Cleaner text controls

We've cleaned up the text controls! They've been moved to the top of the scene to make it easier to adjust text sizes and change highlighted text.

Audio Normalization

We've normalized our audio library! Now your video volume, voiceovers, and background music will sound better than ever.

Projects! ๐ŸŽ‰

Projects are now live. You can create projects to organize your videos, much like folders! More about how this works here.

Better support for clips with talking and music

Music will continue to play when you add an uploaded video with sound to a scene. That way you can hear both the person or people in the clip talking and the music. We'll lower the music volume so that both can be heard clearly. This replaces the previous behavior where music would mute completely.

New Colour Palette Selector

We've made some changes to the way you can select colour palettes for your videos! Now you'll see a palette that shows all the colours side by side, so you get a better idea what your final video will look like. Business and Premium users can still change individual colours within the palette: just click in to edit.

Bitrate Increase

Weโ€™ve bumped up the bitrate of videos to help with resolution! Now your 1080p videos will look even sharper than ever.

Chrome Extension

The fastest and easiest way to turn any website or blog post into a video is using the Lumen5 Chrome extension.

With the extension you can create a video right from your browser in just one click! Click on the extension from any blog post or article and we'll take you right into the video creator.
