Lightworks NLE - Free Beta Online Now

LightWorks

was one of the first NLE's on the scene, and has stood the test of time. Its not a household name in NLE's for most folks, yet its been used to cut hundreds of hollywood features including recent ones. It really got a lot of its fame from having moviola type hardware interface back in the day. Thats long gone, its evolved and grown. Its now also open source. Unlike other open source NLE's which are often bad iMovie knockoffs, this is the real deal, an NLE with 20 years of service. 

You can get the free XP 32  / Vista 32 / Win 7 32 & 64 version online with registration here.. OS X and Linux versions coming soon. Also dig that they are supporting Matrox Video I/O hardware out of the box, Decklink and DVS to follow.
