LWKS has announced that the Lightworks video editing software platform has amplified and enhanced its pro editing features. The company says the new release ensures Lightworks is “… the optimum tool for importing, editing, finishing, and for the first time ever, quality checking and delivering perfect projects every time.”
A new behind-the-scenes integration with Lightworks sister software, QScan, gives editors a powerful, world-first ‘in-edit video QC’ workflow.
Being able to automatically QC clips on ingest and sequences on the timeline allows video professionals to automatically detect issues such as video levels, missing audio, photosensitive epilepsy triggers, loudness levels, digital dropouts and more, directly in the edit. Unique to Lightworks, this built-in QC functionality ensures all media projects will be finished perfectly to specifications every time.
Other major enhancements in Lightworks 22.2 include official Apple ProRes certification, reimagined 10-bit editing from import to export, quick conversion import LUTs and brand new scope functionality. These tools cover the entire pro editing experience from first import to final delivery and allow production professionals to natively create high-quality content across all major operating systems, saving time during the creative storytelling process.
Peter Lambert, LWKS CEO, commented: “This new release is a big step forward for Lightworks and has the potential to change the way we all edit with innovative new content creation workflows that help remove the barriers to a truly professional editing and creative storytelling experience.”
The new Apple ProRes integration will 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.
