TOPIC: Is there a way to Preview a file without exporting?

Is there a way to Preview a file without exporting? 1 month, 1 week ago #223882

I cant find it, even after googling, if there is a way to just preview the file to test the timing.


I am making a timelapse which has multiple clips at 8000 speed, lightworks struggles to keep up but exporting is doable, just takes a long while

I have 64GB of Ram , but its my CPU that maxes out not being able to keep up while viewing playback.

1) Can i preview a file more easily?
2) Can i reduce the preview quality so that viewing and editing is faster?
3) Can i just choose a section to export?
4) Is there maybe another way i should work?

You can use the internal proxy editing, which allows you to edit at a lower resolution. This should put less strain on your computer, so letting you to play the edit before exporting.

Mark and parking the section you wish to export is an option.
