At Myth Studio, we specialise in using innovative techniques to create animations more efficiently. This article will show you how to use the AI tool Midjourney, Kaedim and C4D to get ideas into 3D and animated quickly and easily.
Use Midjourney to create the designs you would like. in this case, the prompt was 'a single terraced building from Warsaw old-town, from a stop-motion style animation, 3d model on white background'
For information on how to use Midjourney, see this guide.
Kaedim is a service that uses machine-learning alongside a human team to quickly turn your images into 3D meshes. Sign up, upload your image and choose how many credits you wish to use. Bare in mind this service is not free, but is very time saving.
Once your mesh is ready, which usually takes an hour or so, download as an OBJ.
Once downloaded, import your OBJ into Cinema4D or another software such as Blender. Repeat the above steps with as many assets as you want and start assembling your scene.
Go back into Midjourney and create textures. Use the command --tile to get the images to come out tiled. For example:
roof tile texture, in the style of egon schiele, dark yellow and amber, romanesque art --tile
Use these textures as diffuse maps in your preferred render engine.
Render your favourite passes and composite in After Effects.. A nice trick is to bring in even more textures or assets from midjourney and compositie them into your scene.
