Create custom, professional-looking slideshows from user-uploaded music and photos…
Animoto is a web application that, with the click of a button, produces videos using images and music that a user selects.
Their “patent-pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology and high-end motion design” drives the web app. They say the Cinematic A.I. analyzes users’ photos and music like an actual director and editor. For instance, to analyze music the genre, song structure, energy, rhythm, instrumentation, and vocals are all taken into consideration.
Once completed, videos can be emailed, downloaded and embedded into other sites. The company says no two videos are ever the same.
Main competitors – Rockyou.com and Slide.com
