I think they offer a watermarked trial that could be used to check. I've seen posts that say Cineform Neo works properly but I haven't tried it.

well, to be on the ground: cineform itself cost as much as fcpx (that is if i act if the additional "ducks" aren't necessary), so that would be a horrible decision imho.

i think you can easily import h.264 (i have canon 7d) files and force transcoding to some sort of matrox codec right now, what i'am missing here thought is a simple offline/online approach, examples:

a. h.264 source, edit in transcoded matrox something, export from original h.264 files
b. png.mov source (that is uncompressed), edit in dvc50, export directly from png.mov
c. ect

find and fill will not work for me, but to be honest i did not dig really deep.

Prores is another unsupported codec that is not part of the standard Quicktime install. They say all of this is coming and that there may be an announcement very soon about an updated roadmap, I get the feeling that things are moving a little quicker than the old roadmap indicated so we'll see what happens.

Also I think Cineform codecs would be a better choice than ProRes, but we sure aren't going to get Cineform for free.


ProRes would still be useful for those external disk recorders that use it as a format... Atomos Ninja, AJA Ki Pro etc. ALthough I suspect it's quite likely that those recorders may soon switch to another codec given the number of cutters fleeing to other systems.

Hi @matze_13

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your enthusiasm for the OS X version of Lightworks!

We are going to release the full (non-Beta) Windows soon, and then we can put more resources into the Linux and Mac versions. So they're still some way off, but are definitely coming, and as soon as we have a better idea of when, we'll let you know.

We know there are tens of thousands who want to see Lightworks on the Mac, so that's why we're developing the Mac version. It's not ready yet but much of the work that went into the new Windows version (soon to be released) has helped the Mac and Linux versions as well. As soon as the Windows version is released, we'll put more people onto the Linux and Mac versions - and we're taking on new developers all the time.

We genuinely think that Lightworks is the fastest editor, and when we have the Windows, Linux and Mac versions, everybody will be able to switch!

I am a film / video editor based in Santiago de Chile, and there are several friends and colleagues waiting to put their hands on a mac version of lightworks.
