Mainly to keep order in the project content.

Here is an official tutorial of an older Lightworks version, whose layout is similar to today's flexible one:

Software: Lightworks 2020.1; || Windows 10, 64 Bit
Hardware: Intel i5-4440 (3,1 GHz); || shared RAM: 8 GB; || Intel HD Graphics 4600 (can use max. 2 GB of shared RAM)

Bins are the system that you organise your various clips, sub clips and other media for your project.

The user guide says this:

Bins are used to organize and display your clips and sequences. You can move and copy clips to
other bins, and change the way bins display clips.
It is possible for a clip to be in more than one bin at the same time. You can use this feature to help
organize your material more flexibly. However, seeing a clip in more than one place on the screen
does not mean there is more than one copy of the clip on the hard disk.


This video tutorial explains more, ignore the layout, the content manager is basically the same in both Lightworks layouts. Although, the Flexible layout has an additional feature.



Needless to say that the bins allow you do a lot of work before you even get to the stage of placing clips into the timeline. This includes storyboard editing.

I'm moving this thread out of bugs into editing.
