Runway, a leading generative AI video platform, announced several major updates today giving artists more precision and expressive capabilities when using its platform. The new releases include Motion Brush, Gen-2 Style Presets, enhanced camera controls, and an improved image generation model. Creators are bound to appreciate the enhanced control, fidelity, and expressiveness that the new updates bring.
First, the new Motion Brush allows users to "paint" motion onto their AI generations with exacting directional control. Creators can choose an area, define a direction, and adjust intensity to add movement with intention. This milestone release enables artists to guide generative models in unprecedented ways.
Gen-2 Style Presets
Complementing Motion Brush, the new Gen-2 Style Presets provide curated aesthetics to apply to projects without complex prompting. From glossy animations to retro film looks, these presets expand creative possibilities.
Director Mode Update
Upgrades to the advanced camera controls in Director Mode give a higher degree of nuance when framing shots and camera moves. More granular increments allow subtle tweaks for greater precision.
Improved Image Model
Runway also updated its image generation model to provide more photorealism, consistency, and higher resolution. This aligns with its new Image to Video workflow.
These updates collectively represent a major milestone in Runway's mission to democratize creative expression. By offering AI-powered tools that combine ease of use with advanced capabilities, the company is paving the way for a new generation of storytellers and artists.
