Features of Runway
On exploring the tool we came across so many exciting features which can help you in editing your video, image. Let’s look some of them.
Video to Video
Runway has this exciting feature for edit the video. You can edit the video by adapting an image theme, by some preset or by some prompts. Isn’t it exciting. Let’s check it out.
We will try this feature on this video.
From an image : It has the option to upload an image or you can choose from existing one. We uploaded an image of some charcoal lines. and it converted the above video into a charcoal sketch. We uploaded this image .
Here is the result.
It gives only 3 seconds of video. For more you have to purchase a paid plan.
Let’s try out some other options
From Preset: It has some preset filter for editing. We tried charcoal sketch. Here is the result.
You can see in above video it adapted the charcoal sketching and converted the video. Personally, We liked it.
From Prompts : We tried editing from presets, from image now let’s try how good it is with prompts.
We gave the prompt: put a bee on the flower. Here is the result.
Result is not expected. We are not able to identify the bee clearly. Let’s try some more prompts.
Prompt no 2: add some snow in the background
For the prompt “add some snow in the background” it gave the above result. We tried with style strength 50% and 100% respectively. You can see that both results are different. But, We personally did not like it because it changed the originality of the flower.
We tried video-to-video feature. Let’s try some other feature provided by Runway.
Image to Image
Image to image conversion tasks include style transfer, super-resolution, and image colorization.
We gave the prompt as “Add snow in background”. The results we got were really satisfactory
Text to Image
Text-to-image is a feature that allows the generation of images from textual descriptions.With text-to-image, users can easily create visual content using traditional image creation methods. Let’s try this feature.
Prompt 1: A dog is climbing a coconut tree.
Let’s try another prompt
Prompt 2: Shark driving a car in ocean.
We tried this feature and honestly the results were not up to the mark. There are many other tools for text-to-image in the market which are giving far better results on the same prompt.
This feature seemed to be very Interesting by just reading the name but when we explored, it was just expanding the image by changing its aspect ratio. In other words this feature basically changes the aspect ratio of the Image.
We tried giving it an image and it just changed its output. There were limited aspect ratio options to which the image could be changed. Honestly reviewing this feature is commonly available on any other web or mobile application in which user can change the aspect ratio as per their requirements
This feature converts the images to video. We can give some pictures as Input and this will make a video using those pictures. It provided a good transition effect from one picture to another. Users can control the length of video but have no control over the transition effect. This feature has single transition effect(more may be available in paid version) which it applies to all the images in the video
Text to 3D texture
AI-powered 3D textures can be used to create more realistic and dynamic virtual environments in games and simulations. They can also be used in architectural visualization and product design to provide a more accurate representation of how objects would look and behave in the real world.
We can give texture as prompt and it generates a 3D texture of the prompt.
There are may more features present on this tool, you can check those here.
