What's new in Lightworks 14.5.0.0 (109545)

October 18th, 2018
  • New & updated features in 14.5:
  • Added support of variable frame rate files (.mov .mp4, .m4v):
  • A major new feature enabling content from non traditional broadcast cameras to be edited with Lightworks 14.5. No need to transcode these files prior to importing in to Lightworks, simply drag your files directly into your project, start work straight away.
  • [Variable frame rate support]
  • Added new GPU precision options:
  • Added 16 bit replacing 10 bit
  • Added 16 bit Floating point
  • Added 32 bit Floating point (Windows only)
  • Added Histogram Graph to the Video Tools panel:
  • Stay in one application longer by utilizing the true colour correction by checking your colour details against the new histogram graph.
  • Added export option to Reaper (Lightworks Pro only):
  • REAPER is a complete digital audio production application for computers, offering a full multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing solution for live recording and broadcast applications. Send your compositions directly for audio fine tuning.
  • Added support for handling .MOD and .TOD files:
  • Lightworks offers unrivalled choice. Native format support and integration with JVC Everio video cameras recording formats via .TOD file extension. Native integration with JVC, Panasonic, and Canon camera which support the .MOD file extension.
  • Added ability to adjust RED R3D RAW metadata parameters (.rmd)
  • Added individual clip R3D decode settings panel next to the Metadata panel in Log view:
  • Added project wide R3D Decode settings to the Video tab of the project card
  • Added support for media structures:

  • Added support for Fusion 9 on Mac:
  • Native integration with Blackmagic’s leading compositing software for round tripping with the VFX package on the Mac platform.
  • Added support for decode/encode of Cineform codecs:
  • Now that the incredible Cineform codec is available as Open Source we have added decode and encode functionality into Lightworks. Transcode, render or generate Cineform proxies for smooth and efficient editing within 14.5. Even export to Cineform from within Lightworks Pro!
  • Added Voice Over and Mackie MIDI support for Linux users:
  • New in 14.5 is the ability to record direct to your sequence timeline with the voice over tool and ability to mix audio levels with the Mackie MIDI device. Choosing Lightworks as your editing application on any platform just got even easier. Great for those who want to add a narrative to their timeline.
  • Added ability to acknowledge project wide LUT setting on export:
  • Add a project wide LUT to all your media and have that LUT applied into your exported file.
  • Added ability to set a Ranged Cue Marker (Start and End point):
  • Previously users of Lightworks have only been able to mark an individual frame, with Lightworks 14.5 you can mark an entire range! Once the clip has had the markers added right click the clip to generate a sequence of just those marked sections.
