Hi Everyone,

I am trying to import a 4k video from my mobile. It is getting imported but the videos just hangs in the middle, and all I can see is a stuck video with sound. How can I overcome this? What should I do?

This is my first short film and I want to get it ready in any case.

Thanks,
Nikhil

Welcome to the forum.

Your computer may be struggling with editing 4k video. Try using the internal proxy editing in Lightworks, details can be found on P144 and P125 of the V2020.1 User Guide, which can be found in downloads > documentation.

What OS are you editing on. Mobile phone videos can be a bit squirrely with their frame rates and perhaps this is causing an issue?

If you are able to transcode the video prior to importing, perhaps that might help.

On a mac, you should be able to use Quicktime to re-encode the file for example. On linux you could use ffmpeg to do the same. I'm not sure about Windows but there must also exist a free framework for this.

Try Shutter Encoder. It installs on Windows, Linux and Mac.
