Version 12.0.1 Release on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X is now available to download!


This latest version of Lightworks is purely a maintenance release to address several issues that were raised over the last few weeks. The most important of these issues were performance problems with Linux Kernels 3.14 (and higher) plus sync output issues using Blackmagic hardware. The full list of fixes and features can be found on the Changelog page.

With this latest release we have also included new Colour Correction Preset effects along with 12 new sound EQ presets. Accompanying these presets are new tutorial videos covering all the FX improvements in version 12, including how to get the best out of the new presets, with detailed descriptions of how and when to use them: www.lwks.com/videotutorials (Videos will be live shortly)

The Lightworks Forum is an important resource for new and experienced users and it has finally received a much needed makeover: www.lwks.com/forum The whole look and feel has been changed to bring it more up to date and to give users a better experience, making it feel cleaner and less cluttered. We have also renamed two of the buttons on the menu bar for clearer explanation "Learning" -> "Tutorials" and "Support" -> "Help"

Users running 12.0.1.x Beta builds will need to update to this release build. It is strongly recommended that users backup their project folder before installing any new build of Lightworks.

Version 12 of Lightworks introduces some incredible new features to the application. Primarily the Content Manager which is a very useful way of managing all your media, edits and bins in a sensible way so that you can always find your media or your bins easily.

To help bring users up to speed with the latest changes in version 12 we have produced several tutorial videos including a Quickstart Video which we recommend users watch to get up to speed with version 12 of Lightworks.

Some of the exciting new features in version 12 can be seen below:
  • Added new Content Manager structure
    • Bins and Groups (previously racks) are now all visible within the content manager
    • Multicam Bins (previously Sync groups) are now all visible within the content manager
