Recently I updated Lightworks to 12.0 but now whenever I try importing any of my videos (I have a gaming channel) it makes my voice sound really deep. I use Nvidia Shadowforce to record videos. I want my voice to sound normal but I can't seem to figure it out, could anyone help me? This did not happen before the 12.0 update

I have the same problem. For me the new update speeds up my game footage and lowers the pitch of my voice. You can look at evidence of it here:

I was not the moderator that removed your post, but I have read it. How you can reasonably expect a response when you take such an abusive tone is beyond me. I understand that you're frustrated, but the bulk of us here are users just like you. Please don't take it out on us.

That said, unfortunately you're not providing enough information for people to assist you. To help fix problems we need at least a minimum amount of information. You should read this thread to see what is needed and how to obtain and post it.

Then I feel sure that someone will be able to offer you some assistance.

Could you please post a screen shot of your LW audio mixer panel for the edit?

(This is the first time I've ever posted on a forum--gads, am I behind the times!--so please bear with me if I commit any posting blunders...)

I'd been trying out Lightworks 11.5 free version, and just moved--or rather, got moved--to version 12. As soon as I created a 60 fps project in version 12 I found I had the same problem discussed in this thread--audio running slower than, and out of sync with, the video.

The first clips I had this problem with were GoPro .mp4 files. The properties:

720p
59.94 fps
rate 130 kps
audio sample rate 32 khz

I then tried loading a .mov clip from a JVC 790 camcorder:

720p
59.94
537 kps bitrate
audio sample rate of 48 khz

The JVC clip had the same problems as the GoPro clip, so the problem would seem to have nothing to do with the clip type.

I then created a 30 fps project, and loaded some older standard def 480/29.97 clips. These played back just fine.

I then decided to create a project using the automatic setting. Using that setting cleared up the audio problems with both the GoPro and JVC clips. Ultimately I created an edit in the automatic setting project in which I strung together a 59.94 GoPro shot, a 480 standard def shot transcoded to 59.94, and an untranscoded standard def shot. That edit exported without any problems whatsoever, at 59.94 fps.

I haven't tried any other resolutions yet, and of course there are other 720p codecs lurking out there for which the automatic setting might not work. Still, it would seem creating a project using the automatic setting provides a workaround to the audio problem, at least if you're originating in 720p.

That being said, I think the folks at Lightworks really need to fix this problem. After all, the whole point of providing the free version of Lightworks is to persuade you to invest in the pro version; and who's going to want to invest in a nle program that starts by goobering up your sound?

A short piece of your original file format would be good to have - or at least a MediaInfo readout from that. Can you records a few seconds only?
