App publisher Lightricks – makers of Facetune and Videoleap – launched a new app, Beatleap, in collaboration with music-tech company Epidemic Sound. Beatleap presents audio-driven video editing by automatically matching songs with clips in seconds. Utilizing machine learning, the app determines the exact moment to slow down or speed up a user’s video to align with the beat of the music.

Fueled by artificial intelligence, Beatleap seeks to simplify the traditional video-editing process while offering powerful capabilities exceeding what is possible with existing template-based apps and editors, the company says.

Beatleap features include:

  • 20 editing tools and effects

  • 50 filters

  • More than 1,000 professional songs to synchronize with video

  • Automatic trimming, cutting, and mixing of clips according to the beat of a selected track

  • Automatically place video effects

With Lightricks’ developers, research, and product teams constantly identifying new ways of utilizing AI to help people realize their visual storytelling potential, Beatleap elevates the standard of what anyone can create in a matter of moments.

“During the global shelter-in-place, we have seen people using our apps more than ever before, including Beatleap’s sister app, Videoleap, which has seen a 165% increase in usage and 12.5 million downloads since March alone,” said Zeev Farbman, Co-Founder and CEO of Lightricks. “We have never come across an audio-first video editor and wanted to expand on the capabilities of the features that our content creators use most, to give anyone the ability to quickly and easily turn everyday moments into memories with a soundtrack from Epidemic Sound. We are using advanced technology to deliver a completely new and distinctive experience for video editors worldwide and are confident that Beatleap can empower our users to fuel their creative expression.”

The Beatleap app is currently available for iOS devices and can be downloaded for free in the App Store across all countries. In-app purchase subscriptions unleash access to premium Pro features.
