Hi To-r-ben. Your English is very clear.

However, if you ever need to express yourself more clearly in future on more technical questions, you can always re-write your message in your native language. There are plenty of German speakers in the forum who will be able to respond.

Write it first in English to the best of your ability. Then write it again in German.

To answer your question, the resolution of your screen capture video (1680x1050) is non-standard. Lightworks is a professional non-linear editor that requires videos to adhere to standard image resolutions. That is probably why the margins are cut off.

Can you set your screen capture software to capture at a standard resolution like full high definition 1920 x1080?

You will need to convert your current video to 1920 x 1080 which is the nearest standard resolution.

I am moving this post to the Screen Capture category of the forum where you will get a better response. - Moderator

Thank you for the help.

I understand, that the reswolution of 1650 to 1080 isnt common; but i used it even in the past and i used even lightwork to work with this videos. No problem until begining at September. The video in October have thsi problem. Could it b a version of lightwork that dont support it anymore?

I can link the video links if necessary.

Try importing it into Lightworks, then using DVE tools to shrink the video to fit the frame, then add whatever else is needed.

I get the same problem and have found no way to fix it, and haven't managed to find a program that can convert 1680x1050 video to 1680x945 with letterboxing.

Perhaps experimenting in the Main Project Tab under Video/Conversions might help - not sure. 1680:1050 simply is not 16:9 which is the broadcast standard aspect ratio expected by LW and others.

Hi, I had the same problem to yours. I solved it be converting my flash video capture from 1680x1050 (captured using OBS instead of FRAPs) to 1920x1080 and inserting pillarboxes. I converted using ffmpeg, which you can download from www.ffmpeg.org/

The command in the ff prompt to run the conversions between those resolutions and insert pillarboxes at full quality and 30 Hz framerate for all the .flv files in a folder is

for %i in (*.flv) do ffmpeg -i "%i" -filter:v "scale=-1:1080,pad=1920:1080:120:0" -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -r 30 "%i".avi

I am trying to convert 1680x1050 59.94Hz video in an mp4 format (to 1920x1080 59.94Hz mp4 with pillarboxing), what would I change in that line to do this?

would it be something like this?

for %i in (*.mp4) do ffmpeg -i "%i" -filter:v "scale=-1:1080,pad=1920:1080:120:0" -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -r 59.94 "%i".mp4

Also, is there a way to make the output folder in a different location other than where the input/source file is?

Something like that, yes, the -r switch controls the output framerate, though I'm not sure ffmpeg will support deciaml points in it; you can try it and anyway the documentation on their website seems pretty extensive.

To move the locations of files around, here is the command above done for just one file

ffmpeg -i inputfile.flv -filter:v "scale=-1:1080,pad=1920:1080:120:0" -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -r 30 outputfile.avi

you can presumably put directory names in there though I haven't tried it. The

for %i in (*.mp4) do

and the

"%i"

bits in the command above just loop over all files matching *.mp4 and for each that matches it then runs the command replacing the "%i" in the command with the name of the file. It's just a way of saving you a lot of typing.
