AutoSync Voice-Over Demo

Did you know that with Pictory you could upload/record your voiceover and apply it to the entire video and the system will automatically sync the audio to the script with no input from your end? This feature is called 'Auto-sync' and here's how to use it.

Please note that the auto-sync feature for voiceovers is only available to users on Pictory's Professional and Teams Plans

Step 1: Upload the script and create a video

  1. Enter your script or article using 'Script' to video' or 'Article to video' and generate a video with it.

  2. When you land on the storyboard, ensure you are satisfied with how your script looks before proceeding.

Unlike with AI voiceovers where you can edit your script and apply the changes to be updated in the voiceover, with auto-sync, the system works with the recorded voiceover, so any changes made to the script after using auto-sync will not be reflected in the audio.

Step 2: Record/upload voice-over

  1. Under the video preview, click the 'microphone' button to either upload or record a voice-over.

    1. If you already have a prerecorded voiceover you want to upload, click 'Upload voiceover'.

    2. If you want to record your voiceover directly on Pictory, click 'Record voiceover'.

2. To record a voiceover, click "Record voice-over" and a new window will pop up. Click the red button in the middle to start recording the voice-over for the video.

3. Now, record the entire voice-over for your whole video (read out the whole script on the left side of the screen). When you are done, click the stop button in the middle of the screen to stop recording.


​4. Then, to apply:

  • click "Apply" in the bottom right corner. By default, this will apply the voice-over to the current scene you have selected.

  • However, if you want to apply it to the entire video and not on the selected scene alone, click 'Save'.


​Step 3: Make the voice-over auto-sync with the entire video

  1. Go to 'Audio' (left side navigation menu). Click 'My uploads' and then 'Voice-over' to apply your just recorded voiceover to the entire video.

  2. If you have an uploaded voiceover you can come here directly to upload your audio file.

  3. The 'My uploads' tab is where you will find all the audio files you have added to Pictory, both the ones that were directly recorded on the app and the ones that were uploaded from your PC.

    1. The most recent upload will be the voice-over you just recorded through Pictory.

  4. Hover on the voiceover and click the 'Apply' button. You will see two option

    1. Select 'Current scene' to apply it to the current scene.

    2. Select 'Entire video' to apply it to the entire video. - This is the option that utilizes the auto-sync feature.

5. When the auto-sync process starts, you will be shown the pop-up. This might take a few seconds, depending on the length of your video. Please do not close the pop-up as this will cancel the progress of the synchronization.

6. When the synchronization is down, you will be shown to see a preview of the final video with your audio applied.

Step 4: Adjust Voice-Over as needed

  1. If you need to adjust the voice-over or the timing in the video, you can now select "Adjust voice-over" below the video preview.

    1. If the preview sounds good, select 'Looks good' to close the preview and return to the storyboard.

2. If you select 'Adjust' you will be directed to another screen where You will be able to edit each scene's voice-over audio individually (trim it, move it forward/backward, etc).

  • You can also access the adjust option on the storyboard by going to the microphone icon on the scene bar and selecting 'Adjust voiceover'

3. Once you've adjusted each scene to your liking, you can preview the video or save it to apply the adjustments to the video.

And that's how you use auto-sync!
