Meta working on Make-A-Video AI that creates video from text

Make-A-Video is an AI system being built by Meta engineers which can create videos from text input. It is like the video version of OpenAI’s Dall-E, Dall-E Flow by Google Colab, and so on.

In a post, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the video only needed a description, and not much else to create the video. He shared a 20-sec compilation of five seconds of clips that the AI created:

As Zuckerberg himself said, video generating technology is much more difficult to build than photo generators. In addition, the Make-A-Video system differs from the features you find on some other platforms where you can convert text to video by using a series of stock images.

Meta Make-A-Video AI can also produce images.

Instead, it is more like the next-gen Dall-E and its alternatives which create images that don’t already exist somewhere else. It also creates images but takes it a step further by animating them. You can choose to make the videos look surreal, realistic, or stylised.

For now, the feature is still under production and may be sometime before it is available for the public. There is no information yet on how it would be accessed when it goes public. Likely, the quality of the videos may improve overtime as well.

Text-to-video tech is still a new field and Meta is one of the first we are seeing making significant strides already. However, its revelation may lead to more in the future. Although, there is also the Imagen Video by Google, which offers a similar service.
