Maybe there are other reasons for the problems.
A crash could have damaged the sequence?
Or maybe a corrupted media file?

Maybe, but conforming the media to proxies is one first step to find out.

@Hugly Sometime ago, you gave me a script, MTS2MOV that converted the files in a directory via the command line. Would you happen to have another that can do H2642MPEG-2 I-FrameHD?

Sure.

It's for Linux Bash, isn't it?

Yes, I am running Lightworks on Ubuntu 18.04

This format is what my camera recorded for some foootage
pastebin.com/9kfw5hzT
was converted to this using your script:
pastebin.com/LPPbnAUz
And this was where I recorded in high resolution:
pastebin.com/NJU7pWws

Media is on two SSD's and have the AMD GPU Pro driver installed (rivision number 18.5), an RX 560 4 Gigabyte version of the GPU and an AMD Athlon x4 880K CPU.

Thank you for the helpful information.

I've attached the bash script "mpeg2intra". It converts media in mp4, mov, mts, and m2ts containers in the current directory to Mpeg2 I-Frame HD in mp4 container. To avoid name-collisions and renaming, it creates for the output "Mpeg2Intra" as subfolder of the current directory. Use it with progressive footage only. Please be aware that file size (bitrate) will increase significantly.

Tell how that works for you.

Just to say, you are the only person I'm aware of who isn't happy with the proxy features of V14.5.

Hugly,

Thank you very much for the script.

I think also converting source footage to the same frame rate also helped. The less variance, the better. That may also have put strain on the system. I will let you know once I made real progress how it is really going.
