Swiftmind says:

Finally someone explained the overlapping problem. I am new to lightworks and this has been confusing me all day. Since I added a whole sub-clip, I kept getting the dang insufficient overlapping. Thanks so much!

Turbo Toke says:

Atlantis Productions Alain says:

CellyCel says:

Brooklyn Turner says:

I have no problem getting the effects in but when I add them, the whole video starts lagging and skips the transition. Any advice?

CyanFlake says:

Hlib Bondarevskyi says:

Tutorial is beautiful, and the program itself is crap.Just glitches(

Aidan Smith says:

Hey,just wondering, how would I save this video on my computer, not just in lightworks, I have to put this on a USB drive to take to school.

Anthony Sgambati says:

It only half solved the problem… I have a fully cut up and edited sequence and this works on some cuts but on others it can’t seem to “steal” frames from the other. I’ve tried centered here, to here, from here, on one clip or the other or on both. Still not working


If I play them out side of light works they play normal but if I doble click them in light works they play upside down

Amos Tan says:

thanks for your very helpful series on lightworks!

Ryan Goff says:

Oh my god! Finally a video that makes sense! Cannot thank you enough for being clear and simple in your explanation.

Will Cureton says:

Extremely Clear

Haxnicks says:

Wow – SO well explained. Much better than the official site!

Essence says:

Can you do a video on how to speed up and slow down clips please?

Kacprel says:

Thanks, just what I wanted 🙂


There’s a problem that when I put mi clips in light works they appear upside down. Help

Arif Akdogan says:

Seriously well explained and to the point, solved my problem

sulamith105 says:

Is the duration editing a pro version feature? Duration is grey for me and I don’t have a drop down menu beside it. :/

Holly Lowe says:

thank you your videos are definitely the best of all the Lightworks tutorials I’ve tried! Is there a way of speeding a clip up but gradually ie. not the whole clip but that it gradually gets faster or slower?

andywild76 says:

Your videos are the best Lightworks tutorials. I thought I was going mad or that there was a bug when dropping the Mix effect but figured it out in the end before I watched your video. Thank you anyway. Please make more tutorials!
