    Lightworks - FINALLY here 29th nov

    Heads up, guys and girls: I just received a notification that Lightworks open source edition is scheduled for download on the 29th - this month! :-)

    Hmm, "effect layers with node-based layering tool" - tasty. Downer: no mac or linux yet (late 2011), and I will have to update my Vista to Win7.

    Here's the newsletter for those who are interested:

    Hi,

    It's any official post from them where they say the do not support Vista 64?

    If it works on XP 32 bits and Windows 7 32 bits and 64 bits, I can't see why I'ts not going to work on Windows Vista 64???

    Any luck on getting news from them?

    Is there anyone left out there that can commit to a public schedule without embarrassing themselves? It seems like a trend, isn't it? :--)

    Edit: It seems the url is different now. Yet the comment above still holds, I think.

    I just read about this. I wonder what the odds are of getting it built into CORE.

    Article on it:
    http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/11...tor-to-be-rel/

    Actually I think it would be more likely to see Speed Edit built into CORE than this.

    Just out of curiosity, is this considered to be up there with FCP and Avid Media Composer?
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    Honestly I had never heard of it until now. Their list of films looked pretty impressive at first glance, but I looked closer at it and noticed only maybe 3 of those films are recent, though that might not mean anything since it's obviously not a complete list.

    I found this video demo of it. Looks like it would take me a while to get used to coming from Premiere.

    The report from many who use it is that they consider it superior to the Big 2; it has nailed the immediacy of editing from the very beginning in a way that MC and FCP never have.

    I'm excited to be able to check it out for myself in two weeks.

    Review at Creative COW

    2-page article on Creative COW:
    http://library.creativecow.net/batti...d/lightworks/1

    Scott Hill: "Lightworks has been great. I have used Lightworks on every film I've edited up until this one. I'm currently editing a movie that required me to use an Avid. The silver lining is that I can speak intelligently when comparing the two systems. My assistant and I were asked by Avid to submit a wish-list of items that we were able to do on the Lightworks, but not on an Avid. That took days to type up. We both want to scream to Hollywood: There is a better way!"
