How to Create Viral Motivation Videos Using CHATGPT & CAPCUT

These popular motivational videos are loved by viewers! Many Instagram pages, YouTube channels, and TikTok pages are leveraging these types of videos to gain substantial followers.

I will show you the fastest and easiest way to create these short-form motivational videos using free AI tools in this article. Let’s start!

I came across various viral motivational videos on Instagram and TikTok. I noticed that these videos receive numerous views and likes from people across the world.

Sample Videos

Now, let’s watch a sample of these videos and see what they have in common. All of these videos are characterized by the following:

  • Strong AI Voice
  • Random, nice-looking footages
  • Dark & Mysterious Atmosphere

This Instagram page is creating the exact type of videos I just mentioned, and they have over 450,000 followers. Also, this TikTok Page is doing the same, and they get millions and millions of views. Let’s see how we can easily do the same with FREE AI TOOLS.

AI Voice Over

Let’s kick off the process with the Viral AI Voiceover. Navigate to “Eleven,” click on “Get Started Free,” and select the “speech synthesis” task under the “text to speech” category.

In the “settings” section, opt for the “Adam” voice, maintain the default voice settings, and choose “eleven multilingual V2.” The resulting AI-generated voice should resemble the following.


Now, it’s time to gather quotes for Eleven Labs to transform into a voiceover. Head over to ChatGPT and request, “Provide me with 10 quotes about success in life, hard work, and achieving goals in simple, easy-to-understand English.

” While the initial results are satisfactory, consider expanding each quote by asking ChatGPT to “add another part to each quote in simple, easy-to-understand English.” This will make the success quotes longer.

Personally, I like quote number 10, so I will ask ChatGPT one more time to “add another part to quote number 10 in simple, easy-to-understand English.

” Now that you have a comprehensive quote, proceed to Eleven Labs, copy the quote generated by ChatGPT, and paste it into the “Text” section. Click “Generate,” and you should obtain the following outcome.

Video Creation

Now that our voiceover is ready, the next step is to create the video. For this phase, we’ll utilize Capcut, an all-in-one video editor that’s not only free but also user-friendly, making it ideal for beginners.

Create a new project in Capcut and import the recently generated AI voiceover. Now, let’s examine a sample video to discern the type of footage commonly used by these pages.

I will replay the video without sound, and let’s categorize the featured footage:

  • Roads
  • Mountains
  • Nature scenes
  • Rain
  • Roads again

Feature Footage

Although these scenes may seem unrelated, their cinematic, dark, and mysterious atmosphere, coupled with the robust voiceover, captivates viewers’ attention. Now, let’s incorporate similar footage. Navigate to Pexels, where you can access royalty-free stock videos.

Search for cinematic videos, 4K nature footage, biking scenes, mountain climbs, and boxing videos. Additionally, boxing footage will add an extra layer of engagement to our video.

Download your preferred footage and import them into Capcut, add the voiceover to your timeline, then add the footage you downloaded from Pexels.


Now, onto the final step: “The music.” If you’re sharing these videos on Instagram or TikTok, you likely already possess the rights to use any music on both platforms, avoiding copyright strikes.

However, in this tutorial, I’ll opt for a free, non-copyrighted sound to steer clear of any potential copyright issues. To achieve this, I visited Pixabay and downloaded a royalty-free sound, which I then imported into CapCut. With all elements in place, let’s start the video editing process.

Video Editing

To begin, adjust the video ratio to “9:16,” perfect for Instagram Reels, YouTube Shorts, and TikTok videos. Click on each clip, increasing the scale to fit the entire screen. Ensure the video centres align with the screen centre.

Adjust all clips to match the voiceover’s length. Next, make the text visible on the screen. Navigate to “Text,” select “Auto Captions,” choose the “English” language, and click “Create” to automatically add text matching the voiceover.

Center the text in the video, select the “SUNDAY MASTHEAD” font, go to the animation section, choose “Captions,” and opt for “Bounce Out.” Increase text size for visibility. Next, select all text, navigate to the “Glow” section, increase the range to 100, and lower intensity to 35.

To create a dark and mysterious atmosphere, go to “Library,” choose a black background, add it to the timeline above the footage, right-click, and select edit.

Freeze, delete the first and last parts, leaving only the middle. Stretch it to cover all footage, increase size to fill the screen, and at the “Basic” section, adjust the opacity to around 60%.

Now, add the music, ensuring the drop coincides with the end of the voiceover. So, I will play the music I got from Pixabay to see where the drop is located and adjust it at the end of the voiceover.

Adjust the drop to align. Now we have that small part without music. To fill it, duplicate the music, add it to the start of the timeline, select the split tool, and cut it, then delete the remaining part. Make sure to adjust the music volume so that it is not very high.

For the final touch, insert aggressive boxing footage when the drop hits. Select the boxing clips, go to the speed section, and decrease the duration for a faster clip.

The transition between boxing clips using CapCut’s transitions. And you should now have something resembling this.
