Magisto edits videos automagically, deluges the interwebs with idiot auteur savancy — Engadget

Oh, the plague of social media and its irrational empowerment of at-home, amateur media moguls. Well, truth be told, not everyone has the tenacity to sit and slog through hours of footage to create a skillfully made, ready-for-prime time upload. Not to worry you talentless hacks, Magistos got a web-based tool thatll automate your lack of video editing expertise, and churn out YouTube-worthy, ADD-style clips replete with background music and fancy multi-window effects. The service, which makes use of an algorithm to recognize “people, pets and landscapes and can even…[analyze] sounds and images,” had formerly been available in a private beta, but is now open and free to anyone with a camera, a computer and a decent internet connection. Weve seen the results of the companys handiwork and its all pretty much the same thing — an incoherent, tune-laden mashup. Which is to say, ideal for the Twitter and Facebook IV drips weve come to subsist upon. Go ahead and test the hyper-editing software out at the source below — its not like you actually have to do anything, anyway. Just click.
