Re: Lightworks release date

The third V14 release candidate is available:

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...emid=81#139391

Lightworks say that "This latest Release Candidate includes fixes for some serious issues that were identified and we are confident of releasing 14.0 imminently. We understand there are still some minor issues (some of which are already resolved for the scheduled 14.1 build)"

It's worth noting that there has been detailed beta testing by users over recent months.

Lightworks V14 released

Lightworks Version 14 is now released. The unique feature is the choice of two types of interface: the new fixed one and the flexible layout which is the classical one with a few changes. It runs on PC, Mac and Linux.

The fixed layout, which based on the one used in Flow Story, has tabs, which creates workspaces for different stages of the edit - log, edit vfx and audio. Newcomers should find this an easier introduction to editing and is suitable for those editing short form, fast turnaround productions,


The flexible layout is aimed at the long form productions and has a history in feature film post production. Users should keep an eye out for changes especially around the timeline (now called sequence, rather than edit). Note this video is for V12.6, the differences in V14 are cosmetic, together with some menu changes.


You can edit using various methods, including drag and drop, keyboard, onscreen icon controls and controllers

New Lightworks features include.

New user interface changes

Added new project browser layout with project search
Choose between Fixed and Flexible (Historic Lightworks) layouts on the project browser

Re: Lightworks V14.1 beta

The sixth Beta of version 14.1.0.0 Revision 102397 on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X is now available.

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...4019&Itemid=81

This build fixes several regressions that have crept in between versions. Lightworks is hoping to go to Release Candidate for the next build, with an aim of setting a release date shortly afterwards.

It adds the ability to set H.264 proxy bit rate according to quality level setting. to right-click a clip and choose 'Make -> Sequence' (I seem to recall this being a feature on earlier Lightworks versions), quality settings for CineForm AVI/MOV export option, to make syncs from sequence segments and other additions.including some support for Lightworks to run under Weyland on Linux.

Plus various fixes.
