Stability AI, the start-up company behind Stable Diffusion, unveiled a new tool last week that will allow users to generate animations using only a text prompt.
The open-source AI company said the new tool, Stable Animation SDK, is designed for artists and developers to implement the most advanced Stable Diffusion models "to generation stunning animations."
The company says animations can be created in one of three ways: writing prompts without images, or using a source image or using a source video.
In other words, a user can create a 3D animation of a dragon or a sunset by typing in just a few keywords. Users can change certain attributes or parameters such as the animations' color, shape, size and texture.
Artists can use all the Stable Diffusion models, including Stable Diffusion 2.0 and Stable Diffusion XL to generate animations.
"Our mission is to build the foundation to activate humanity’s potential," Stability AI CEO Emad Mostaque said in a statement. "With the Stable Animation SDK, we are giving users a new way to unleash their creativity and imagination using generative AI. We are excited to see what amazing things people will create with this tool."
Users wanting to test this new tool must execute a few additional technical steps, unlike DALL-E or Bing Image Creator.
