  • [2023/09/25] Release MotionLoRA and its model zoo, enabling camera movement controls! Please download the MotionLoRA models (74 MB per model, available at Google Drive / HuggingFace / CivitAI ) and save them to the models/MotionLoRA folder. Example: python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/v2/5-RealisticVision-MotionLoRA.yaml

  • [2023/09/10] New Motion Module release! mm_sd_v15_v2.ckpt was trained on larger resolution & batch size, and gains noticeable quality improvements. Check it out at Google Drive / HuggingFace / CivitAI and use it with configs/inference/inference-v2.yaml. Example: python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/v2/5-RealisticVision.yaml Here is a qualitative comparison between mm_sd_v15.ckpt (left) and mm_sd_v15_v2.ckpt (right):

  • GPU Memory Optimization, ~12GB VRAM to inference

  • User Interface: Gradio, A1111 WebUI Extension sd-webui-animatediff (by @continue-revolution)
  • Google Colab: Colab (by @camenduru)

Common Issues


Please ensure the installation of xformer that is applied to reduce the inference memory.

Various resolution or number of frames

Currently, we recommend users to generate animation with 16 frames and 512 resolution that are aligned with our training settings. Notably, various resolution/frames may affect the quality more or less.

How to use it without any coding

1) Get lora models: train lora model with A1111 based on a collection of your own favorite images (e.g., tutorials English, Japanese, Chinese) or download Lora models from Civitai.

2) Animate lora models: using gradio interface or A1111 (e.g., tutorials English, Japanese, Chinese)

3) Be creative together with other techniques, such as super resolution, frame interpolation, music generation, etc.

Animating a given image

We totally agree that animating a given image is an appealing feature, which we would try to support officially in the future. For now, you may enjoy other efforts from the talesofai.

Contributions from community

Contributions are always welcome!! The dev branch is for community contributions. As for the main branch, we would like to align it with the original technical report :)

Setups for Inference

Prepare Environment

We updated our inference code with xformers and a sequential decoding trick. Now AnimateDiff takes only ~12GB VRAM to inference, and run on a single RTX3090 !!

git clone https://github.com/guoyww/AnimateDiff.git
cd AnimateDiff

conda env create -f environment.yaml
conda activate animatediff

Download Base T2I & Motion Module Checkpoints

We provide two versions of our Motion Module, which are trained on stable-diffusion-v1-4 and finetuned on v1-5 seperately. It’s recommanded to try both of them for best results.

git lfs install
git clone https://huggingface.co/runwayml/stable-diffusion-v1-5 models/StableDiffusion/

bash download_bashscripts/0-MotionModule.sh

You may also directly download the motion module checkpoints from Google Drive / HuggingFace / CivitAI, then put them in models/Motion_Module/ folder.

Prepare Personalize T2I

Here we provide inference configs for 6 demo T2I on CivitAI. You may run the following bash scripts to download these checkpoints.

bash download_bashscripts/1-ToonYou.sh
bash download_bashscripts/2-Lyriel.sh
bash download_bashscripts/3-RcnzCartoon.sh
bash download_bashscripts/4-MajicMix.sh
bash download_bashscripts/5-RealisticVision.sh
bash download_bashscripts/6-Tusun.sh
bash download_bashscripts/7-FilmVelvia.sh
bash download_bashscripts/8-GhibliBackground.sh


After downloading the above peronalized T2I checkpoints, run the following commands to generate animations. The results will automatically be saved to samples/ folder.

python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/1-ToonYou.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/2-Lyriel.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/3-RcnzCartoon.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/4-MajicMix.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/5-RealisticVision.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/6-Tusun.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/7-FilmVelvia.yaml
python -m scripts.animate --config configs/prompts/8-GhibliBackground.yaml

To generate animations with a new DreamBooth/LoRA model, you may create a new config .yaml file in the following format:

  inference_config: "[path to motion module config file]"

    - "models/Motion_Module/mm_sd_v14.ckpt"
    - "models/Motion_Module/mm_sd_v15.ckpt"

    - path:  "[path to MotionLoRA model]"
      alpha: 1.0
    - ...

  dreambooth_path: "[path to your DreamBooth model .safetensors file]"
  lora_model_path: "[path to your LoRA model .safetensors file, leave it empty string if not needed]"

  steps:          25
  guidance_scale: 7.5

    - "[positive prompt]"

    - "[negative prompt]"

Then run the following commands:

python -m scripts.animate --config [path to the config file]

Steps for Training


Before training, download the videos files and the .csv annotations of WebVid10M to the local mechine. Note that our examplar training script requires all the videos to be saved in a single folder. You may change this by modifying animatediff/data/dataset.py.


After dataset preparations, update the below data paths in the config .yaml files in configs/training/ folder:

  csv_path:     [Replace with .csv Annotation File Path]
  video_folder: [Replace with Video Folder Path]
  sample_size:  256

Other training parameters (lr, epochs, validation settings, etc.) are also included in the config files.


To train motion modules

torchrun --nnodes=1 --nproc_per_node=1 train.py --config configs/training/training.yaml

To finetune the unet’s image layers

torchrun --nnodes=1 --nproc_per_node=1 train.py --config configs/training/image_finetune.yaml

Gradio Demo

We have created a Gradio demo to make AnimateDiff easier to use. To launch the demo, please run the following commands:

conda activate animatediff
python app.py

By default, the demo will run at localhost:7860.

Here we demonstrate several best results we found in our experiments.


Model:Counterfeit V3.0

Model:Realistic Vision V2.0

Model: majicMIX Realistic

Model:RCNZ Cartoon
