You’ve probably heard about the amazing results achieved by text-to-image AI like Dall-E, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney. As you might have expected, the revolution is moving ahead, with the next target being text-to-video AI tools.
Google and Meta have teased their text-to-video capabilities in research reports from their AI labs, but this advanced technology hasn’t been available to the public. If you’ve been eagerly waiting to create entire videos with a simple AI prompt, now is your chance, thanks QuickVid.
Before your expectations get too high, it’s important to realize that this is not the same as generating thousands of stable diffusion still images and assembling them into a video, or having access to the world’s most advanced AI systems for true video generation. This is a very early entry point in the race for a text-to-video solution.
The first step in the process for the AI is to generate a script based on your command prompt. I tested the system by creating a YouTube short film from these words: “A video of a DJI drone flying over an astronaut on Mars, ending with a reaction shot of the surprised astronaut.”
The AI wrote a full 79-word narration at my prompt, then synthesized the speech with a choice of male or female voice. TechCrunch pointed out that the background video chosen for the generated video was from an inventory library and there appeared to be ample footage of “astronauts on Mars”.
As a questionable finishing touch, QuickVid overlays the script as a title and adds thumbnail images generated by the Dall-E API. The resulting YouTube short film shown above is…interesting. Maybe it would handle more earthly videos better.
In a TechCrunch interview, QuickVid’s developer said improvements are coming, with more personalization options coming in January. Finally, QuickVid will also include captions and support avatars.
Many more text-to-video solutions could hit the market over the next year, along with other visual wonders like AR glasses and more advanced VR headsets. It should be exciting.
