This AI Tool Cuts Your Long Form Storytelling into Short Clips in Minutes

AI Cuts Your Long-Form Videos

I was at a networking dinner on Tuesday, despite the bluster of wind and snow.

“How long have you lived in the city?”
“Two years.”
“How long have you lived here?”
“Um. 27 years”

I could hear the hesitation in my voice.
I was easily the oldest at the table. In the room.

Unlike my compatriots seated to my right and left, I didn’t work at Bloomberg, Amazon, Google, or Meta.

I’m a news anchor. And I’m not 27.

But hang on a second.

I had just spent the morning doing a tutorial for my women leaders on how to leverage AI for their content creation.

I piped up. “Today, I work with private clients and sit at the intersection of storytelling and AI.”

I had devoted the last few months to a thorough study of some of the latest technology, with 3 different coaches and on my own.

I shared an example of how I used AI to complement my private client work:

Monday, I conducted a coaching session.
I recorded the 51 minute clip and fed the URL to Opus.pro.

In 20 minutes, the AI platform generated 5 mini clips, burned in the captions, reformatted my interview for Instastory dimensions, ranked them in order of greatness, and allowed me to autopost to Youtube shorts.

I’m a pretty proficient editor but that whole process would have taken me 2-3 hours on my traditional linear editing software.

Opus pro, for my measly $9.00 a month, did it in 20 minutes.

The three clips created from my Monday interview is below. What do you think?
