I have a xp partition on my computer so I down loaded so I downloaded 
Lightworks beta.  The first try was 10.01 and it would not open up and 
run.  They did an update 10.01.1 so I downloaded it and it works fine.  
I looked it over a little bit and loaded one of my video files on it. I 
havent done anything more with it as I don't really want to spend a lot 
of time reading the manual right now. The program looks nice though I 
hadn't figured out how to look at the timeline.  I really like the feel 
of Cinelerra so I may never use it.  I am kind of interested in a 
program that will do a good job of auto producing as a quick trick with 
pictures and video in a movie like video.  I belong to some on line boat 
building groups and would like a quick way to produce some video to show 
to the groups only, but good enough to not embarrass me.  I thought this 
might be it, but I don't think it has that capability. I may have to buy 
a copy of Muvee maker to use in XP I have used it and the later versions 
are pretty good.
