Convert files to Lightworks from Gnome Files

So working in lightworks can be a pain, if you use the wrong file format as inputfiles.

Lightworks has a transcoding tool to import files, but this sometimes fails.

To eliviate this problem, I have made a script, where you can right click on a media file, and it converts the file to more Lightworks digestable format: mpeg2-wave

Fair warning, this uses a lot of disk space, but hey, you where not using that SSD/hdd for anything usefull anyway 🙂

First start up ny creating the folder where to put the script:

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts

chmod +x ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/Video-to-Lightworks


Make sure to  examin/change my scripts to your likings.



Now right click on those videofiles from Gnome Files and select scripts->Video-to-Lightworks
