Crop videos and images

Under "Advanced" next to a scene, you will see a Crop option if the image or video selected doesn't quite fit the format you're working in. You can then choose which part of the image or video is shown in the scene, and which is cropped out.

Support for right-to-left languages

We now support languages like Hebrew, Urdu, and Arabic! Simply start a video from one of those languages, and we will adjust the Lumen5 creator experience to accommodate.

Drag media to create a scene

You can now drag media from the Story tab, Media Search, and Uploads below an existing scene to create a whole new scene. Huzzah!

No more scene limit!

Many of you told us you wanted to make videos over 40 scenes–you've been heard! This limit has been removed.

We still need a way to make sure we're not having to process super long videos, slowing things down for everyone. We looked at the data and only a fraction of one percent of videos exceeded 5 minutes long, so we have set the time limit there.

If it does affect you, we're very sorry! Lumen5 is built to be the best tool for creating videos for social media, where short videos outperform long ones handily. So if your videos are running long, look at how you can put your editing hat on to create compelling story that people will watch beginning to end!

Updated Text Animations

We've updated the humble bar, box and none text types to look more modern and visually interesting. Stay tuned for all new additional text styles coming soon.

Duplicate Videos Being Rendered

You can now duplicate videos while they are being rendered. Why is this important? Well now if you want to make another version of your video (say a vertical video) you don't have to wait for it to finish rendering before you can make a copy. 🎉

Line breaks are now supported!

One of our most requested features of all time is finally here! 🙌🏻

Using the enter key will create a new line on the current scene. To create a sub-scene, hold down command (Mac) or control (PC) and hit enter. Or click the + button below an existing scene and click New Sub Scene.

Remove Editorial Media From Search

Great news! You can now exclude editorial media from searches in the main library as well as the Getty library.

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!

Turn off image animations

You can now disable image animations entirely! Choose Advanced > Animation > None. Screen Shot 2018-12-24 at 11.52.13 AM.png
