As promised by Editshare, Lightworks for Linux is now available for download as a public Beta test

For the first time, Lightworks for Ubuntu Linux is available for everyone to try.

Here's what Matt Sandford, Lightworks Product Manager, had to say:

Today we are releasing the first Linux Public Beta version of Lightworks, this means any user wishing to test the Linux Beta version can do so by visiting the link below, filling out the short form and agreeing to the Terms and Conditions:

www.lwks.com/betas-linux

This Beta version contains the new EditShare Licensing Service (ELS) which will allow users to sign in to the application using their Lightworks Username and Password (an internet connection MUST be present on the system) When signing in each new user will be automatically given a complimentary seven day Pro license to test the Pro version of Lightworks, this is renewable at the end of the seven days by simply signing back in to the application.

The Linux Beta does not include trial AVID DNxHD licensing due to the restrictions imposed by AVID. We will shortly be adding the option to the Lightworks Shop www.lwks.com/shop for users to purchase an AVID DNxHD license specifically for the Linux version.

There are still some limitations with the current Linux build which can be found on the Linux Beta page above.

Many thanks to all those Linux Alpha Testers that continually submitted feedback and helped get the Linux version to Beta stage.

The complimentary Linux activations will not appear on your Community page under Activations.
