Both platforms are easy to use and beginner-friendly. We couldn´t notice lags or significant delays when creating and rendering videos.

Voiceovers: A standard feature on InVideo but a beta feature on Lumen5.

Music: Both platforms feature many free tracks, but InVideo supports more file types.

Mobile apps: If you need editing on the go, only InVideo offers this feature.
