How do you convert a document into a video?
Converting a text file, whether it's in a .docx or .pdf format, can be done either through a PDF converter or video creation software.
Often online PDF converters aren't very reliable - the quality is subpar, and it's difficult to control the conversion. You don't really know what you're gonna get until the conversion is complete.
The option of using an online video maker like Synthesia offers a lot more flexibility by allowing you to simply paste the content of your PDF files into the tool. In turn, Synthesia will generate a talking AI video narrating your text.
And the best part? You have full control over the process - you choose video formats, images, and other elements to add to the video, and you can change the script and video file whenever you need to.
Can PDF convert to MP4?
Technically yes, you can convert PDF to MP4, usually using an online converter. The end version you get after the conversion is basically a slideshow, often of bad quality.
We highly recommend you to take a few more minutes to create an actual video using an online video maker. You can use your PDF text as a script, and the end result will be a much more engaging video with AI presenters and a voiceover.
