Hi,

I am new in Lightworks. I just did a bunch of videoes - and now all of sudden five of them are showing just a black screen instead of the video and the audio (check attatched picture -

).
Even though the pictures in the beginning are still there and the background music too.

I have been editing in the movies for a couple of weeks and this only started now. It's a 25 fps frame rate if that matters for helping me - I'm not sure what that means

I hope you guys can help me to get my videos back. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum.

The grey color of the segments in the timeline shows that "1. Talent - god" is offline (Lightworks has no access to the file you imported.
If you have removed the drive where this file is, please reconnect the drive (and restart Lightworks if necessary).
If this file is on an SD card or similar, which may be slow or not connected to the computer all the time, then we should talk about the "Relink" feature afterwards.

If you have deleted the imported file from the from the folder from which you imported the file, but still have it in another location, please copy it back to the directory you imported it from and make sure Lightworks has access to it (and restart Lightworks if necessary)

Thank you, I will try that right away! But how do I know which folder the video were originally in and thereby where I should put them back? Is that visible somewhere in Lightworks?

Okay, good.

Yes, but I don't know if you are still interested in such details after solving your problem.
