Thank you for downloading Lightworks

Your download will begin in a moment. If it doesn't click here

IMPORTANT:

  1. In order to start Lightworks you must install and run the 'RPM Fusion' repositories, which can be found at: rpmfusion.org/Configuration. You will need both the Free and NonFree versions.
    Detailed instructions can be found in the "Installation and Activation Guide" on the Downloads page under Documentation.

  2. Linux distributions have OpenSource graphics card drivers installed by default. This means Lightworks will not run correctly (images of the incorrect size during playback and possible performance problems).
    It is strongly recommended for users to install the proprietary graphics card drivers before installing Lightworks.
