You can edit videos… with AI 👇
While many are familiar with AI-generated images, and tools like DALL-E 2 and Midjourney, fewer are aware of the growing trend of AI-generated video.
Runway is an upcoming player in this space. It doesn’t just allow for auto-captioning and motion tracking; it opens a new world of possibilities for content creators.
(keep reading to get your mind blown!)
Here are (some of) Runway’s video AI Tools:
🪄 Text-to-color grade.
✨ Add fake bokeh to videos.
❌ Remove objects from videos.
🙂 Automatically blur faces.
🖼️ Replace video backgrounds.
🐌 Super-slow down any video.
🎬 Automatically split footage.
🎧 Auto-remove silence from audio.
📸 Blur any video background.
Runway’s “Gen-1” 🤯
This cutting-edge AI technology allows users to generate new videos using text, image, and video prompts.
The tool has 5 modes that cater to video content creators' different needs and preferences: “Stylization,” “Storyboard,” “Mask,” “Render,” and “Customization.”
🖼 Mode 01: Stylization
Allows users to transfer any image or prompt style to every frame of their video. This mode is perfect for those who want to add a unique touch to their videos, making them stand out from the crowd.
📚 Mode 02: Storyboard
Allows users to turn mockups into fully stylized and animated renders. This mode is ideal for those who want to bring their ideas to life by creating a visual representation of their story.
✨ Mode 03: Mask
Users can isolate subjects in videos and modify them with simple text prompts. This mode is helpful for those who want to edit specific subjects.
💻️ Mode 04: Render
Turns untextured renders into realistic outputs by applying an input image or prompt. This mode is perfect for creating realistic and professional-looking animations without putting in hours of manual work.
🔧 Mode 05: Customization
The ultimate tool for those who want to unleash the full power of "Gen-1." This mode allows users to customize the model for even higher fidelity results, giving them complete control over the output.
The End of Adobe? 🤔
Adobe's long-standing presence in the creative software industry faces increased competition from other innovative tools. Adobe Creative Cloud, a desktop-based software, requires a subscription and is known for its high cost, making it less accessible to the general public.
As the creative software industry continues to evolve, we’re seeing more creative tools on the horizon. This includes Descript, which allows you to edit videos like a word document; Canva, an innovative all-in-one tool; and CapCut, a web & app-based video editor optimized for social media content.
Despite its long-standing presence in the market, Adobe must adopt the successful models of these new, innovative, creative tools:
✅ Freemium model
👨💻 Web-based platform
👥 Collaborative features
But Adobe, being a leader in the tech industry, is not one to be left behind. The company has realized they need to make changes and have done the following:
✅ Integrated Adobe Sensei into their software (Adobe’s AI platform).
✅ Acquired Figma, a free web-based, collaborative tool.
✅ Acquired Frame.io, an online video review & collaboration platform.
✅ Launched Adobe Podcast, free web-based AI-powered audio tools.
✅ Launched free, web-based versions of their tools.
Scribe: The ultimate solution for recording your processes. Record videos and autogenerate visual step-by-step guides with their Chrome extension.
Turn any process into a step-by-step guide, instantly.
• Click record
• Do the thing you want to show someone (like how to reset a password)
• Get a beautiful auto-generated guide
No manual screenshots. The Scribe does it for you.

Raycast: Raycast streamlines Mac workflows, serving as a replacement for Spotlight. It allows users to launch apps, open files, and control their Mac with keyboard shortcuts. With extensions, users can connect to services like Trello and Google Drive and access them directly from Raycast. An excellent solution for power users and those seeking efficiency.
@jamesjgill @raycastapp I loooooooove Raycast.
Just the Spotify extension, clipboard history, snippets, and window management options make it far better than Spotlight
