LightworksIt has been almost a year to the day when Editshare shared that their award-winner NLE Lightworks was going through alpha/beta testing for Mac OS X, and since then the question on the minds of its supporters has been, “When will the public beta of the mac version be available?” Well, it looks like they’re much closer to completing the platform trifecta (Windows, Linux, and Mac), because Editshare has announced that they indeed have a date nailed down, as well as a few other pertinent pieces of information about Lightworks that you might want to know.

We talked a little bit about Lightworks and their plans for the future during NAB a few weeks ago. The team over at EditShare haven’t missed a beat since then, and now they’ve released the public beta of the Linux version of Lightworks. Although most of us aren’t currently using Ubuntu, my guess is that’s due to the fact that, until now, there haven’t been any truly professional or industry-recognized NLEs on that platform. Now, however, with an NLE that is truly powerful and operating system agnostic, editors will have the choice to work with the OS that suits their needs, not the OS that fits their software solution. Hit the jump for details on the release. More »

As we posted earlier in the week, EditShare announced the Mac OS X version of the long-standing NLE Lightworks. Though it has been around just as long as it’s competitor Avid, Lightworks has only recently completed the platform trifecta: being compatible across all major operating systems (Windows, Linus, and most recently Mac). It still has to go through more stages of beta testing, but EditShare demonstrated Lightworks for Mac at NAB 2013. Whether you’ve been a user of Lightworks for years or, if you’re like me, just recently became interested after the promise of a Mac version, the demo video is worth taking a look at: More »

You read that right boys and girls. Lightworks, the editing software that’s been an industry workhorse on multiple features for over 20 years has come out of its 18-month beta, and will be yours to download on May 28th at http://www.lwks.com (currently not live). There is no mention in the press release of what platforms the software will be available for on the release date other than stating that it will run “on a wide range of PC hardware”. However, it stands to reason that the Windows version will launch first, followed by Linux (a demo of which is being presented at NAB), and finally the OSX and 64-bit versions. Check out the list of new features after the jump: More »
