Welcome to this week’s checkpoint, featuring AI princesses, blobs that can rearrange rooms, new animation tools, mad soundtracks and more - hope you enjoy!

News & articles
Latent Princess Generator – Not just for princesses, this is a new general-purpose Clip-guided latent diffusion approach from @dango233 @multimodalart which produces excellent results.
Centipede Diffusion update – I’ve featured this notebook a lot, but it’s just so good. Latest release sees a new UI for precisely selecting where to inpaint. Definitely worth checking out.
Thin-Plate Spline Motion Model for Image Animation – Cryptic name, but can transfer motion from a video to a still image startlingly well – Colab, Github, Paper
SymphonyNet – Generate symphonic soundtracks to compliment your AI movies. Pretty cool, though the results do get more mad as they progress.
To my fellow AI artists: A lot of critics are going to tell you that you are not a 'real artist'.

When was the last time in your life that you were a part of the avant-garde, we are at the beginning of a revolution and you are part of it. Be proud. (1/3)

Featured notebook – BlobGAN
BlobGAN: Spatially Disentangled Scene Representations
BlobGAN: Spatially Disentangled Scene Representations
Instead of generating an image as a whole, BlobGAN constructs scenes from depth-arranged ‘blobs’ of elements. The upshot is that by moving and resizing a blob, the network moves and resizes a wardrobe in your bedroom scene, for example.
The interface for editing blobs is tricky and the ability to upload custom scenes hasn’t been released yet, but it works well as a first release. This kind of feature built into something like Photoshop would be huge.
