AI-Type:

AI Video, AI Translation

What It Does

You can easily create your how-to videos or tutorial videos in minutes without any video editing skills by using explainer video templates with different themes. You can also translate your videos seamlessly with one click, using a natural voice clone and authentic speaking style!

Why It’s Awesome

HeyGen has a variety of functions that can be employed in minutes. My favorite is the video translation function that allows you to convert any video of a person speaking into a different language using your words, voice, and facial movements. I used it to create a video of myself speaking Spanish. Read more about that in the Colombia, Not Columbia article.

Descript

Type: AI Writing, AI Video Editing

What It Does: Descript is the only tool you need to write, record, transcribe, edit, collaborate, and share your videos and podcasts.

Why It’s Awesome: I use Descript for a variety of tasks, but the main ones involve long-form video transcription, video editing through script editing, and voice avatar creation for audio narration. It works fast and it’s easy to use after you get the lay of the land.
