One of the booths I’m most excited about hitting at this year’s NAB show is the Editshare booth to check out their Lightworks project. Lightworks was an early non-linear editing system that Editshare purchased a couple of years ago and released as a free open-source download. They’ve got an impressive roadmap and since I don’t have a PC at my disposal I’ll have to wait until the Mac version comes along to really test it out at home but I will be checking their demo out at NAB.
There was some discussion on Twitter today about various editing controllers and this tweet led to a series of Lightworks Touch videos on YouTube. They provide a great overview of the product and their dedicated controller. I remember assisting on a Lightworks Classic system years ago and it was an interesting way to interface with the editing system. This Touch controllers looks quite cool.
