Lightworks 12.6 Pro exports 4K to Vimeo

A new release of Lightworks is available, extending the export options through partnering with Vimeo, along with support for Ubuntu 15.10 and Mac OS X 10.11



Since the launch of version 12.00 on Windows, Mac and Linux, the team behind Lightworks has been working to introduce powerful new features to meet future needs. There are starting to show on the 12.6 version just released.

Export to Vimeo is, probably, one of the features that most users will appreciate. This new integrated export and upload option is included in both the Free and Pro versions of Lightworks. For Lightworks Free users, the previous export limitation of 720p (max) has been removed and you can now share video online with Vimeo at resolutions up to 1080p (HD). Lightworks Pro offers Vimeo-export up to 2160p (4K UHD). An internet connection and active Vimeo account are, as expected, required in order to export and upload.


The new version has improved XML export and now supports Ubuntu 15.10 and Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), so more users can take advantage of the program.

To celebrate this new release, EditShare, the company behind the program, are giving users the chance to purchase a Year license of Lightworks Pro with a 40% discount. They also include in the package Boris FX (value of $299) absolutely free! To take advantage of this offer, simply use the voucher code LIGHTWORKS_12.6 when visiting the The Lightworks Shop. The offer is valid from 4th February 2016 until 29th February 2016.

I am a writer and photographer living on the West Coast of Portugal, a place I tend to call the Atlantic Realm. An area of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches overlooking the sea, a coastal area sitting between the Atlantic Ocean waves and hills and forests with some of the most magical palaces, castles and prehistorical sites for you to visit and photograph. Little hamlets, vast fields, inviting you to a contemplative state of mind. That’s where I live, and the landscape surely makes you what you are.
