Lightworks 2022 is announced as the Lightworks for all content creators, the biggest release ever of the classic NLE, with new editing tools and features. In case you missed it, check the new version!
With the first official introduction last November, Lightworks 2022 is now available in three flavors: Free, Creator and Pro. The pandemic and the end of the year may have contributed for many of those wanting to check the software not doing so, but you still have time. Packed with new features, the Lightworks 2022 reflects the drastic changes we’ve seen in content production in recent years and months.
As the internet has developed and pro-grade technology is accessible to a wider audience, the amount of content creators has skyrocketed and also diversified. Where once before you needed an expensive camera to make content, now everyone can create amazing video with just their smartphones. Since content is no longer in the hands of large media companies, Lightworks has made its editing software accessible to everyone. This new launch, says LWKS, offers three different plans to fit different needs for different content creators. Let’s see what the new release has to offer.
Introduced as the company’s biggest release ever, Lightworks 2022 comes with new editing tools and features that offer options for every type of content creator. It’s time to bring your video to life, and it does not matter where you start, the NLE offers Hollywood strength video editing for everyone, according to LWKS.
For over a decade, Lightworks offered a free plan to get aspiring editors started and a Pro version for more skilled video pros. After 14-months of working closely with users, we have come up with a fantastic new set of features, powerful functionalities and integrations than ever before. Lightworks 2022 offers editing solutions to every content creator out there, from beginners to professionals or social media experts, to marketers, who all have the same purpose – creating engaging content.
