March 2024 product update: more integration with your workflows

It’s been a busy few weeks for our product and development teams, and we’ve shipped some great new features recently to make your video search and repurposing experience faster and easier than ever. One thing we always hear from our customers is that they want their workflows to be as seamless as possible, so a big focus for us recently has been how we can make Imaginario AI fit into the flows and processes you’re already using.

Magic Clips

This is more than just a feature, this is a whole new way to use Imaginario AI. By combining several of our AI features into one workflow, you are able to auto-generate shareable portrait clips from long-form content in a single click.

Magic Clips uses our dialogue recognition to detect themes and conversation topics within your videos, then pick out the key lines and shareable snippets. Then, it uses face detection to center the subjects in the frame (even across multiple cuts), and adds animated captions. Export the clips you like, and you’re good to go.

We’ve built Magic Clips with TikTok in mind, but it will work equally well for Reels, YouTube Shorts, or any other portrait video platform.

AWS integration

For our larger clients, integration with their existing infrastructure is super important. We’ve been speaking to our users to identify which integrations are most valuable for them, and this month we rolled out the first direct connection to Amazon Web Services S3 buckets.

So, if you’re storing lots of video files in AWS, importing them into our platform is now as simple as securely connecting your bucket and choosing which files to import for processing. For the power users out there:

  • You can choose to connect an entire bucket, or just a folder within that bucket
  • You can connect more than one bucket and easily toggle between each
  • For those who want to use their processing minutes wisely, you can choose to import every video within a bucket (or folder), or manually select which videos are imported
  • You can disconnect a bucket whenever you like, and the imported videos will remain in your Imaginario account
  • There are no limits on the number of AWS connections or the number of files within a connected bucket

XML export for Adobe Premiere & Da Vinci Resolve

You can do more editing than ever in our platform, but we know we’re never going to be where the pros go to do their edits. So, this month we launched a much-asked-for feature for our pro editor users – you can now export the clips you create in Imaginario in .xml format, and open them up in Adobe Premiere or Da Vinci Resolve for extra editing.

This is also a great option for people who work with proxies and want to recreate their Imaginario clips in higher resolutions.

Simply click the Premiere export button wherever you see it within the platform, and you’ll get an .xml file containing all your edits, which you can relink to your local version to finish your edits in Premiere or Da Vinci Resolve.

More happening, and much more to come

We also deployed plenty of invisible changes this month, including backend optimizations which speed up the processing of videos and give us greater capacity to process large amounts of video simultaneously. We’ve got plenty of exciting updates coming in the next few weeks and months, including:

  • New search modalities that let you find exactly what you’re looking for across more types of video
  • Even more integrations with third-party services
  • Extra support for more file formats
  • A completely refreshed UI

Stay tuned!
