How to Add an AI Voice Over to a Video using an API?

This API example shows how to add an AI voice-over to a video using a single HTTP request. It uses Creatomate along with ElevenLabs' text-to-speech API. You only need to specify a template and the voiceover text:

API Request
curl -s -X POST \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data-binary @- << EOF
  "template_id": "58c1163e-f250-49df-b98d-e8c4aad01a2d",
