New Film And TV AI Tool Wonder Studio Launches

Bring computer-generated characters to life with just a camera and artificial intelligence

AI VFX studio Wonder Dynamics has been developing an AI tool for film and television, Wonder Studio. We reported in March that the platform went into closed beta and now the tool has received a full launch, as revealed by Min Choi on Twitter.

Wonder Studio lets artists create movies using CGI characters. The new web-based AI platform doesn’t require users to master complex 3D software. Instead, all artists need to develop films with Wonder Studio is a camera.

There’s no need for actors to wear a motion capture suit to create the CG character’s movements. The AI can analyse footage from a single camera, capture various elements and automatically animate the CG character. Then it simply adds it directly into the scene. Additionally, the AI automates 80 to 90 per cent of the ‘objective’ frame-by-frame VFX work. This frees up time for the artist, who only has to complete the reaming subjective work, which can be done by exporting to software like Maya 3D, Blender and Unreal.

Nikola Todorovic, co-founder and CEO of Wonder Dynamics said, “We are just filmmakers who, like many other artists in our industry, didn’t have a budget for the kind of sci-fi films we wanted to make, so we set out to make AI tools that eliminate huge cost barriers. The tools we developed have enhanced collaboration and broken through the black box we tend to see in generative AI that limits control of the finest details in each shot.”

Electric State

Before its launch, Wonder Studio was already in use by The Russo Brothers for their upcoming 2024 Netflix film, The Electric State.

Joe Russo, filmmaker and advisory board member said, “It’s been fantastic working with the team at Wonder Dynamics on Electric State. It’s highly engaging and incredibly efficient to use state-of-the-art AI on a movie about advanced technology. Wonder Dynamics’ technology is a game changer for filmmakers, and it’s the right step towards a future in which AI can be a powerful and additive tool in an artist’s repertoire. I’m excited to see how this impacts the next generation of filmmakers.”
