Article Media Suggested

When our AI creates a storyboard for you, we will now choose media from your article alongside our own media recommendations. As always, you can drag and drop in new media from our media library or your own uploads. Happy Lumeneering!

Facebook Upload & Video Fixes

We've fixed two pesky bugs that you may have encountered. Folks who after connecting Lumen5 to Facebook for the first time changed their Facebook password were unable to post to Facebook. This has been resolved, we'll now ask you to reauthenticate.

Second, you should no longer encounter issues uploading supported video formats. Errors for "This video format is not supported" when the video format is in fact supported and "Video must be more than 360px tall" when the video is bigger than 360px should be resolved!

Advanced video trimming

You can now trim video clips to exactly the part you want from within your workspace. Even ones from our media library! Hover over a scene with a video click, then choose Advanced → Timing → Trim.

More audio!

We've added 30,000 more audio tracks, up from just shy of 1000! Who needs Spotify when you can just preview Lumen5 audio tracks all day?!

Adjust photo animations

You can now adjust the direction of the movement (Ken Burns Effect) on photo slides. To the right of the slide click Advanced > Animation.


Speed improvements

🏎We've sped up Lumen5 by converting all preview videos to 480P, reducing load time and resource demand on your web browser while you're editing your video. Don't worry, if you export to 720P or 1080P we'll still use the best video quality available available!

Facebook sharing update

We've fixed the issue plaguing Facebook uploads for some folks, hurrah! 🎉 To do this we had to update to a newer version of Facebook's API, which unfortunately means you can only share to Facebook Business Pages from Lumen5. To share to your own personal profile, download the video and share from Facebook directly.

Vertical video

The highly requested vertical video aspect ratio (9:16) is now here! Create attention grabbing videos and share your story on platforms like IGTV and Snapchat.
