LWKS has announced that Lightworks, the original video editing software platform, has amplified and enhanced its pro editing features.

This new release ensures Lightworks is the optimum tool for importing, editing, finishing, and delivering perfect projects every time.

With version 2022.2, Lightworks maintains its position as a competitive force in the world of film, TV, and professional video editing by radically improving its end-to-end pro user experience.

Enhancements include official Apple ProRes certification, quick conversion import LUTs, new and improved scope functionality, redesigned 10-bit editing from import to export, and in another world-first, automated quality control functionality built directly into a timeline. These tools cover the entire pro editing experience from first import to final delivery and allow production professionals to natively create high-quality content regardless of their OS, saving time during the creative storytelling process.

Peter Lambert, LWKS CEO, commented: “This new release is a step forward for Lightworks and helps to democratise the content creation workflow by removing the barriers to a truly professional editing workflow experience. This expanded toolset is yet another way Lightworks deals with advancements in technology so editors can stay focused on editing and creative storytelling.”

The new Apple ProRes integration will work across all major operating systems and allow content creators and post-production professionals to natively create high-quality ProRes content regardless of their OS and save time during the creative storytelling process.

The new integration with Lightworks sister software, QScan, is a world-first'‘in-edit video QC' workflow. Running QScan inside your timeline allows video professionals to automatically detect issues such as video levels, missing audio, photosensitive epilepsy triggers, loudness levels, digital dropouts, and more directly from the editing timeline. Unique to Lightworks, this built-in QC functionality ensures all media projects will be finished perfectly to specifications every time.
