free 3D modeling software Blender now supports the AI Stable Diffusion art creator, thanks to the free Stability AI add-on.
Stability AI revealed Blender’s dubbed stability, the text-to-image creator lets users “add AI post-processing effects to presentations”. Working within the 3D software, they can experience scenes without endless reshaping, and create textures, animations, and images through text prompts and tool style presets.
By integrating Stable Diffusion within Blender, the company hopes to streamline the design process, and make tooling more intuitive without investing in dedicated hardware like the high-end ones. graphics processing units And Graphic design laptops.

But the AI tool may also offer an unexpected bonus for creators. Artists, illustrators, and designers who download the extension will be able to use the platform’s image editor to create textures and images.
According to the company, users can go a step further, creating keyframes for all properties and creating animations that “use Blender’s built-in animation system to automate properties in Stable Diffusion.” By entering a text prompt, the tool creates an image using the artist’s existing avatar.
In doing so, Stability for Blender has the potential to sidetrack one of the biggest challenges facing content creators, content distributors, and AI developers: copyright infringement.

with everyone from artists to Getty Images using AI platforms For the illegal use of copyrighted material, using the rendered frames as a starting point for the diffusion process may yet prove a (somewhat) definitive answer to the question “Who owns the art of AI?”
The launch comes just months after the competing AI platform OpenAI has unveiled its 3D modeling tool. The developer said that the POINT-E solution “produces 3D models in just 1-2 minutes on a single GPU”, while acknowledging that it “falls short of the latest technology in terms of sample quality”.
