Hi All,

The full list of fixes and other improvements in version 2020.1 can be found in the 2020.1 Release Notes document on the Downloads page

Lightworks Pro Outright

If you own a Lightworks Pro Outright 14.x license, we are pleased to say this latest version (although renamed) will continue to work with your Outright 14.x license, you will not require a license upgrade.

Third Party Agreements

We continue to honour the agreements in place with our partners, Audio Network and Pond5 and have added Amazing Music Tracks to the mix.

The Boris FX agreement is slowly being phased out. The Lightworks Pro Year license now only comes with Boris Graffiti included, there is no longer any ability to select the Boris FX package. Over the coming months we will be slowly ending the promotion altogether, which means Lightworks Pro licenses will no longer include the Boris packages. This is due to the older FX architecture that requires an overhaul. We hope to include OpenFX in a future version allowing for much better partnerships with FX companies.

Windows 32bit Installer

This will be the last version of Lightworks that will include the Windows 32bit installer. We will no longer be developing the Windows 32bit build and as such, all future Windows versions will be 64bit only.

Thank You

To all those of you who have been reporting feedback during the Beta Cycle, you have our deepest thanks for everything you have done in helping to improve Lightworks! We appreciate all your hard work and patience recently while we tried to get Lightworks 2020.1 over the finish line. We have some exciting new features already lined up for the next version and hope to shout about these very soon.
