Some of the most important new features are:

  • Updated UI for Windows 10
  • New fast CRC checksum validated backups in the archive tool - provides high confidence in your copies!
  • Auto cropping for cinema framing - makes it easy to match with anamorphic footage
  • 4K DownScale now supports LUTs and curves as well as aspect ratio and cropping! Do it all in one operation!
  • Wrap to MOV now supports aspect ratio! Quick wrap those anamorphic shots! Super fast!
  • Apply Photoshop curves - a great alternative to LUTs!
  • Enhanced scope functions and new viewer - scopes now support selected LUT or curve
  • Added .png image sequence output
  • Added wrapping to Matroska support (.mvk)
  • Added high-quality Animated GIF support for web use
  • Added No I-Frame AVI support for datamoshing
  • Control of burn-in font size - click on font size for dialog
  • Several performance improvements - bug fixes in image sequence renders for non-PAL clips
  • The addition of fast CRC validated backups should be of key interest to on-location DITs managing multiple copy operations.
  • Auto-cropping will allow you to crop your video as you transcode - for cinema frame sizes of 1.85:1, 2.35:1 and 2.39:1
  • Photoshop curves can be built by using the Scopes and scrubbing to a representative frame (properly exposed for the clip) then use the new camera icon to grab a 48-bit TIFF image. You can then open that TIFF in Photoshop and use the curve tool to create the appropriate correction, then save that setting as a curves preset - which can then be applied to a transcode batch!
  • 48-bit TIFF sequences can be used in Adobe Camera RAW for the best of noise reduction and color control - images saved from ACR can then be used directly in most NLE or color grading applications, or ported right back into Convert V3 for conversion to your favorite video format.

Lightworks doesn't open a AVI file because it's to big? - by: Slimy_GameCrash
I wanted to edit a video I captured with Dxtory, but it just gives me a black video preview and I can't edit it. If I open the file with VLC, it works but Dxtory uses diffrent audio tracks and VLC doesn't so half of my audio is gone if I play it with VLC. The file beneath it just works fine.

I you need more info, just ask.
Thank for helping me! ]]>

Where is my resolution 1920 x 1080 - by: mastersystem60
I'm under linux (ubuntu) 15.10 and I just bought the pro version of Lightworks.
I just realized that I do not have the ability to export in Full HD 1920x1080 as Blender.

My videos are made with my Nikon D800 in 1920x1080.

Thank you in advance and see you soon ]]>

With 2.6, random clips that used to work now show up as black - by: SimonM7
I've been doing YouTube videos looking at old games for a while now, and I've accrued quite a library of "raw" material. I use Bandicam to record these video clips, and everything has been going fine up until - and including - the previous version of Lightworks.

With the latest version however, some videos have simply stopped importing properly. There is no pattern to which videos work and which don't. They aren't all above a certain size nor differ in resolution.

The current project I'm working on uses rather large files, but files as small as 1.6GB import as black, with audio. They all use the same codec, "Motion JPEG" and settings are exactly the same for all of them.

I've made and uploaded projects using all these clips in Lightworks before, but now something simply broke. I have no idea what. I'm really stressed out about deadlines, too, and I didn't save a backup of the previous version of Lightworks.]]>

Lightworks 12.6 (free version) has removed the ability to export to a file. - by: Codecs / Importing / Exporting / Transcoding Tue, 09 Feb 2016 17:47:16 +0000 Explanation of YouTube settings - by: Quitch
So, given that I can control bit quality in the H.264 profile what is the reason to use the YouTube one unless you want to do a direct upload? Is it configured to use Google's recommended YouTube settings for MP4?]]>

Can't import QT's that use animation codec - by: fxgogo
Lightworks only reads the audio part of the file, not the video.

I can see the video fine in QT (pro version), VLC, Resolve and Blenders video editor.

The clips all range in the 1 - 2 gig range. Having the files on my system drive or an external drive makes no difference.

Do any of you have any thoughts as to what might be happening?

I am using Windows 7 64bit, 8 gig of Ram with Lightworks 12.6
