This is such an exciting release for Lightworks as this is the first time in Lightworks' history that a release version is now available on two platforms, Windows and Linux.
To coincide with the release of 11.5 and all the user interface changes, we have updated the ten basic tutorial videos here We have also added in Shark Byte videos for most of the new features included in 11.5 here We recommend you take a look at these videos which will bring you up to speed with all the latest changes very quickly.
The free version now allows users to import all professional and consumer video formats natively on its timeline, with the ability to add titles, both features previously reserved for Pro users in 11.1.1. The difference between Free and Pro now is that the Pro version has a much wider range of output options, whereas the Free version is limited to web formats (ie MPEG4/H.264), at up to 720p. The Pro version also includes the advanced project sharing, 3D stereoscopic output, user-definable project locations, rendering and Hardware I/O support.
We have added more ways to buy Lightworks introducing monthly and annual subscriptions along with the ability to purchase the software for a one-off fee.
