InVideo is the best Vidnami alternative (or replacement, now that Vidnami is gone). Learn why in my InVideo Review here.
If you’re looking to quickly create engaging, professional-looking (faceless or not) videos for YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, etc. (and many other uses), InVideo is an awesome choice.
InVideo is more than just a text-to-video software: it’s a powerful online video creator with tons of other features.
Once you get used to it, you’ll be creating amazing videos quickly and easily, as no previous video editing skills are needed.
Thousands of premium templates sure to speed up your video content production and get results fast.
Ease of Use
There is a bit of a learning curve. But once you get used to its intuitive editor, it’ll become very easy to use.
Compared with similar tools, it’s not too expensive. Especially if paid annually (you get 6 months for free) and with the 25% off discount.
Definitely the fastest support I’ve ever found online. Always available, polite, nice and helpful.
What Is InVideo?
InVideo is an online video editor that helps users — regardless of their experience or technical skills — quickly create engaging, professional-quality videos of all types.
It’s designed for those looking to promote their brand, services/products, written content, affiliate offers, grow on social media or reach success on YouTube.
InVideo allows you to create videos in all formats and dimensions from a collection of 5,000+ premium templates, your own template customizations, or a blank canvas.
You can also convert your written content like blog posts or articles into videos through InVideo’s AI-powered text-to-video feature.
Despite not being exclusively a text-to-video software (it has more features), InVideo is the best Vidnami replacement.
It’s also a great alternative to similar tools like Wave.Video, WeVideo, Lumen5, Animoto and Promo.
How Does InVideo Work?
You have 3 main options when it comes to creating videos with InVideo:
With over 5,000 premium templates for multiples uses and different aspect ratios to choose from, you’ll be creating your video in no time.
All you need is to add your text and adapt your selected template to fit your needs and brand colors. (You set them up on the Brand Presets page.)
Additionally, you can customize any template to make it your own for later reuse.
If you prefer to create something truly unique, you’ll want to go with the Blank Canvas option.
It’s all up to you with this option here. Start adding elements to your video scenes like images, video clips, text boxes, shapes, masks, and so on.
Text to Video
Last but not least is the Text to Video option. This is the feature that makes InVideo the best Vidnami alternative, in my opinion.
You just need to pick one of the 50+ pre-configured templates and choose your preferred video dimension.
Then you type in your headline, and 1) paste in your script, 2) paste the URL to one of your blog posts or articles, or 3) add images or video clips to create your video.
While both the previous options send you directly to InVideo’s Advanced Editor, the Text to Video feature also comes with the Storyboard editor.
This is where you’ll be able to see (and change) which images and/or video clips InVideo’s AI has used to create the scenes for your video based on your text.
Finally, you can go to the Advanced Editor to further improve your video production.
InVideo’s Features vs Benefits for You
Artificial Intelligence for Automatic Media Selection
The tool’s AI engine analyzes any text you enter and automatically chooses the most relevant images, animations, and/or video clips from its extensive media library to create your video.
Although not as good as Vidnami’s artificial intelligence, it allows you to skip the lengthy media selection step and create amazing videos in far less time.
Compared to other expensive video editing software, it makes InVideo quicker and easier to use.
Intelligent Video Assistant
The Intelligent Video Assistant (IVA) works similarly to Grammarly, but for videos.
It fixes technical issues with the design and layout of your videos, improving their quality instantly.
More than 500,000 videos were analyzed to train the artificial intelligence engine that’s behind this feature.
Essentially, IVA’s proprietary text recognition algorithm and automated recognition engine help to make sure your videos come with:
- Text legibility
- Optimal text length
- Proper text alignment
- Ideal text duration in each scene
- Recommended text box size
- Symmetrical frame equilibrium
- Best animation style for individual elements
- Visual smoothness and continuity
- Dynamic motion effects for still images
- Anti-blur image augmentation
- Smart scene duration
1080p Full HD Quality
InVideo’s paid plans (Business and Unlimited) allow you to create premium high-quality full HD videos at a 1080p resolution.
On the free plan, you’re able to make HD videos but at a 720p resolution only.
All your brand information like brand name, logo, colors, social media handles, outro clip (in all available aspect ratios) can be added to the Brand Presets setting page.
Any video projects you create going forward will have your logo and outro.
All video elements (like text boxes and transitions, for example) whose colors can be edited can then be set to use your brand colors.
InVideo is working on an update that’ll allow multiple Brand Presets.
All Video Dimensions/Aspect Ratios
All video dimensions (aspect ratios) are available to accommodate the different social media platforms’ video requirements:
- Wide (16:9 Landscape): YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter feed;
- Square (1:1): Instagram and Facebook feed, Facebook Carousel Ad, Pinterest;
- Vertical (9:16 Portrait): YouTube Shorts, Facebook and Instagram Stories, Instagram Reels, IGTV, Pinterest, TikTok, Snapchat.
In other words, you can create videos for all the placement types on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok.
To create videos for multiple social media platforms, you duplicate your video in a different dimension using the “Resize” option.
Thousands of Fully Customizable Video Templates
With over 5,000 pre-made, user-friendly templates, you have plenty to choose from to create the kind of video that best suits your needs.
There are also multiple templates for social media trends, to help you quickly leverage them to promote your business.
Being fully customizable, you’ll be able to easily edit them to make them your own and reuse them as you see fit.
You can include your own logos, add new background images and textures, choose different fonts and colors, and plenty more.
(A more direct way of creating your own templates will soon be added, according to InVideo’s support.)
If you wish to start from scratch and create a 100% unique template for your brand or your client’s, the Blank Canvas option is the way to go.
Automated Text to Speech Voice Overs
You’re able to record your own voice-over, upload a pre-recorded voice track, import an audio file from your “My Uploads” folder, or use the “Automated Text to Speech” feature.
You can add automated voice-overs to each scene individually or the entire video.
In total, there are 28 options for male and female voices in 20 languages, counting English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese varieties.
Besides the already mentioned, there’s also Turkish, Swedish, Russian, Romanian, Polish, Dutch, Norwegian, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Icelandic, German, Danish, Welsh, Chinese Mandarin, and Arabic.
As one would expect, while some voice-over options are okay, others feel more robotic.
Support and training are without a doubt two of InVideo’s greatest assets.
There are easy-to-follow training videos to help you get started or unstuck. There is a lot of written documentation available, too.
If you need answers right away, just use their 24/7 chat support which is incredibly fast to respond.
The support staff is friendly, polite, and patient… and ready to clear out any sort of questions you may have about the tool or your account.
They have also managed to create a thriving Facebook community where you can learn more about using the tool from both the admins and other members.
The tool’s ease of use, artificial intelligence features, intuitive drag-and-drop interface, and extensive stock media library make video creation less expensive, faster and accessible to everyone than other more expensive solutions.
Being updated… Thank you for your time.
