A bit like Google Maps showing you the best route with the shortest drive or the one most scenic right into the lake ;- ).

I know this is likely an 'Office' reference... but still a bit disconcerting knowing you've been driving around Norway a lot recently. Are the machines still dry, Juraj?

Heh I had mostly this recent woman from Hawaii in mind :- D

AI is not replacing anyone really. BIM was the next  big thing years ago but no matter how big the project all involved in any meeting are folding out A1 or A0 sized prints to discuss. At least that is my experience. Even when clients hire human intelligence or experience they still do what they want regardless of the outcome...

But aren't those printed drawings from BIM?

I can imagine architect bringing simple BIM (even SketchUp) model on iPad to meeting and just letting the AI quickly illustrate it in style.

The team must definitely incorporate several AI features into the software within the next six months. For example, creating PBR materials with the help of AI. These materials could be modified later just as if we had created them ourselves. Then, noise reduction using AI, animation creation using AI, which is further accelerated by the new AI noise reduction. Environment creation could also be possible (trees, grass). Undoubtedly, a new era is beginning in 3D design as well.

About CGI
Soon your 'Windoes' and its fellow agents gonna make stuff for you directly, w/o any 3rd party app, and Adobe suit 'dreams' already... none can beat "AI" head-on - especially after one starts communicating w/ it subjectively (it's grandiose deception) :P think!&do 'cuz machines don't (are merely determinated objects to mimic and fool).

Enjoy The Comfy bubble (;

I had wondered about the way AI could change rendering specifically and i wondered if we could end up with specialised models (the ai kind) that are hyper specialised packages that know how to render a specific object or surface style very very well. It could understand placement data from the 3d scene by using very basic placeholder objects for layout. Understands where the camera is, and lights are. And then uses lots and lots of specific stable diffusion models to generate the final image knitting it together mask by mask like an ID map.

I'm currently using it as a tool for archviz in a couple of scenarios:

1. place 3D people in the final render and then using stable diff plugin in photoshop to generate "real" people in place of the 3D ones. Works very well and is wonderful in cases where client has very specific demands i.e. dockside workers in various genders, ethnicities wearing life vests and workwear (good luck finding cutouts or even enough images like that where posture, light etc is suited to then start cutting out). Also fine for just replacing with "normal" people in renders to avoid the 3D people look.

2. txt2image or img2img to produce references to discuss material/architecture on objects that are still just volumes/white boxes). Way faster than having to model and texture until client actually knows what they want.

3. for projects/proposals where the brief is more open the above combined with the inpaint function of SD is great to generate variations to the environment (in this example it was a big office complex and a new park was to be put in front, but the park hadn't been designed yet. I did a rough landscape and placed some trees/elements and light for a nice composition and could then generate more lush/detailed variations of the environment via inpaint to discuss which way we should go design wise before I start modelling the "real thing". If I had more ram on my GPU to make it higher res, I could have just used the generated results from SD (even taking some variations and photobash the best elements into each other). Now I might try to upscale and then rework the image by 512x512px frames and see if it can add more details.

TLDR: it is and will be an amazing tool for us as archviz artist. It might someday be the new "enscape" where clients themselves can get pretty good images with a couple of clicks/prompts, but in the meantime I still think there's a place for even higher end or more creative images from us :)

Neat! can you show an example of before and after? Even cropped images are fine if they aren't public

I seen one recently on FB from an artist named Matt Hallett. Apparently using the technique 'in-painting'. Think you can find his page under: Matt Hallett Visual

This was his before Image

This was his AI replacement

Ive been following those too. He is charging for a few courses on how to do it but id like to hear from others whether the pricetag is worth it.
