Lightworks Open Source Initiative Adds New Features, Membership Program
The editing system was used to cut movies such as "The King’s Speech" and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
The Open Source initiative surrounding the Lightworks nonlinear editing system—which was used to cut such recent films as The King's Speech, edited by Tariq Anwar; and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, edited by Jill Bilcock--has continued to progress.
Lightworks’ owner EditShare is introducing a new membership program, as well as a string of new features including 3D support.
According to EditShare, the initiative now has more than 140,000 members. "The Lightworks Open Source initiative has grown well beyond original expectations. The productive community has provided incredible feedback that has helped us expand the roadmap and understand what is important to them as editors," said James Richings, managing director, EditShare EMEA.
A full rollout of the open source code is planned for 2012.
