YouTube recently announced a series of innovative AI tools aimed at revolutionizing content creation on its platform.
Among the five features showcased, one named “Dream Screen” caught the attention of users and creators alike. The feature enables users to incorporate AI-generated images or videos as backgrounds for their YouTube Shorts.
In a demo, YouTube displayed how Dream Screen works. Users can type in a prompt specifying their desired video or image as the background within the Short-creating UI. For instance, a user typed in “Panda drinking coffee,” and the platform instantaneously generated a plethora of captivating videos portraying this scene.
These generated videos can then be effortlessly combined and overlaid with other clips, giving creators the freedom to imagine and craft unique content.
The platform will also introduce the “AI insights” feature next year. Drawing insights from what the audience is already watching, the AI suggestions provided by this feature allow creators to gain valuable inspiration and improve the effectiveness of their videos.
The innovative tool acts as an in-depth guide, empowering creators to understand their audience’s preferences better and tailor their content accordingly.
Another feature, “Assistive Search in Creator Music,” available next year, utilizes AI to reduce the time wasted on scrolling through countless music options to find the perfect soundtrack for a video. By leveraging the power of AI, creators can swiftly discover the ideal background score that complements their visuals, ensuring a seamless and engaging viewing experience.
Not stopping there, YouTube aims to bridge language barriers and expand the reach of creators with an automatic dubbing tool. With this tool, viewers can toggle between the original language and AI-generated dubbing in their native language, making content more accessible and interactive for global audiences.
The platform also unveiled “YouTube Create,” a user-friendly editing app designed specifically for mobile devices. This intuitive application allows creators to effortlessly edit their YouTube content using creative options, including text, stickers, sound, captions, and voiceover capabilities. With the app, creators can now edit their videos seamlessly on the go, allowing for quick and efficient content creation.
