The term machine learning has been becoming more and more relevant in the field of computer graphics. One of the artistic applications that has really sparked my interest is Style Transfer.

Neural Style Transfer is a method of transferring a style of one image to another image using Machine Learning. Video Style Transfer also includes temporal consistency – meaning, there is no flickering inbetween frames.

It was always a bit too much effort to get started however since my home setup is Windows based and ML has been traditionally “locked” to Linux.
But my girlfriend and her University team was in the process of creating a short film around the topic of depression. They really wanted to show the depression of the protagonist by displaying him in another world.

SideFX invited me over to present the work I’ve done at the Houdini Hive Worldwide, where I go into more detail. Check it out!
