Re: Lightworks NLE for Mac

For people thinking of using the Lightworks console with the Mac, it has been confirmed that it works.

No news yet of the Mac beta version, but this may be related to the delay in the 11.5 version (was 11.2) being generally beta tested. A few last minute issues came up with the beta 11.1.1, which has delayed its release version by about a month

Re: Lightworks NLE version 11.1 for Win. available

Lightworks version 11.1.1 is now available as a release. This is what they term a maintenance release for 11.1 and includes "Windows 8.1 support, improvements to H.264/MP4 handling (faster imports and creation of the .lvix files) and offline activations for the ELS licensing" plus "some longer standing issues, including XDCAM HD handling".

New Lightworks Release 11.1.1 Now Available To Download

They're hoping to have the 11.5 public beta available this week for both Windows and Linux. This is their next major release and is a half way between the 11 version and the 12 version, which is due early next year.

Re: Lightworks revealing 11.2 at IBC

The public beta of what was 11.2 and is now 11.5 has been released by Lightworks, It's available in Windows and Linux versions, this now consists of two builds:.deb and .rpm (previously .deb only). A number of the new features are only available on the Pro version.

Lightworks say that 11.5 is considerably different from 11.1.1 and testers experience issues that they did not have in the current release build.

Lightworks NLE meets BMCC

Short and to the point - would Lightworks be a preferred choice for processing BMCC footage? What hardware would be suggested? Thanks in advance.

Re: Lightworks NLE version 11.1 for Win. available

I'm only a user of lightworks, I haven't done the workflow for BMCC. I'm assuming you want to shoot RAW and I believe in that case you'd want to use Resolve. My understanding is that you cut it in Lightworks, export an AAF, import that into Resolve and grade it. For a detailed answer I suggest asking on the Lightworks forum, where you should get an answer from some one who has used the BMCC with Lightworks.

Lightworks isn't that demanding in hardware, especially if you want to use proxies. If it's the right NLE for you may depend on the the type of films you make. Lightworks is traditionally a narrative centred NLE and if that's the type of films you make, it might be worth considering. NLE are personal things and what works for one person might not for another.

You can find the systems specs here: Tech Specs

I gather one of the upcoming Shark Byte video tutorials is about using AAF with Resolve and Lightworks.

Re: Lightworks NLE version 11.1 for Win. available

As a point of interest, the Lightworks developers are across the early feedback on the 11.5 beta, even on a Sunday. There has been quite a few thoughts put in and reactions to changes, if anyone wants to beta test, these early stages can enable you to have input to a NLE.

Re: Lightworks NLE version 11.1 for Win. available

Following nearly a week of feedback, where almost a 100 topics were brought up by testers, the second public beta 11.5 has been released: New Lightworks Version 11.5.b Now Available as Public Beta

Amongst the fixes and changed, they have modified the default appearance of Lightworks slightly and removed the restriction so Free users can also change the appearance.
