Lightworks from Editshare By David Hague Over the last few years, we have been literally bombarded with video editing packages (NLEs) from all sides.

Among all of these, a program that has somewhat been bypassed is Lightworks - now up to version 14 and in its 25th year! ...Read More »

Vegas Movie Studio Platinum By David Hague The familiar light grey facade of the Vegas family has been changed to a black motif in Vegas Movie Studio Platinum (and I suspect this will flow through to Vegas Pro as well. All the kids are doing it!) that is not unattractive. In fact, the whole interface has been made over and somehow looks cleaner and more businesslike.

In the past if someone suggested you could get probably 85% of the power of Premiere and After Effects together in a package that sells for under a hundred bucks, you'd think they were barking mad and aiming to be the Pres of the USA perhaps! ...Read More »
