How to Automatically Generate AI Videos?

There are several ways to auto-generate AI videos. The easiest way is to set up a video template, and then have an AI, such as ChatGPT or Midjourney, generate the content for each video. Depending on your needs, this can be partially or fully automated. Here's a quick rundown.

Start with a video template

Templates are the design of an AI-generated video, with placeholders (like texts, images, and videos) that can be mapped through an automated workflow. You could, for example, attach the output of the AI to specific placeholders within your template. This results in unique videos generated by AI.

There are several ready-made templates available, but you'll likely want to design your own. You can do this in the online template editor, which has lots of customization options for text animations and styles.

Choose your automation method

Once your template is ready, there are three ways to automate it:

  • Using a spreadsheet. This is the easiest way to get started with AI videos. As an example, you could use ChatGPT to generate a list of productivity quotes. The AI's output can then be exported into a spreadsheet, in order for Creatomate to generate a batch of videos for each quote. This approach is ideal for creating a month's worth of social media videos in advance. You'll learn how to do this in this tutorial.
  • Through a no-code platform like Zapier. This is for when you want to fully automate the process. With Zapier supporting over 5,000 apps, like ChatGPT and Creatomate, you can build an automated workflow that meets your exact needs. You could, for example, set up a workflow that automatically posts an AI-generated video to social media, based on an event triggered by another app. This tutorial will help you.
  • Alternatively, you can integrate with Creatomate's API to build an automation workflow completely with code. This is the best choice for generating AI videos using JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, or Python for your own software projects. Here's a tutorial to walk you through the process.

Automatically generate videos using AI

Creating videos with AI is easy when you have the right tools. Whether you want to create Instagram Stories, TikTok videos, educational content, explainer videos, or any other AI-generated video, Creatomate provides you with the capability and flexibility to implement your ideas.

Above approaches work with both text-based and image-based data. For example, you could use the API to automatically pick the right photos to use in your videos. And if you want to go even further, you can use an image generation AI such as DALL-E, Craiyon, or Midjourney as well.
