Gain precise, element-by-element compositional control of your Image to Video generations using Gen-2's Motion Brush tool.
1. Generate a preview image in Text to Video mode or upload your image to Gen-2 Image to Video
Text, Image, and Image + Description prompting modes will all give you access to the Motion Brush tool. For Text mode you first need to generate a preview image and then click "use as input" on the image.
2. Click the Motion Brush icon
It will appear as a small paintbrush to the right of Camera Motion. Once clicked, the tool will open above the input module, in its own editor window.
3. Paint over the part of your image you'd like to add motion to
If you make any mistakes or would like to further refine what's selected, you can switch from brush to eraser using the two buttons at the bottom of your input. Additionally, undo and redo buttons at the top of your input image can provide extra flexibility as you try brushing different elements of your image.
3. Choose your motion modifiers and hit save
With a specific element or area selected, it's now up to you to decide how you want that element or area to move. You can control motion in the horizontal (x), vertical (y), and proximity (z) directions. You can select up to one option from each modifier to create your perfect shot. Additionally, make sure to click save. Clicking out of the Motion Brush window without clicking save will result in your selections being lost.
With your selections saved, all that's left to do is to sit back and wait for your generation to complete.
