Lightworks Video Editor Goes Open Source
The Lightworks video nonlinear editing program will be released as Lightworks Open Source in the fall of 2010.
Lightworks is targeted primarily at professional video editors, thus isn't well known publicly. The nonlinear editing solution (NLE) was acquired August of last year by the EditShare company, whose core products are multimedia storage and backup solutions. Releasing Lightworks under a free license would thus help EditShare in finding a community willing to further develop and add extensions to the product.
According to EditShare's press release, a free download of Lightworks should be available in the third quarter of 2010. The software would then be accessible to developers to build add-ons and plugins. An online marketplace will also provide commercial opportunities. When Lightworks is to go completely under a free license, and which license, is still to be decided.

Please remember as well that the process of going Open Source is not something that happens overnight. Before passing Lightworks code over to Open Source developers, there's the massive task of preparing the software, legally and technically.
Wrong, i can happen overnight. Legally what? Is this project open source or not?!? Technically you have a bunch of programmer working on this software to clean it up etc... but the open source community can work for you. I don't get it. You are using FFMPEG, QT, all this would be a piece of cake to port to linux...
They say that near middle of 2011 they will release the code... let's see and wait.
