Introducing Lumen5 + 5!




We’re introducing Lumen5 + 5! 🎉

An opportunity for users to make up to 10 minute long videos in Lumen5.

Giving users more flexibility by removing boundaries when creating thumb-stopping videos.

What you need to know?

Not much changes for in terms of additional steps.

Go forth and create long-form videos like how-to videos, webinar recaps, or interviews!

Icons - the ICONIC way to explain concepts!




Showcase your brand and business in an iconic way with icons. 🤩

Got an abstract idea and no stock footage to support it?

Icons to the rescue!

Scroll through the extensive library to find the icons that show exactly what you’re trying to say.

It’s as simple as dragging and dropping an icon onto a scene!

Here’s a gif to show you how it works:


Say ‘Hey’ to your viewers in 5 new languages

New languages for Automatic Captions are LIVE in Lumen5!

Localize any of your videos in:

  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • French
  • Italian
  • German

Make saying 'Hey' more relatable than ever! Now you can say 'Bonjour!', 'Hola!', 'Ciao!', 'Olá!', or 'Hallo!'

Get Organized with Bulk Actions

It's time to get some spring cleaning done… or as we like to call it, organizing your Lumen5 workspace.

We know you've been putting it off for a while 😉 But don't worry, Bulk Actions is here to save the day!

Select one video and you activate "bulk action mode" - the power to:

  • move multiple videos to different workspaces or projects
  • make copies of multiple videos
  • delete a bunch of videos (just make sure you delete the right ones)

Here’s a gif to show you how it works: ​

Deselecting all the videos will exit them from “bulk action mode”.

The More Color the Better, right?

Want to change the color of ONE word or phrase? Now you can! Introducing additional color controls for text and accents.

Play around with the colors on highlight underlines and bars and additional accents to give your scene a little pop (of color that is). 😉


Skip To The Beat Of Your Fave Tracks

You can now choose a start time for music tracks to start off on the right foot (or beat 😉).

Whether it's cutting out boring intros or delayed start times to get right to the good stuff on any track they like (yes, that even includes your own uploads). 🎶

Experiment with Automatic Captions in Your Videos!

Easily upload clips with a speaker OR take existing videos and Lumen5 will add captions in seconds.

Want to spice it up? Add in a quote scene design or lower thirds to introduce your speaker.

To get started, create a new scene and choose one of the Automatic Caption designs. Then all you need to do is drag clips or swap designs to make sure your speaker shines like the star they are.

Adjust the Volume on Scenes to Set the Mood

Have a person speaking in a scene? Fear not, you can now adjust background music and the video clip audio so the message doesn’t get lost in all the noise (aka the background music 🎶).

To do this, click on "More Options" next to a scene, drag the background music or video clip audio to the correct levels and you're all done! 🎙

Cropping in Lumen5 Just Got Better!

You can now zoom into images and videos when you crop them. Make the image or video front and center to focus on what’s important.

To do this, click on "More Options" next to a scene, click over to "Crop" and then zoom away! 🏎
