Step-by-Step Guide to ComfyUI’s Vid2Vid AnimateDiff
Here’s the step-by-step guide to downloading ComfyUI’s Vid2Vid AnimateDiff:
Step 1: Prepare Your Tools
Before we get started, make sure you have the following nodes and resources at your disposal:
Animate Diff/ControlNet Nodes:
You’ll need to install the following nodes for AnimateDiff:
Step 2: Download the Workflow
To begin, download the workflow JSON file. This file will serve as the foundation for your animation project.
Step 3: Prepare Your Video Frames
- Split your video frames using a video editing program or an online tool like ezgif.com.
- Adjust the frame rate to your desired setting.
Step 4: Get the Required Checkpoints and Motion Modules
Download the necessary checkpoints and motion modules. You have several options for motion modules, including:
- Original modules are available at Hugging Face.
- Fine-tuned modules such as CiaraRowles/TemporalDiff, manshoety/AD_Stabilized_Motion, or CivitAI Motion Model Experiments.
Step 5: Load Workflow and Install Nodes
Load the workflow you downloaded earlier and install the necessary nodes. Make sure to check that each of the models is loaded in the following nodes:
- Load Checkpoint Node
- VAE Node
- AnimateDiff Node
- Load ControlNet Model Node
Step 6: Configure Image Input
- Place the directory of your split frames in the Load Image Node.
- Specify your desired output resolution.
- If you want to process all frames, set the image load cap to 0. Set it to 16 for limited processing, and it will only handle the first 16 frames.
Step 7: Customize Your Prompt
- Modify the prompt to suit your animation project. Green represents the positive prompt, while red signifies the negative prompt. Customize these prompts to align with your creative vision.
Step 8: Be Patient and Let It Work
Wait patiently as the software processes your frames and creates the animation. Keep in mind that this step can take some time, especially if you have a large number of frames.
Step 9: Review Your Results
Once the process is complete, you’ll have your animated frames and, optionally, a GIF. Note that the GIF quality may be lower than the original frames. Examine the frames and GIF to ensure they meet your expectations.
Step 10: Assemble Your Animation
Now that you have your frames, you can assemble your animation in any way you choose. Feel free to experiment with different parameters, such as model and denoise strength on the KSampler, control nets, and IP adapters. Changing the model for AnimateDiff can also have a significant impact on your results.
