Lightworks is taking the editing community by storm, with over a quarter of a million downloads since the Lightworks Beta program was announced. With the full Windows release of Lightworks now available, EditShare has also shown a working 64-bit version of Lightworks and a Linux version of the editing system.
The 64-bit version of Lightworks will allow users to obtain the maximum possible performance from their computer hardware, as well as providing the best environment for editing with Long-GOP codecs.
Lightworks has been completely re-architected to make it easier to port to multiple operating systems, with the Linux version being the first non-Windows version to be shown by EditShare, Lightworks will be the only tri-platform professional NLE and will allow users of multiple operating systems to enjoy the benefit of Lightworks’ lightning-fast workflow. At this stage, the Linux version has only been shown as a technology preview, progress is expected to be rapid and announcements will follow in in the near future.
