In Lightworks you can use the mouse wheel in a couple of useful ways :

- when the mouse is over an edit viewer or timeline, moving the mouse wheel will cause the playhead to jump to the next/previous cut (or mark)

- when the mouse is over a drop-down menu button, the wheel causes the button to cycle through the available options (so you don't have to reveal the menu at all if you know which options are available and which one you want).

Hey Hammer,

Since you're working hard to make the mouse wheel context sensitive, I think it would be cool if it would zoom in and out if the wheel is used while hovering over the zoom indicator in an edit. Does that make any sense at all?

In EDIUS I can use wheel to change numeric values anywhere. Also left/right scroll (I use Logitech LX7) is the same, as left/right arrow on keyboard. Just an idea...

Ok - I've added code to zoom in and out of the timeline using the mouse-wheel (if you hover over the white zoom indicator) and I've made it so that the mouse-wheel also adjusts individual effect parameters (if you hover over the slider or numeric value). Merry Christmas!

Hammerhead, thank you for listening to us and implimenting all these ideas, but please prioritize making LW stable and with more codec compatibility. LW can be used now without all the bells and whistles but can't be used at all if we can't get our footage into it in a timely manner. The user interface additions will be great once LW gets to the point of a 100% functional NLE.

more codec compatibility.


We can understand the sentiment, but the reality is that although does take development time to support multiple codecs, their inclusion in the free version is largely dictated by licensing factors rather than technical ones - and as you can see from the Features tab on lightworksbeta.com, the paid-for version of Lightworks does support more codecs.

Rest assured, though, that we are working on ways to diversify the range of codecs we can support in the free version, and there will be an announcement on this early in January
