Powder Partners With Razer Cortex To Bring AI-Powered Video Editing to the Razer Cortex Add-ons Marketplace

The Razer Cortex Add-ons storefront, one of the most popular optimisation tools for Windows-powered PCs now offers users a world-class, AI-powered video editing suite: Powder.

PARIS, FRANCE: 7 MAY 2024Powder - the AI-driven platform that enables game content creators, enterprises, and brands to transform their streams into engaging social media-ready clips (“Ctrl+F for Video”) - has partnered with Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers, to bring its product to the Razer Cortex Add-ons storefront. With Powder’s suite of AI video editing tools, Razer Cortex users can now expedite and improve how they translate long-form content to short-form clips.

Powder’s AI-powered and emotionally-reactive clipping tool is designed specifically for gaming, identifying and highlighting essential moments from gaming streams, responding to laughter, or a raised voice. Powder offers both game-agnostic and game-specific AI, each trained on over 500 hours of gameplay. Game-specific AI tools are trained to automatically detect highlight moments from 30+ of the world’s most popular games, such as a ‘Victory Royale’ in Fortnite, or a kill in Rocket League. Game-agnostic AI is compatible with any game, trained to detect streamers’ emotions, vocal fluctuations, and spikes in chat activity to create highlights.

Razer Cortex is already used by millions of gamers to boost PC performance when gaming. The new Cortex Add-ons feature is designed to connect gamers with essential tools to amp-up their gaming even more. Directly within the Razer Cortex PC app, Add-Ons offers a marketplace for PC game add-ons, tailored to enhance your gaming sessions and help you stay ahead of the competition.

Powder’s own study of over 3,200 streamers found that they spend on average 53 hours a month - 630 hours a year - identifying clips, editing, and posting them - more time than they do actually streaming. With roughly 60% of creators experiencing burnout at some point in their career, Powder is offering Razer Cortex’s gamers, creators and streamers a solution to these time-intensive processes - and a faster, easier way to build their audience - giving them more time to create.

Barthélémy Kiss, CEO & Co-Founder at Powder, commented: “By saving streamers hundreds of hours a year, and allowing them to spend more time streaming - we’re happy to play our part in unleashing the creativity of Razer Cortex users. By partnering with Razer to offer Powder on the Cortex storefront, we're thrilled that Powder’s video editing tools will now reach and empower more streamers worldwide, particularly those who may need these capabilities the most.”
