LumaFusion, a popular video editing app for iPhones, iPads and Macs, is now widely available on Android and ChromeOS devices after an early beta in November last year. Similar to other renowned video editors such as Final Cut Pro for macOS and Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve for iPad, LumaFusion offers powerful editing features such as green screen and chroma key VFX effects, a magnetic timeline, color correction tools and more for Chromebooks and Android tablets and phones .
The app has already proved a hit with filmmakers and content creators on Apple hardware, winning the App Store Award for iPad App of the Year in 2021. The developer LumaTouch also claims that LumaFusion has been downloaded 1.1 million times since its launch in 2016 and has completed more than 68 million project exports.
It’s not just ported to Android either, with LumaTouch noting that it’s assembled a team of “experienced Android developers” to recreate this new version of LumaFusion specifically for the platform. It also optimized the software to take advantage of the unique capabilities of Chromebooks and Android phones and tablets.
Chromebooks aren’t exactly known for their creative capabilities, so the options for professional video editing tools before this release were pretty limited. As schools prefer Chromebooks for their affordability, LumaFusion can now provide students with better access to learn video editing techniques.
LumaFusion for Android is now available for download at the Google Play Store for $30 – the same price as its Apple counterpart, and up from the original $19.99 price in beta. Those who have already purchased the cheaper beta version will not have to pay an additional fee to access the full LumaFusion release.
