I just installed Liveworks, and my first clip plays super fast. Did the problem come from the Frame Rate setting when I create the Project? I've tried a couple now, but there must be another place to change the speed of the clip.

I did do a search in the FAQs and other places, but I'm stumped just getting started.

Welcome to the forum.

It has probably been recorded at a low frame rate, but to confirm please could you follow the directions in this sticky, so that users can see the technical details of your source footage: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=66072&Itemid=81

You've got a non standard target frame rate. Converting your media to say 30fps with Handbrake before importing it into Lightworks should solve your issue. This sticky will assist you with the settings: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=166802&Itemid=81

Thanks, that solved my problem. I've been trying out different video editing software, and this is the first one that didn't handle my original video. I can see I have big learning curve ahead for me. Thanks again!
