TI2V-Zero: Zero-Shot Image Conditioning for Text-to-Video Diffusion Models

1 code implementation CVPR 2024 Haomiao Ni, Bernhard Egger, Suhas Lohit, Anoop Cherian, Ye Wang, Toshiaki Koike-Akino, Sharon X. Huang, Tim K. Marks

To guide video generation with the additional image input, we propose a "repeat-and-slide" strategy that modulates the reverse denoising process, allowing the frozen diffusion model to synthesize a video frame-by-frame starting from the provided image.
