Script Creation Using AI
Crafting the Script
The script is the backbone of our video. We’ll be using ChatGPT, a reliable AI tool, to write a YouTube video script on easy online income. Within seconds, our script is ready!
Adding Voiceover with AI
Now that we have our script, it’s time to add a voiceover. We’ll be using Clipchamp, an underrated but free AI tool. After playing around with different voice options, we’ll select our preferred voice and save it as a clip.
Visual Enhancement with Stock Footage
To visually enhance our video, we can take advantage of countless platforms offering free stock footage. Choose a site you like, search for content related to your topic, and add videos to your timeline.
Editing Stock Footage and Voiceover
To maintain viewer attention, ensure that your stock videos change every 3-4 seconds. Match AI-narrated stock footage to the events described by the AI and fine-tune the voiceover to your preference.
Creating a Brief Video Introduction
Use Canva to create a brief video introduction. Choose a YouTube video intro template that suits your theme and customize it. You can reuse this intro for multiple videos.
Adding Captions and Audio
Add captions to your video using an auto-captions feature like Capcut. Make your video accessible by auto-generating captions and selectively removing them. To enhance your video with music, select a royalty-free piece from the YouTube library or other platforms.
Uploading Your Video and Final Touches
When uploading your video, create a catchy thumbnail and decide on a video title. You can use AI tools like Blue Willow to create a thumbnail and Canva to add text and customize it.
Remember, YouTube automation doesn’t magically do everything for you. You’ll need to put in some effort, but it can lead to significant improvements!
Voiceover Using AI and Free Tools
First, you’ll need a script for your video. Tell ChatGPT to write a script on your chosen topic, and voila, your script is ready!
Now, it’s time to turn the script into a voiceover. Clipchamp is the lesser-known but highly effective AI tool we are using for this. Head to their “Record and Create” section and navigate to “Text to Speech”. Choose an AI voice that sounds perfect for your video – Tony is a nice choice. Copy your script, paste it in Clipchamp, and make any adjustments to the voice pitch. Give it a quick listen, and you’ll be amazed by the results!
Visual Enhancement Using Free Stock Footage
Want to make your YouTube video pop? Let me show you how to take advantage of free stock footage to elevate your visuals. Numerous online platforms offer free stock footage, such as Pixabay, Pexels, and Freepik. It’s a no-brainer to leverage these resources to make your video engaging and captivating.
First, find a site you prefer and search for content related to your video theme. Then, start pulling those videos into your timeline. Remember to be creative, and don’t limit yourself. Feel free to mix and match stock videos, graphics, or animations to create an appealing sequence.
Once you’ve gathered your stock videos and AI-narrated voiceover, integrate and trim them for a sleek aesthetic. Your objective is to match the stock footage with the AI voiceover while fine-tuning the voice’s pace, tone, or style.
Remember, the devil is in the details, so invest time in perfecting your process.
Now, take a step back and enjoy the impressive visual display you’ve created with the help of free stock footage and AI tools. Your videos will now be more engaging and visually appealing, skyrocketing your chances of success on YouTube.
Video Editing Techniques
Here’s a pro editing tip: ensure your stock videos change every three to four seconds to keep your viewers intrigued. Then, match the narrated stock footage to your AI voiceover. Spend some time tweaking the voiceover pace, tone, and gender to suit your style.
Next, create a brief intro for your video using a tool like Canva.
Creating Intro with Canva
Canva is a free online tool that offers a variety of templates designed specifically for YouTube intros. Simply follow these steps:
Visit Canva and sign up if you haven’t already.
In the search bar, type in “YouTube video intro” to find relevant templates.
Browse and select a template that matches your video theme.
Customize the template to your liking by changing text, colors, and images as needed.
Once you’re happy with your design, download the intro clip.
Finally, add the intro to your video within your preferred video editor.
Using Canva’s array of templates, you can quickly create an eye-catching intro that complements your content and adds a professional touch to your video. Remember, having a consistent intro across multiple videos can help to solidify your brand and make your content more recognizable to viewers.
Adding Captions and Music
This can be made easy with the auto captions feature in the CapCut app. Auto-generated captions improve video accessibility and can make your content enjoyable for a wider audience. Feel free to adjust these auto-generated captions as needed, removing them during certain parts if you prefer.
Refining the Video
As you progress through creating your automated YouTube video, it’s essential to refine every aspect along the way. Ensure that your stock videos change every 3 to 4 seconds to retain viewer interest and keep them engaged with new visuals. Modify your AI voiceover to match your preferred pitch, pacing, and style. Experiment with various options and stick to one once you’re satisfied.
Take the time to perfect each step of the process, from creating an engaging intro using Canva to adding captions with the auto-caption feature in cap cut. Choose from the vast selection of royalty-free music available on YouTube Library or platforms like Pixabay to find the perfect audio for your video. Make sure the audio level complements the narration without overpowering it.
Continue refining your video by styling your captions, adding visual elements from Canva, and merging your AI voiceover with other aspects of the video. To polish off your video uploading process, create a catchy thumbnail and choose an attention-grabbing title. Utilize resources like vid IQ to identify competitive keywords and understand what works best for your video.
Creating a Thumbnail and Title Using AI and Free Resources
When creating your automated YouTube video, the last few elements to address are designing a catchy thumbnail and deciding on an enticing video title.
Title Selection: Use tools like VidIQ to research competitor’s keywords and topics, understand their success, and develop your own standout title. Analyze examples like “Get paid $28.18 every 10 minutes from Google Translate” to identify crucial keywords and unique selling points.
Thumbnail Design: To create your thumbnail, you can use an AI tool like Blue Willow. Once you’re on Discord, search for “Blue Willow AI free AI art generator” and join the free beta. Generate thumbnail image options by typing relevant keywords like “passive income” and “easy money online.”
You can decide whether to use a textless thumbnail or add text for more appeal. To add text to the thumbnail, return to Canva and select a fitting YouTube thumbnail template. Drag the image generated by Blue Willow into the template, position it in the background, remove any unwanted text, and type in your desired phrase like “Easy Online Money.” Customize by playing with different effects, and the result is an eye-catching thumbnail using AI and free resources.
With each step carefully executed, you can now see how easy it is to automate your YouTube channel using AI and free tools. Keep in mind, though, that the process is not entirely hands-free – some manual inputs are necessary for achieving that perfect look and feel. Experiment with different AI tools, voice options, and stock footage to create content that’s engaging and visually appealing.
Don’t forget to use resources like VidIQ to get insights into keyword competitiveness, and leverage AI for thumbnail creation. Once you’ve found your groove, you’ll have a time-efficient system for creating content on various topics, ultimately resulting in a polished, professional-looking YouTube channel. Remember, the journey to success lies in the details, so take your time to perfect the process – and feel free to get creative!
