BEA: Deep Learning Applications for the Production of Animation

Benjamin Mitchley Transformed Contemporary Art Original Art

There’s a potential for AI to accelerate beyond what we might be comfortable with, so I do have some trepidation and am maybe not gung-ho about all aspects of it. You see it in its infancy now and it doesn’t take much to imagine its future potential. A lot of what we do is incredibly mundane and trivial, so why waste our time, our lives, on that?

For example, after looking at thousands of pictures of a dumbbell, the program would understand a dumbbell to be a metallic cylinder with two large spheres at both ends. However, as we found out last month, when the program is used to “dream up” these images of its own, it can get things very wrong. What it creates are uncanny scenes of long-legged slug-monsters, wobbly towers, and flying limbs that look like a Salvador Dalí painting on steroids. Nothing, Forever, also known as AI-Generated Seinfeld, refers to a constant livestream on the Twitch channel watchmeforever that is generated by based on the ’90s sitcom Seinfeld. The AI-generative content is provided through OpenAI’s GPT-3, which has machine learning and AI algorithms designed to produce cohesive chat logs.

Is it too late to start a career in visual effects?

AI allows us to do more working within the constraints we already have, by lowering the thresholds to solve what used to be impossible problems. Part of the reason I got into VFX was to solve these sorts of problems and help the production designer realize their vision. AI could greatly help with communication between the production designer, art department and visual effects team and contribute to creating a unified vision across a large department. Within the creative industries (and beyond), the ethical questions surrounding artificial intelligence are stacking up alongside technology’s rapid and unchecked incline, and creatives have begun asking how AI will impact artists.

This new technology is revolutionizing animation production for video games. Experiment 1 showed that subjective experiences induced by the Hallucination Machine displayed many similarities to characteristics of the psychedelic state. Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool that is changing the way we create and experience art. One example of this is Google’s DeepDream algorithm, which uses machine learning to generate surreal and abstract images.

In the beginning, when everything is potential and there are a lot of creative exchanges between collaborators, AI images can be used to visually communicate different directions and move pre-production conversations along quicker. A lot of the concept designs coming out of Hollywood are feeling very similar these days, because the artists are all sort of working from the same playbook. Since they needed to produce imagery so fast, they create tool sets and processes to accelerate the work, but that also lends itself to that sameness. A lot of artists come up with a specific style when they’re young, and then continue creating more work in that style for decades.

Like many AI art generator programs do, though with less precision and on a much larger scale than Winklemann’s, the sculpture uses an NFT program to generate constantly changing images that it projects on its four walls, letting viewers watch as the work evolves over time. With regards to production design from a practical standpoint, I think it could be really helpful. AI can aid the designer in quickly producing images during the early collaborative creative decision-making process. With apps like Midjourney or DALL-E, designers can show directors a space in a certain style, with certain lighting, which can serve as a good jumping-off point.

This allows animators, especially those with limited experience in rigging, to focus more on the creative aspects of their projects. This tool also proves invaluable in post-production, enabling unique effects and stylistic consistency in video editing. EbSynth is a versatile tool that significantly broadens the creative opportunities for animators. This AI tool breathes life into static images, turning them into animated sequences. With EbSynth, you can take a hand-drawn sketch or painting and animate it, adding a new layer of depth to your artwork.
