The future is upon us. AI (Artificial Intelligence) video generators are here and they are here to stay. Sites like SYNTHESIA, SYNTHESYS and ELAI are great creative tools that many people will find useful. They do have the potential to save you time and money as you can create your own promo videos without the need to hire a video production company or actors. The question you have to ask yourself is do you want to be spending your precious time creating videos yourself? You will still need to take time to write a creative script and generate the videos. Time that could be used focusing on your product or service. Just like any other creative tool there is a learning curve to using AI generators. The videos that can be created are restricted (as of Oct 2022) to one avatar speaking directly into the 'camera'. They can not walk around or interact with another avatar. Each of the sites we discuss do have monthly or yearly fees, which we do not get into. Please click on the links provided to get pricing information.
This blog is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the world of AI generators. It's purpose is to introduce you to the concept of AI video generators, give you a few choices to check out and start you down the AI generator world!
Although there are AI art, photo and music generators, in this article we will only be discussing the video generators.

An AI avatar generated by SYNTHESIA
SYNTHESIA is an AI video generator that turns written text into talking head videos. Synthesia offers a number of features including: over 70+ AI avatars, 65+ languages, 50+ video templates, background music, closed captioning and much more. They have templates for training videos, how to videos and product marketing videos. Your videos can be up to 30 minutes long. It's fairly easy to create the videos: Once you've logged in chose the type of video you want to create and your avatar, type in your script, chose your design and background, add in titles, background music and your logo. Two very cool features are that you can customize your avatar by uploading your own voice and image to use in the video instead of an AI generated avatar. Synthesia allows for a free trial without having to give any credit card information.
SYNTHESYS breaks down their AI generators into AI Audio, AI video and AI avatars, and they price them individually and as a package. The AI audio allows you to generate human voices reading your script for radio commercials, podcasts or voice over for your digital content. The AI video allows you to create videos from your text. It's a fairly simple process: you chose the look and voice of your avatar, add your script, select the template for your video based on the type of video you are creating and then click go! Unlike Synthesia, Synthesys does not allow a free trial.
ELAI works very much like Synthesia and Synthesys and like them, the video categories are: learning and development videos, marketing videos and corporate communications videos - all videos that require a 'talking head'. As like the other sites you get to chose the look and sound of your avatar, the language and the design of your video from a template. However, Elai allows you to generate your video from scratch. One fun option with Elai is the Cartoon Avatars. Elai does allow for free trial but only after giving your credit card information.
