New AI video generation features 🤖 🪄

Yesterday, Luma AI unveiled new features for Dream Machine. It announced an Extend feature and new editing capabilities for its video generation model.

What’s up with Extend?

It allows you to increase the length of your video in style that matches your original content.

“Extend is an advanced system that is aware of what's happening in your video and extends it in a consistent way to follow instruction.“

— Luma AI

Cool. Anything else?

Luma announced upcoming video editing capabilities. You can change the background, objects, foregrounds, characters, and more in generated videos. They are “coming soon.”


You can also remove the video watermarks if you’re in the Standard, Pro, or Premium tiers.

Automatic sound effects 🔊 🎛️

Yesterday, Google DeepMind unveiled V2A (video-to-audio). It analyzes videos and automatically generates music and sound effects for them.

What does it do?

V2A generates music, voices, sound effects, and more that “matches the characters and tone of a video.”

It doesn’t use text prompts?

You can tell it what to generate via text, but V2A is context-aware, so this step is optional.

How does it work?

First, V2A encodes the video. Then it uses a diffusion model to generate audio that matches the video/text prompts. Then it combines the audio and video data.
