Lightworks 2021.3

This exciting new version comes packed with some really awesome new features that will help import/export workflows and new users coming to the application. More information about what is new can be found a bit further down. We are aiming for an aggressive release approximately six weeks from now, with a new Beta build every week until release.

Some of the new Features and Improvements can be seen below:

Browse and Import Media from Cloud Storage Providers

The Cloud is an important part of video production these days, whether it is backing up, or simply moving content about to make it more accessible on any device from any location. In Lightworks 2021.3 you can now add your favourite cloud storage provider directly to the list of ‘Library’ locations within a project. This makes editing content much faster and more accessible from anywhere. Once the cloud storage is added you can browse, play and import content directly from the cloud to your project for editing. We currently support: Google Drive, Google Photos, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive and pCloud

Upload Exports Directly To Cloud Storage Providers (Lightworks Pro Only)

In combination with browsing and import, we have made it even easier to get your created content back to your favourite cloud storage provider during the export process. Create your masterpiece, choose to export to the format of your choice (Lightworks Pro required) and select your cloud storage provider, it is that simple. We currently support: Google Drive, Google Photos, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive and pCloud.

Please note: Instructions for using the new cloud storage providers can be found here

New Startup Wizard and Improved Hints

This new panel appears for new users that have never run Lightworks before, this helps get acquainted with the application allowing users to set their preferred language, keyboard shortcut layout (those that are familiar with other applications) and even choose between Fixed and Flexible layout. The wizard also includes the sign in panel which has a better way of showing what licenses are active/inactive and includes a link to watching the ‘Quick Start Video’ (being updated to the latest version)

Creating your first new project in Lightworks can be a bit overwhelming so we have reworked the Hints that pop up to be much more visually appealing and appear relative to the area of the application they are referring to. There is even a new hint to ‘Take the tour’ giving a good overview of the project layout and how best to get started.

New Import Panel

The ‘Local files’ library has been given a much needed makeover to look and behave similar to Bins within the project. This allows you to choose how best to view your content prior to importing it, browse using the new treeview layout, filter content and see more metadata by choosing which column headers are visible within the library.

There are many more great new features and changes which can be found in the: Changelog pages
