How To Edit With Lightworks FREE Version – Part 1

This is how i edit with Lightworks editing software. I use the free version for all of my videos. I am not a professional editor. This is the very simplistic version of basic editing, and might not be the “correct” way to edit professionally.

Gary Orlando says:

I still cant find the tools toolbar. It doesn’t show up. On my opening screen there is a gear on the top right that is system settings. Opening this shows me a “user interface” Under that is, key assignment, appearance,wording,full screen window,show hints,show tooltips and project layout. Any help would be appreciated

Calculated Gaming says:

I just downloaded lightworks and now the play button is on the video, not the bottom of the screen, and it doesn’t say in and out. Did they change it, cause now I don’t know what to do.

Good vid MrsMel, looking forward to part 2

Monkey Man says:

I am not able to like see the “Yellow Bar” thing that helps lower the sound of certain bits of the vid. It is just a white dotted line that runs across and my mouse doesn’t change when I go over it.

ecw141685 says:

you are awesome,great explanation!!!!

Ju Rehman says:

hi, Thanks for the nice video. How can we add text or slides or subtitle here?

Joeyfishing says:

Great video! I’ve watched others put out there by pro editors and didn’t get it. You’re a regular person and I understand you so much better.

Ayushi Nagalia says:

perfect <3

Rami Agonistes says:

Hey Mel. Did you make a part 2 because if you did I couldn’t find it. One thing you didn’t cover that I’d like to see is edit a video clip but rearrange the order. For example the clip in your video had stuff cut out (in/out tool) but it was in chronological order. Hope the question/request makes sense.

DatGuySmoke ! says:

how do i get my tool bar?

TheCuteArrow says:

I don’t have the controls in the bottom how do I get them?

Calculated Gaming says:

I can’t get my computer to actually play the video when an intro is added into lightworks, even though it is a very good computer. Is it something with the software, or do you need a super good computer to use it without lagging?
