Why are we discussing AI-powered video-making tools today?
Well, Oberlo reports there are 97.8% of digital video views from 18 to 24 years old in the US. Moreover, the overall demand for video is growing. As such, 91% of respondents answered they wanted to see more video content from brands.
We’ve already shared what videos you can create to promote and sell your products or services. But what about the ways of their production?
Video marketing is not the easiest thing to do. Yet, the demand for this content type is undoubtful. Gladly, modern technologies like AI can ease the process for you.
We’ve gathered and tested five awesome AI-based video editing and creation tools that will help your company stand out.
1. HeyGen & HeyGen Labs
Okay, that will be two in one because these guys have come up with one big stunning product and a great head-turning tool. So, let’s get everything sorted out.
Now, you don’t have to pay thousands of dollars for video production. It can be a $24 or $72 monthly subscription only. Sounds awesome, isn’t it?
But what will you actually get?
HeyGen spoils you with 100+ AI avatars of different sexes, ages, and ethnicities. These “talking heads” can reproduce 300+ voices across 40+ languages.
Accordingly, you can pick any avatar that matches your company’s energy and let them narrate your story. Nowadays, “talking heads” are used in videos for various purposes - often for education, presentation, introduction videos, etc.
Getting started is easy. You can sign up using your email address or Google or Facebook account. Then, you can pick the available avatar in a fitting scenery.
After, move on to editing the video. You can paste your text, and the chosen avatar will narrate it. You can also select the voice (male/female) as well as accent (British/US/Canadian/Australian/Indian/South African).
This way, you can make a short introduction to your company, present a new product, or do any action you need. Are you looking for some fun? You can use pictures to vocalize any script! This way, Mona Liza can tell users about, e.g., the brand new ice cream taste you have.
And while you think that can be the strongest HeyGen feature you can use, we reply that there’s more. Recently, the company introduced HeyGen Labs. And this tool changes the game.
Its main goal is translation. You can upload any video that is over 30 seconds and translate it into 13 available languages.
HeyGen Labs will translate the text using your voice and intonation and make a correct articulation.
This way, if you want to scale your company and enter new markets - this tool is for you. It will definitely save you lots of money. At the same time, you will be able to reach a wider audience in its native language.
The main product and the Labs have a free trial, so you can test it out and decide if it’s a fit for you.
Here comes the next AI-powered tool. What are its main features?
As the name suggests, it takes caption-making to a whole new level. But we’d like to talk about another significant feature first.
We can imagine that video recording and participating in them can be challenging. Especially if you are not an actor or someone who feels comfortable in front of a camera. Add the necessity to learn a text, and it all can turn out as a pain in the neck.
But people demand video content from you.
Captions offer a thrilling feature. Its AI Eye Contact tool will ensure you always look into the camera. Even if you actually don’t.
That allows you to read the script without worrying that you need to learn something by heart. You can feel more comfortable and forget about the stress of forgetting something.
The editing process is easy. You upload the video, apply the AI Eye Contact function to it, and download the updated video.
Another helpful feature to try is AI captions. Why captions are vital?
Verizon conducted research and found out that 80% of users are more likely to watch an entire video if it has captions.
That’s why if you want to grow your engagement and conversion rates, you must include captions in your videos. And Captions helps you do this seamlessly.
The whole process stays very easy. You need to upload your video, choose from the 28 available languages, and press the “Add Captions” button.
You can customize the text with 100+ available styles. What’s awesome is that you can edit your captions (in case AI didn’t get something right or you made a mistake while talking and want to fix it in your text).
Thanks to this app, the words will pop on the screen as you narrate the text.
So, by taking quick and non-complicated actions, you can palpably improve your videos. Not only will you feel more confident making video content for your blog or company, but also provide your audience with a better experience.
There’s a free three-day trial where you can try the main features out and decide if you need a paid subscription.
But what if you need something different? You can unleash your creativity with AI video tools like Runway.
Well, what does it do?
Runway uses AI and machine learning to turn users’ video prompts into videos.

It’s better to be very precise with your prompts to get what you want.
