Viggle AI Animation Generator

An experiment with a new animation generator, Viggle. You upload a photo and you have the choice to animate it or you can also add a video along with the photo. I uploaded a photo along with a dance video and Viggle used the motion in the dance video to animate the photo. Then used a video editor to remove the background from the Viggle video and replace it with a new background and add the audio. Creator: Dari

Photography vs AI Creation

“AI presented me with unparalleled freedom, a realm unbound by the traditional constraints of budget, personnel, or geography. It was here, within the limitless expanse of artificial intelligence, that I discovered a new avenue for my creativity, allowing me to redefine the essence of my artistic expression.”

Midjourney’s New Website

“Midjourney has launched the alpha version of its own standalone website, with access open to existing users who have generated more than 10,000 images. A switch to a different platform might not sound like a big deal. After all, rivals like OpenAI’s DALL-E and Adobe’s Firefly and most recently Meta’s Imagine already work on dedicated sites. But the move makes one of the most impressive AI image generators in terms of results significantly easier to use, improving its UI and UX and making it possible to add more new features not possible within the limitations of the Discord platform.”

I have experimented extensively, generating over 10,000 images (deleted about 70%) on Midjourney so I am fortunate to have access to the beautiful alpha version of the new website. I still like Discord though because the new alpha website doesn’t have a delete feature yet. : )

The Absent Moon

Music and voice by Suno.ai Suno.ai limits song generations to 1:20 min

Was the moon absent? Beautiful!
The sun that hid it, was darkness disguised as Earth’s delight
The moon was not absent, it lurked in the shadow

Of the sun’s light rays, a secret we’ve come to know
The moon was life for Earth, and sea preserving gnomes

Was the moon absent? Beautiful!
The sun that hid it, was darkness disguised as Earth’s delight
The moon was not absent, it lurked in the shadow oooooooh oooooh
