What is Open AI’s Sora? How it Works, Use Cases, Alternatives & More.

Open AI Sora

Open AI is popular for its innovative AI chatbot which helps users do various tasks in a short time. It could be writing an essay, social media BIO, getting ideas on content creation, writing emails and so much more. The company has been working on other innovative products such as DALL.E 3 since the launch of ChatGPT. Sora is their latest product addition.

Sora lets you create high quality videos using simple text prompts. So, simply input your text prompts and you get your desired video. Open AI Sora is currently only offered to designers, filmmakers and visual artists for testing.

Understanding Open AI Sora

Sora creates realistic and imaginative scenes from text instructions. As of now, it can create high quality videos up to a minute long staying in line with the text prompt. But a Sora-generated video can also be extended to make them longer. 

Therefore, Sora has an ability to generate complex scenes with multiple characters, specific types of motion and accurate details of subject and background. It has an understanding of how these things exist in the real world. 

It’s based on the Large Language Model (LLM). Hence, its deep understanding of languages enables it to accurately interpret text prompts and generate irresistible characters with vibrant expressions and emotions. Also, you can get multiple shots within a single video that accurately portray characters and visual style. 

How does AI Sora create videos? 

Sora uses a diffusion model. Firstly, it creates a video with static noise and then removes it over the next many steps. It can generate entire videos all at once. 

It has been given the foresight to use many frames at a time, and hence, the subject remains the same even when it goes out of view temporarily. 

Sora uses a transformer architecture to unlock superior scaling performance. So, all videos and images are represented as collections of smaller units of data called patches. Hence, by unifying the data representation method, the diffusion transformers can be trained on a wider range of visual data that spans different aspect ratios, durations and resolutions. 

Also, it uses the recaptioning technique from Open AI DALL.E 3, which generates highly descriptive captions for the visual training data. Hence, the model can easily follow your text prompts more accurately. 

Apart from generating a video from text prompts and even still images, Sora can extend a video by filling in the missing frames.
