So, I'm doing a Youtube channel and I want to know how to edit webcam videos into the main videos. (you know, where you have something like boxing recorded and you also have a smaller box with the webcam recording you) Does anyone know how to do that? Thanks!

With the understanding that there are many ways to achieve the same goal in Lightworks, see if this YouTube video helps:

North Carolina, USA
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
2x2.7 GHz E5-2680
500GB SSD and1TB HDD
64 GB DDR3 10600
Quadro K4200
~X-Keys Pro 68 key USB Jog/Shuttle controller
*Galaxy E5 with Filmic Plus*
*JVC GY-HM150*

Ok, so I followed the instructions on the video and the webcam video isn't in sync with the webcam audio. Is this normal with webcam vids or do I have to do something. Thanks.

Unfortunately, you're not providing enough information. Please follow the directions in this sticky, so that users can see the technical details of your video.

Also, providing the spec of your computer would help.

Are you using Lightworks V14.5?

I have version 14.0 of Lightworks. Do you think upgrading might help?

So, I upgraded Lightworks and now my webcam videos aren't showing up in the local files but they're in File Explorer. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Could you post a Mediainfo report of one of the affected files, please?

Furthermore, two screenshots would be needed. One of the File Explorer and one of Local Files which show what you see including the path in both.

Is there any way I can record webcam vids via Lightworks?

Recording from external sources needs a Pro version and special capture cards which are quite expensive. Furthermore, I'm quite unsure if there's any webcam which provides suitable signals and connectors for regular video capture.

Just to say, you will increase your chances to fix your initial problems by providing the requested information, instead of asking one question followed by the next.

Thanks.

WMV isn't a supported import format and 15 fps isn't a standard frame rate. You can easily fix both by converting prior to import. I'd suggest using Handbrake to convert to MP4 with 30 fps. Here you'll find a basic setup to start with.

Different from what is shown there, on "Video" tab, set "Framerate (FPS) to "30" (instead of "Same as source") and "Constant Quality:" to "18"

I'm doing what you say, but every time I click on "Start Encode" an error message pops up that says the output directory I selected does not exist, or I do not have permission to write files to it. Any idea what's going on?

Sorry about that. I just had to find a location for my vids and I didn't know I was supposed to do that, but I figured it out. Problem solved!
