Runway, the cutting-edge New York-based AI video startup, has just dropped a bombshell with its Gen-2 update.
AI filmmakers are calling it a “game changer” and a “pivotal moment in generative AI.”
What’s New in Gen-2?
With Gen-2, users can create four-second videos from scratch using text prompts or add motion to uploaded images.
In Previous update, Runway extended the AI-generated videos to a stunning 18 seconds.
They also introduced “Director Mode,” letting users control the movement of their virtual camera.
Today’s update brings even smoother, higher-definition motion to both AI-generated and still image subjects.
The resolution of videos generated from still images has shot up from 1792×1024 to 2816×1536.
We have released an update for both text to video and image to video generation with Gen-2, bringing major improvements to both the fidelity and consistency of video results.— Runway (@runwayml) November 2, 2023

How Does It Work?
No actual cameras are involved here to covert your Image into Video. The movements are all simulated, but it feels like you’re behind a real camera.
You can zoom in, pan, and add motion effects, all in the web or iOS app.
AI Creatives in Action
Using AI-generated imagery from sources like Midjourney, creative minds can now craft entire AI productions.
Some have even put together music videos that hit the big screen!
In a nutshell, Runway’s Gen-2 is a game-changer, revolutionizing how we create videos with AI. It’s like having a film studio in your pocket!
The future of filmmaking just got a whole lot brighter.
