Powder, an AI-driven clipping software, is set to redefine gaming highlights by introducing advanced features for creators. Among its upcoming innovations, the platform will soon detect shout-outs during intense gaming sessions, allowing for enhanced montage creation. Additionally, it's developing speech-to-text functionality, providing stream transcripts for efficient keyword searches.
Boasting over 40 proprietary game-specific AI models, Powder includes audio analysis, laughter detection, and dedicated models for popular titles such as Fortnite, Valorant, Apex Legends, and more, with plans to introduce a model for Counter-Strike 2.
The AI models scan streams from various platforms, identifying spikes in gaming activities like victories, assists, kills, and significant in-game moments. Powder transforms these highlights into short, engaging montages, facilitating easy sharing on social media.
A new AI tool, akin to laughter recognition, will soon identify voice fluctuations, enabling creators to curate clips capturing their intense reactions during gameplay. Expected to launch in mid-December, this feature aims to encapsulate the emotional spectrum of gaming experiences beyond mere gameplay.
Barthélémy Kiss, Powder's co-founder and CEO, emphasizes the importance of capturing the emotional essence within gaming. He notes, "It's about capturing both skill-based and emotionally charged moments, making gaming content creation truly unique."
Powder's forthcoming speech-to-text technology, slated for release next month, empowers creators with transcripts and quick keyword searches within streams. Integrated with gamer-specific lingo, the tool aims for precise and accurate results.
An upcoming update to the "Community Hype" feature leverages AI to detect chat spikes, recommending moments when the community fervently engages. This enhancement allows for a collaborative perspective on what constitutes a stream's highlight.
Powder's innovations seek to streamline content creation, saving creators considerable time. According to their survey, creators spend an average of 53 hours a month seeking and editing highlights, whereas Powder claims to save upwards of 10 hours per week, optimizing content creation.
Founded in 2018 in France by Barthélémy Kiss, Yannis Mangematin, and Christian Navelot, Powder has raised $22 million to date, signaling its commitment to revolutionizing gaming content creation.
