Oracle #midjourney v4.alpha
@Morgunin @ceoln If you see the tags #Midjourney #DallE or #StableDifusion etc it is more or less obvious. But personally I add more. I bet you have seen my experiments and I always add #ai #ki #generated as tags, too.
This presumes that I have delved deeply enough into this technology to recognize these names. I haven’t, and I’m currently loathe to do this for several reasons.
Thank you for letting me know, though. Now I at least recognize the names. :) I’m not sure that I‘ve seen your experiments. I tend to filter #ai and related content.
I understand where you’re coming from. Most artists I’ve spoken to have zero issue with me as GM using a pic for my private game at the table with my buddies.
From what I’ve gathered, most do take issue with people using their product for public purposes/revenue without recompense, such as feeding it into an ai without authorization in order for it to generate images based on their work. They see this as intellectual theft. That’s why I try to steer clear of it.
@Morgunin @ceoln well it is not that easy. I start with a simple prompt, try variations, add new words to the prompt and after a few pictures I sometimes end with what I want for a scene in the campaign. But sometimes there are, to quote Bob Ross, happy little accidents that lead even to more beautiful experiences and results. And sometimes it inspired me to add something to the written story of my rpg campaign.
@Morgunin @ceoln I think of it more like FM Synthesis where sine waves, carriers and modulators, are connected through different algorithms, spiced with advanced digital wave table synthesis. Well, I love synthesizers and I really want to see this technology in a playable instrument. Cause sound should be the next level.
I get the analogy. That’s fair enough, I suppose. I just think there’s a difference in how the algorithms in a synthesizer function, versus how they work in an AI environment. I’m just not sure the programmers of a synthesizer upload a ton of musical recordings from their favorite musicians, so anyone can just type in they want a „Rocking Drinking Tune“ and get a finished song as a result.
@Frank @Morgunin I used to make generative music years ago; no learning directly from other sources; I would just read books on music theory and composition, and write code. :) Mostly sounded awful, sometimes was (relatively) delightful. I keep meaning to get back into that, although General MIDI seems very 90s these days. :)
