Hi all,

FYI I am a complete newbie to video editing and Lightworks and hope for your help.
I have just downloaded an 8 min clip from the internet and imported it into my timeline. As soon as i try to edit it it crashes and says " Lightworks is not responding"
I have tried other clips that i already have on my laptop (including a 45 min clip) and they work fine. Is this 8 min clip corrupt or am i doing something else wrong.

Any help would be great

Hello
I am running 14.5 on a Ryzen 6core machine with 16gb of ram.
I have posted before about lightworks and the audio delay with cell phone media.
Most recently, I have experienced the same thing as mentioned here after seeing audio lag on my timeline and rendered files.

I rendered the files just to see. Now, Whenever I open the project, my program freezes and crashes 10-20s into the playback on the timeline.

My files are .mp4 and i converted them to .mpg in Eyeframe with change in results.

Update: It appears the crashing may have been the files I converted in eyeframe. Not sure why tho.......

AFAIK EyeFrame is no longer in development, may be best to consider that when deciding to use it.
BETA System
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT

V14.5 supports variable frame rate media from phones, ensure that it's selected in the project menu in the top left of the screen.

What preset of Eyeframe converter creates files in MPG container?

Please note: Only presets under the 'Production' tab are suitable for editing. Some presets under the 'Delivery' tab may make trouble when editing. My personal favorite (with EFC) is 'MPEG2 I-Frame HD'.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...
