How to create AI-animated video

The Restyle feature uses video-to-video technology and allows you to apply an AI filter, or AI style, to input content. AI styles are the result of training the model on datasets illustrating particular aesthetics—be it a cartoon, Halloween, or vintage anime. This way, you get AI-animated video using AI style transfer.

Now, let’s dive into how you can use Unboring to create AI-crafted videos. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for using the video Restyle feature, which is currently getting a lot of buzz.

  1. To start, visit the Unboring website and create an account. Sign in with your Gmail or Facebook account. By creating an account, you can easily access your generated results and share them with your followers instantly.

  1. Now, when you’re logged in, let’s get to the much-anticipated part. Head over to the Restyle feature, and we’ll start with how to restyle a video using one of the AI filters.
  1. Click the “Upload” button to select a video from your computer, or simply drag and drop the video into the window.

  1. After uploading your video, you’ll be asked to cut it down. At this stage, you can set the start and end points on the timeline to apply the filter to the chosen part of your video.

  1. Next, pick the AI filter to restyle. You’ll find lots of cool styles on the platform, from classic anime and ink punk to claymation and vintage, plus plenty more. Have fun checking out all the choices and select a style that feels right for you.
  1. Once you’ve picked a style, it’s time to render your video. The processing time will depend on its duration: the longer your video is, the more tokens will be required to render it. Unboring provides transparent pricing, so you will know how many tokens are needed for each piece of content manipulation. It generally takes 2 tokens per 1 second of your video to restyle.

The platform is free to try, so you have free tokens to experiment with its features. You can also check how it works in the demo. 

  1. The AI filter is applied when you click the “Restyle” button. It will take some time, but the cool thing is, you can skip the rendering process and try rendering another video while your previous piece of content is being processed.

  1. Once the rendering is complete, you can watch a preview of your AI-generated video. If it looks good to you, click “Download,” and it’s ready to be shared on your social media.

There is also another way to animate your content with Unboring. It involves a few more steps, but the result can be truly amazing.

  1. Let’s start by applying an AI filter to your picture. Choose the “Image restyle” feature on the Unboring home page and upload a photo from your computer. The image restyle feature offers the same extensive collection of styles, and processing images only takes seconds compared to videos. Restyling an image costs two tokens.
  1. Once you’ve chosen one of those artistic AI filters, click “Restyle” and enjoy your AI-generated image in seconds. By moving a switch, you can compare your input photo with the restyled one.

  1. Then, you can download your restyled picture, but take your time—the most interesting part is ahead.
  1. Let’s dive into ‘Animate,’ another cool AI feature from Unboring. It’s great for animating both your own pictures and those created by AI. To animate a photo, click “Upload” and select your previously restyled picture from your computer.
  1. The next step is to choose one of the AI animations and sound presets. Unboring has a hundred (!) of ready-made tidbits, from top memes to TV catchphrases and timeless music hits. 
  1. Choose which faces in the photo you’d like to animate. Keep in mind that animating each face will use up one token. After making your selection, simply click “Animate” located in the bottom right corner, to start the process.

What’s this all about?

It’s really inspiring to watch non-tech savvy creators who’ve dabbled with AI on their own use these tools in such fun and expressive ways, making them accessible to everyone.

Generative AI tools are incredibly advanced now, letting you make and tweak awesome videos easily. Yet, a lot of these tools can be tough for regular folks who just want to have fun and create without needing special editing skills, or Midjourney prompting secrets and closed communities of AI artists. But imagine if “one-click” all-in-one tools become the norm—they could shift the whole game, enabling everyday creators to whip up top-notch AI content just like the pros.
