Lightworks Re-Opens Its Linux Alpha For Testing
Phoronix: Lightworks Re-Opens Its Linux Alpha For Testing
Lightworks, the professional non-linear video editing software that has been talked about for years as coming to Linux, is re-opening its Linux Alpha program to solicit additional testing...
They promised an Open Source version, then lies.
Now they want to sell the propietary version on Linux, but nobody cares about it.
Obviously they are desesperate to attract market, but they are failing.
There will be source code. I looks like it will be more open core though.

THEY FUCKING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW???????????

I GOT INNNNNNNNNN
suck it bitches
now to edit my gay prons
It's open for the next 100 minutes.
So in order to actually edit any real video formats, you have to buy a license that expires after a year, so they hold your past creations hostage with their annual license fee?
That's why there's no source code -- they know someone would bolt on FFMPEG and skip the license altogether.
Well, it's nice to see them expanding the program.
There were some good fixups in the initial alpha-testing (although, the holidays were obviously pretty quite), so it's nice to see things progressing.
I haven't gotten an email about a new release yet, so i assume they are opening the program to others on the current build that i have installed.
