Lightworks Open Source moves into beta

The groundbreaking Lightworks Open Source project has celebrated its phase one roll out with the release of the free Lightworks 2010 Public Beta.

"Since our initial announcement at this year’s NAB Show, we’ve had over 25,000 editors and 1700 developers sign up to become a part of the Lightworks Open Source community. The unified support and constructive feedback has driven the initiative and helped bring our developers one step closer to finalizing the most creative editor on the market," said James Richings, managing director of EditShare EMEA. "We look forward to the phase two release of Lightworks Open Source in the new year."

"Lightworks has been a far superior editing tool since its inception, and I am very happy to see EditShare’s aggressive development of the new Open Source platform. I look forward to Lightworks’ continued growth and seeing it take centre stage in the post production community," said Tariq Anwar, Editor, The King’s Speech.
