Lightworks is a video editing solution that has established a reputation in cinema history, as it is the preferred video editor in the creation of some of the finest films in Hollywood such as Pulp Fiction, Hugo, LA Confdential, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Equipped with amazing features and robust tools, Lightworks can also be used for making videos for social media, YouTube, Vimeo, and 4K film projects. With Lightworks, users will be able to easily edit clips or shots by applying the drag and drop techniques provided by the software. In addition, it lets them enhance the images in videos using color grading and blending. To create smooth transitions between clips, Lightworks allows users to perform key-framing as they add effects to videos. The video editor also works with Blackmagic Fusion, a post-production image compositing software used for creating visual effects for movies, commercials, and TV shows. Through the aid of plug-ins, users can take advantage of the filters, transitions, graffiti, and graphics from Boris, a visual effects software and vector-based titling solution. Editing clips and footages in Lightworks is done by using its drag and drop techniques. Lightworks’ user interface is comprised of panels: bins, edit viewer, and timeline. Lightworks lets users drag and drop a clip or shot from the bin to the edit viewer panel. This particular drag and drop technique is used so they can perform some actions such as selecting the segment of the clip. The video editing software also has a systematic way of applying effects to video clips which is referred to as video routing. Video routing in Lightworks uses a node-based system for organizing video clips and effects. This system is needed for videos that have multiple tracks and effects. Exporting videos to YouTube is made easy using Lightworks’ right-click menu.
