Lightworks 2010 opensource disponible

Le premier logiciel de montage que j'avais pu tester chez France Televisions il y a maintenant 11 ans est disponible désormais gratuitement en opensource. Voici les specs actuelles, en anglais :

Academy® and Emmy® award-winning Lightworks was introduced in 1989 as the first and most advanced non-linear editing system on the market. Used by editors such as Chris Gill and multi Oscar-winning Thelma Schoonmaker, Lightworks offers intuitive controls, advanced real time effects, 2K native support with DPX or RED, and multi-camera editing features that remain unmatched. With wide support for codecs, including EditShare’s Universal Media Files, Lightworks achieves a level of unsurpassed interoperability by offering seamless media sharing with Avid and Final Cut Pro. This new workflow enables Lightworks artists to collaboratively edit projects with a much wider group of editors.
Feature Highlights:


AVI, QuickTime, MXF, DPX and RED R3D, DV, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, P2, AVC Intra, DNxHD, ProRes. Real-time up and down-scaling, from SD to 2K.

Advanced multi-cam editing with unlimited sources and dual-SDI outputs, so you can simultaneously view your source angles in sync with your edit.

Support for Adobe After Effects, Boris, Combustion, Sapphire and many more.

Real time video and audio effects, including primary and selective colour correction, are all guaranteed in resolutions up to 2K, thanks to Lightworks powerful GPU based effects engine.

Sub-frame audio editing, direct-to-timeline voice over tool, Mackie protocol support, real time playback of mixed sample and bit rates, and guaranteed real time multi-track audio.

The most advanced Project Sharing capabilities available, allowing editors to access each others’ work with the click of a button. Instant Save technology ensures you’ll never lose your work again.

Full-screen video output through a DVI-attached LCD display, with support up to 2K Full Frame, offering an inexpensive monitoring option, with no need for SDI hardware.

Lightworks is the only NLE available to offer multi-channel ingest, with support for synchronised capture, making it ideal for advanced 3D Stereoscopic projects.

Défragmenter un seul fichier ou un seul répertoire

Pour éviter des catastrophes lors d'accès fréquent via votre logiciel de montage ou de compositing à des séquences d'images ou à des vidéos HD qui nécessitent beaucoup de ressources pour les afficher impeccablement, Microsoft propose via Sysinternals un logiciel appelé Contig, qui s'execute sur Windows via la fenêtre DOS Command (CMD), et qui vous permet de défragmenter les fichiers de votre projet, sans défragmenter tout votre disque. Pour télécharger Contig :

Je vous conseille de placer l'executable Contig.exe dans votre répertoire Windows/system32 pour que vous puissiez y accèder de n'importe ou, sans avoir à la placer systématiquement dans votre répertoire dans lequel se trouvent vos fichiers à défragmenter.

Les commandes sont entre autres :

analyser un fichier et connaitre sa fragmentation : contig.exe -a "votre_fichier"
défragmenter un fichier en affichant les étapes de traitement : contig.exe -v "votre_fichier"
défragementer un répertoire complet en affichant les étapes : contig.exe -v -s "votre_répertoire"
