Some #Midjourney V5 findings 🔥
Finally! Full-blown cinematic aspect ratios!
2.4:1 widescreen cinema standard ✅
2.76:1 ultra panavision 70 ✅
you can go up to 14:1 (!) but: letterboxing seems to set in roughly at ultra widescreen (3.6:1)
However, 3.6:1 (and higher ratios) seems to work better if you drop the cinematic prefixes (cinematic shot, film still, etc.) 🤷♂️🤔
Here it's just scene & style description. 3.6:1, no letterboxing.
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

With #midjourney V4 supporting aspect ratios up to "2:1", here's how you can use them effectively in your #AICinema storytelling. 🎥🔥
Besides being technical requirements for screen sizes, ratios can also be used to create an aesthetic backdrop for your stories. 🎬
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

#AIArt is about to revolutionize #screenwriting! 🤯 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.. 🤔
A thread 🧵
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

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...
