Using AI to compose a video script
Watch the walkthrough below to see the script composer in action:
Importing a blog post or news article
To turn your blog post, article, or other text into a video, first select your template and format and then choose the Transform your text into video option.
Copy a link to the post you want to use and paste it into the URL bar, then click Import. Your article will appear in the space below after just a few moments. From there you can edit the text, reorder the structure, or delete sections that you don’t need in your video.
The Import function can pull content from public websites like blogs and news articles, but it can't gain access to private pages like social media sites or password protected blogs, word processing applications like Google Docs or Microsoft Word, or cloud storage services like OneDrive, Google Drive, or DropBox.
Using text without a link
Don’t have a public link to import? You can copy and paste the actual text you'd like to use right into the space below the URL bar! Once it’s there, the same rules apply: you can edit the text to make sure it’s perfect before letting the AI summarize it.
To summarize, or not to summarize? (that is the question)
Once we have ahold of your text content, there are 2 options to transform it into a video. You can Continue with AI to summarize the content, or Skip and use all sentences if you don't want to use a summary:
✨ Continue with AI
If you Continue with AI, you’ll see our script composer! This is the ✨AI magic✨ part.
The main part of your screen will show you the script our AI has composed from your source text. At the top you'll see an estimate for how long the video will be, and along the side is where you can start tinkering! The first script you see will match the tone of your content, but you can adjust the tone, length, and focus of it using the prompts. Along the side, near the bottom, you'll also see a few script spin-offs: these are script options that have a different focus than the original content! You can select one of these options to get a fresh take on your text.
To edit the title of your video or put in prompts for the AI, click on Edit video title and content instructions. You'll see a modal that lets you give the AI instructions about where to focus the script, and you can edit the title of the video from here as well.
Underneath that are 2 drop-down menus that control the duration and tone of the video! Click on the top one to select the approximate length of your video, and the one below lets you pick a tone or mood for the AI to emulate in the script.
Click on Compose Script to watch your altered script be written right in front of you! You can adjust these parameters as many times as you need to in order to make sure the script is perfect.
Once you're happy with your script, just click ✨ Convert to video! The AI will create scenes for each section of the script by selecting designs and relevant videos and images from the stock media library.
Skip and use all sentences
Choosing to skip and use all sentences means that the AI won’t summarize your text at all. Instead, we’ll create a scene for every sentence up to a maximum of 40 scenes. Clicking on this option will take you directly into the creator, and scenes will begin appearing immediately.
Where does my text go?
The content from your original source will appear in the Source tab along the bottom left of the video creator. The text can’t be edited in this tab, but you can add new scenes using the text or reference it while you’re editing your video:
