Shred Video on iOS Creates Movies Using Artificial Intelligence

The Shred Video app automatically selects the best action moments from each video, as a well as a clip from a chosen song, to create a short movie for sharing on Instagram.

Users looking to easily combine their iPhone videos with music for sharing on Instagram have a new option in Shred Video, a free video app featured in the Best New Apps category on iTunes.

With Shred Video, users import up to 15 photos or video clips to create each 15-second movie, and can add a song by choosing one from their iTunes library, or searching for something on SoundCloud. While the app can be used by everyone, it’s been designed for ‘action sports athletes and adventure travelers,’ and uses artificial intelligence to pick the best ‘action’ moments from each clip to highlight in the final product. Similarly, the app remixes the chosen song, and chooses its best section, so the final video matches the best part of the song.

The process of ‘shredding’ the final product takes a few seconds, and users can tap the music and video buttons to receive a different song clip or different remix of the imported photos and videos, until they’re satisfied with the final product.

Users can save the finished video to their camera roll for future access, and have the option of jumping straight to Instagram to share the result there. Videos have a Shred watermark by default, but this can be removed from all future videos for an in-app purchase of $7.99.

Shred Video is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store. The app is also available on the Mac App Store.
