Getting started with creating short videos can be a daunting task. Thankfully there are helpful, and free programs out there, that can get you started on your journey. Lumen 5 is one of them.

While Lumen 5 only creates short videos - these still have their uses. Here are some examples of what you can use short Lumen 5 videos for

  1. Introduction videos to your youtube channel

  2. Complimentary videos for your blog posts, that you can insert into your posts

  3. Quotes and affirmation videos (as you see in the training video above)

  4. Quick social media videos for your Facebook page

  5. Short video for your Fiverr listings.

In order to create a Lumen 5 video you will need to prep a script first. This can be either pulled from a blog post - which Lumen 5 will do for you, all you have to do is copy the link of the post of yours, that you want to create a video from, or by writing your own script.

In this example, I used an old blog post, that I have chosen to rework, and rewrite, and a Lumen 5 video will make a great addition to that post.

If you have any questions about how to use Lumen 5, leave a comment in the comment section below, and I will get back to you as soon as possible

Blessings

Thanks so much for this and in particular the introduction to lumen 5.
I have tried flixpress and biteable in the past also which at not bad.
Can you download the videos in the free a/c? (With biteable, you need to be premium paying member to dowload)

Thanks again for the introduction to this programme!

I personally do not like Biteable because of the corner label, and because of the restriction on download. There is no download restriction with Lumen 5. I always download it directly on my computer, and then upload it from there to Youtube. Lumen 5 only has the little logo at the end - meaning one slide mentions that you made it via Lumen, with is fine with me.
You also have the option to upload it directly to Facebook, which is pretty cool, as well. Hope that answered your question, Paul. Blessings!

Yes, many thanks and blessings to you also.
I will be finishing up with biteable and changing to lumen 5.

Thanks again for the introduction to this programme and I wish you every success with your own online activities. ..

Funny you should say that Claudia. When I came back for a closer look the video counter reset to zero from 9 minutes and I had trouble playing it

ClaudiaHB Premium
strange, let me see what is going on here
Reply
ClaudiaHB Premium
weird, it is playing fine for me. I did have problems uploading it today, took the longest time to get there. Do you mind trying again, and let me know if that works?
Reply
MKearns Premium
It switched through successfully and played fine this time Claudia!
