Beginner's guide to mastering AI video creation with Whatmore Studio

Watching videos is easy. Creating videos is not, especially not excellent ones that go viral. Producing a video requires creating a script, shooting all the footage, and editing it perfectly. All this requires massive time and resources. In fact, 64% of companies cite time, and 45% cite team size as the biggest barrier to creating marketing videos. This is where AI video creation can help. Software like Whatmore Studio can help you create videos quickly and effortlessly. 

What's AI video creation?

AI video creation means creating videos with the help of artificial intelligence. This is done in two ways-

Generating AI video from scratch 

This process includes generating videos from scratch. You can do this using AI text-to-video generations. These tools generate videos based on your textual or image prompt. You simply describe what you want the video to be, like with ChatGPT, and the tool creates a video based on your input. Text-to-video generators are great for generating clips but currently lack the sophistication of traditional video production.

Editing an existing video

This means creating a new video out of pre-existing clips and footage. Marketers use this to improve the quality of an existing video by adding subtext and background music and sharpening it.

Tools like Whatmore Studio can help you create new videos from pre-existing footage with the best-trending music. Most companies are already using AI video tools to create social media and product videos to save 80% of their time and budget. 

Why is AI video creation great for e-commerce brands?

For e-commerce brands, videos are the cornerstone of your marketing strategy. Since customers can't physically try out products online like they would in a store, they rely on images and videos to understand them better. Videos are also easier to consume as compared to text. We all prefer watching a video to understand what a product looks like over reading a long article about it. This makes videos crucial for e-commerce sales. More prominent e-commerce players have internal teams and marketing agencies to help them produce high-quality video content.  But creating videos can be challenging if you're a small brand just starting out. Not only do you have to produce high-quality videos consistently, but you also have to maintain a consistent brand style and quality. Plus, the video you create for social media will have to be different from the videos on your website's product pages. 

This makes scaling video production extremely difficult for e-commerce brands. 

But not anymore.

With tools like Whatmore Studio, you can create different types of videos like collection videos, social media reels, and new product launch videos easily. Here are some benefits of using AI editing tools like Whatmore Studio.

  1. It helps you scale video marketing

With AI video creation tools, e-commerce brands can quickly produce multiple high-quality videos and scale their video marketing efforts.
