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.


Add a bit of fun and personality to your videos with GIFs! You can now search for GIFs under the media tab.


Text bar color

Customize the text bar color or opacity to give your videos a new feel! This option can be found under the Style tab when you choose bar for text background.


Customize video pacing

You can now customize your video's pacing! Simply choose from Slow, Normal, or Fast in the Video Pacing dropdown!


Outro scene added as a slide

Outro settings were previously under the Style tab. This has been moved to the bottom of your slides and you can now type directly into the text box.


Language-based scene timing

Length of each scene is determined by the amount of text on a slide based on average reading speed. Previously this was calculated using English reading speed, but now Lumen5 will detect the language and automatically use the average reading speed for any language!

Improved support widget

On the bottom right corner, you'll find our new and improved support widget!


New text animation

This new text animation replaces our previous text animations. This is our first step to creating more variations later on.
