Re: Lightworks release date

I have seen you refer to "release versions", "beta versions" and now "release candidates", is there any difference between those?

Re: Lightworks release date

Release versions are those that have gone through the beta testing stages and are deemed fit for release.The beta versions are new builds which often have new features to be tested by users, release candidates are beta versions which are close to being released, with mostly final fixes on each new build.

Having said that, a number of users do use the beta versions because they tend to have the latest bugs addressed. You can run both release and beta versions on the same machine. The beta versions are usually pretty stable these days.

Re: Lightworks release date

Thx for the explanation, I also see on the lightworks changelog page that they make a difference in versions by adding after the 12.5 version number "rc1", "rc2" and so on, are those all considered stable versions?

Re: Lightworks release date

The RCs are not officially the release version, so bugs still being fixed on a weekly basis as developers and users find them. Although, by this stage getting close to release, so it's stable for practical use by people in that you could use it on a production and not have a single issue come up, however, they're still fine tuning it and correcting any arising issues, so it's not stable in the sense that V12.5 is not finalized until the final release version comes out.

Of course, no software is bug free, but there is usually a beta version running in parallel with the release version of Lightworks and it's not unusual for a reported bug to be fixed and available in under a week in the next beta build. Some users edit commerical productions with the bets versions because the latest bugs on the current release version have been addressed.

As an example, here are the cross platform fixes found in the RC4 release notes:

" Updated initial Licensing/Welcome panel
Prevented application lock out when a corrupt room .TGA fails to load
Fixed 'Awaiting rendered media' appearance for assistant applications
Fixed missing key assignable commands
Fixed incorrect effect overlay if the Start/End of an edit is marked when dragging an dropping an effect
Fixed incorrect image appearing on the record edit viewer when trimmed beyond the clip bounds
Fixed jitters starting playback with higher resolution material (XAVC)
Fixed pop out original function not working correctly on a bin set to List view"
