"Something went wrong" with my video renderingIf you see the "something went wrong" message, it means that your video has unfortunately encountered an error during the rendering process and has been dropped from the queue.

What file type/format will my video download in?Lumen5 videos are downloaded in MP4 format. The only exception is videos created in the Story format. These videos will be downloaded as a .zip file, with each scene rendered in an individual MP4 file. This is so that you can upload each scene to your story separately for viewers to tap through.
The bitrate for published videos depends on the resolution that the video is published in.

Rendering your videoWhen you're creating a video in Lumen5, it remains as a video draft until you click the Publish button. Video rendering is the process where we turn your project into an actual video file for you to download and share. Rendering your video also removes the watermarks that may be present on the media in our media library.
Once you're done working on your video, you can click on the Publish button in the top-right corner, and the system will begin producing your video!

Resizing your videoAuto-resize allows you to easily transform your video into a different size or aspect ratio to post on social media. If your video is in landscape format (16:9), you can change it to square (1:1) or vertical format (9:16), and vice versa. Just click on Auto resize from the video's share page, then select the size you’d like. We’ll create a copy of your video in that size, and start rendering it right away. To view or download the new format, just go to your dashboard!

Stories are short videos or images that are only shared for 24 hours before being deleted (unless you save them to your profile).
How does my audience interact with Stories?

Watermarks don't work well with Stories, so they are disabled by default. We don't recommend that you enable watermarks when you create Stories. Here's why.
