Welcome to Video Puppet

Hi there!

I’m very excited to start opening Video Puppet to a wider audience. Video Puppet is an online service that that enables trainers, educators and marketers to create videos much faster than with traditional editing tools. It will automatically align timelines, speed up, slow down or pause video segments to match your audio. Using the latest advances in machine learning, the Puppet can even create a life-like narration audio from your text.

I built this tool as I got frustrated with how long it takes to create short promo videos. Usually, it took me several hours of work to create a few minutes of good video content, and most of that time had nothing to do with the content itself, but with timelines, transitions, recording and re-recording narration after small mistakes. With Video Puppet, creating a five minute promo video takes only 10-15 minutes.

Try it out now: for beginners, put some narration text into speaker notes in a Powerpoint document, and upload it here.

If you like to configure all the details, create a video script containing your key scenes and assets. Check out the video script documentation for more info, and some nice examples.

Video Puppet is my project for the 2018 Startup School. I’ve been working on it for a few months, and it is still a bit rough around the edges, but hopefully you will find it useful. As this is still in beta, please do provide as much feedback as you can, especially if things don’t work out the way you expect.
