Creators will soon be able to generate a video simply by typing text, thanks to a new Generative AI tool from Runway.
The text-to-video feature, dubbed Gen 2, can realize “entire worlds, animations, stories, anything you can imagine,” according to a video created by prompts that released by the firm on Monday.
For instance, the user can type in a prompt, stating, “Aerial drone footage of a mountain range.”
Gen 1 is a recently introduced tool that lets users create videos out of existing ones. In addition, the company offers Stable Diffusion, a text-to-image model.
The company says it can support several modes, including text + image to video, image to video.
Gen 2 is expected to be available in the near future. According to Reuters, it will be offered on Discord via a waitlist on the Runway website.
Founded in 2018, the company raised $50 million in Series C funding last December.
