The latest maintenance Release for version 12 is now available to download on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X!


The 12.0.2 release includes powerful integration with Blackmagic's Fusion 7.5 giving users a very effective editing and composting solution:

  • Automatically connect Loader & Saver nodes in initial Fusion comp
  • Prompt for loading the rendered Fusion effect to populate the edit
  • Tidied the Fusion Settings panel
  • Changed wording "Launch" -> "Launch Fusion"
  • Explicitly provide a Fusion FXT file (so that the comp->FXT process is not required
  • Updated correct region to display in Fusion (previously limited to 1000 frames only)
  • Introduced better 'Awaiting media' screen for Fusion and Assistant Application effects
  • Improved 'Replace with media' function for Fusion effect

This latest release also includes support for Boris FX plugins within the 64bit Windows version. The full list of fixes and features can be found in the Release Notes document

To celebrate this latest release we are offering the Lightworks Pro Yearly license with an extra 6 months free until the 2nd January 2015. www.lwks.com/shop

Accompanying the new version are several new tutorial videos: Working with the Video Routing panel, Working with the Audio Mixer Panel and Working with Effect keyframes

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:
