How to generate AI Videos in 15 Minutes
Creating videos can be a daunting task, requiring significant time, effort, and resources. Outsourcing video production can take several weeks and cost thousands of dollars, while creating videos yourself requires expensive equipment and extensive knowledge of video editing.
With the advent of AI video generators, however, the entire process can be made more cost-effective, scalable, and less time-consuming. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of creating an AI video using Colossyan Creator, our AI video generator.
By leveraging AI technology, users can create video content at scale and without special skills or equipment. In just 15 minutes, you can have a high-quality, AI-generated video that can be easily updated and modified.
So, let's dive into the world of AI video generation and learn how to create AI videos in under 5 minutes using Colossyan.
Step 1: Select a design path
Before starting anything technical, you’ll have to choose a design path to follow.
There are a few ways to start the whole process when you’re first creating a video. From the drafts page in Colossyan Creator, click “New draft”. You’ll be shown 3 options:
- Start from scratch
- Use AI technology to create a design with prompt to video
- Customize one of our many templates
Alternatively, if you’re thinking of using existing slide decks or PPT files, from the drafts page, you can select:
- Import (this is where you can import a PPT or PDF file)
Video templates speed up the whole design process and are great for beginners. Colossyan offers 20+ video templates for various video types, including training videos, marketing videos, explainer videos, video presentations, and more.
These templates are professionally designed, but you can still customize each element to your liking. Even if you choose to start from scratch, you’ll still be able to select a template when adding a new scene.
Step 2: Write a video script
Once you’ve selected the design for your video, you can begin working on your script, which is crucial in creating an engaging video.
While it may be tempting to simply copy and paste text into an AI video generator, I advise against this approach. Instead, take the time to review your text and transform it into a well-crafted video script. Follow our 7-step framework in this comprehensive guide on writing a video script and watch your video marketing efforts soar.

Step 3: Select an AI avatar
The next step in the process is to select an AI avatar.
The AI avatar will serve as the narrator or presenter in your video, adding a touch of magic to the final product. With over +50 diverse options to choose from, you can customize the appearance and placement of the avatar to best fit your needs. (If you're unfamiliar with the concept of an AI avatar, don't worry - we've provided a short video featuring our avatar Jason to explain)..
To add an AI avatar in Colossyan Creator, simply click on 'Actor' in the top panel of the video canvas and select the avata ryou want to use. From there, you can adjust the framing, position, and size of the avatar to create a polished and professional final product.
Step 4: Use Text-to-Speech Technology for Professional Voiceovers
In this exciting step, we leverage the power of AI to create professional-grade voiceovers using text-to-speech technology.
The process is simple: copy and paste your video script into the designated script box, slide by slide. Within seconds, your script will be transformed into a high-quality AI voiceover.
Our system automatically selects the language based on the text, but you have the option to modify it and select the perfect accent, dialect, and voice style. While our text-to-speech technology is highly advanced, adjustments can be made to improve the narration, such as correcting mispronunciations, adding pauses and emphasis, and more.
Step 5: Edit the video
Colossyan Creator has everything you need to create a visually striking video.
You can add several elements to your AI video all from within the application:
- Upload your own images or choose from thousands of stock photos and videos
- Upload background videos or screen recordings
- Select or upload background music
- Create shapes
- Add text on screen
- Add animations, transitions, GIFs, icons, and logos.
Step 6: Generate the Video
