Hi,

I filmed some 4K clips using h.265 on the Fujifilm X-T3. It lightworks when I load them I only get audio.

I'm using version PRO14.0.0.0 (93145)

Cheers,
Javi

H.265 is not yet supported in Lightworks. You will need to either shoot footage in H.264 or another codec your camera supports or convert it with an external utility to a supported format.
For quality and ease of use I prefer Acrovid Intertake. It costs a bit of money but IMO is well worth it.
My standard workflow is to convert everything regardless of source to Cineform, a digital intermediate codec optimized for efficient editing, and uncompressed 48kHz 24bit studio standard PCM audio. Your files will take up a lot more storage space, but editing is fast, efficient, and trouble free compared to any H.xxx standard streaming codec.

It's worth updating to V14.5, since there is no advantages in keeping to V14.

If you don't want to invest in third party software, you could try Handbrake. Please see here: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=166802&Itemid=81

If you wish trying Cineform codec, prior to spending money on software, free VirtualDub2 supports converting h.265/HEVC to Cineform. sourceforge.net/p/vdfiltermod/wiki/Home/

Please note: With 2160p30 footage and quality set to 'High' (which in fact is a 'medium' bitrate achievable with Cineform), Cineform may create bitrates around 1 Gigabit per second (7.5 Gigabyte drive space per minute).
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

Hi,

Yes, I have Handbrake and I was wondering about Acrovid. Do you use to quickly make proxy files or are you actually using the coverted files as the ones that will be used when processing edit. Is it less hassle or easier than handbrake? (In handbrake I think you have to manually name and set each output file.)

Did some checking and can see Handbrake has an autonaming option so you don't have to one by one it.
