This is another result from ToonCrafter, an AI frame interpolator, this time fed with panels from the opening scene of Lighter Chains Volume 5. There's some weird bits of course, but there's a lot of potential here for automating the "boring" parts of an animation where you just need some blocking and idle animations.

As a storyboarding aid, this can also show what amount of limited animation you can get away with - some of the shots work surprisingly well.

I've had some interesting results upscaling the frames from this in stable diffusion, but I want to see if doing some quick fixes to the animations or training a lora on the source panels can help things.

Also I realized I named this "Lighter-Chains-4-ToonCrafter" when it is based on LC5...

I mean, yeah, I could talk about all the things that are weird about this, but... who the fuck cares? Good, ethical use of these programs could do a LOT for the animation industry without harming the jobs of animators. Stuff still needs to be drawn and adjusted. Perhaps just with less tedium.

I think it's a good thing you're experimenting with this. Though, since I'm not part of the art community, I mostly say that because it seems to be a thing you're passionate about. I hope you find ways to use these tools to make things more fun for you.
