TOPIC: Light works refusing to import

Light works refusing to import 1 month ago #213745

so, this is my first time ever trying to make a video. i've recorded the vid using OBS, and i've opened up lightworks for the first time. at first i cannot find the file from lightworks, so i tried dragging and dropping it into lightworks and got this window. (see attachment)
does anyone know why this would be happening and how to fix it?


Moderated: This isn't a bug, it's an operational issue. I've moved it to a more appropriate forum - jwrl.

Welcome to the forum.

It looks like you're trying to import MKV, which isn't supported by Lightworks. Try converting before importing using Handbrake. This sticky should assist you: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=166802&Itemid=81

With an OBS recording, remuxing MKV to MP4 should be sufficient. That's much faster than converting, because this process just copies the media streams without re-encoding.

EDIT: now i wish i'd done what hugly said... maybe next time
