Lightworks may be twenty years old but it's been brought bang up to date and the current release, 11.5, is the last one before it does tri-platform with the arrival of the Mac version
Editshare has come right out and said it: they're going to be showing Lightworks for OS X at NAB in April. As excitement builds around the imminent public Beta release of the Linux version, a public showing of Lightworks for the Mac platform will be a major event in the timeline of NLE history, because it will be the first time that a significant NLE has been shown to work on the three major platforms in use today
As promised by Editshare, Lightworks for Linux is now available for download as a public Beta test
