  • If your issue is not repeatable or you are unsure about how the application should be working, please first discuss the issue in the relevant category on the Lightworks Beta Forum section:

  • If your thread in the Forum concludes as an issue within the Beta version, please sumarise the thread and enter a ticket in the Redmine ticketing system:
