PROBLEM IMPORT FILES 3 months, 2 weeks ago #214348

Hello!!!
I have installed the program Lightworks in computer with Lubuntu (Linux)
and am having trouble capturing clips in some formats.

I can't import ".avi" files.

when I try to open the ".avi" files these messages appears:

messages in task logs:

the file can”t be transcoded - using create link instead

Format unssuported

create link
Format unssuported

and the same message when i tried import in copy local
Format unssuported.

I would like you to help me so I can use this wonderful program.

Thanks

Hello,

AVI is a container format. It can carry different codecs (video and audio formats), some of those are supported others are not.

It would help to advise how to convert if you could post a Mediainfo report of the file.

THE MAIN QUESTION I HAVE IS IF LIGHTWORKS HAS LIMITATIONS TO WORK WITH DIFFERENT CODECS. AND IF LIGHTWORKS DO NOT ACCEPT THESE CODECS I DO NOT UNDERSTAND POEUQ YOU CANNOT 1: TRANSCODE OR 2: CREATE A LINK. AND, TO KNOW THE MEDIA INFO, I REFER TO THIS PAGE

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT FILES I MUST DOWNLOAD OR INSTALL. THANKS FOR THE HELP

Under the link I posted above it says:

Download MediaInfo here. You'll find it under the "Tools" tab.
If you have trouble finding it under Tools, here's the direct link: mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download/Ubuntu

Also, could you please not type with caps lock on? It's considered shouting and is extremely discourteous.

To attempt to answer at least part of your question: Yes, Lightworks has limitations with the codecs that it can use. Every video edit program does. You will find a list of the supported import and export codecs and containers in the version comparison. When we see the MediaInfo report we will be able to give more help.

Thank you very much for your help. I hope you can excuse me writing in capital letters in a forum. My inexperience in these matters has made me make that mistake. I will follow your lead and reply back to you when I have tried your advice
