Creating Stable Diffusion Videos with SD Deforum and Visions of Chaos Animation

Animating Stable Diffusion txt2img Outputs with Deforum and Vision of Chaos If the newness and wow factor of A.I. image generators and Stable Diffusion has worn off for you, deforum animations may be just what you need – While we may not yet be at the point we can scare audiences like the Lumières did with their train video and are probably more in the Magic Lantern stage of development, I had a ton of fun generating the animations for this article....

Fine Tuning Stable Diffusion Images with Cross Attention Control

Image Refinement with Cross Attention Control If you’ve been keeping up with the latest Stable Diffusion forks, you may have seen prompt editing get merged to the master branch of the Automatic111 repo a few days ago. There’s not a lot of information on how to use this other than a comment in the commit. I believe the repo this originated from is Cross Attention Control.

A Developer Blog for Lazy Developers

A New Easier Way I’ve had several blogs and websites over the years.

Stable Diffusion - Better Grids and Bulk Scripts

If you want to skip straight to scripts, click here! Stable Diffusion Release! We knew the world would not be the same – A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. And just like that, the whole world changes. Stable Diffusion and its openness is a massive improvement to the tools we’ve been using in this space and our ability to modify/understand them. It was bound to happen, but I am very impressed with both how quickly it rolled out and how powerful the tool is....
