Greetings, my forward-thinking friends! Jason Sirotin here, ready to take you on a delightful journey through the marvelous world of AI tools for video production. Buckle up and prepare to bid adieu to the dinosaur era, as we explore the mind-boggling advancements that are revolutionizing our industry. But first, let’s address the naysayers – those clinging to the past, afraid of embracing progress.
The Dinosaur Dilemma: Are You an Antiquated Filmmaker?
Picture this: a world where filmmakers refuse to adapt, resisting the rise of AI tools for video creation and animation. They roam the land, insisting on laborious manual processes, as if stuck in a time warp. But fear not, my friends! We are the innovative pioneers, leaving these antiquated souls in our digital dust.
A user of Runway ML, an AI-powered tool for video editing and VFX, shared their experience stating: “Runway ML is the best video editor for quick and dirty AI VFX. It has an interesting suite of AI tools that can be used in the cloud or locally, including object detection, pose estimation, style transfer, and more. I’ve used it to create some interesting VFX without needing to spend hours fine-tuning the original video in real-time”
Another professional used Pictory, an AI-based platform that specializes in repurposing video across platforms, with great success. They said, “I’ve been using Pictory for a few months and it’s become an essential part of my toolkit. It’s super easy to use and does an amazing job of turning long videos into short and engaging clips for LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook”
As an avatar-focused AI video editor, Synthesia stands out by generating content—from subjects, to backgrounds, to voices—with the help of AI. You can start with an AI avatar and the scene they’ll appear in, then pair the avatar with a script and a voice you’ve selected. Synthesia offers voices in 120 languages and accents, which aids in localization. These AI avatar videos can help scale video production and personalization
This web-based video editor offers a suite of AI-powered tools designed to streamline the editing process. Its flagship AI feature, Smart Cut, removes awkward silence in dialogue, white noise, silences between dialogue, and even background noises without removing the speaker’s voice. Kapwing also offers auto-generated subtitles, video trimming and resizing, text-to-speech edits, video blur, and more. In addition, it has generative AI tools powered by OpenAI that can help you draft a video script or create a whole video in just a few clicks.
Powered by Adobe Sensei, this desktop-based video editor uses AI and machine learning-based tools to help produce more consistent and polished-looking videos. The main AI features include instant color matching, automatic scene edits, automatic reframing of focal points, and content-aware fill to remove objects from videos. Adobe has plans to build more generative AI tools into Premiere Pro in the future.
This tool combines a responsive HTML5 video player with backend hosting for video files and an AI-powered search that can automatically identify and tag objects, text, sounds, and more. Producers can use the search to quickly jump to key moments rather than sifting through hours of footage. The AI-based tagging allows users to immediately start searching their videos to find scenes, sounds, and even people based on a simple search.
Built around its transcription feature, Descript allows users to edit audio and video files by editing the text in the transcript, which is then reflected in the audio/video. It also offers AI-based tools including voice cloning, background noise removal, and green screen effects, along with basic video hosting and screen recording capabilities. Collaboration tools within Descript resemble working in a document, with comments and threads being housed inside of the video transcript.
AI-Driven Video Innovations: A Glimpse into the Future
As we look ahead, we imagine a future where AI tools transform video production. These technologies will predict video trends, decipher audience preferences, and craft personalized narratives. AI will analyze vast data to uncover insights into audience behavior and engagement, enabling content that deeply resonates with viewers. Moreover, AI will create dynamic narratives that adapt to each viewer’s preferences, emotions, and interactions, introducing a new era of personalized storytelling.
We stand on the brink of an era where algorithms, acting as high-tech crystal balls, will predict viewer desires before they even come to conscious thought. This advanced scrutiny of data will turn prediction from speculation into a precise science. As we move towards this future, the boundary between technology and creativity fades, birthing a landscape where human innovation and artificial intelligence converge harmoniously. This isn’t just the future of video production; it’s the future of personalized entertainment, marketing, and storytelling.
