Yes. It also means (generally) the source code will be made available of others to tweak and improve upon.

Yeah, that must be why I use After Effects, and mocha, and SoundSoap, and Audacity, and...oh, wait ;-)

I just downloaded Lightworks and will probably take a look at it/mess around with it after I finish my first fanedit. Just wondering if anyone else has tried it out yet.

I just installed it. It looks really slick and easy to use. I didn't have time to play with it as I had to go to work, but I tried importing an mpeg2 and it froze, haha. Most editors don't like that, so it's probably fine. I'll play with it more tonight.

I'm going to play with it later today. I'm looking for a better NLE for Windows since Premiere is more work than it needs to be.

Agreed, and I'm getting really sick of Vegas as well.

Anybody get a chance to play with this yet? I haven't had time with this ROTJ edit going on. I'm really curious about it though.

I found a forum where a guy has made some youtube video tutorials for lightworks so I thought I'd share it.

I got a chance to look through some tutorials and read some articles and Lightworks seem really awesome. Im looking forward to playing around with it. Im even debating pushing my fanedit release back and starting from scratch and making the fanedit in Lightworks.

Quick FYI: Lightworks has a one click Auto-Sync feature, that resyncs audio after youve done any kind of cut or edit. I have no idea how it works, but sounds pretty handy and could avoid a lot of headaches.
