From Chris Hainstock:
FREE NON-LINEAR EDITING SOFTWARE
LIGHTWORKS was a very good non-linear editing system, which at one time was much more popular than Avid, and was around way before Final Cut Pro.
It is still going strong with a core group of loyal users. Lightworks was used to edit ‘The King’s Speech’ for example, by editor Tariq Anwar.
The Lightworks Open Source Project, launched last year has now made LIGHTWORKS AVAILABLE FOR A FREE DOWNLOAD on Windows XP, VISTA and 7. Download it here:
This is not a trial – it’s the FULL SOFTWARE

The Lightworks Open Source Project:
“Back in April 2010, we announced our plans to take Lightworks open source. We always said the first step would be to make the application freely available so that a large community of users could start becoming familiar with it. We are very pleased to have reached this first milestone. Now you can freely download the most intuitive and advanced editor available. This is not a trial download. From here forward, you will always be able to download and use the latest version of Lightworks for free” © Editshare/lightworks 2011
