I think Wax 2.0 will not work anymore with lightworks. Of the free programs I recommend studying Blender 3D in conjunction with lightworks. Wax is dead and is no longer updated And here is Blender 3D is developing well. I also plan to start learning Blender 3D Here are just little free time.

There is another new open source node-based compositor called Synapse which is interesting. There is a Windows installer as well as a version for Linux.

Synapse isn't that new. There doesn't appear to have been any work done on it since early 2011.

@jwrl. As tin2tin pointed out in this post, "it seems that the coder of Synapse is actively working on something which might be libs for Synapse".

I'm not sure, if this question belongs here. Well, I'll ask anyway. Blender is a much to powerful program, for what I wanted to do: simple rolling titles. So does anyone have further suggestions regarding that task?

It should also be noted that WAX as a plugin is broken and probably won't return to Lightworks. It was a good workaround at the time but I think its time may have passed.

I find it odd others are not getting wax to work in 11.0.3, because I've been using it with out any issues. I just tried it on a system running Windows XP (32bit) and I used it last week on a friends system running Vista (64 bit). I did notice that the plug-ins tab wasn't there at first, but I just reinstalled the wax plug-in, and it reappeared, and worked fine.

I'm also able to use WAX on XP 32bit in the 11.0.3 release and all the subsequent beta releases.

The problem is most likely some new permissions snafu introduced in Windows 7. Has anyone tried installing Lightworks in the Administrator account so permissions and UAC would never be a problem? If I was going to have a dedicated editing workstation running a small number of media related apps and nothing else (i.e. no web surfing, downloading, etc.), this might be the way to go.

Okay, I forgot about that post. So something changed in Lightworks with the Premiere plugin system when used on a Windows 7 or later OS.
