What are the best AI video editors?
Descript is a video editing tool that has AI video editing features such as AI-powered voice overs and AI text-to-voice features. Descript can even turn you voice into a custom AI-powered voiceover.
When it comes to the editing process, Descript works a little differently from most other video editors. Rather than using a traditional timeline for video creation, it uses a word processing interface.
In other words, Descript allows you to edit videos the same way you edit a word document. This makes video editing really easy for beginners! For example, if you say a mistake in your video, you can just delete the word in the video transcription and it will automatically be removed from the video.
Best AI video avatar
Synthesia is a powerful platform that helps businesses create unique and engaging AI video avatars. With the help of Synthesia’s tools, you can type in some text and Synthesia will turn this text into a video spokesperson for your company or YouTube videos.
Note: you need to get permission from them via email first before using their AI avatar on youtube if you want to monetize the video).
One of the unique features Synthesia offers is the ability to turn YOU into an AI video avatar (also known as a custom AI avatar).
In other words, if you send Synthesia a video recording of yourself, they can turn it into an AI avatar that can turn text into video.
This is great for talking head videos, demo videos or any other video content for your business website without having to record a video yourself.
3. Canva Video Editor
Best free online video editor
The Canva video editor is a great way to create faceless videos for YouTube and presentation-based videos for your business.
What I like about Canva is that it has millions of video and image content that you can use in your video for free. And if you upgrade to Canva Pro you get access to even more stock footage for your videos.
Canva also has an AI image generator you can use to create unique images, artwork, and paintings for your video.
Here’s a tutorial on how to use Canva for creating faceless videos:
Best for beginners
Designs.AI allows you to create videos with text using AI in minutes. This video editing tool is best if you’re looking to create short form content for Instagram Reels, YouTube shorts or TikTok videos.
There are a lot of built-in templates for social media platforms you can use to save time when making videos.
5. Adobe Premiere Pro
Best for professionals
Adobe Premiere Pro is the best video editing software for professional videos. It can allow you to create amazing videos really fast using a lot of pre-built AI features.
Chances are if you watch some of the big YouTube channels, their video editor would have likely used Adobe Premiere Pro for creating the video content.
This tool saves you a lot of time by giving you templates for text, broll content and music. For example, this video editing software can automatically find music for your videos that fits the length of your video perfectly.
This one feature on its own will save you hours of searching for the right music for your videos (I certainly know I’ve experienced this problem before when editing my own videos for YouTube!).
6. Wondershare Filmora
Wondershare Filmora is a powerful, easy-to-use video editor with all the tools you need to create stunning videos.
It comes packed with features such as AI-powered auto color correction, chroma keying options, over 500 effects, royalty-free music and sound effects, and more. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced editor, this software has something for everyone.
One of the features I particularly like from this tool is the AI portrait feature, as seen here:
This feature can automatically remove the background using AI for any video with a video spokesperson. No more green screen needed!
Runway is a very impressive AI video maker that has a huge amount of AI-powered video editing features. In my opinion, this tool is definitely one of the best AI video makers.
Here are some of my favorite features from Runway:
Remove video backgrounds in a few clicks:
Remove any object from a video in seconds:
And it even has a feature called “Infinite Image” which allows you to expand any image using content aware features:
You can even use it to expand images generated from AI or images you upload into the tool.
Best for AI animated videos
Rawshorts is an AI video editor that lets you turn text into animated videos.
One of the features I like the most about Rawshorts is that it gives you access to millions of royalty free media that you can use for your animated videos, as seen here:
They also have a very helpful feature which uses AI to convert text or blog posts to a video, as seen here:

If you have an eCommerce site, their AI powered spreadsheet to video feature can help you create lots of video clips for YouTube or social media platforms promoting your products really quickly and easily.
Overall, if you’re looking to create videos that are animated, Rawshorts will be one of the best video editing tools to do that.
Wisecut is a very impressive video editing tool that primarily uses AI to cut out mistakes in your video. This can literally save you hours of time in the editing process!
Another great feature unique to Wisecut is it’s “Auto music” feature. This allows you to automatically match up music to your voice on the video.
Very few AI makers have this ability. It also uses automatic audio ducking to make sure the background music is low when you’re talking and louder when playing other scenes such as b-roll content.
Lumen5 is an online AI video editor that automatically converts your blogs to videos and makes talking head videos more engaging.
One of the unique features of Lumen5 that I like is its AI video repurposing feature.
This feature uses AI to take content from a long video and turn it into shorter video clips for different social media channels.
Elai is AI video editing software that lets you turn text into stunning videos for your business or YouTube channel.
Because Elai uses AI generated video avatars, you don’t need to record any videos yourself or hire a video spokesperson to record videos for you.
Elai also offers you the opportunity to use your own AI video avatars or create your own selfie avatars, as seen here:
So if you’re a business owner looking to create professional videos in less time and less money, it’s definitely worth checking out Elai.
The bottom line: What’s the best AI video editing tool?
The best AI video editing tool really depends on your preference. For example, if you want to create an AI video avatar, I’d recommend going with Synthesia.
However, if you’re looking to save time while video editing, then I’d recommend going with Descript because of it’s easy-to-use interface and powerful AI studio sound features.
Or, if you’re looking for something a little bit different, then hopefully one of the tools on the list above will match what you’re looking for.
