How to Automatically Create TikTok Videos

To auto-generate TikTok videos, you'll need a video automation API together with a dynamic data source. This source can be anything from a simple spreadsheet, a no-code platform such as Zapier, API integration, or text-generation AI such as ChatGPT. Here's a brief overview of how this works.

Start with a TikTok video template

Whichever approach you take, you'll need a video template first. A template is the appearance of your video, and contains placeholder elements, such as captions, images, and video footage, which should be different with each TikTok video. In the next step, these placeholder elements will be mapped to dynamic data.

In order to get started, there are a number of pre-made video templates available, but it is likely that you will want to create your own video designs. This can be done using the video editor. This online tool allows you to completely edit and customize a TikTok video to your requirements.
