Text Sizing

We've changed the way you size your text! Choose from tiny, small, medium, large, and huge to create compelling scenes for your videos. Bonus: no more wondering if the text size slider bar is in the exact same place for each scene- just select the same size!

Auto Resize

Now you can resize your video right from the Share page! Transform your videos into a different format with just a few clicks, making it even easier to download and share your videos in the right size.

8 New Themes!

We've released 8 new themes, to give you more fresh and exciting styling options, as well as some improvements on the classics. You can read more about the thought behind our themes on the Lumen5 Blog.

Editable Story Tab

We've released an update to the story tab to allow you to edit! Shorten sentences, delete blocks of text you don't need, or write new sentences for your script.

You can then easily turn any block of text into a new scene by clicking or dragging it to the storyboard.

Faster Rendering

We've made some changes to our rendering to get you your finished videos even faster! Most videos now render in 1 - 2 minutes, compared to about 5 minutes only a couple of months ago.

Download from your Dashboard

You can now download your videos directly from your dashboard! In the video menu, you'll see the download option, or "Prepare Download" if your video hasn't yet been published.
