    The new owners have released their first new version of Lightworks - Version 2021.1

    Lightworks say:
    "This latest version is probably the biggest release in the last ten years! Changing some of the fundamental foundations to allow us to build a more powerful and flexible product over the coming years."

    "The overall foundations of the application have been rewritten with a faster and more flexible open architecture. This allows any media to be brought into a project and played at its natural size and frame-rate without being altered".

    New Features Include:
    Projects No Longer Have Frame Rates
    The video output format is now set per sequence
    Resolution preservation
    Added ‘Square’ and “Portrait’ Sequence Output Formats For Social Media
    Define Sequence Custom Output Aspect Ratios (Lightworks Pro Only)
    Added Asset Associations

    Whoa, I'm surprised Lightworks is still around, I thought they ceased ops years ago? They had a few die hard even high end feature editors like Thelma Schoonmaker who
    love using Lightworks but in the rank and file, I don't think I've ever met a Lightworks user. Which means they aren't real popular with the meat and potatoes crowd
    because I have met hundreds, maybe even thousands of of editors over the years interviewing for stories for various outlets. Cool they have survived, more choice in the
    market is always a healthy thing.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Resolve at $300 is slowly filling the meat and potatoes market, but Lightworks can't survive on a buy it once and get all new versions model. Even when they were owned by EditShare they couldn't survive on that. It has changed hands a lot, but it is still a very fast and very intuitive editor for anyone that is familiar with 3 point editing. Just need to get over the lingo change and some small workflow changes. Having the hardware controller makes the process much easier and better too.
