EditShare -- the company who acquired non-linear editing superapp Lightworks back in 2009 -- announced a while ago that they would be releasing Lightworks as open source software. That's pretty sweet, considering Lightworks has won both Academy and Emmy awards.

If you've been waiting patiently to get your hands on a download, your wait is almost at an end. According to a letter sent from EditShare to the crew at Openite, Lightworks Open Source will be available on November 29, 2010. Lightworks is truly professional-grade stuff, with features like real-time audio and video effects, multi-track audio and voiceover tools, support for 3D projects, native 2K resolution support, and project sharing for multiple editors. The app has handled editing duties for a laundry list of big-time productions, which you can peruse over at the official site.

Initially, Lightworks will run on Windows XP or newer (both 32 and 64-bit versions). The community hopes to have a Linux port ready to go by late 2011
