edit always being saved twice (and notifying the shared project twice for every modification * Lightworks no longer crashes when you import MXF files that are of a length the application does not expect. * D3D surface caching is now deselected by default. * Apple H264 is now described correctly. * If your AAF import fails, you now see a more helpful error message. * When you import, more types of transcode options are now available. * Uninitialized data might have interfered with importing. This has been fixed. * Transcoding on import now works when the input image has an Apple codec identifier (fourcc) and appears to have a different compression format but is the same as one of the Windows formats. * A bad memory leak that occurred when you changed projects has been fixed. * Lightworks no longer crashes when you try to play audio when the audio is missing, for example, when material is offline. * Memory usage is now reduced during surface pooling. * The name you type for an Assistant Application is no longer ignored. * When you delete an Assistant Application, associated effect templates are now also deleted. * Irrelevant effects options are no longer available. * If a memory allocation fails, cached images and logs are now automatically freed, and then the application tries again. * You can now move on-viewer effects controls (for example, DVE position) with either mouse button. * You can now adjust numeric effects parameters with the mouse wheel. * You can now adjust Timeline zoom with the mouse wheel when you position it over the white length-indicator strip. * You can now create effect templates from .FX files (for example, HLSL pixel shader files) on the fly. * You can now have more than 10,000 events in an edit track. * Handling is improved for After-Effects plug-ins that use custom parameter types (for example, Red Giant ‘Looks’). * Lightworks no longer crashes when you preview After-Effects plug-ins. * Lightworks no longer crashes when you display the BITC Overlay dialog box while letterboxing is enabled. * You can now successfully import audio-only MXF files. * You can now successfully import Aaton 23.98 WAV files. * QuickTime export formats are now restricted (to avoid problems with using the QuickTime SDK for simultaneous decompression and recompression). * Unjoined cuts are now rejoined after an undo or redo. You can unjoin them again by clicking the Unjoin button. * Empty shots or edits no longer display the Material Offline message. * The application might have crashed when you unarchived the same archive more than once without having closed the bin from the first import. This has been fixed. * When you import, an image sequence is now automatically detected only if you select the first image from the file browser. * Image sequences without zero-padded numerics (for example, file1.jpg, file2.jpg as opposed to file0001.jp, file0002.jpg, and so on) are now imported successfully. * You can now drag and drop tiles onto the Generate Film Lists tool. * When you use Avid key assignments, pressing the J or L key repeatedly now increases play speed up to 4x. * EDL imports that generate warnings now continue to import successfully. * You can now specify on which drives you want your Material/Sound folders created. * Lightworks no longer crashes when you try to import an EDL without having exported one first. * After you double-click bin items, the correct number of track buttons now display on the source viewer. * Lightworks might have crashed when it tried to display tool tips over non-opaque windows that did not have explicit alpha channels.
