Showcased at IBC 2018, in Amsterdam, the new LumaFusion with Storyblocks integration is finally available, offering editors direct access to a custom Storyblocks media library.
The team behind LumaFusion showed the new version of the app, version 1.7, during IBC 2018, in Amsterdam, but now the video editor for iOS is available for users to download. One of the key elements of the new version is the integration with Storyblocks, which is optional but may well interest content creators. As Luma Touch points out, “as a result of this integration, LumaFusion editors now have direct access to a custom Storyblocks media library filled with hundreds-of-thousands of studio-quality, royalty-free creative assets, including 4K and HD video clips, backgrounds, music, loops and sound effects.”
There are additional benefits of the new Storyblocks integration, and they include:
- Curated tags, sorting, special filters, and search make it easy to quickly find the perfect clip for your project;
- Filter by model-release, property-release and editorial content to make clips that can be used in any production;
- Dozens of clips in each category are included free, and the entire library can be browsed and previewed;
- Low-cost subscription for access to the entire library (subscription can be cancelled at any time).
Storyblocks for LumaFusion is available at an annual subscription rate of $69.99 or at a monthly rate of $9.99 USD. This subscription provides access to custom content through LumaFusion and is not connected with other Storyblocks subscriptions. Customers can still import media downloaded from the main Storyblocks site to LumaFusion.
Partnering with Storyblocks is the most recent manifestation of Luma Touch’s vision of bringing a sophisticated, quality and professional caliber content creation experience to mobile filmmaking. The industry-popular iOS editing app LumaFusion is produced by the original creators of the award-winning Pinnacle Studio App, video effects and editing industry veterans that set a goal with LumaFusion: to create the most powerful tool ever for mobile video editing.
