issues.

Hello and welcome!

What version of Lightworks do you run, on which operatings system?

If this relates to a beta version please post this in the appropriate beta forum. Otherwise it's unlikely to get fixed.

Nope, not a beta. 14.0 just like the OP, running on Windows 10.

V14.0 is close to end of life, what older versions do you mean.

Do you edit on a regular basis?

Did the problem start recently, a few day ago?

In that case, please follow the directions in this sticky, so that users can see the technical details of your video.

Same problem, and only 48hrs to finish my project. I am even a Pro-user, which makes it even more annoying, having paid for a product with which I cannot work now.
Where do I get this v.12.6 from? I definitely need a very quick-fix for my problem

Hello and welcome!

Sync issue between picture and sound can have multiple causes. To understand the nature of your problem more information is needed.

Please post your computer details (OS version, CPU, RAM, GPU, size manufacturer/model of hard drive(s) used for media) and a Mediainfo report of the footage you use. Here you'll find directions: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=66072&Itemid=81

Please describe precisely what kind of sync issues do you encounter? Is sound compared to picture too early or to late? Is sound shifted by a constant amount or does it drift in one direction? Is it possibly sometimes too early, sometimes too late and sometime correct? Is the issue recognizable only in preview when editing or also when playing an exported file (not the source) with media player?
