Hi all.

Just starting using Lightworks and it's great, thanks for everyone's work on it.

I am just wondering if there is a way, while editing, of moving tracks for less than a second in direction?

I ask because I'm trying to sync up the audio and video tracks and a second being the minimum distance that you can move one of them seem quite large! This is while fully zoomed in, by the way.

Apologies if this has been answered somewhere else (I couldn't find it) or if it's something so trivial I'm missing it.

Welcome to the forum.

You can move tracks to an accuracy of one frame. If you zoom in on the timeline you will see the single frame read out (the right hand numbers of the 4 number block) appearing. The segments (clips)in the timeline don't break down into visual frames, you read out the frame numbers.

You cannot to subframe, but this isn't required for syncing up audio and video.

Hi briandrys,

Thanks for that, but when I zoom in I can't see the single frame read out that you mentioned.

If I could do it by frame that would be great. Is it a setting I'm missing?

I enclose a screenshot of my timeline etc.

I'm not sure what video pictures you're getting because the screens are black. Here are the frame counts in the tmeline, this is fully zoomed in and you'll see that the right pair of numbers are progressing one frame at a time. If you use "," or "." on your keyboard you'll see the playhead jump one frame at a time.
