We have been spending hours creating our videos from scratch for the past few years now. And that’s when I accidentally came across this tool. Today I am going to show you how to turn text into video using Pictory, an AI-powered tool.
Now you can create professional-looking stunning videos using an article, script, or your blog URL, in a matter of minutes using Pictory. With Pictory, you don’t need any previous video-making experience or technical knowledge.
Now let me show you how it works.
But before we dive into the details of how Pictory works, let’s take a moment to understand what it is.
What Is Pictory AI and How Does It Work?
Pictory is an AI-powered video creation tool that makes the process of creating high-quality videos a breeze. This is the perfect video tool for people who want to create stunning visual content without spending hours on manual editing or needing technical know-how.
Other than being an AI-powered tool Pictory also has a vast stock media library, access to thousands of music files, and a user-friendly interface.
Here are some of the things we can do with Pictory AI.
- Create videos from text, which includes script, blog posts, articles, etc.
- Create videos from URLs.
- Automatically transcribe our videos
- Edit videos using transcribed text
- Create videos from scratch using our media files
Now there are a lot of things you can do with Pictory AI. However today we will only conventrate on how Pictory’s powerful text to video generation feature works.
Because you know, this is where the magic really happens.
So let’s jump right in and see how it all works!
How to Create Videos from Text with Pictory AI
Let me log into my account first.
Once you’re logged in, this is what you see.
As you can see, there are 4 options. Script to video, article to video, editing videos using text, and visuals to video.
We will select the first option.
On the next page, we need to paste our readymade script. If you don’t have a script ready, you can write it inside the editor.
From the settings section, we can choose to use the ‘auto visuals’ feature which will automatically select visuals from the media library based on our script.
Once you are done with the script, click on ‘proceed’.
On the next page, we need to choose a template for our video. At present, there are more than 40 video templates to choose from. Each with different style of text animations and color themes.
We also need to choose the size or the aspect ratio for our video, here.
Now, Pictory AI will get into action and start creating the storyboard for the script. This is great because you get to see the preview of the storyboard before finalizing the video.
Once the storyboard is ready you can have a look at the chosen visuals, generated captions, and music.
Pictory automatically chooses media based on your text input, which is great, because you don’t have to spend hours searching for the perfect visuals.
There is a chance that some of the visuals chosen automatically by Pictoy may not be coherent with the script or message of your video. In such cases, there is an option to replace the media.
Luckily, Pictory has a huge media library with over 3 million video clips and images from Story Blocks. So, you can instantly search and replace any visual that you don’t like.
We can also upload our own media files, both video and images, for a creative touch.
To replace the media, choose the slide where you want to replace the media, then click on the media you want to use. That’s it. It is that easy.
By the way, we can also change the font, style, and color of the auto-captions generated by Pictory. We can also choose to show or hide the text on the slide.
There is also an option to add different elements such as GIFs, stickers and emojis to your video.
Now, let’s move on to the fun part, which is adding audio and voice over to our video. We get access to thousands of royalty-free music tracks from Melodie which we can use in our videos. But that’s not the fun bit.
The fun, the real magic of Pictory lies in its ability to auto synchronize our voice-over with the video slides.
I mean, imagine not having to worry about manually aligning each and every slide to match the voiceover. Pictory takes care of that for you!
All we need to do is upload our voice-over, the one we created based on the script we uploaded earlier, and apply the voice-over to the entire video. Pictory immediately starts auto-syncing, so you don’t have to worry about doing it manually.
It’s like having your own personal video editor who does all the hard work for you. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and let Pictory work its magic.
And if you’re not a fan of your own voice, don’t worry. Pictory has got you covered with its AI voices. You can choose from a variety of voices to give your video that professional touch.
Another cool feature of Pictory is the ability to add your own logo to the video. This is perfect for branding purposes, and it’s super easy to do.
You can also choose the video resolution and aspect ratio depending on your project.
Once your video is all set and ready to go, you can just preview it to make sure it looks exactly how you want it. And if you’re happy with the result, simply go ahead and download it.
Pictory’s unique ReelFast technology enables lightning-fast video generation, so you won’t have to wait for hours to see your video come to life.
