If you have that will be the cause. Khaver may know the meaning if the message. In the meantime. It’s better to travel well than to arrive Last Edit: 4 years, 1 month ago by hugly.
Re: Media offline in Lightworks 14 4 years ago Hi all, I’m experiencing the same problem and all threats are about v12 and 11th beta’s.
Reopening a project all media files showed offline and when I try to relink the missing media option its not available. Some threats talk about using different drives; all my material is on C; in the same folders, I can open the videos in any viewer, I can import the videos again in same project contents, put them in the timeline; but I can’t update the Offline files. Any help will be really appreciated. Attachments: This image is hidden for guests.
Please log in or register to see it. Allow some questions: 1. Did you delete any clip from within the project, or other projects? Did you copy clips to other projects? Did you remove or add Media location s from Project Menu. Is the project created with V14 or V Have you created internal proxies? V14 5. Then Project Contents drag to timeline. Have no idea what is this One week editing and yesterday all projects got media offline in a row.
Last week I had several crushes, with the offline message, but everything ended up fine relinking the files. And why ALL projects has the links broken. Thanks a lot for your worries. Last Edit: 4 years ago by cAbellanosa.
Hope for a while Trying everything I selected more than one offline files and surprisingly “Relink missing This image is hidden for guests. LWKS crashes with this message: This image is hidden for guests. Sorry, but we can’t read the messages, please could you use a photo application to the select just the messages and post them. Alternately, making a pdf of the screen grab would also assist, since users can zoom into that in order to read the messages. I made an improvement I imported again all files, then I clicked with right button everywhere in timeline.
I selected “Find” and then “Clips to fill sequence”. It appeared a dialogue box; just “Do it” and all available were updated. I then deleted the Media offline contents, nothing happened so I guess they are now just useless data. Here is the message in PDF format: This attachment is hidden for guests. Did “Find.
Clips to fill sequence” bring all missing content in your sequence s back? Last Edit: 4 years ago by hugly. Yes Right after click on “Do it” there was a dialogue text saying what was able to fix and what didnt I did not put too much attention on that when I saw the missing files be repaired.
I guess I had a software problem because LWKS performance were getting worst til the point to crash just opening a project. I think the mistake was not to remove the old version before install V14; because from that time LWKS wasnt fine taking a lot of time to play a video, several crashes, offline videos from one sesion to another As you seem to have projects created with V File analysis of this kind of files could make Lightworks apparently hang and might cause crashes entering projects.
Mainly files with 30fps or above, downloaded from the web, or recorded with mobile phones, web cams, screen capture software, or converted with Handbrake or other x based video converters might be affected. I still don’t understand why you lost suddenly connection after restart to all imported clips together with the ability to relink missing media.
Can you remember what you did as last activity before you encountered that problem? Thank you, I’ll read your comments carefully and more about importing files to avoid future problems.
I had probably V11 which I could not open a month ago; so I downloaded the new one and I installed it over the old version. Getting to the new interface with a new project I experienced some problems that I though it was by the new software demanding more power to the CPU. Also I remember to help on that reducing the computer space memory. Problems were getting worst with the offline issue, but I was able to fix them relinking the files. That happened from one session to another with no reason.
BUT I believe some of the crashes I had with badly rebooting ways it could have damaged something in the software. ALL projects old either new ones got the offline issue. Trying here and there and as I said I went at the point where I was not able to open a project without a crash; so I definitely removed LWKS and installed again. Then I found out that importing again the videos and selecting “Clips to fill sequence” it returned the timeline.
Yesterday I was able to finish the project and expending almost 2 hours working until LWKS started to need huge amount of time to respond to any command even minutes. No other software except internet browser with pages were open.
At certain point Windows asked me to reduce the system color palette to reduce the CPU usage!!! Thank you hugly for all your concerns.
