      Technology isn't going to suddenly make it better. What are you gonna do.. implement AI and remove the human element?

    • Marcus
      Marcus Hace un mes +2

      @ADDADHDOCD3PO Well, artificial actors might be a thing. Like have an AI for the screenplay, have an AI for the scenery from the descriptions in the screenplay, have an AI generate the characters with the same setting, have AI voices...yup from the descriptions...
      Though it likely would lack the human element of quality control, though with advanced enough parameters AI might get something done as well... like for continuity of eye colors (or other features) if they have a "memory" storage ready where the different AI's would draw from for consistency.
      Or the anti-"stutter" feature might be some autodetection of color changings inside elements, so it would act on "stuttering" but be fine with transitions to shadows or the reverse by introducing a light source.
      Basically it's just a lot of work but shouldn't be impossible, likely will be a work in progress for X amount of time too as an algorithm or any program for that matter would only do what one tells it to do so figuring and experiencing the individual parameters is a big step.

      Dude I'm glad someone else mentioned it, even with certain elements not being perfected still, the rabbit was actually super well done and could convince someone it was hand-animated. Speaking of, I saw this dude who I think would be excellent to review on VFX Artists React, he goes by Eagan Tilghman, and he recently did a stop-motion Scooby Doo episode that you would swear was done by hand, but was actually entirely done in Blender. Definitely worth a watch if you're a fan of Corridor.

      @Deliveredmean42 because he's still in his 60s when we see him in the flashback, ARPS2 starts in a flashback before the boys were young adults, so the king was probably in his 60s in the flashback whereas when the king recently died, he was in his 80s

      I think I'd rather see them apply this methodology toward an original film if we're fantasizing about the possibilities. They've crushed the anime parody angle already, but they're still barely scratching the surface of potential for this style of animation.

      @Abject Permanence When you consider how much the bts changed between the first and second Anime RPS, I think it's worth putting more time into furthering it as a short series just to get the style down properly before moving onto something intended to be serious.

      ​@Abject Permanenceidk if I'd say scratching the surface, I mean with each of the episodes they've done so far they have basically been at the cutting edge of their abilities with this tech so far. And they can explore it further without making a longer short film, infact being based on episodes allows them to further inprove it without being locked onto using old software until the projecr is finished, but be able to use any new tool that comes out as they make new episodes

    I love how heavily they leaned into the anime style in the live action shots, like the dramatic slow mo when young Jules collapses from his chair or holding on a single frame when a character is in the middle of an intense action. They didn't shoot it like a live production, they shot it like an anime, which must've required a bit of a paradigm shift in how they approached those shots. Awesome work guys!

    I think the most amazing thing about this is, early 2000s corridor was one of the trailblazers of adopting new technology in the youtube scene, and I love the brilliant silly VFX work you do... but this new direction is something else entirely!
    Y'all are hiring artists, investing in bigger projects than ever before, and scaling up the technology and applications into an entire new category of art. It feels like Rooster Teeth during their Monty Oum era all over again, and I'm simply overjoyed to be seeing this rebirth for your studio.

    While the AI is really cool, the reason this is so good is because of the human element to it. Y'alls performances were so funny and well done and you can really see how they made the video in this comparison. Was a little sad to see that occasionally the ai lost some parts of your performance, sometimes giving the characters straight faces when in the video they had much better and exaggerated expressions, especially with nikos character although it still turned out great! I imagine this will get better as the ai and workflow are perfected.

    By any chance have you guys experimented with adding eyeliner and outlines to your face features in the original footage.

And also adding a single line down the middle of your nose

      I had the same idea a long time ago for using EbSynth to make rotoscope animations, using makeup to create "anchors" in the live video for drawn details to "stick to" in the animation. Some tests were done and it helped a bit. I'm sure it could help with this type of rotoscopy too.

    All the small hair, body and lip movements in general were adapted well by the AI, I just didn't like the scene starting 7:55 because I thought the mouth looked too cartoony and not realistic. Now I found out it was actually acted that way! I know this kind of yelling was supposed to make the scene more dramatic, but I would've preferred it to be just yelled/said normally with natural lip movements. But anyways, absolutely amazing work! ❤❤❤

    * I think the end product would look better if the lighting in the source video was more diffuse. You can add the lighting back in via controlnet in a second step.
    * This might seem counter intuitive, but lowering the resolution of the source video might actually help the AI out. If you give the AI too much information to work with, it get's a little overwelmed. You can always upscale later since esrgan has great anime models.

      Stable Diffusion has a slider setting for blurring the input, there's no need for preprocessing in an external tool.

    Amazing! Aside from all the (I'm sure) great fixes and editing to fix mistakes learned from ep1, the slight overexaggeration of words and lip movements to account for the AI's wackiness with lip movements is great

      lip sync still looking pretty bad, though. They could have re-recorded the voices to get them closer to the final animation.. Sound editing is most definitely not their strength

      @Sean Marholm Whilst true, this is also not supposed to be a super high value/time intensive project as far as I can see.
      The next iteration (whether next ep or whole series) will improve the AI and so save a bunch of time otherwise spent fixing less egregious AI mistakes. Makes improvement easier to see too

    • Taqresu

      @Sean Marholm The lip syncing being off was a deliberate creative choice, because it's a parodying 90s anime with terrible lip sync.

    This is so cool! For episode 3 would love to see a focus on trying to improve the mouths of the characters. The rest of the animation is basically there. Would it be possible to do a second pass over a close up of each mouth? There are some scenes where they look really good and they happen to be the really close up shots.

    this episode was fantastic, but honestly, the live action takes you did are a million times better! Unfortunately, a lot of the performance is lost in this process and if you had done this like your baseball anime video or something, it would have been so much better. However, the leap in quality from the last one cannot be denied. I'm sure this process and the tech involved will only get better and better. Can't wait to see where this goes in the future!

    I think the things that really sell the technique are the small motions. Niko/Phil pacing was so impressive.
    Really there were only a few things that were noticeable imo, and some were straight up attributed to the costuming.
    The old kings beard being brown literally underneath the white, Sam's muscles being just off, and some of the mouth movements were the more jarring aspects that weren’t directly due to the translation, but the original footage.
    Really, the only main issue that I think is noticeable to a layperson is the eyes. I don’t know if there is a way to dial that in, but I'm pretty sure that they showed in some of the bts vfx breakdowns that for some scenes they literally just replaced the eyes. I wonder if that is the path forward, making another process for just that, or if the current process needs a larger sample size of faces/eyes to get more consistency.
    I look forward to seeing the next steps!

    Love the use of treadmills for walking sequences rather than the "stand in place while stamping" which telegraphs what it really is. Yeah, the "standing place" was used in a few places, but it employed sparingly and for more "shuffling" sequences shot from straight forward or behind.

    I really feel like this transcends “just using ai” this has the feel of the old rotoscoped tLotR films. The AI is just one piece of a much larger production. It still takes artists and vision to make all this happen.
    Barbarian king Sam is a top tier villain. Can’t wait for the “guess what….chicken butt” wizard and the ancient “cool S” rune carver to show up.

      Your idea about the "chicken butt" joke and "cool S" is interesting. I wonder what else they could slot into this lore. Knock knock jokes? "Circle circle dot dot, now I have my cooties shot"? A character who attacks by inexplicably predicting whatever their enemy is about to say so they can "jinx" them? Maybe a witch named "Bloody Mary" who comes for you if you spesk her name three times?
