Frequently asked questions

How long does it take the convert a YouTube video with Imaginario AI?

There are three steps to converting YouTube videos with Imaginario AI, and how long each takes depends on a few factors:

  • The speed of your internet connection, if you are uploading a file directly
  • The length and resolution of the video you are importing
  • The length, resolution and complexity of the videos you are exporting

We use three steps to convert YouTube videos into other formats. If you want to convert a simple conversational video (for example a podcast interview) into multiple social clips, the entire process will take less than 10 minutes.

Step 1 – Import your videos

Importing can be done either through a file upload, or by allowing us to grab the videos directly from YouTube.

Step 2 – We’ll process your videos

Our AI will watch your videos, and index all the visuals, audio and action. Once processing is complete, you will be able to take advantage of all our AI-driven features such as multi-modal search, Magic Clips, transcription and more. You will receive a notification when processing is complete.

Step 3 – Edit and convert your videos

Either use Magic Clips to create edits automatically, or edit manually for precise control. Once you are happy with your clips, we will trim, reframe and export your new clips. You will receive a notification when your export is ready, and you will always be able to access your exports from your account.
