Automations are the latest way to create videos for a podcast on Headliner. With it, you'll be able to automatically have clips/full episode videos for your podcast generated for you and your show. With Headliner and its automations, you'll be able to promote the latest episode of your show using video without needing to create or select the clips yourself!
How to use Automations:
1. Getting started and setting up your feed
The first step in getting automated videos is getting your show signed up for automation. You can do this by entering the Projects Page and clicking on the blue plus button located on the left side of the screen.
Alternatively, you can also create an automation from our Create Page by clicking on the Automatic Audiogram wizard.
Then, find your podcast using our podcast search box (if you cannot find your show, please contact email@example.com and send us a link to it on Apple Podcasts or a link to your RSS feed)
Doing this will add your podcast to your profile, which can then be signed up for automated videos. To do this, click on your podcast artwork on the projects page and click on the button labeled new to create a new automation queue for your show.
You'll then be able to select your video destination. The destination you select will help us optimize the type of video you're looking to create for that platform. This includes deciding on the optimal aspect ratio for your post, as well as video length (full podcast episodes vs clips).
If you have selected one of the options for podcast clips, you will be able to designate whether or not you want our AI to select moments from your show for your videos, or if you would like us to default to using Soundbite tags from your RSS feed.
You will then be asked to select the template that you would like your Automation to use, which include any of the personal templates that you've saved your chosen aspect ratio.
You will also be asked whether you would only like to receive videos for your latest episode and all future posts, or if you want our system to go through your back catalog to create videos for every episode on your feed.
After selecting a template, you'll be able to customize your template further before previewing your automation and starting to create videos!
2. You'll then be able to download/share your video, or select a new clip from your video.
To select a new clip from your video, click "Choose Another Clip From This Episode" on the Download page.
You'll then be able to select a different clip from your episode, either with the Automation wizards suggestions or manually, before exporting your video again.
