I have a penpal in Korea who wants to knoe what life in California is like. I decided to do vlogs, but had no idea how to edit videos. This helped me a lot! Thank you very much!

Ander Cade Gaming says:

I normally don’t like tutorial channels, but this really helped. It was concise and straight to the point, and as a new editor this was the best source i’ve found.

THATGUY 63016 says:

is lightworks safe tho?

Skorfajo says:

okay that tutorial was amazing the only question u didn’t answered is how I can work with greenscreen etc. but i’m sure i will find out somwere else

striker1211 says:

Great video. Unfortunately my very FIRST video I tried to export came out messed up due to the different frame rates of source video. Uninstalling. You get what you pay for…. though it is amazing even Windows Movie Maker could handle outputting this same project at the correct framerate. Thumbs up on the video though.

Taylor Van Anne says:

This is a great tutorial. Straight to the point; no filler. The first 14 min of this video is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Paul M says:

Fantastic content!!!

Stina says:

This is such a beautiful tutorial omg I’m getting an A on this project

Simply_Scarzelin says:

how do I add audio and edit video audio? I couldn’t find it or I just have really bad eyesight.

phant0 says:

thank you for the tutorial. My only video editing experience I had before was with the crappy MS Movie Maker and although Lightworks is an infinitely more capable program it is also extremely counter intuitive to use for those who don’t have experience with these kinds of programs before. Trying to use this program without a tutorial will most likely result in an infinite loop of swearing caused by not being able to do what you want to do, then accidentally doing something entirely different you didn’t want to do, then making things ever worse by trying to undo it.

Poop ismism says:

Can this software be used commercially? Like to make a video for newly weds?

levi cruz says:

I right-clicked the video segment then chose “speed…”, but nothing popped up

Ock Knottin says:

How does one make a video like he did where your talking in front of the video you created…? Tia

EA. Edits says:

what if your video is stretched. How do you fix that. How do u make the video fit in all the way.

I tried to download pirate sony vegas from 7 different links, now I am here

muziekmindtwister says:

thanks, is there a way to just save the project? instead of exporting. It does save automaticly but that way i cannot switch back and forth between back up savings.

Rene Showalter says:

what software are you using to show us your screen as well as your avatar?? Tried Loom for my clients and it was horrible. Kept jumping and wouldn’t allow me to resume recording if I hit “stop” — thank you!

Laurent De Serres Bérard says:

When i use picture, and ”play” them, they are suddenly blurry… i dont get it… How can i use still pictures in a montage?

Olin Phillips says:

One question. Does Lightworks have any viruses?

Zak Gaming says:

Everytime I try to pull down the Music for the video, it just goes into the video itself… it’s bugging me a lot
