Am using LW 12.0.5e beta and OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 on a Macbook Air. I have successfully created over 12 short videos for YouTube using Lightworks. However, the current project (which is essentially no different from the previous ones) is giving me grief at a point where I am wanting to import a number of jpg files. As soon as I go to open the folder containing these files LW crashes. It happened with v12.0.2, so I thought maybe the latest version would fix the problem. No. I moved the folder from my GoogleDrive to a local drive in case the Googledrive was too full -- it was indicating 14.5 Gb of 15 Gb used, but still no joy. I tried opening another room in my project and imported a rough cut archive I had saved -- no joy, same issue. I restarted my Mac to no avail. Help!

Are there any zero-length files in the folder that you're trying to import from, or anything else that seems untoward? You could try selectively moving some of the files into a different folder to see if you can isolate the file(s) that are causing the issue.

Not to my knowledge, but I renamed several .gif files as .png and that could have been my undoing. I will investigate.

Erkk. I reprocessed all files as jpg using Graphic Converter, and in the process replaced all spaces between words in the file names with underscores. No luck.

Oops. I forgot to delete the original files. My bad! Okay, everything is good. Thanks.
