Hi

I work in an educational institution and I want to have my students use Lightworks free version.

We can't afford 20 licences for Pro (even with the 50% discount) - can the free version be used on 20 PCs?

Thanks

let's say every student has an account, yes - > that's lwks free
you'll miss the pro features for work groups as project sharing, working on the same project etc.

Alan, you should be able to do that. I will deviate slightly from what lghtwrks said, where each student will need their own account. That's quite true if they are using their own computers. It probably would be better to say that each computer must have its own account though.

What might be preferable in your case would be to have one or two PCs with EDU licences in the pool. Then when a student finishes a project they can archive it and move to the fully licensed rig and export their project from there. That will remove the export limitations of the free version.

But as lghtwrks suggests, it would be a good idea to talk to sales about your needs.

Hello and welcome!

Assuming that you're asking about the Free version: Yes, with one single registration with Lightworks you can install Lightworks Free on two (or more) computers. The necessary licenses are created automatically with any installation of the software on a new machine. These licenses are independent and you can use two or more machines side by side at the same time, but not simultaneously on exactly the same project data (you have to copy projects between machines).
It's better to travel well than to arrive...
