Hi All,

We are very pleased to announce the second major release of Lightworks 2021.2 under LWKS Software LTD on Windows, Linux and Mac!

This latest version is probably the biggest release in the last ten years! Changing some of the fundamental foundations to allow us to build a more powerful and flexible product over the coming years.

Some of the exciting new features in version 2021.2 are listed below. Clicking on the links will take you to the 'New in 2021.2' page:

Sequence Export Improvements
Subtitle Workflow
Find: Clip References Improvements
Set Default Frame Rate On Import
Improved the Batch Metadata panel
H.265/HEVC Performance Improvements
1080p Proxy Generation

The full list of fixes and other improvements in version 2021.2 can be found in the 2021.2 Release Notes document on the Downloads page

IMPORTANT Information

Due to the complexities of removing the project frame rate in 2021.1 there is still limited backwards compatibility with earlier versions of Lightworks (2020.1, 14.x etc). Whilst we hope most users will now be running the latest version, the same rules apply when updating from a version prior to 2021.1 a project copy will be made and any changes will not be visible when stepping backwards. You can safely step backwards from 2021.2 to 2021.1 and any changes will be present.

ShuttlePRO Customers

Contour will be making an update to their current driver to support this latest version of Lightworks. In the meantime to get your ShuttlePRO working with this latest release, please make a copy of the ‘Lightworks’ settings within the Contour app and then point it at the current release app/bundle.


We have updated the 'Quick Start Guide', the 'Installation and Activation Guide' and the current "Release Notes" to cover Lightworks 2021.2, all of which are available on the Downloads page. Please do let me know if there are any issues with the updated guides.

There is still a lot of work going on regarding the "User Guide" which remains on 2020.1 for now. We are working on updating this and looking at making it available in a new online format later this year.

Thank You

This Beta Cycle has perhaps gone on longer than we wanted but this is only due to fixing up some long standing issues. The whole team would like to express their thanks to all those of you helping out and reporting issues as you encounter them. The Beta Cycle has been so critical to releases over the years and you continue to help make releases great, thank you all and we cannot wait to bring you the exciting features of 2021.3 in Beta in the next couple of weeks.
