Redefining Content Creation with a Wave of AI Brilliance

In the vast tapestry of generative AI, Runway emerges as a virtuoso, effortlessly weaving audio, images, videos, and 3D structures with a mere whisper of a prompt. The latest jewel in its crown, Runway Gen-2, takes the stage, offering a plethora of possibilities for content creators. The magic happens as this multimodal AI powerhouse converts static images, even those from models like Midjourney, into dynamic videos using the Runway Motion Brush.

Creativity on the Go with Runway’s iOS App

Adding a sprinkle of convenience to the magic mix is Runway’s iOS app, allowing users to conjure multimedia content right from their smartphones. With the power of Gen-2 in your pocket, crafting videos becomes as easy as a few taps and swipes.

For the curious minds diving into this magical world, Runway Gen-2 offers a taste of its prowess for free. Free account holders can whip up four-second videos, ready to dazzle on any platform, albeit with a modest watermark. Each second of video generation consumes five credits, and the benevolent sorcerers at Runway bestow 500 credits upon their free users. For those yearning for an extra dash of magic, a subscription plan beckons at a mere $12 per month, unlocking a realm of customization options for the enchanted output.

From Static to Dynamic

Stability AI steps into the spotlight with its creation — the Stable Video Diffusion. This cutting-edge AI research tool is a master of transformation, turning stagnant images into dynamic short videos. A preview of two AI models, “SVD” and “SVD-XT,” takes center stage, producing video synthesis at 14 and 25 frames, respectively.

The Two: SVD and SVD-XT

Stability AI’s journey began with Stable Diffusion, an open-weights image synthesis model that garnered attention and sparked a community of enthusiasts. Now, Stability aims to replicate this success in the AI video synthesis. The duet of models, “SVD” and “SVD-XT,” dance through the pixels, generating short MP4 video clips at 576×1024 resolution, a mesmerizing spectacle lasting 2-4 seconds.


The Early Stages

Stability AI, the maestro behind this AI symphony, humbly declares that the model is still in its early stages, a creation meant for the halls of research rather than the bustling avenues of the commercial world. As they actively fine-tune their creations, seeking insights on safety and quality, Stability beckons the community to partake in this symphonic journey, with every note of feedback playing a pivotal role in refining the model for future releases.
