Is there any way i can tweak the colors dynamically through another blueprint? I tried with the "get all actors of class" function and setting the colors of the clouds by a timeline, everything else connected to the timeline does its thing but the volumetric clouds wouldn't change. Are the properties somehow fix?

Yeah this is good but it doenst capture the 2d look it still looks 3d. How about copying the movement of 2d animation because this looks way too smooth. 1 example is using the classic by twos which most studios do or also use 24 fps to really capture the 2d feel

AI Generates Nude Portraits

What’s your take on AI art? How long will it take for robots to generate gallery-worthy pieces? It appears that now AI algorithms can even create nude portraits. AI researcher Robbie Barrat posted on Twitter a number of odd artificial intelligence-generated nude portraits, which look kind of scary. The researcher used a so-called Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) and mixed it with thousands of nude portraits to then ask it make some new.

“Usually the machine just paints people as blobs of flesh with tendrils and limbs randomly growing out – I think it’s really surreal. I wonder if that’s how machines see us,” Barrat said on Twitter

According to Barra, the GAN uses two neural networks, a generator, and a discriminator for such tasks. These mechanisms compete against each other to improve final results. Well, it might take some time to generate something not that creepy. 

“In this case, the generator keeps generating fleshy blobs that fool the discriminator pretty well, so overall they stop getting better at painting.”

The images from the researcher’s Twitter page show oddly shaped women in various poses, mostly represented in an abstract way. It is worth mentioning that the heads and faces come with a similar yellow and purple textures. Barrat couldn’t give a reason for that. 

The results are far from perfection, of course, but that’s just a glimpse at the future of AI-based art, so we should all be excited.
