Hi all

I've been playing with lightworks (newbie) and on the second day lightworks crashed.
Now it crashes on every restart after 5 seconds.
I am attaching the Logs dir

Thanks in advance

Hello,

The very last fault looks like a hardware problem, but from the history in the logs I can't say what's wrong.

You might be able to get a running system after some trial and error.

First, did you change anything in your hardware setup recently, including drivers/updates?

I haven't changed anything for a long time. From the log history, the first crash was Backup/error.log.6 while working with the project.

After that, I can't restart lightworks. It crashes after 5 seconds

The last message on the GUI is

"Setting up edit Manager..."

and then it's gone

To narrow down possible causes, with Lightworks shut down, rename ~/Lightworks to ~/Lightworks_ORG. That hides the Lightworks data folder from access and will create a new one with defaults when restarting the program. If Lightworks still crashes, your installation has been damaged somehow, uninstalling and re-installing might help in this case, if it doesn't crash something is wrong within the original Lightworks folder.

Changing the name of the directory worked.

It doesn't crash any more

Is it solved for you, or are in the old folder still projects, etc., which you still need?

The crash appears to be related to creating the fullscreen preview window (renaming he Lightworks folder will 'fix' the problem because the default is for the fullscreen preview to be hidden).

Check your graphics setup (the error.log suggests that you aren't using nvidia/amd drivers)
