The SDXL-OpenPose model acts as a gateway for animators to explore the richness of character movements and also paves the way for a more nuanced storytelling experience. It significantly reduces the time and effort animators spend manually creating realistic postures. The model eliminates tedious calculations and guesswork, providing a ready-made template and freeing up time for other aspects of animation.

Personalize movie scenes:

Imagine the ability to re-imagine your favorite movie scenes, not just by changing the narrative, but by modifying the very fabric of the scene itself. We can provide personalized instructions adjusting the character poses based on the input image we would like to emulate and change the overall composition as well.

Imagine I want to modify this particular shot from the film "Social Network" into a shot where two cowboys sitting in chairs, as they engage in a tense conversation, captured in a wide cinematic shot characteristic of classic Western films.  

Prompt: two cowboys interacting with each other sitting in a chair, western cinema, cinematic, wide-angle

This isn't just about modification,  it's about creating a cinematic universe uniquely tailored to your preferences. The character poses, the ambiance, and the overall composition are yours to command. Whether you seek to infuse a touch of nostalgia, introduce a dash of personal flair, or completely reimagine a scene, the possibilities are limitless.

However, it's important to note that, in the current version of the model, optimal results are achieved when working with scenes featuring standalone characters. Scenes with intricate backgrounds or large crowds might present challenges. Yet, even within these parameters, the scope for creative expression is vast.

Create Custom avatars and Characters

Creating characters for stories, games, or virtual reality usually takes a lot of time. But what if you could easily try out different designs by changing how they stand? Imagine finding the perfect look for your character based on other images and prompts in just a few clicks and simple commands.

With this approach, you can quickly experiment with various designs, making the process much faster and more enjoyable. For example, let us say we want our character to be a female in a futuristic city more like in the game Cyberpunk 2077.
