Lumen5: A Video Creation Platform

Lumen5_-A-Video-Creation-Platform-315You can have a wealth of well written and researched blog postings, however, getting people to stop and read them can be a challenge. Lumen5 can convert blogs and web pages into videos making them engaging and helping your work stand out. It’s almost important to consider since right now video content is performing better on social media than text and links.

What Lumen5 Does

Lumen5 converts your blog post into video frames each with a different portion of text and pictures. Images can be selected automatically by the software or edit it by hand and move around the text as needed. Lumen5 is helpful for several reasons. First, reuse existing content without starting completely over. Second, Lumen5 is easier to use than many other video editing platforms. The majority of them have a steep learning curve.
