With more than 2 million unique users last year, the AI-powered video creation service Pictory is now available as a powerful feature for ChatGPT users. Only available to Plus subscribers, it can quickly turn simple ideas into videos. Later this year, Pictory will also reshape PowerPoint presentations into professional videos.

Often hailed as the best AI video generator currently available, Pictory is one of the solutions allowing quick conversion of text such as blog posts or even short sentences into video content with a professional look ready for YouTube or Instagram. Now, the custom Pictory GPT allows ChatGPT users to quickly turn short descriptions or questions into full videos. Sadly, a ChatGPT Plus subscription is required to enjoy this feature. 

When creating videos in ChatGPT with Pictory, the user should pay attention to the information included in the question or script file input. Parameters such as language, tone, duration, target audience, and platform(s) should always be mentioned, although in some cases the "Less is more" paradigm might apply as well.

In addition to the above, those asking themselves about the things that make Pictory GPT for Videos stand out should keep in mind that this is not an AI image generator that uses a diffusion model, creating videos based on stock videos, voiceover, music, captions, and so on instead.

A Pictory account is not required, and those interested can enjoy the free trial, which allows the creation of three videos up to 10 minutes long each but also comes with unlimited previews for two weeks.

In 2023, Pictory had 2 million users who created 5 million videos. Those still new to this field who want to get started properly should take a look at Patrick Ejeke's 84-page ChatGPT Prompts: 451+ AI Powered Prompts & Techniques to Crafting Clear and Effective Prompts to Improve Your Marketing Communications, Grow Your Audience, Authority & Sales book, which aims to eliminate the guesswork often involved in AI-driven content production.
