Lightworks V2021.1.1 beta release

The 2nd V2021.1,1 beta is now available.

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...4763&Itemid=81

This latest build fixes a few regressions that have crept in along with adding further improvements to audio handling with hardware I/O. Lightworks is still keeping changes to a minimum during this cycle and hope to be able to release within the next couple of weeks.

One new feature in V2021.1.1 is the graphic representation of missing media in transition overlaps. This is an area that causes difficulty for new users.

Option to the "Timeline->Settings" menu to configure whether or not tabbing stops at transition mid-points
The ability to rename Custom Formats on the project card and to generate 1080p proxies from larger file types (4K etc).

Re: Lightworks release date

What is hoped to be the final V2021.2 beta revision is now available for download.

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...8985&Itemid=81

This latest build resolves a long standing issue with exports being incorrect with 0% audio speed within the sequence and hopefully addresses the Console connectivity issues on Mac and other fixes.

Lightworks are working on a new set of video tutorials and guides.

They are looking forward to sharing the latest features of 2021.3 due in Beta imminently.

Lightworks Version 2021.2 released

Lightworks Version 2021.2 is now released for use on Windows Linux and Mac.

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...9387&Itemid=81

This the second major release under the new owners LWKS Software LTD and they are revealing the features in the 2021.3 Beta in the next couple of weeks.

Apart from many fixes. new features in V2021.2 include:

This release focuses on improvements in performance working with HEVC/H.265 media allowing you to create 1080p proxies from 4K media

Sequence Export Improvements
This latest release adds intelligence to the export panel allowing you to easily see what format option your sequence can be exported as, even allowing you to export if the exact sequence frame rate is not allowed/supported.

Transition Appearance Improvements
Lightworks now provides a clear indication that the incoming clip does not have enough media present to perform the transition (the red line and darker grey section) This indicates that playback will be incorrect over this section, giving you a clear warning that the effect needs adjustment.

Subtitle Workflow
Using a combination of ranged Cue Markers and BITC (Burnt in Timecode) functionality now performs a subtitle workflow

Find: Clip References Improvements
In Lightworks 2021.2 the ‘Jump to’ options have been restored and new search criteria has been added to make it even easier to find or create results based on these new options:

Set Default Frame Rate On Import
Lightworks 2021.2 allows you to set the default frame rate for any media that doesn’t have a frame rate (audio only files, EDLs, Image Sequences etc).

Improved the Batch Metadata panel
Flexibility has been extended even further to allow you to specify the name of another metadata field to copy text from (eg. ) within the ‘Value’ column. This is an extremely fast way of moving metadata between fields in huge chunks.

Lightworks V2021.3 beta relesed

The 7th V2021.3 beta build is now available/

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...emid=81#242632

This will be one of the last prior to release. This new build fixes some longer standing issues, including a couple of recent regressions.

This adds the ability to read the config.dat from the the 'Preferences' folder before looking for it in the run directory. 'frame rate' information to the export task log and ignored 'Auto' frame rate sequences when dragging and dropping selections from bins to sequences.
