In this article, we’ll present you with a list of the 5 most prominently used AI video editing apps that are supposed to help you in your video creation process. We tried to cover apps that differ in advantages and applications so that each user can find something to their preference. 

Considering that we’re talking about AI apps for mobile devices here, we assume you’ll most probably be using them for social media content. However, even if there are readers who’d like to test these apps for more ambitious projects, like editing music videos or short films, we’re positive that these apps will suit their needs as well. 

Adobe Premiere Pro 

Powered by Adobe Sensei, Adobe Premiere Pro is revolutionizing the video editing landscape with the seamless integration of AI technology, redefining the way content creators approach their projects. 

You’ll find these features most useful: 

  • Color Match – Effortlessly synchronize colors between two video clips by selecting a clip to edit and a reference clip in the Lumetri Color panel, enabling Face Detection for precise skin tone matching, and applying automatic adjustments with the option to fine-tune as required. 
  • Morph Cut – To enhance the flow and continuity of interviews and talking head videos with multiple jump cuts, use the Morph Cut transition from the Effects panel, utilizing face tracking and optical flow interpolation for a seamless, high-quality video appearance that eliminates awkward pauses and choppy editing. 
  • Scene Edit Detection – Automates the process of cutting longer videos into original shorter clips, saving you time and effort; simply right-click a clip on your timeline, choose Scene Edit Detection, and select your preferred option for adding cuts, creating sub-clips, or placing clip markers at each cut point. 
  • Auto Reframe – Instantly identifies the focal point of action in your shots and keeps it visible while converting horizontal 16:9 video footage into a tall 9:16 aspect ratio, eliminating the need for time-consuming keyframe motion edits and making it convenient for sharing on social media platforms with square or tall aspect ratios. 

And more. 

According to official statements, Adobe’s commitment to integrating AI into Premiere Pro has a goal of opening up a world of possibilities for video editors. By harnessing the power of AI, creators can focus more on their creative vision and storytelling, while the software takes care of the technical complexities.

Clipchamp may be a less known video editor but it’s definitely worth mentioning because they’ve implemented important AI features and continue to experiment in the field. 

The impression we got is that Clipchamp wants to make video editing as easy and approachable as possible. They don’t want to create a complex, high-end product; quite the opposite. 

These are AI features they’ve introduced so far: 

  • Text-to-speech – Create engaging TikTok trends or professional business videos effortlessly with the versatile AI voiceover maker from Clipchamp, offering 400 lifelike AI voices in multiple languages, adjustable voice styles, pitches, and the choice of neutral, feminine, or masculine tones to perfectly match your video requirements.

  • Speaker coach – Gain real-time feedback on every camera recording to become a confident and engaging speaker, allowing you to check the pace and pitch of your speech, re-record as needed, identify and eliminate filler words for a more impactful presentation. 

From the above, you can see they decided to focus on less represented features, in comparison to other AI video editors. That way, they’re filling in the gaps that more known apps have overseen. 

In addition to that, they’ve announced they plan to include AI audio enhancements in the near future as well. 

And finally, if you prefer to approach new apps like a nerd, Clipchamp’s got you covered. There are several thorough tutorials on how to use these features (and why), guiding you step by step. Also, you can always come back to these videos when you feel as if you’ve missed a step or feel stuck in your editing process.

You can automatically turn blog posts into videos or transform zoom recordings into captivating clips.

Plus, they make special effort into teaching their users how to improve their storytelling so that they can still feel like they’re expressing authentically through their video content.
