Riverside Introduces Magic Clips

Riverside, a leading high-res content creation solution, has released a new feature offering users an effortless way to generate short-form clips from long-form content.

This new tool, Magic Clips, handles the clipping process from start to finish at the click of a button. With just a few more clicks, users can format these clips for different social platforms, add captions, customize them, and create more clips as they please.

If there was a time when viewers were willing to commit to an entire podcast or show without a first taste, that time is gone. Nowadays, the journey into new viewers’ playlists and watchlists starts with their social media feeds, where quick, vibrant, and easily digestible content is the name of the game.

And it doesn’t stop at capturing the audience’s attention. Our digital world is overflowing with countless podcasts, shows, and long-form content vying for viewership. You’ll need to continuously engage with your audience, or someone else will snatch them.

What all this means for curators is more work cut out for them (pun intended.)

Social clips? There’s AI for that.

That’s where Magic Clips steps in. This practical feature, powered by the most recent AI advancements, provides a hassle-free solution to transform lengthy recordings into captivating short clips. With a single click, AI identifies key moments in your recording and edits them as standalone clips, perfectly optimized for various social media platforms.

Effortless by automation

With Magic Clips, there’s now need to sift through recordings in search of compelling moments. Magic Clips handles the heavy lifting for you. Leveraging cutting-edge AI technology, the process becomes completely automated, picking out your best moments and editing them.


Magic Clips replaces hours of work with a single click. Not only that, but your clips will be ready chop-chop (pun intended, again). So, by the end of it, you’re all set to share your clips a lot quicker. Plus, you’re left with more time to focus on engaging with your audience and producing more creative endeavors.


By supporting multiple sizes and layouts to choose from, your clips can be tailored to platforms like Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and more. Click again to add captions, making your clips accessible to different audience needs and suited for various circumstances where audio can’t be played.

You’re in control

While Magic Clips takes care of the initial clip generation, creators retain complete control over the final product. Using an intuitive interface, you can add your personal touch, brand them, and make any necessary adjustments as you see fit. Of course, you can also create more clips.

How it works


Wait for your guests to arrive (or not if your doing it solo), then hit the record button to start capturing and uploading your long-form studio-quality recording.


When you finish recording, enter the editor and click on the Magic Clips button (you can’t miss it). Now, sit back and watch the magic happen.


Because Riverside transcribes all your recording by default, all you got to do is click to add them as captions to your clips and make them accessible and watchable by anyone, no matter when or where.


Re-trim your clips as you see fit, select the right layout and size based on where you want to share them, change backgrounds, and finish off your clips.


Download your work (you can select different file formats, yeah) and post it.

Get the most out of your content

With the introduction of Magic Clips, creators can quickly repurpose highlights from their content and share it with their audience on any platform. With the help of AI, Magic Clip automatically captures the very essence of long-form recordings and turns them into short clips that leave a lasting impression on audiences across social media. Embrace the possibilities, engage you followers, and elevate your content.


Riverside.FM Announces Media Board to Help Creators Reduce Editing Time, the audio-video recording software for podcasters, just launched an innovative feature called the “Media Board”. It works as a virtual sound AND video board, allowing creators to insert pre-recorded content straight into the live recording session.

“Adding a soundboard to the online recording studio has been one of the most requested features among our creators,” said Co-founder and CEO Nadav Keyson. “Bringing not only the requested soundboard to play audio clips, but adding the video element to it was an intuitive step for us to use as a company.”

Since the beginning, Riverside has been built as a flexible solution for creators, no matter their preference for audio-only or audio-visual content. Co-founder and CTO Gideon Keyson adds: “We’re always looking for ways to make Riverside more powerful while simplifying the workflow of creators.”

Rather than having to add intros, outs, ad reads, and other clips in post-production, the Media Board enables creators to play these during the live interview. This so-called live editing reduces the time spent in post-production while also allowing for a more interactive experience.

Even better, all audio and video clips are recorded locally and provided to the user as separate tracks, perfectly in sync with the host and guests’ regular audio/video tracks.
