YouTube has unveiled a new mobile editing app called YouTube Create, as well as several AI-powered features that aim to assist creators in the video production process.
YouTube Create is designed to streamline the production process for both Shorts and long-form videos. The app includes standard editing features such as trimming, clipping, cropping, and adjusting video speed. It also offers over 40 transitions to choose from, making it easier for creators to blend videos, photos, and audio together.
Additionally, YouTube Create provides options for adjusting saturation and brightness, applying filters and effects, and adding emojis, stickers, and GIFs. With hundreds of fonts and animated text effects available, creators can make their videos more visually engaging.
The app also offers various audio editing capabilities. Creators can record voiceovers directly within YouTube Create and enhance their videos with thousands of royalty-free music tracks and sound effects. The app even includes a beat matching feature that syncs video clips to the rhythm of the selected soundtrack.
To further enhance the editing experience, YouTube has introduced several “Next-Level Video Editing Features.” These include the ability to automatically add captions or subtitles to videos with just one tap in select languages, remove background noise with the audio clean-up tool, and use the cut-out effect to remove the video’s background.
When it comes to exporting videos, YouTube Create provides multiple aspect ratios, including portrait, landscape, and square, allowing creators to share their content across different platforms and formats. The app also offers a one-button YouTube upload feature for seamless sharing.
Currently, YouTube Create is launching as an Android beta in eight countries: the US, UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Indonesia, India, and Singapore. iOS support is expected to arrive in 2024.
Alongside YouTube Create, YouTube has introduced another feature called “Dream Screen.” This AI-powered tool generates generative video and image backgrounds for Shorts. Users simply need to type in a prompt, and Dream Screen will create unique backgrounds. While it is currently available to select creators, it will have a broader launch next year.
In addition to YouTube Create and Dream Screen, YouTube has also announced other AI-powered tools. AI Insights aims to help creators spark new ideas and offers suggestions based on what their audience is watching on YouTube. This can be found in the “Research” tab of Channel analytics, allowing creators to search for ideas and generate an outline.
Another tool called Aloud’s AI-powered automatic dubbing will be coming to YouTube, allowing creators to automatically dub their videos. Furthermore, YouTube will soon introduce Assistive Search in Creator Music, which will suggest the right music at the right price when creators type in a description of their content.
With these new features and tools, YouTube aims to empower creators and provide them with the necessary resources to enhance their video content. From editing capabilities to AI-powered insights and assistance, YouTube is committed to making the creation process more accessible and efficient for creators worldwide.
