Creating a Video with AI Copilot

Overview

The SundaySky AI Copilot is an AI Assistant that turns an idea into a video in under five minutes. Using conversational text prompts, the information you provide creates a video, complete with script, media assets, animation, and voice-over narration.

As an added benefit, before Copilot creates your video, you'll receive a brief detailing the content of the video, tone, calls to action, and video length. This brief can be saved, shared with your colleagues, or edited so that Copilot can generate an updated video. You can, for example, create a video with a casual, friendly tone and then use the video's brief to create another version with a more professional tone.

For more information about AI Copilot, see SundaySky AI Copilot (Beta)—FAQ.

  Tips for Working with AI Copilot

If you prefer, you can ignore all the options offered by AI Copilot and write your own input instead.
When AI Copilot presents you with multiple options from which to select, you can choose more than one.
If a suggested scene does not meet your requirements, you can ask to change it or add a new one. The same applies to a CTA.
At any stage, you can write "no more questions" to stop AI Copilot from asking questions. AI Copilot will then generate the brief immediately.
  At the end of the conversation, based on your input, the video brief is displayed.
▶ The brief is completely editable. Among other edits, you can add or remove scenes, change the order, and increase or decrease the length of the video.

6. (Optional) Click the Save brief icon if you'd like to save the brief for future use.
