The headline new addition to LumaFusion v3.1 is the Scopes feature. This feature gives you histograms, waveforms and vectorscopes — tools essential for color grading — in real time. The scopes are also present in customizable panels. This means you can see the results of your settings changes immediately and animate them while seeing results during video playback. In addition, all of the scopes work for both high dynamic range (HDR) and standard dynamic range (SDR) color spaces.

Multiple LUTs and effects

Another new feature in LumaFusion v3.1 is the ability to add multiple LUTs and effects to any clip simultaneously. LumaTouch says this streamlines and accelerates the workflow for creators while giving them creative freedom to quickly add a signature look to their content. You can even combine in-camera LUTs and multiple instances of any effect to your footage for highly stylized, professional-looking sequences.

Other new features

The LumaFusion v3.1 update includes several other new features and workflow enhancements designed to make the storytelling process even more fluid for you. You can now reorder audio effects for complete control over audio adjustments. In addition, the automatic project backup management now stores current backups, plus one per day for the last 30 days and one per month for prior months. This should ensure you never lose important edits. There is also a new Import and Restore feature in the Project Manager, which makes it easy to find and restore automatic project backups.

Workflow improvements

The LumaFusion 3.1 update introduces some improvements to the workflow, including:

  • Dropbox now shows both personal and team folders for accounts that have Team Spaces
