    oh ati hardware under linux is better ignored.


    This is really cool as I'm still using FC6 on os x.... too bad for h264 encoding not being free, but you guys gotta eat.

    are the sandy bridge/ivy bridge integrated graphics usable or do you recommend that nvidia fx8 thing?

    also, would someone used to final cut be able to easily make the switch? I've been hearing people tend to migrate to adobe premiere after final cut

      Well, I hope to see this mistake corrected. Otherwise, when someone points out that the information is wrong or lacks a source, the mistake actually becomes a lie.

        I haven't done any testing with Intel Graphics chipsets yet, so I'm afraid I can't say.

        We have lots of users who've done exactly that. Lightworks may look different to other editing systems, but once you understand the basics, editing is simple. There are video tutorials available to help new users get started.

            what's the perfomance hit under linux compared to windows? 10%

            would be cool if the guy from this site could benchmark that

              Heh. The shark is a nice touch

              Does it just close windows on the screen, or is it more useful?

                She also provides speech-bubble hints from time to time

                  Lightworks is actually the only piece of software coming to linux that I'm excited about.

                  I request the guy running this site to post more news and benchmarks etc etc..

                  The strenght of final cut is not so much the program per se, but the fact that you can go on google and search for whatever you are trying to do and you will see 1921212 editor's posts explaining a simple manner to do it.

                  Same can be said about the availability of 391023 free tutorials online.

                  But I never liked it much, the program itself suffers from applesitis, sometimes the outcome is not what you would expect because the program decided to fuck up.

                  but still my question remains, since I'm OS agnostic and don't mind running windows in offline computers, is there a perfomance hit from lightworks windows to lightworks linux?

                    Did you contact the upstream driver developers about that? Either they can fix it in the drivers, or they might know how to make it fast.

                      No - that's certainly something that we can explore as soon as we have a build that they can try.
