Hi All,

Today we are releasing the next great version of Lightworks (14.5) on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X!

This latest version builds on the same success as 14.0, improving on the interface and adding in more support to help new users with their first experience with Lightworks.

We have added in native support for variable frame rate media, one of the biggest file types users intend on editing with Lightworks, without the need for transcoding prior to importing. This latest version also introduces higher GPU precision settings (16-bit, 16-bit Float and 32-bit Float *Windows only) allowing users to view their footage as intended and colour grade within Lightworks utilising the powerful new histogram tool.

Some of the exciting new features in version 14.5 can be seen below:

  • Added export option to Reaper (Lightworks Pro only)
  • Added support for Exporting/Transcoding/Rendering to Cineform HD/UHD AVI/MOV (Lightworks Pro Only)
  • Added varispeed information to FCP7 XML exports (Lightworks Pro Only)

  • Added support for AC-3 audio in .MP4/.MOV/.M4V/.M4A wrappers
  • Added support for AAC 32 float audio

  • Added ability to acknowledge project wide LUT setting on export
  • Added ability to set a Ranged Cue Marker (Start and End point)
  • Added ability to restore deleted clips from Milestones (which restores the entire clip with media link)
  • Added preliminary support for Blackmagic RAW files
  • Added support for media folder structures:
  • Added new trimming functionality to prevent a trim being extended beyond the media available at the head or tail
  • Added support for Quicktime MOV files with Alpha Channels
  • Added improved selection between bins in List and Tiles view
  • Added ELS licensing enhancements to enable targeted advertising to Free customers
  • Added ability to allow users to register an account while still running the automatic Free license
