Features of Sora

1. Text-to-Video Capability

As a simple AI text-to-video generator, all you need to create a video is a simple description of what you want to make and input it as prompts. This question-and-answer mode is very similar to ChatGPT.

2. Advanced Generating

6. Video-to-video Editing

Besides generating video from the input prompts, Sora also allows users to edit the video with text prompts. With SDEdit model. Sora can transform the video styles and environment and generate a new video.

How Does Sora Work

Sora uses text-to-video techniques to convert natural language into visual objects. When making a video, Sora will try to understand the meaning and context of the word including the visual part. The, it will extract the keywords and search the elements in its database. Next, it will combine those elements together and make a video. At last, if you have stylish preference, Sora will detect and add relevant filter with style transfer technology.

3. When creating crowded and cluttered scenes, Sora tends to generate unrealistic objects and overlays of different objects.

Risks and Concerns over AI Sora
