Magic video editing website debuts

John Moe Sep 20, 2011

Magisto is a new web service that promises to take your raw unedited video and turn it into well edited video that everyone will want to watch and share. How do they do that?

According to Mashable:

The startup is keeping mum on its secret sauce, but does say that its proprietary technology is designed to automatically find the best footage in your videos. The technology is said to recognize faces, understand the difference between people, objects, pets and landscapes, and even capture the intent of the filmmaker.

Maybe they use genies. I bet it’s genies. Prolly genies.

Early reviews are actually pretty positive although the product may fall short of what a cinephile would prefer. But for a robot, it’s practically Scorsese. Now I keep imagining a Robot Scorsese.
