LumaTouch’s LumaFusion is a multi-track video editor for mobile devices used by journalists, filmmakers and professional video producers. Previously the app has only been available for Apple iOS. However, LumaTouch has announced that LumaFusion is now available in an early release beta for Android and ChromeOS.

Simple interface

LumaFusion is a powerful video editing app with features such as multiple aspect ratios and framerates, track layering, cropping, audio mixing and custom titling. You can also do multi-layer effects with keyframing. This level of video editing may seem daunting on a small smartphone or tablet screen. However, LumaFusion keeps its interface simple by hiding away features until you need them.

Editing

With LumaFusion, you can layer up to six video and six audio tracks, depending on the features of your mobile device. In addition, the magnetic timeline has features such as insert and overwrite as well as the ability to link and unlink clips. You can also display track headers for locking, hiding and muting tracks. Using the Multiselect feature, you can cut, copy and paste in your timeline and between projects.
