How to make AI Generated video with Animaker: Quick and Easy Guide!
In this rapidly evolving landscape of technology, there is no doubt that AI(Artificial Intelligence) has emerged as a powerful tool, reshaping the way we create and consume content. From revolutionizing healthcare with improved diagnosis to self-driving cars to more immersive virtual reality experiences, AI has been gaining popularity worldwide, enriching people’s lives.
One remarkable facet of AI’s potential is its ability to generate videos. This has opened up a world of possibilities for filmmakers, content creators, and businesses.
This entire AI video creation topic can sound scary or complex to beginners, but I can assure you that this is not the case.
The fact that you have clicked on this article already shows your curiosity about AI video creation and how to make one! So let’s not waste any time and learn how to make AI generated video.
Note: If you are someone who prefers videos to blogs, don’t worry, we've got you covered. I have included a video tutorial on how to make AI generated videos. So, check it out!
Or, if you prefer an in-depth textual guide, then go ahead and read this article. Here, we will go step by step into creating AI generated videos using Animaker.
With just these three steps, we will have an AI generated video ready. This is going to be a fun ride, so let’s begin.
Step 1: Generating AI Animated Video
To get started, visit Animaker AI and click on the button displayed.
Log in if you already have an account, or sign up if you’re new.
You will be redirected to the dashboard. Here, under the Create Project section, you will see the Animaker AI Beta version. Click Request an Invite to receive access.
Note: Currently, Animaker AI is available only for premium users but will be available for all users soon.
Once you receive the invite to your mail, click on Create.
This will open the Animaker AI window.
In general, video-generating tools require a script to generate a video. However, with Animaker AI, there is no such requirement!
Let me explain.
With Animaker AI, you only need to enter a prompt describing your idea and then select the tone and video duration. The AI then generates a script AND a video all at once.
Now, that’s a huge timesaver!
So, let’s now see how to make AI generated video with Animaker.
Here, I am going to generate an explainer video about Artificial Intelligence. So, after typing in the topic of the video, choose the tone and the desired duration.
Once that is done, click Next.
Here, from multiple style options available, choose one for your video.
After choosing a style, it is time to select the AI voiceover for your video. From choosing gender and language to selecting voice, there are multiple options available.
Click on Preview to listen to the AI voice, and click Done to proceed to the next step. If you want the generated video without any AI voiceover, click Skip and proceed without voice.
Whether you choose to have the AI voiceover or not, the next thing the AI does is generate a video along with the script.
Let’s take a sneak peek at the AI generated video.
The generated script is accurate, and the explainer video looks great, but I want to make a few adjustments to the video.
So, let’s see how to make advanced edits to this generated video.
Step 2: Make advanced edits
To make edits to the generated video, click on the Advanced edit option in the preview window.
The generated video will open in a new project window where you have so many editing options.
Let me give you a quick tour of the interface so that you can edit with ease.
At the center is the workspace, where the video you edit appears. On the left is the library with so many editing options, and on the right is the scenes section. Below the workspace lies the timeline, where you can adjust the timing to precision.
Now that you have a better understanding of the interface, there are a couple of adjustments that I want to make in this video:
- Replace a character
- Add text and icons
- Add a voiceover
So, let’s see how to make these edits.
1. Replace a character
To replace a character, click on the character and then click Replace.
This will open the Character library on the left with a variety of characters from kids to plus-sized characters.
Click on a character and hit Apply.
The character is now replaced.
Speaking of characters, did you know that you can create your own animated character with Animaker?
It's true! If you’re curious to learn about how to create animated characters, check out the link provided.
Moving on, let’s see how to add text to a scene.
2. Add text and icons
Apart from the text present in the generated video, you can add extra text while making Advanced Edits.
To add text, click on the Text option in the library.
This will open a panel with two types of text - Plain and Pre-builds.
Pre-built text boxes come with design, font, and animation effects, while plain text boxes require designing from scratch.
Choose a text box and place it where you want in the scene. I’m choosing a plain text box.
Type in your text, and you will notice that a side panel opens. This is the Edit Text panel. Here, you can change the font, adjust the size, add effects, etc.
You can change the font color by clicking on the Change Color button above the workspace.
Notice a new orange section in the scene timeline? This section shows the duration of the newly added text in the scene. To adjust the duration, you can hold one of the ends of the section and slide over to a specific time.
You can even add animation effects to the text! To do that, select a text box in the scene and click on Animation. This will open 35+ animation effects for your text.
Choose an entry and exit animation, and you will see a highlighted part added to the orange section. This indicates the animation effect duration. Adjust the duration, if needed, by dragging the inner corners of the highlighted end across the orange section.
Next, let’s add some relevant icons to the scene.
To add icons and properties, click the Property option in the library.
This opens a huge collection of 100M+ properties and icons for you to add to your video. Scroll through the collection or find one immediately by searching for it in the search bar.
When you click on an icon, it gets added to the scene. Position it where you want the icon to be.
When an icon is added, a blue section appears in the timeline. This indicates, you guessed it, the duration of the icon appearing in the scene.
To adjust the duration, hold and slide one end of the blue section over to a specific time.
Just like how we added animation effects to the text before, you can add animation effects to the icon as well.
So, following the same steps by clicking on the Animation option above the workspace and choosing an enter and exit animation effect, two highlighted sections appear in the blue section.
The duration of these animation effects can be adjusted by sliding the inner corners of the highlighted sections.
This is how you add text and icons to a scene.
There is one more edit left to do - Voiceover. You might ask why since the AI already generated a video with the voiceover.
But what about the text that we added in this section? There is no voiceover for that text. So, let’s see how to add a voiceover for that text.
3. Add a Voiceover
While the voiceover for the entire video is narration, how about we make the character in the scene talk and lip sync to the voiceover that we add now?
Is that even possible? Of course it is!
So, before adding a voiceover, it is necessary to delete the existing voiceover for the scene to avoid audio overlap.
To do that, click on the overall timeline, and you will see the voiceover for each scene. Right-click on the relevant voiceover that we are going to replace and select the Delete option.
That’s all! Let’s see how to add a voiceover to a character now!
All you need to do is click on a character and select the Lip-sync option.
This will open the Lip-sync panel with three options - Record voice, Text to Speech, and Upload.
- Choose the Record Voice option if you want to record your voice and add it as a voiceover directly.
- Choose the Upload option if you have an audio file that can be added as a voiceover.
- Choose the Text to Speech option if you want to convert text into audio and add it as a voiceover.
Here, I’m going to use the Text to Speech option. Let me show you how to use this option. Upon clicking this option, a pop-up window opens.
Once you type in the text, select the gender of the voice. Then, select the language from over 170+ options available. Next, select the voice of the voiceover you want to add.
If you want a preview of the voice, click Play. If you want the voice to sound as natural as possible, then check the Auto Enhance box.
Note: The Auto Enhance feature is available only for Premium users. However, free plan users can manually enhance the voiceover. To know how, watch this video:
Once you are satisfied with the AI voice, then click on Add to Timeline to add it to the scene.
The character will now lip-sync to the voiceover! It is as simple as that!
So far, we have replaced a character, added text and icons, and added a voiceover to the generated video.
To see how the video looks after the edits, click on the Preview button to play the video.
When you’re satisfied with the video, there is one last step left to do.
Step 3: Download the video
The last step is to download the video. So, click on Download > Download Video option.
Then click on Download.
The video will be ready for download in a few minutes on the exports page.
In just 3 steps, we saw how to create a fun AI generated video using ChatGPT and Animaker.
