Lightworks? Or any other good free editing software?

Anyone use or have ever used Lightworks? I don't wanna get into using cracked copies of Premier etc so thought I'd look at this, but before committing time/effort etc to it does anyone know of any other good free/open source editing software?

Steven Harris Anzelowitz

NO but I understand Davinci resolve 12 is an excellent post production tool.

Lightworks, and Hitfilm 3 Express are free (and yes there are paid pro versions for each).

@Steven, cool I'll have a read up on DaVinci Resolve. Have you used it? @Lindbergh - have you used Lightworks? It looks kinda long winded... I'll take a look at Hitfilm Express too. I used to use a cracked copy of Premier which is so user friendly but thought I'd better move on.

I am a screenwriter/Director/independent film maker in NYC. I just know of it, not about it. One year on Stage 32 next month you pick up a lot of knowledge.

I've used HF3 since I've recommended it to a number of people who are starting off. The HF site has tutorials that'll get you up and running in no time. Quite similar to other NLEs actually. Lightworks I dabbled in a few years ago, and didn't get to far since I was using PPro.

HitFilm has a 4 week VFX course that's free, and they're using Hit Film 3. Yes, FREE VFX course and free Hit Film 3 Express. Link: https://hitfilm.com/blog/futurelearn-start/

Thanks guys, some good tips... I'll be editing soon (about a month or so) so will see which one grabs me best!

Gimp is a great photoshop alternative. and its FREE

@Kirk @Whitney do you mean for editing video? That's what I'm after here... I know lightbox sounds similar to lightworks. I'll check Gimp though thanks Kirk...

Hmmm, choices, all recc's look good! Thanks everyone...
