YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, and TikTok videos are short-form video formats that have gained immense popularity in recent years. These platforms provide users with the ability to create and share bite-sized videos that are typically less than a minute-long.

These short video formats have become popular for several reasons:

  1. Attention Span: Short-form videos cater to the decreasing attention span of users. With the abundance of content available on social media, shorter videos are more likely to capture and retain viewers' attention.
  2. Easy Consumption: Short videos are quick and easy to consume, making them ideal for users who are looking for quick entertainment or information without investing a significant amount of time.
  3. Creativity and Expressiveness: These platforms offer users a wide range of creative tools and features to enhance their videos, including filters, effects, music, and text overlays. This allows users to express their creativity and produce visually appealing and engaging content.
  4. Virality and Discoverability: Short-form videos have a higher chance of going viral due to their shareability and discoverability features on social media platforms. Users can easily share and repost these videos, increasing their reach and potential for virality.
  5. Trending and Community Engagement: YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, and TikTok videos often revolve around popular trends, challenges, and hashtags. Users can participate in these trends, engage with the community, and gain exposure to a wider audience.

These platforms have become important for content creators, influencers, and businesses as they provide an opportunity to reach a large and engaged audience. Their popularity and requirement stem from the fact that they offer a unique and effective way to communicate, entertain, and connect with others in a short and engaging format.

Quote Video Maker

The Quote Video Maker script is an open-source tool that allows users to create high-quality vertical quote videos for platforms like Shorts, Reels, and TikTok in just about 15 seconds per video.

The script is created using Python, Pillow for generating text-based images, and FFMPEG for video editing.

How Does it Work?

#1 Content

I got a 50+ stock background video (of mainly nature), 40 audio files and 10 fonts.

#2 Editing

The script works by taking a background video from '/videos', an audio file from '/audios', a random font, and a quote (a bible verse) from the JSON file, and combining them all into 1 video.

I am using PILLOW to generate the text in different fonts and FFMPEG to combine them all as fast as possible (I used MoviePy at the beginning but it was too slow).

All the video files and audio files are copyright-free from stock footage websites (Pexels, Pixabay, etc.), and the fonts are copyright-free as well.

How to run the script?

Follow the instructions given below to get this script up and running on your device.

  1. Download this repository as zip file / using git.
  2. Open the folder.
  3. Make sure all the required modules are installed. (pip install -r requirements.txt)
  4. Open main.py
  5. set the number of videos you want, your logo, and choose a quote file from '/sources/verses_data' (you can also use the topical bible verses scraper I developed)
number_of_videos = 99
customer_name = "your_name"
image_file = f"{project_dir}/sources/logo.png"
json_file = f"{project_dir}/sources/verses_data/love_data.json"
  1. RUN!
  2. And that's it! Everything else will be handled automatically!
  3. You can find your video in the customers/your-name/ directory.
