Making videos with Rephrase
Rephrase's website does not provide a lot of information about the Rephrase Studio Platform or its features. Based on their promo video, the video editor is quite limited, with no options to add animations, transitions, screen recordings, or change aspect ratios.
The video rendering time could not be measured for Rephrase, as it is impossible to get access to the Studio Platform without talking to sales.
Making videos with Synthesia
Synthesia STUDIO, in turn, offers a lot of features that any modern video editor includes: a screen recorder, animations, transitions, PPT uploads.
Here's a brief overview of Synthesia STUDIO:
Want to add multimedia?
Due to the lack of information or access to Rephrase's Studio Platform, it's unclear whether or not it features stock media, and how extensive the potential media library is.
In contrast, Synthesia offers a full range of media options: images, videos, music, stickers, GIFs, and option to upload your own media.

Rephrase’s security & ethics
As of March 2023, Rephrase does not seem to moderate the content produced on the platform, which can lead to harmful uses of the technology, such as misinformation, disinformation, harassment, and more.
With regards to the security of the platform itself, Rephrase does not offer Single Sign-On (SSO) and does not seem to be SOC compliant. Both factors can stand in the way of big enterprises using the software.
Synthesia’s security & ethics
In contrast, Synthesia has a strict content moderation policy (automated & manual), as well as SSO. The platform recently became SOC 2 Type I certified, with Type II certification expected by April 2023.

Better video editing features
No need to use switch between tools to create a video. Synthesia has all the built-in tools a modern video creator may need.
Superior AI avatar quality
Better lip sync, more natural movements, diverse selection, no eerie uncanny valley feelings.
We might be biased, but our customers aren't. See what they have to say.
Having a presenter who can instantly say what you want to say (and in the way you want to say it) is invaluable. A remarkable new authoring tool, without a doubt.
Synthesia removes the skill and cost barriers in terms of voice acting and videography that's usually required to create talking-head training videos.
The user interface is intuitive, and it's easy to produce video content quickly. Also super easy to edit, change elements, and manipulate the script.
I don't need to record my videos to get a better effect on the video. I can shoot videos in multiple languages in minutes with an avatar.
It raises our content to the next level, helping us gain interest and engagement in our services. The speed of production and the fact that it only takes one person is a great cost reduction.
When creating courses with audio, if the narrator leaves the organization, we don't have to settle for two different voices or search for a similar voice. We can easily recreate all voiceovers with Synthesia.
What I don't like about Synthesia is when we use bullet points. The manual process of finding the timing to sync the screen text appearance with the avatar's speech is time consuming.
What I do not like so much is the editing of the avatar's pauses. In the area where you insert the text, there should be a menu bar that allows you to click on it and insert pauses or gestures.
The product is still in development, and as a user, I sometimes need to use creative workarounds. However, I do appreciate that I feel like Synthesia approaches this by making our company's needs part of further product developments.
