Understanding AI-generated videos
First, let’s define AI-generated videos and how they differ from traditional videos.
Essentially, AI-generated videos are created using algorithms that analyze various data inputs such as text, images, and audio to produce a video output.
Unlike traditional videos that require extensive human input, AI-generated videos are quicker and more cost-effective to produce. They also have the ability to create a consistent brand experience with customizable templates.
Steps to make videos using AI
- Identify the type of video you want to create.
A clear understanding of the video you want to make will guide your choices in the following steps ( Explainer video, product demo, tutorial, etc.)
- Choose an AI video generator tool.
There are numerous AI video creation tools available in the market, including Synesthesia, Lumen5, Vidyard, among others. Do your research and select a device that best aligns with your needs and budget.
- Gather necessary resources.
Depending on the video type you want to create, gather text, images, audio, and any other necessary resources.

Once you have your resources, feed them into your chosen AI tool. Most tools will first make you choose a video template, so it is not entirely random.
- Preview and edit the video.
Preview your video to make sure it looks and sounds the way you want it to. Edit the video as needed to refine the final product.
