  • Holding on to my papers here. 📜 Great video Niko!

    • Look, its dr karolaihohraifarhirr (never get your name spelled right :v)

    • This is my Dream Collab. Károly likes CG where defenceless bunnies are mashed into pieces, Niko and the crew like doing the smashing. Gold.

    • In a couple of papers down the line

    • He said the line Pog

    • What a time to be alive!

  • Nvm its gonna take 2 seconds ;-;

  • When you finish doing something that will take hours and waste your time, you win a candy bar...

  • right, before i continue. he just finished the intro talking about AI......is that shot of him skateboarding/hoverboarding/Idon'tKnowWHATtheFrickThatIs digital??? as like a ''GOTCHA'' betcha thought that was real!! ...its probably real right? the audio is to imperfect to be fake if that makes sense. like it changes depending how close he is to the camera, his voice is shaking from the bumbs iin the ground, its got that outdoors sound, as opposed to a voice indoors made to sound outdoors,and just.....loads of other things. the reason i ask, is cuz when i paused it, it looked like his outline around him is weird, he really does look like he's been cut out.........i swear, if the intro is real, then i've watched too many of these today. ok, on with the vid.

  • i love the gits ending!

  • The artifacts from the AI rotoscoping looks just like DLSS. On WarThunder, DLSS leaves trails behind antennae on tanks just like the floating chunk that didn’t get cut out.

  • How did you not use Mocha Pro to create the cleanplates for the robot shots?

  • 1/4 of this video is a squarespace add....

  • Wait, i thought clint quit?

  • As much as I understand why people think this kind of thing would threaten their jobs, it seems misguided in this particular instance. As they say all the time, they are VFX *artists* - so streamlining creativity would let these folks concentrate on exactly what attracted them to the industry in the first place. Think of it another way. Whether a feature film takes a year or a month to create, it still will only take two hours to *consume* . Now, obviously individual consumers have more content available to us than we could ever hope to see in our lifetimes already. But if you enjoy content from certain creators (like Corridor), after this AI revolution Niko talked about, they'll be able to give you more of *their* stuff - or it'll be even higher quality - or both. I don't see that making artists obsolete or redundant, but instead allowing great creators to capture and keep audiences easier. Just one opinion, which is of course worthless, but there it is anyway.

  • Who had Freedom Gundam on their monitor? (Wasn't a clear shot, but I think that was it...)

  • there is a video in your ad

  • Flow guided video completion was also through runwayml?

  • The strange thing with AI is that it isnt thinking. Its just a big mathematical formular which creates all of this by solving it.

  • Wren sound just the same on helium haha

  • Al does not exist yet today in 2021 its called algorithm or machine learning see when we will create AI will not know how we created it . Unus annus thought us this. love your videos by the

  • you guys will be out of a job soon.

  • 1:47 I like how wren casually has a hellium balloon with him

  • Imagin .. AI learn how to animate .. i mean its posible to understand the Movement of human acting by throwing in an Ai that Searches for EEclone Videos of Walking Human. analyse it per AI to know where the Joints are .. and extract that Data in To a learning algorithm. And your done :D You only have to throw and AI Charakter in.. say run and tadaaa

  • 7:28 It's a magical leoplurodon charlie

  • Greeeaaat video

  • Clint is just chandler but not

  • Is everything done here available in the free version of runway ml? This is insane, I feel like it would be great for a student project i have coming up

  • Damn son Jake is looking fucking shredded

  • Yare yare dawa

  • Yes spot go edit d d d d d d d c c c c c d d d d d d d good spot

  • Dang, vfx artists can like get away with murder. Its scary

  • AI taking our jobs..

  • crazy

  • Where does Wren keep getting helium balloons from? Haha

  • Can you guys do a review of Walking with Dinosaurs and the special effects they did?

  • Roses are red violets are blue when I see Jake I skip two times ahead

  • so the vfrx artists everywhere should be prepared to get fired or not getting a job.

  • You guys should make a competition on who can make the best Bollywood edit of American movies only using footage of the American movies

  • 6:23 song?

  • Win a candy bar.. Everyone: ya... Ohh... Me: is it spiked?

  • I keep reading comments that this tech will put people out of a job. It may in some cases, but overall I don't think it will. We have shots right now that are limited by time and budget (like all shots) and this defines what we end up with in the final product. With these tools, the same team, with the same time and budget, can do a whole lot more. Movies can be made by more of us. Movies can be made quicker. And this means more people will be able to bring their vision to the screens of the World. Multimillion dollar budgets will shrink, while producing the same movie. Or multimillions of dollars will be able to do a lot more. Some said that digital cameras would destroy photography, yet all they did was make it affordable for the masses to be able to shoot, because suddenly they didn't need a darkroom, chemicals, and money. I think this tech will do the same. Tons of folks will be able to put their sci-fi vision onto a screen who previously would have had no chance because of the cost.

  • This is proof positive that VFX is still very much alive and well; It's just that it will be in a different incarnation as all.

  • Matthew 25:31-46 New International Version (NIV) The Sheep and the Goats 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

  • Acts 2:17-21 New International Version (NIV) 17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[a]

  • I love this video! Very informative. You guys make VFX so interesting

  • That was by far the BEST sponsored segment I've ever seen!!! Congrats! :D

  • Thank you SOOOOOO much I will definitely be using some these techniques for my next film

  • Plot twist: they’re all just one guy that uses deepfake to create them

  • These tools will allow producers to do all the stupid shit they suggest, instantly. God help me.

  • i like how you can see Jake’s soul breaking with every image

  • Epic

  • Wren Inhales helium and his voice barely changes

  • AI is neat but aren’t all cameras going to be shooting depth any minute now anyway?

  • This is gonna be used to get get away with and framing people lol

  • very informative video

  • Amazing

  • ad ends on 9:06

    • THANKS

  • can it be done in mid range amd gpu

  • i feel bad for jake, when he show's up on the screen most of people just jump to the end of the sponsored segment.

  • So cool! I'm slowly getting into video editing and there's just so much damn stuff out there this sort of tool is really encouraging since it's gonna make things a lot easier :D

  • Congrats on the new office !

  • nice video

  • This is actually fantastic. Been a topic for a good while now that the film industry is a mess. Better that people can be creating stuff on their own terms.

  • 0:06 Right... Putin important make him Trump... important make him A probably famous statue YES put that down... Theresa May? She ain't even prime minister any more. She's the least relevant politician yo ever politics

  • React to assassins creed game pls

  • Beesechurger :O !?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • I dont think any ever mentions how good the little sound effects and background music are in these youtube videos! I think they get overlooked by all the badass vfx! Lol

  • 2029 14:25

  • You can camera track and use a 3d plane to paint someone out really well

  • 9:10 you had months for this video because you had to remove clint from each frame? This is insane! Just fire that guy! You'll be so much faster! xD

  • Can you guys please fix the Doctor Who Lazarus Episode Scorpion monster? It was awful 😂

  • I have never seen people so excited for a roto challenge ever!!🤣🤣🤣

  • Exciting indeed! Great to see the examples and looking forward to more.

  • Can I comment something?

  • 0:08 hey, look its my monitor

  • ZGMF-X20A !!! 1:37

  • This is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • "It's a tool" it's not sentient or anything. Yes and in the history of ever. Never has anybody used a tool to hurt anybody. i see no problem here carry on with the tool that can do anything you can do as a individual better.

  • Great way to present the different techniques. I've always been curious how they stack up against each other. Exciting times indeed!

    • @Mohamed Farhan and coffee

    • The real question is, Can AI create a donut???

    • Just 14 likes?

    • Are you here from the newsletter ?

  • I came for thumbnail

  • 14:24 man said “yet” 😶

  • Is flow guided video completion something that can be run on a Windows machine?

  • Wow

  • I really enjoyed this video. Niko, your enthusiasm in straightforward and informative. The whole crew inspires me, even the advertising segment! It's rewarding to know you guys can all bust some ass in Smash but also get sponsors and shine a little light and a little levity on the different processes and history that fuel our creative collective. Keep up the good work, I'll keep tuning in. Cheers!

  • The real advantage is the fact that you can train the AI on a really good computer with billions of data point then execute the perfected AI on a machine that is not as good to get the same result but with just a longer execution than the super machine used to train it

  • I’m a VFX artist, and my job is doing camera tracks and layout. I’m scared!

  • Can we get your opinion on the Sci fi short "Slice Of Life"


  • Kudos for GITS in the outro. It's amazing how far we have come.

  • Call Ian Hubert for upcoming VFX react

  • eeclone.info/glo/t6DRgoGGgJ2Hz2U/video

  • 3:54

  • Please review the exigency

  • We need help solving an argument in our household! How tall is Peter?

  • Sadly, there are many, many sinister applications of this technology.

  • 1:36 "whoever finishes first gets a candy bar" But that isn't fair because some of the competitors are AI, and what can a computer do with even a lifetime supply of chocolate? haha get it because it's a reference to Willy Wonka and they made a gory VFX edit of that movie recently haha full circle

  • Hello corridor crew , I haven't found any good tutorials on cg transition which I really wanted to learn .. if u guys could please make one tutorial (sort of from basic) on how to transition from real character to cg and vice-versa....... PLEASE GUY I WANT LEARN THIS ......

  • Like deep faking a “Presidential Inauguration”... 🤨

  • Never being More entertained by Jake adds before, then this time around 😀😀😀

  • the image generating software is awesome! If a machine could learn to replicate a specific style and then we mocap a scene, we could potentially get that hand drawn anime style effortlessly, of course the tech is a long ways off, (we've seen the snapchat filter where the style changes based on angle) but it's there and has tons of potential!

  • Nobody: Wren: *Inhales balloon*


  • Guys please do the song " kannodu kanbathellam " from Jeans movie - Tollywood

  • Guys please react to this trailer!!!! eeclone.info/glo/lKjNoYSpn5ppum0/video
