I really love Lightworks. I compared it with other editors, but nothing comes close to the focus and lightness.
Alvin Generoso Motilla
video editing software
"I have an almost evangelical enthusiasm for Lightworks. I’ve edited with all the other systems, so I can say - from experience - that Lightworks is a far superior editing tool."
"I have tried the obvious alternatives to Lightworks and know all the disadvantages. I wouldn’t be interested in working on a film if they told me I couldn't edit on Lightworks."
"Lightworks has always been an editing tool that happened to be a computer, and not a computer that’s an editor. You never have to worry about tech getting in the way of the creative."
