4 Steps to Create Automated Videos with AI

Table of Contents

In the ever-changing landscape of video creation, the realm of AI has experienced remarkable growth, bringing forth a new era characterized by enhanced creativity and productivity. With remarkable advancements in AI technology, a wide range of tools and resources have emerged, transforming the way videos are crafted. 

Whether you’re a content creator, marketer, or an avid enthusiast eager to delve into the realm of AI-driven video creation, this comprehensive guide will provide you with a detailed, step-by-step walkthrough on harnessing the power of Hour One’s state-of-the-art technology for making AI videos that are highly captivating.

What are the benefits of AI for Video Creation?

Because manual video creation processes can be very labor intensive, AI is taking hold as an effective and affordable solution for producing video content.

Traditional video production has a lot of moving parts. You need to create scripts and storyboards, hire performers and crew, rent or buy cameras and other expensive equipment, and shoot your raw footage. Then you have to add music, graphics, and effects and edit your video into a final cut. AI video generators can handle every element of this process independently.

Like any generative AI tool, all an AI video generator needs is a prompt: a block of text that tells it what the video is supposed to be about and what important points it needs to cover. Tools like ChatGPT can assist with this crucial step by creating detailed scripts that provide a complete structure for the AI video generator to follow.

Once the AI video generator has a text prompt, it can create all of the footage and even add lifelike virtual presenters to deliver lines and narration with a relatable human touch. AI video generators can be configured to follow preset templates and include transitions, visual effects, infographics, music, and every other element that goes into a professional video production.

Here’s where AI video can be of great value to you:


By using an AI video generator, almost all your video creation needs exist on the one platform. You will no longer need to create scripts and storyboards, hire performers and crew, rent or buy expensive equipment, shoot your raw footage, or pay someone to edit your video. AI video generators can handle every element of this process independently, allowing you to save your budget for other purposes.

Less time-consuming

In just a few minutes, you can produce hours of video content at the press of a button, saving you time on script writing, location scouting, hours of filming, and the most time-consuming of all – editing. You can even effortlessly customize your videos or translate them into different languages as needed.

More engaging

According to various studies, video is a powerful tool for engaging your audience and boosting your business’s awareness. By using lifeline virtual presenters or different visual effects to deliver your message, you are giving your video a relatable human touch that will capture your customer’s attention and keep them engaged. When using your company’s logo or incorporating your brand identity, you are enhancing your content’s consistency and making your video more memorable.
