Luma Fusion for Lightroom users. A beginner guide tutorials for photographers.

I have just made a short course on how to use Luma Fusion for Lightroom users. I know there’s a lot of photographer out there that have lots photos that they want to share with the world.

One of the best way is through videos. I know photographers are not very skills at video editing, and I have that in mind when I created the short course on YouTube free of charge.

Usually an editor will try to show you how to do video editing from their point of view. Put up your hand if you have seen those videos. Is not really clear is it? This is a video for photographers out there that want to make a video using Luma Fusion.

There’s something magical about how we can interact with our footage and/or our photos that makes Luma Fusion such joy to work with. I have been using Adobe Premiere Pro, Da Vinci Resolve, Windows Movie Maker, Photoshop and now Luma Fusion. And guess what, I like Luma Fusion the most for video editing.

Typical Timeline of a video edit.

Some video editing softwares are so basics, some are so complicated that is beyond a novice to intermediary users and I’ve found Luma Fusion to have the right balance for me.

So basically with this course I start in Lightroom first.Then I moved the audiences to Luma Fusion, where they will be overwhelmed of what they have to learnt.

But I’ve been there myself, so I’ve made the tutorials so perfectly to the point for a beginner to learn that they might actually learn something and enjoy Luma Fusion and video editing. I have pressed the right buttons for any beginners video editors out there. That is my hope anyway when I made the video.

I can still remember the first time that I took a course on Adobe Premiere Pro. Man I just want to learn how to edit a short video not how to make a feature length movie out of video editing. I’m guess that I have the best bang for the buck right?

Usually needs two screens.

The video production of the course took me an hour or so, I edited the videos down to make a video tutorial took me three hours to edit. There’s a few missing tools in Luma Fusion like automatic video and audio linking. But with more advanced editing skills you can make it work.

It is great value compared to other video software out there. Sure Divinci Resolve is free but you paid for it in hardware upgraded. And graphics cards these days are expensive.

Hopefully my video find the right audiences for it and find someone like me 10 years ago in their visual stimulation journey. And my skills and experiences can pass on. Check it out below and there is a chapter in the video just skip to the part you need help the most.
