hey my name is John Draper and I'm an

play00:16

animator Studio owner and founder of AI

play00:18

animation.com a new site we've developed

play00:20

to try and showcase creatives using AI

play00:23

animation to create high quality

play00:25

professional animation it's early days

play00:27

there but uh please head over there and

play00:29

if you're interested sign up for free in

play00:31

this tutorial I'm going to share a

play00:33

workflow to bring AI generated images

play00:36

from sites like mid-journey stable

play00:38

diffusion leonardo.ai Dali whatever your

play00:41

chosen platform is and show how you can

play00:44

take that image and through various AI

play00:46

tools and some traditional digital

play00:47

animation techniques bring them to life

play00:50

adding some subtle 3D depth and animated

play00:52

head rig and then adding a few extra

play00:54

touches to really bring the environment

play00:56

to life the AI robots are coming but

play00:59

it's all going to be A-Okay because we

play01:01

can go to the beach

play01:02

there are some selected compromises

play01:04

we've taken with our workflow to be able

play01:06

to achieve really efficient production

play01:08

with a nice quality of output but there

play01:11

are some limitations for example we

play01:13

can't animate hands and arms or have the

play01:15

character walking around easily but as

play01:18

these AI tools mature over time and

play01:21

there's things like Wonder Studio from

play01:22

window Dynamics where you can use filmed

play01:25

footage of yourself or an actor and have

play01:27

it turned into a CGI character as well

play01:29

as export that mocap data or the 3D

play01:31

character so you can potentially combine

play01:33

that with some of our approach here to

play01:35

place your 3D characters into a scene

play01:37

from mid-journey or whatever AI tool

play01:40

you're using so with that in mind as we

play01:42

continue to evolve and test out

play01:44

different processes tools and workflows

play01:46

please if interested press subscribe

play01:49

um as we share more and more videos on

play01:51

our new YouTube channel

play01:52

oh and if it wasn't clear we're going to

play01:54

be making a video like that one

play01:56

here we go so to start with we're going

play01:58

to make a character and the scene using

play02:01

mids journey and if you're not familiar

play02:03

with it um if you head over to the

play02:04

mid-journey website

play02:06

um follow a link and it will send you

play02:07

over to Discord

play02:09

um as it's run on a Discord server so

play02:10

you actually have a conversation with

play02:11

the bot so press forward slash and write

play02:14

imagine press enter and then you write

play02:16

out your text problems I've got one here

play02:18

already made so

play02:20

um one realistic smiling but tired

play02:21

looking 3D cartoon CGI geeky child with

play02:24

oversized glasses staring directly into

play02:26

the camera standing Center of room next

play02:28

to desk in 70s Galactic spaceship

play02:30

interior messy artist bedroom neon

play02:33

lighting there's various prompts that

play02:35

you can use when chatting with

play02:36

mid-journey to get certain outcomes so

play02:38

here you put dash dash AR space 16 9 and

play02:41

that will help create a 16x9 image

play02:44

rather than a square so let's press

play02:46

enter and see what it churns out

play02:51

Okay so we've got some results here just

play02:53

make that full screen

play02:54

um so they're nice they're pretty cool I

play02:56

think we're going to try out uh the one

play02:57

here which is quite realistic less uh

play02:59

less Pixar and slightly more photo real

play03:03

so we're gonna jump out of there and

play03:05

we're gonna press U1 which will upscale

play03:07

number one and then we're going to press

play03:09

zoom out which is going to zoom the

play03:12

camera out and show us more of the scene

play03:16

okay so it's generated four images for

play03:18

us there and we can choose which of the

play03:20

four we prefer

play03:21

quite like this one with almost a sort

play03:23

of a sound mixer desk I think we're

play03:25

gonna go with that one

play03:27

so it's upscale number two

play03:30

there we go and press web and then press

play03:32

save to download the image to your

play03:33

computer now I've opened up the close-up

play03:36

image of our character on our scene from

play03:37

mid-journey in Photoshop and this is the

play03:39

new version of Photoshop currently in

play03:41

beta or beta

play03:43

um and we're going to use the Firefly

play03:44

powered AI tool that allows us to do

play03:46

generative fill and adapt the image

play03:51

through AI it's really quite incredible

play03:55

so we're going to use the Marquee tool

play03:56

draw around our character

play03:58

and we've got this little text prompt

play03:59

here and we're going to type in remove

play04:03

boy from scene

play04:06

and press generate

play04:10

and there we go that's actually

play04:11

incredibly well done better than average

play04:13

so we're just going to save that image

play04:16

as a clean background plate that we can

play04:17

use Save at

play04:20

then we're actually going to take that

play04:21

image and copy it open up the wider

play04:24

image

play04:25

and we're going to paste it in here and

play04:27

then I'm going to scale it down and just

play04:30

by eyeballing it replace the current

play04:33

scene we might do a little bit of um

play04:35

fading out

play04:37

choose the Eraser tool choose a soft

play04:39

brush

play04:41

just so it Blends and then we're going

play04:43

to save this

play04:45

as The Wider View

play04:48

and then we can close Photoshop

play04:50

now we're going to create a 3D depth map

play04:53

using a wider image of the scene without

play04:55

the character as we've painted them out

play04:57

in Photoshop so we're using a free tool

play05:00

that runs on huggingface.co called Midas

play05:03

huggingface.co is an amazing place where

play05:06

you can harness the power of various

play05:07

different gpus and computers to run

play05:10

different AI models and other bits of

play05:12

software but Midas works for free I'll

play05:15

include a link below the video

play05:17

description so on here you can just

play05:19

click and choose your image so we've got

play05:22

the wider image there without the

play05:23

character

play05:24

press open

play05:25

press submit it takes less than three

play05:28

seconds to create the step pass that we

play05:29

can then use to drive our 3D animation

play05:32

later on

play05:33

let's just press download

play05:35

we're now going to hop over to a bit of

play05:37

software from elevenlabs.io which allows

play05:40

you to create very lifelike AI generated

play05:43

voiceovers so we're going to use this to

play05:45

bring our short script to life that we

play05:47

can then use to drive the animation for

play05:49

our character

play05:51

so once logged in you can hop over to

play05:53

the voice library and try out different

play05:55

voice samples every two things others

play05:58

can do and will do blessed are the

play06:00

hearts that as we are liberated from our

play06:02

own fear we have committed the Golden

play06:04

Rule to memory let us now committed to

play06:06

life fantastic

play06:08

um so you can try any of these and then

play06:10

you can add them to your voice lab you

play06:13

can have more and more depending on how

play06:14

much you pay for your subscription with

play06:16

11 laps

play06:17

um so I've got three here because I'm on

play06:19

the most basic tier and then go to

play06:21

speech synthesis choose your selected

play06:24

voiceover artist and try different

play06:26

settings as you go so we need a short

play06:28

little script so let's try out the AI

play06:31

robots are coming but it's all going to

play06:32

be A-Okay because we can go to the beach

play06:35

press generate

play06:36

the AI robots are coming but it's all

play06:38

going to be a okay because we can go to

play06:40

the beach so that's okay we can run it a

play06:42

few times and each time you press

play06:43

generate you'll get a slightly different

play06:44

outcome because it's

play06:46

based on the AI and it's not always the

play06:49

same but we can also include some pauses

play06:52

so the AI robots are coming dot dot dot

play06:55

jump down a few lines but it's all going

play06:57

to be a-okay

play06:58

full stop

play07:00

because we can go to the beach

play07:01

exclamation mark let's try that out

play07:05

the AI robots are coming but it's all

play07:07

going to be A-Okay because we can go to

play07:09

the beach

play07:10

there we go that's good enough for us we

play07:13

can press download and it downloads the

play07:15

audio file to our compute

play07:16

we're now going to hop over to a piece

play07:18

of software from Dash id.com did

play07:22

um that can create animated avatars from

play07:25

a photo or a stylized but quite

play07:28

realistic uh cartoon character just by

play07:30

providing a piece of audio or a script

play07:32

and it will create its own voiceover but

play07:34

the voiceovers aren't as good as those

play07:36

from 11 Labs so I'll quickly show you

play07:39

how we do that login press generate

play07:42

video and this is where you can add your

play07:43

script to upload a voiceover and also

play07:45

choose your presenter we're going to add

play07:47

a new image for our presenter so press

play07:48

plus upload our image with the close-up

play07:51

of our character press enter give it a

play07:54

second think about it and identify the

play07:56

character in the scene and then we're

play07:58

going to press upload your own voice the

play08:01

AI robots are coming and just press

play08:03

generate video and there we go just a

play08:05

few seconds later it's created the video

play08:07

Let's quickly press play to preview the

play08:09

AI robots are coming but it's all going

play08:12

to be A-Okay because we can go to the

play08:14

beach very happy with that so we're

play08:16

going to press download

play08:18

save it to the computer

play08:19

now we're going to use another amazing

play08:21

AI tool from runwayml which allows you

play08:25

to create all sorts of AI generated

play08:27

video content using text prompts or you

play08:29

can use video sources and image

play08:31

references to create unique videos and

play08:33

it's actually really a really really

play08:34

cool tool which will deal with in a

play08:36

separate tutorial but what we wanted for

play08:39

is to actually do some simple background

play08:41

removal so we're going to log in

play08:43

go to assets

play08:46

upload our

play08:48

the AI robots are coming our talking

play08:51

character from did

play08:53

and then we're going to press edit

play08:54

videos

play08:55

we're going to choose remove background

play08:58

then from our assets up here we're going

play09:00

to grab a character and we're just going

play09:02

to click

play09:04

once possibly twice done pretty well but

play09:07

it has added some of these materials so

play09:09

we up here in the right we can choose

play09:10

exclude and we just add a little dot

play09:12

over here add a few more of these red

play09:14

dots and there we go let's remove those

play09:16

and then press done masking and then

play09:19

press export 720p is fine for us MP4

play09:31

to assets

play09:32

and you can see the video being exported

play09:34

here

play09:35

then we can click on the video the AI

play09:37

robots are coming download

play09:40

to save it to the computer

play09:42

okay as a quick recap on what we've

play09:43

created so far we have our full scene

play09:46

created using mid-journey with the

play09:48

character removed using Photoshop we

play09:50

have our depth pass also created using

play09:53

that same image run through Midas on

play09:55

hugging face and we have our animated

play09:57

character brought to life using did with

play10:00

a voiceover made using 11 labs and the

play10:02

background removed using a Runway ml and

play10:06

now we get to do the fun bit and hop

play10:07

into Adobe After Effects bring those

play10:09

different assets together and bring it

play10:11

to life through some more traditional

play10:12

digital animation techniques grab our

play10:15

three files the depth files the

play10:16

background and our character with the

play10:17

background removed create a brand new

play10:19

composition let's do 1920x1080 and we

play10:22

can do a frame rate of 24 frames per

play10:24

second and we're going to grab those

play10:27

three assets bring them down to here

play10:32

um scale them up until our background

play10:33

fits nicely within the scene

play10:36

so we have our background our depth pass

play10:38

and our character we can ignore the

play10:40

character for now

play10:42

um

play10:43

so the depth pass

play10:46

we can bring that to Life by right

play10:49

clicking the effect

play10:50

choosing distort and displacement map

play10:54

choosing our depth fast and then

play10:56

changing the displacement to use the

play10:59

luminance channel for both the X and the

play11:01

Y

play11:03

so that's zero and then if you up these

play11:07

values you can see there's

play11:09

a cool 3d effect they've push too far

play11:11

just start to break the image but you

play11:14

can see how it does create this cool 3d

play11:16

effect for what is essentially a 2D

play11:18

image which is pretty cool and then we

play11:20

can grab our character bring him up and

play11:23

then choose keying

play11:25

key lights

play11:27

screen color and pick the green color

play11:28

and then if we hop back in here and

play11:30

actually if we import the wide view with

play11:33

the character still included

play11:34

as a reference match the scale of the

play11:37

other one so 132

play11:40

and then reduce the opacity scale him

play11:43

down

play11:44

to match what we had in the original and

play11:48

using the mask tool

play11:51

just draw a mask at the bottom

play11:54

double tap M and press invert to invert

play11:57

the mask

play11:58

add a little feather of two pixels

play12:03

scale him just a tiny bit more

play12:06

composition length to five seconds

play12:11

A4 just so we know what we're dealing

play12:13

with

play12:16

and we've got our call uh background

play12:19

Distortion using the displacement map

play12:22

we're going to hide our character for

play12:23

now so we're not actually interested in

play12:25

him

play12:26

um and we're going to pre-comp

play12:28

all of this

play12:30

and call it uh background scene

play12:35

and then we're going to create a new

play12:36

camera

play12:37

let's stick with a one node camera

play12:40

open up the transform properties

play12:43

and we have a position

play12:45

and then we're going to open up our

play12:46

pre-comp so we've got both compositions

play12:48

here and we're going to grab our

play12:49

background

play12:50

and move it so we've got our background

play12:52

composition and our Master comp here

play12:54

with the camera

play12:56

we're going to link the

play12:58

displacement map values to our camera

play13:02

so we drop this down go down to

play13:05

displacement map horizontal and our

play13:07

vertical so we click our maximum

play13:09

horizontal displacement use the pick

play13:11

whip and select the x value on the

play13:14

position of the camera

play13:16

if you drop down here you can see the

play13:18

expression

play13:19

and we're actually going to we want it

play13:21

to stay at zero so we're going to

play13:23

link it to the camera but then we're

play13:24

going to type

play13:25

on the expression here at the end just

play13:27

put minus 960 which is the current value

play13:30

of the camera

play13:32

and then we're going to do the same for

play13:34

the vertical we're going to pick width

play13:36

choose the Y value position from the

play13:38

camera roll down to see the expression

play13:40

and then put minus 540.

play13:43

then close this background scene for now

play13:46

in our composition View Window we can

play13:48

press C to cycle through the camera

play13:50

controls we want this one with the

play13:51

panning tool we can pan left and right

play13:54

using the camera to affect the

play13:56

displacement map in the pre-comp give us

play13:58

that call 3D control next we can do some

play14:01

things to improve the scene even further

play14:03

so if we set some keyframes for the

play14:05

position of the camera

play14:08

double click on the camera and change it

play14:10

to a two node camera

play14:13

which will give you

play14:15

your point of Interest

play14:17

as you can see in the top view here

play14:20

and then with the point of Interest set

play14:21

up and push really far away

play14:24

you can then set keyframes as you pan or

play14:26

rotate around the scene

play14:28

we can also remove that white Edge to

play14:30

the scene by jumping into the pre-comp

play14:31

clicking our background and then ticking

play14:33

wrap pixels around on the displacement

play14:35

map effect another thing you can do is

play14:37

turn all these layers inside the

play14:39

pre-comp to 3D

play14:41

whilst you're here you can copy the

play14:43

character jump back into the main

play14:44

composition and on that background scene

play14:46

tick the constantly rasterize button now

play14:50

when you rotate around the scene you get

play14:51

a nice 3d effect but you can also zoom

play14:55

in with the camera

play14:56

and still have that 3d effect even when

play14:59

zoomed in now we're going to paste in

play15:01

our 3D character from the pre-comp that

play15:03

we copied earlier

play15:04

and as we pan across our scene using our

play15:06

keyframes you'll see that they're in the

play15:09

scene and they are moving with the

play15:10

camera so already a 3D layer but they're

play15:13

not in the right depth position for our

play15:16

scene if you're very lucky depending on

play15:18

your mid-journey artwork and the

play15:19

character position and your depth pass

play15:21

they might just be in the right position

play15:22

already but it's unlikely and so ideally

play15:25

we just grab hold of the said Direction

play15:28

and push them back in position but it

play15:31

won't work because technically they're

play15:33

on the same plane as our background

play15:34

image and our background image is just a

play15:36

flat image it's only that 3d effect

play15:39

we've got going on in the pre-comp that

play15:40

makes it seem 3D so the way around this

play15:43

is to create a new adjustment layer make

play15:46

that 3D

play15:47

and position it between the background

play15:49

and

play15:50

the character and that breaks the

play15:53

hierarchy of the 3D in the scene

play15:55

which is sometimes quite annoying but in

play15:58

this instance it's quite handy

play16:00

um so we can push our character back

play16:02

to where we think they should be

play16:05

and position them by eye

play16:10

and there we go we've added our

play16:12

character into our scene

play16:14

so now when we Pan the camera move

play16:16

around

play16:17

they're nicely situated exactly where we

play16:19

want them

play16:21

and it was at that annoying point that

play16:23

my computer decided to freeze up as the

play16:25

hard drive was nearly full and it turns

play16:27

out that my cloud storage wasn't syncing

play16:29

so I've had to jump through and redo all

play16:32

the steps to get to this point all

play16:34

exactly the same but the background is

play16:35

now slightly different from when I did

play16:37

the character removal in Photoshop and

play16:40

I've also been through and set some nice

play16:42

camera moves just panning left to right

play16:44

and there's jumps to a close-up

play16:46

jumps back to a wide

play16:49

now we could stop there and the video

play16:50

would look pretty good

play16:52

um but I want to make it a little bit

play16:53

fancier so I'm first of all I want to

play16:56

fix uh there's some blue spill in the

play16:58

hair from when we did the background

play17:00

removal using Runway

play17:03

which you can see up here isn't looking

play17:05

too hot so I'm going to duplicate our

play17:08

character layer draw another mask

play17:11

and get rid of the lower mask on that

play17:13

one and we're going to use our key light

play17:15

and we're going to duplicate it

play17:17

and grab some of this blue that's in

play17:19

there

play17:20

and then we can unsolo that character

play17:25

copy that mask onto the on beneath

play17:28

and set that to a subtract

play17:31

and then I don't know if you can see

play17:32

this on YouTube but there's a very small

play17:34

line there so on that mask we just

play17:36

duplicated we can just reduce the

play17:39

expansion down to five pixels and that's

play17:41

got rid of that line and there we go the

play17:43

hair is a lot better not perfect we

play17:45

could spend more time refining The Mask

play17:46

or picking some other colors from there

play17:48

but uh it's certainly better now to make

play17:51

the environment feel a bit more rich and

play17:52

Alive we're going to be adding some lens

play17:54

flares and some dust just floating

play17:57

around in the scene and the dust is nice

play17:59

and easy I've just grabbed a stock clip

play18:01

of dust particles from envato elements

play18:04

and they're just floating around they're

play18:06

moving slightly quickly so I'm just

play18:08

going to crudely slow it down

play18:10

using time stretch

play18:12

said it's 200 and then change the

play18:14

blending mode to screen

play18:17

so we've now got dust floating around in

play18:19

our scene and when we cut to the

play18:20

close-up camera I have separated the

play18:22

layer up there and made it slightly

play18:23

larger so the particles in a different

play18:25

position

play18:26

we can also make those layers 3D

play18:29

and position them so as the camera is

play18:31

moving

play18:33

the particles are moving in 3D space as

play18:35

well now to add some 3D lens flares to

play18:38

the scene we're going to use optical

play18:39

flares from Video Copilot which is a

play18:42

paid plugin

play18:43

now let's do this we're going to

play18:44

duplicate our background scene drop that

play18:47

down here

play18:48

call it

play18:49

light sample

play18:52

jump into here pre-comp the background

play18:56

layer and call this lighting dots

play19:00

and that won't affect our original

play19:01

background pre-comp but yes we have this

play19:04

local lighting dots I'm going to jump

play19:06

into here

play19:07

right click and turn that into a guide

play19:09

layer so it's not actually going to be

play19:10

seen in the final thing

play19:12

we're then going to use the shape layer

play19:14

to create some tiny circles which would

play19:16

be markers for worried like our lights

play19:17

and lens flares to appear in the scene

play19:21

another one I've just duplicated that

play19:22

but another one

play19:24

on the side of the Earth or the window

play19:27

in the background

play19:29

another one

play19:31

over on this Orange

play19:33

stick thing here I'm actually going to

play19:35

change the color for that one to Orange

play19:39

maybe the one by the Earth will make

play19:41

that slightly blue

play19:49

okay so we just hide that

play19:51

and now I don't know if you can see

play19:52

these on YouTube but we've got these

play19:53

tiny dots and you can play around with

play19:55

the scale to create bigger lens flares

play19:58

as well as the intensity of the opacity

play20:01

so let's jump all the way back to our

play20:03

main composition

play20:05

we're going to create a new layer be a

play20:07

solid or an adjustment layer

play20:10

call it lens flare

play20:14

and then go to effects and then we're

play20:16

going to right click choose Video

play20:17

Copilot optical flares and we're going

play20:20

to change the source type to luminance

play20:23

Source layer it's a light sample

play20:25

and we can see we have optical flares

play20:27

there already we can play around with

play20:28

the brightness

play20:30

scale

play20:32

you can set the center position for

play20:33

where the optical flares are pointing we

play20:36

can then go down to render mode and

play20:37

choose on transparent

play20:40

and now when we spin through the scene

play20:41

making sure that constantly rasterize is

play20:43

turned on for the light sample layer

play20:46

as we pan through the optical flares

play20:48

track with the scene

play20:51

and including when we jump to the

play20:53

close-up

play20:57

you can then play around with things

play20:58

like flicker to have some movement to

play21:01

the lighting

play21:02

play around with the settings in optical

play21:03

flares as well as the size and opacity

play21:06

of your shape layers for the lighting

play21:08

dots

play21:09

there we go that's all looking quite

play21:11

cool just going to add a

play21:13

black solid with a rounded rectangle

play21:16

tool mask

play21:17

double tap m

play21:19

invert the mask

play21:22

and add a simple black vignette to the

play21:24

side of the scene

play21:25

plus we can add an adjustment layer

play21:28

choose color correction right click and

play21:30

choose the effect color correction Lumi

play21:33

tree color which is the same coloring

play21:35

system built into Adobe Premiere if you

play21:38

drop down basic correction you can

play21:39

adjust exposure contrast and things like

play21:42

that

play21:43

also if you open up creative you can go

play21:45

through different looks

play21:48

and adjust the intensity of these

play21:51

which can quickly allow you to try out

play21:52

different things and see how they impact

play21:54

your image

play21:56

now you could evolve this project even

play21:58

further and spend more and more time you

play22:00

could add some subtle shoulder movement

play22:01

and head tilting into the character by

play22:03

using the puppet tool built into Adobe

play22:06

After Effects you could play around with

play22:07

the depth map by applying a brightness

play22:09

and contrast to that layer so you can

play22:12

shift the depth you could run some

play22:13

camera tracking on the scene directly in

play22:15

After Effects which would allow you to

play22:17

then place things in the 3D environment

play22:19

or drop lights in and Link lens flares

play22:21

to actual physical lights as well as

play22:23

Place 3D Motion Graphics into the

play22:25

environment with ease I've opened up the

play22:28

voiceover audio in Adobe Audition just

play22:30

to do a quick pitch shift so that it's

play22:32

slightly higher and Suits our character

play22:34

and this will look better so we select

play22:36

all the audio press FX

play22:38

climbing pitch pitch shifter

play22:41

and then we can adjust

play22:43

our semitones but it's all going to be

play22:45

A-Okay because we can go to the beach

play22:47

the AI robots are coming

play22:51

but it's all going to be there we go I

play22:53

think that's much better

play22:55

now I've dropped that pitch shifted

play22:56

voiceover track to the bottom of our

play22:58

composition and muted all the other

play23:00

channels so that's everything I'm going

play23:02

to cover in this tutorial and I'm going

play23:04

to render the scene out so you can watch

play23:06

it in all its Glory

play23:08

the AI robots are coming but it's all

play23:10

going to be A-Okay because we can go to

play23:12

the beach

play23:14

and that's a wrap hopefully this

play23:16

tutorial has been helpful and maybe

play23:18

introduce some new AI tools or shown

play23:20

some professional motion graphic

play23:22
