Hi I read in the FAQ that once the Linux version was released the sourcecode would also be published.

Is it available somewhere?

The source code for Lightworks isn't currently available, any decisions on this are up to Editshare.

Lightworks is freemium software.

OK I've browsed some older threads and I think it's becoming clear to me that they've changed their minds and don't intend to open source it. The linux client has been out for three years or so at this point which was their original internal deadline.

It seems like it would be more honest for them to just say so, rather than maintaining this fiction that it might one day happen.

Even maintaining fictions may have benefits for a while. I don't know which in this specific case, but the Linux community seems to be quite happy with the software as it is, especially because there's a free version.


My 2 cents.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

It may or may not happen, perhaps it may have proven more complex than initially thought, but it's a decision that's up to Editshare. Currently Lightworks seems to be meeting a need.

Since nothing more can be added, that hasn't been said in the other threads, I'm locking this thread.
