Transcript

The following is a transcript from a YouTube video:

The videos you’re looking at were all created with an AI software called Warp Fusion, and here is how it works. You give Warp Fusion a regular video, tweak some settings, tell it what you’re going for, and just like that, it spits out a stylized output.

Of course, it’s a bit more complex than that. That’s why in this tutorial, I will show you how to use Warp Fusion to stylize your own videos. I will share with you the key settings you need to change as well as some tips and tricks to get really good results.

And even though these videos look different, the main steps are pretty much the same. Before we dive in, I wanted to mention that Warp Fusion is a paid product, and I will leave a link below. And because it’s still in beta, some settings may change, and before deciding which version works best for you, make sure you carefully read the update logs. In this video, we will be using the 0.14 version, and I will leave a link to it down below.

When you get there, click on this attached file to download the notebook and navigate to Google Colab. To run Stable Warp Fusion, select File and choose Upload Notebook and then select the file that you just downloaded.

We’re gonna go over the settings in just a bit, but first, it’s important to note that you can run Warp Fusion locally with your own hardware. It’s a simpler option, and I’ve included a complete guide below. It’s recommended to have an NVIDIA GPU with at least 16GB of VRAM. You can check yours by opening the run command, open dxdiag, navigate to your display tab, and as you can see here I have 8GB, and I know that this is not enough because I tried and keep getting out of memory errors, and that’s why I think it’s better for me to go with the online method instead.

Let’s save the document to our Google Drive; we can create a copy and give it a new name, then just click here and select Connect to a Hosted Runtime. And by the way, if you’re willing to put a little more money into this online option instead of upgrading your computer, you might want to consider getting a Pro Membership; that way, you’ll have access to more resources.

To transform a video, click here to upload it. Keep in mind that the quality of your outputs will depend heavily on the video you choose. Make sure the main subject is sharp and is clearly separated from the background. I recommend that you avoid videos with high motion blur. On top of that, videos with movement, patterns, and textures will result in generating more interesting elements in your animation, so keep that in mind. Both vertical and landscape videos should work just fine as input. I found a pretty good stock video that I would like to use for this tutorial, and I will link it down below.

We will also use an AI model to determine the look and style of our outputs. A very helpful blog post on StableCog can teach you more about the best diffusion models, so be sure to check it out. For this project, I will use a model called DreamShaper, which you can download through the link below. I have already created a folder on my Google Drive, which I called AI Models, where I have uploaded DreamShaper along with some of my other favorite models. You can follow the same steps, and later I will show you how to load a model into WarpFusion.

Now, let’s continue setting up the notebook. Under settings, you can change the batch name, look for the animation dimensions just below, and make sure that the aspect ratio matches that of your original video. For example, my video was 1080×1920, but I will use 720×1280. It has the same ratio but a smaller resolution, which will greatly reduce the processing time.

Scroll down to video input settings. Here you need to specify where your video is located, so right-click on your original footage, select copy path, and then paste it inside the video input path input.

Right below that, you can change extract nth frame to 2 to make the AI process every other frame. This will create a jittery animation look, but it will also cut processing time in half. However, I want to keep my output smooth, so I will stick with 1.

For video masking, enable the extract background mask. This will allow you to choose whether to keep or remove the stylized look from the background later on.

Before we continue, I would like to say thank you to today’s sponsor, Skillshare, for supporting this video. Skillshare offers thousands of classes for creative individuals, covering a wide range of topics such as AI, photography, and freelancing. I personally became so interested in Skillshare because of its career-focused classes.

As a full-time YouTuber, I need to stay on top of my productivity, time management, and personal branding game to keep up with a fast-paced industry. I took Ali Abdel’s Productivity Masterclass, Principles and Tools to Boost Your Productivity. Drawing from his experience running multiple businesses, Ali’s tips are valuable for professionals and students.

He also shares book recommendations and thought experiments to help establish good habits. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to increase productivity.

If you’re working towards a big goal, like starting your freelance career or breaking into a new industry, it can be intimidating to figure out where to begin. However, starting small can take some of the pressure off, and Skillshare teachers can walk you through all the steps you need to hit those goals of yours.

I’m so interested in watching more videos on Skillshare and have already added several courses to my watchlist. I really think that Skillshare is the best place to dive into new topics and expand your knowledge, and if you use the link below, you can explore their entire library for free for a whole month.
