  • AI will shape up the workflow of the future. Here's a simple implementation of NVidia's StyleGAN inside Blender! | 2021-09-13
    StyleGAN2-ADA is a neural network good at learning styles from images, you can give it a dataset and 'learn' its style into a file (a trained model). In this example, I load a model and given a random seed, generate a random texture which is applied to the object's material.
  • How do you generate those latent walk animations?
    I understand the concept you're describing, but I'm unsure how to implement it in practice. The documentation on Stylegan2's GitHub page doesn't mention anything on it I can see.
    You have to modify the code, it's line 60 in
  • [D] Do I need to apply spectral norm to my embedding matrix when training a conditional W-GAN?
  • Can I train a model on 100 images of homes and have it draw a couple "average" homes?

    no i dont.. but as for training - i just use default tf stylegan2-ada repo ( )

  • I have been making art with deep neural networks lately, and at some point one of them started outputting these cosmic creatures, so I thought I'd share. | 2021-04-21
    This image looks awesome! And this process sounds really interesting, any more specific tips on where to get started? I studied Neuroscience, use Linux and Python for data analysis, but haven't done any image editing yet. I found the code but it seems like I need a GPU. Which I don't have, unless I use the servers at my university lol

  • These are the best computer graphics as of right now. What do you think they will be like in 20 years?
    In the next decade, pixel density, frame rate, and our ability to model visual input will reach visual acuity, at which point we will not be able to differentiate between reality, a movie, and computer generated. This will include people; you just need to go to to see a 'person' in resolution that is pretty close, and that's already several years old.

    Characters for the modern world should be the easiest! Especially now since not only are there name generators online, but functions like "This person does not exist" which are photorealistic AI-generated people. If that's not enough to start with, I don't know what to tell you hehe.
