I have always been putting an outro at the end of my videos but for a while, i was remaking it every project but now I started copying it to every new project and just now it started to say problem copying so now I'm not sure how I should approach this. any ideas?

If you make use of stock in your projects, be they intros, outros or links, the best way to handle them is to set up a dedicated project for the purpose. Then just copy them into your new projects as needed. It's the way that the professionals work.

[EDIT] And keep an archive of that project somewhere safe, to protect against corruption. If you're always copying from a known good version you should have no problems.

Once you've fixed it, archive it. Right click on your edit viewer and select "Export > Backup > Lightworks archive" and check "Include local media" and "Include linked media". Alternatively, click on the project name at the top left of the screen and choose "Details > Make backup.." to archive the whole project.

It's inevitable that from time to time you will get project corruption. Maintaining archives of known good versions will help you avoid that.


[EDIT] RWAV and I cross posted. Answer him first - he may have a fix for you.

Does the target project have a different project frame rate?

Mixed refers only to the allowed source material, but the project frame rate is 24 fps, and so are the sequences.

"Auto" can also be problematic.
For example (a test), with LW 14.0 I could not copy sequences from a 25 fps project to an empty "Auto" project. It worked with LW14.5 RC 10, but this does not have to apply to a Auto project with media.
I do not use "Auto".

What project frame rate does your sending project have?
The actually used project frame rate can be found in the project settings of your open project.

The framerate on the outro project is 30(i think I set it on auto) and on the project I'm copying it to is 24(i set it at mixed). I'm assuming that's my problem but how do I fix this?
thanks for all the help so far. I'm very new to this

It is best to decide what frame rate the project should have prior to creating a new project.

Qualitativ it is best to choose the project frame rate of the material used. Disadvantage is the limited compatibility with other frame rates.

Personally, I mostly use 24 fps (same as "Mixed rates") because it's usually compatible with higher frame rates as well. The loss of frames is the disadvantage.

so i guess now if i set my projects to be 24 fps it will work and im assuming that its fine that my source is 30 as long as its higher than 24. am i correct?

Compatibility of 24 fps projects with higher frame rates only applies to the imported material.
However, you can not copy a sequence created in a 24fps project into a 30 fps project.
For your purpose, the project frameaders should be identical.

If your media to be imported is always 30 fps, then you can create all future projects with a 30 fps project frame rate.

If you use media with different frame rates, or you want to leave this option open, then you can create the future projects consistently with a 24 fps project frame rate.

Another possibility would be to export your "outro" sequence and import it into the new project. However, quality losses would be visible with the Free License.
