The Only Narrative-Based Timeline Built By Editors

We like to shout about our timeline. It looks uncomplicated – and it is. But it’s the most powerful  timeline out there.

With the most comprehensive drag and drop support, and all the standard insert, replace and fit-to-fill edit commands, a Lightworks timeline gives you the most advanced features available.

Any Video File, any Format:
We Support Them All

Lightworks has the widest support available for media file formats currently available in a professional NLE.

MXF, Quicktime and AVI containers, with every professional format you can think of: Check the tech specs for a full list.

If You're Editing Something Big, Sharing Is Caring

Share media, bins and edits in realtime with full permissions control over which user has which access. 

Easy to configure, easy to maintain and it works on any network storage across all major operating systems (I'm looking at you, Linux!)

Essential effects to enhance & correct your footage

Effects are much more than lasers and lightsabres! Lightworks Pro offers over 300 essential effects to enahnce, stabalise and correct your footage to help bring your video to life.

Boost colours, remove image noise and camera flash, fix distortion, fine-tune luminance  and more. With our comprehensive collection of essential effects, you'll  find what you need for your video.

Advanced titles to take your video to epic new levels

Titles and text are some of the most well used but under appreciated effects in the history of editing. Bring your video to life with our massive range of over 800 new and advanced title effects.

Lightworks Pro plays nicely with all your favourite VFX & audio plugins

You can easily use all of your favourite video and audio plugins built on OFX, VST3, AU or LADSPA architecture including NewBlue, BorisFX, Maxon, Waves, Sonnox, Accusonus and more. Give your edits some TLC (Truly Limitless Creativity!) and bring your videos to life.
