Midjourney to debut AI video this month
AI generation company Midjourney will be able to generate videos by the end of this month, according to new reports.
According to Decrypt, Midjourney will begin 'training' its video model in January 2024, with its “text to video” model set to be released in a few months.
The move is not a complete surprise, as a number of AI platforms have already launched AI video capabilities. Stable Diffusion, for example, is working on an AI video generator, Meta just showcased its EMU video generator, and Adobe has introduced generative AI to video with its Premiere Pro and After Effects software.
The update comes following Midjourney's recent v6 update, boasting improved prompt following and more realistic images.
Whether 2024 is the year where AI-generated video hits the mainstream remains to be seen, but it's an interesting space to follow, especially as it raises challenging questions about authenticity and how reality is perceived.
