PBS’s POV Blog | Awaiting the Official Release of Lightworks, a $60 PC-Based Non-Linear Editor

Has Apple’s shift to Final Cut Pro X, and the dissatisfaction of a legion of editors, created a market opening for PC-based nonlinear editing systems?

PCs are demonstrably less expensive than Macs with the same computing power, and programs such as Premiere, Sony Vegas and Avid have already made their appeal to editors on a budget.

In about a week or so, on May 28, 2012, a new competitor enters the market. And at a price that’s hard to beat.

Lightworks for Windows, which will have a free version and a $60 “Pro” version, will be released to great anticipation.

A good writeup on Lightworks from PBS’s POV documentary unit.
