3 Simple Steps to Convert Text to Video

The idea here is to understand how to create the best piece of text to generate the right AI video for you.

1. Define Your Objective

Begin by laying a strong foundation. When embarking on the journey of crafting captivating videos, the initial step is to establish a clear purpose.

  • Are you aiming to provide a condensed summary to pique viewers' interest?
  • Or perhaps elucidate a complex concept?
  • Or maybe you aspire to showcase a specific skill?

Take a moment to ponder the rationale behind your decision to convert text into video content and then pay attention to the logistics.

  • Who is your intended audience?
  • How will this video be distributed to the audience?
  • Where will your audience consume the video?
  • How long should this information be?

By understanding the purpose behind your video, you will be able to shape its structure and approach the conversion process effectively.

2. Identify structural units of the text

How do you want to start the video? What will be the main information relayed in the middle? Do you want to end the video with an example or a task? What will be the crucial hook?

Once you have laid out all these details in front of you, you’ve got a loose structure down for your video. You can now start filling out the finer details.

  • Will the video start with text on the screen?
  • Which sections would you like for an AI avatar to present the content and which sections would you want just a voiceover along with text on the screen?
  • When do you want images, infographics, and/or videos to pop up on the screen?

After this, you’re going to write a script for your video and move to the next step.

3. Paste your script and generate AI video

Whether you’re summarizing a blog or writing a conversational script for a product walkthrough, you just need to paste the script in a text to video AI tool like Rephrase Studio and take it from there.

Pro tip: For one last time, read your script aloud and see if it feels robotic or unnatural. If it sounds like the way you’d talk to someone in real life, you’re on the right track.

Select a background look, pick a background music, add text, images, and animations on screen and hit export.
