What's new in Lightworks

Version 2020.1.1:

This latest version is purely to update the EULA within the installers (based on Lightworks now being owned by LWKS Software LTD) but does also include a couple of fixes which should help to address some issues that have arisen since May 2020.

New features:
  • Updated the EULA agreement to reflect the LWKS Software LTD ownership
  • Added ability to show the password on sign in panels within the application
Fixes:
  • Fixed YouTube uploads failing when there are non-ascii characters in the Tags section
  • Fixed failure to show a warning message when entering incorrect sign in details
  • Fixed potential crash revealing a MediaFileRepositoryPanel
  • Fixed potential crash browsing for media within ‘Local files’ (Mac)
  • Fixed potential crash handling and dump location so we get better analytics from Microsoft (Windows)

For this amount of money, I would expect to see the developer responding to questions here. It looks like it may be a viable alternative for final cut x, however how can I tell whether its worth taking the time to download and try it out when the developer does not respond to even a simple question, which they should have already discussed, like, "what is better about it than FCPX"

What is better about it than FCPX, the cross-platform capability?

Great app, use it on Windows and Linux. Mac beta seems pretty good. Some super minor interface issues, but that will clear up before final release. Really liking 12.0
