Three videos you can make today using the Create API

The Create API is a game-changer for video creation at scale. It lets you add text-to-speech or text-to-avatar to your videos, giving you new ways to connect with your audience and save time and money.

But how can you use the Create API to make your videos more compelling? Here are three ideas to inspire you. And if you need some help getting started, book a call and we’ll chat about your use case.

Speak in over 30 languages

Do you have a video that you want to reach a global audience? Now you can easily add voiceovers in different languages. All you need is Shotstack.

Just write your script, choose your language and voice, and let the Create API do the magic. It will create your audio file, which you can then use in your video creation at scale, either with the Edit API or with Shotstack’s no-code integrations with Make or Zapier.

This is huge. It means you can take one video and turn it into dozens of versions in over 30 languages in minutes.

Make your walkthroughs pop

Add some personality and flair to your product or service walkthroughs. Whether you’re in real estate, automotive, or any other industry that uses walkthroughs or walkarounds, you can make them more engaging by adding voiceovers or avatars that highlight the key features and benefits.

Take your first party data, turn it into a script and then use the Create API to turn it into a voiceover or an avatar that matches your brand and tone. Then use them as a source file when creating your videos at scale with the Edit API or in a no-code environment.

This will make your walkthroughs more informative and persuasive, and help you stand out from the crowd.

Turn long-form articles into videos

This is perfect for publishers, media owners, educators, and anyone else who produces long-form text articles and wants to create a summary video for their users, customers, or students.

You can easily turn your articles into videos with the Create API. Just use GPT4 to summarise your articles into key points, turn those key points into a script, and then use the Create API to turn the script into a voiceover or an avatar in your chosen language.

Then use the Edit API or a no-code environment to create your videos with the audio files and any images or footage you have. This will help you create captivating videos that capture the essence of your articles and attract more viewers.

These are just three examples of what you can build with help from the Create API. Make sure to sign up for your Shotstack account today.
