The Future. Kaiber’s new mobile app hopes to put the power of an animation studio in your pocket, letting users generate customizable music videos from a variety of open source animation styles. With a host of big names lending credibility by using the tools themselves, Kaiber may spawn a wave of popular animated visualizers from indie artists… inspiring major artists to tap professional animation studios for their videos in an effort to jump on the trend.
Kaiber’s mobile app allows users to add their music and then use text, images, and videos as prompts for AI-generated, animated music videos — all edited in sync using a feature dubbed, “Audio Reactivity.”
- The videos can be generated into two styles: “Flipbook (a frame-by-frame effect) or “Motion” (a more fluid style) — although there are several variations within them.
- Users can then customize the camera movement within the videos and download the finished product in whatever aspect ratio they need for different social platforms.
- Users who subscribe to one of the three paid versions will own the videos they generate, while those using a free version will be able to use the content but unable to monetize it (they’ll also have a logo watermark).
Kaiber already boasts over 2 million users, including some high-profile acts like Linkin Park and Kid Cudi, who have used the platform for official videos. As part of the mobile app rollout, the company is also rolling out a “Create with” feature that uses animation styles developed by three independent musicians — one being Kaiber’s co-founder and CTO, Eric Gao.
Talk about building an app that you yourself would use.
