Some #Midjourney V5 findings ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Finally! Full-blown cinematic aspect ratios!

2.4:1 widescreen cinema standard โœ…
2.76:1 ultra panavision 70 โœ…

you can go up to 14:1 (!) but: letterboxing seems to set in roughly at ultra widescreen (3.6:1)

#midjourney5 ๐Ÿงต
However, 3.6:1 (and higher ratios) seems to work better if you drop the cinematic prefixes (cinematic shot, film still, etc.) ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿค”
Here it's just scene & style description. 3.6:1, no letterboxing.
despite the letterboxing, exploring 4:1 is fun ... ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŽ‰
Here's a 4:1 image in panorama view. this is raw #midjourneyv5, default quality (--q 1), not bad actually
I mean, that photorealism tendency is next level, right?
#midjourney5 with strong tendency to photorealism ๐Ÿ“ท

same prompt, left: V4, right: V5
Tile mode is back! ๐Ÿ”ฅ Here in 14:1. Max aspect ratio, checked.
The --chaos value seems to vary the styles much more within the initial grid #MidjourneyV5 #midjourney
#Midjourney V5 also gives much better results for homogenous textures, thanks to improved realism & "--tile"

Top left(V4)/right(V5): "grey sandpaper, highly detailed --tile"

Bottom: mossy forest soul & rusty metal (both #midjourneyv5)
photorealistic wide angles and homogenous textures from #Midjourney V5 put into WebVR API to animate in a local browser window
๐Ÿ™ thanks #gpt4

Built this in 1.5 hrs w/ #GPT4 & #Midjourney.
I only have basic JS skills.

The possibilities of ๐Ÿค– &๐Ÿง  co-creation are mind-boggling. ๐ŸŽ‰

Graphics: ๐Ÿค– images &๐Ÿง  curation
Code: ๐Ÿค– HTML/CSS/JS &๐Ÿง  co-debugging
Music: ๐Ÿค– Samples &๐Ÿง  sequencing

Here's how: ๐Ÿงต

I generated the images for the game with #midjourney
Prompted for basic 1:1 images, using the tried and tested combination of "white background" and "--no background" to prep transparent PNGs
Then I used #GPT4 via #ChatGPT & gave it the basic story for the game: Squid-Spaceship having to collect little baby squid astronauts, etc...

Asked the AI to come up with HTML/JS code & CSS, then helped it to debug & adjust mechanics (smooth flight paths, etc..)

And done. โœ… ๐Ÿคฏ

With #midjourney V4 supporting aspect ratios up to "2:1", here's how you can use them effectively in your #AICinema storytelling. ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Besides being technical requirements for screen sizes, ratios can also be used to create an aesthetic backdrop for your stories. ๐ŸŽฌ

E.g. 4:3 (or "1.33:1" in cinema slang) is the "classic ratio" of TV monitors & perfect for scenes that are meant to evoke an "analog TV" vibe
"11:8" ("1.375:1" in cinema slang) also called "Academy ratio" is a standard introduced in 1932.

It's outdated, but still in use as an aesthetic tool. E.g. Wes Anderson used it to differentiate timelines in "Grand Budapest Hotel":

#AIArt is about to revolutionize #screenwriting! ๐Ÿคฏ As AI tools become more intuitive and easy to use, some think production companies might prioritize profit over storytelling & we'll be binging stunningly beautiful visuals paired with incredibly boring plots.. ๐Ÿค”

A thread ๐Ÿงต
1) We could be in for a wild ride here:
As with all technology, there is a risk of it being used in a way that strictly prioritizes profit. AI material might be used to create visually appealing stories that lack depth and originality
2) Yet AI will likely revolutionize screenwriting in a similar way it's currently enhancing visual expression and #AIArt!
Training models with dramaturgical data and narrative finesse is key. And it's already underway ๐Ÿ’ช E.g. Dramatron, check @korymath's ImageImage

Here's a technique for movie concept creation I currently experiment with:

Using #screenwriting devices to prompt #GPT3 for basic story ideas & plots and then using those to generate #midjourney #aiart images depicting key scenes, characters & settings...
Not only is this a huge time saver for #writers when brainstorming or trying out different dramatic scenarios, but you also get images that further spark your imagination...
... and this inspiration goes both ways: images create new approaches to dramaturgical twists or character development, and storytelling devices literally create new perspectives on the story ๐Ÿคฏ

Using AI image tools like @midjourney + @OpenAI for idea generation and plot/character inspiration is a real game-changer for #writers!

The possibilities are immense!
๐Ÿงต for the #writerscommunity
First: Goodbye #writersblock! AI image & text generation let us come up with creative solutions to problems we may have been stuck on for days!

They help us generate new perspectives on

- characters
- ensemble
- plot
- story structure & dramaturgy
- dialogue
- setting
There are plenty of AI text-generation tools out there but they won't magically create stories for you. ๐Ÿช„๐Ÿ–Š

They are awesome for copy & marketing content, but their fictional stories are often basic, repetitive, sometimes contradicting & most importantly lacking YOUR style!
