2D Images Rendered in 3D using AI (Python)
With the help of machine learning I took 2-Dimensional World of Warcraft Wallpapers and made them look like 3D. The effect that is created is called the "Dolly zoom" effect, and it results in the creation of a "parallax". Parallax is an effect where the background content (i.e. an image) is moved at a different speed than the foreground content. The AI is filling in assumed details where the parallax shifted away from known data. This means that the AI is creating the parallax without user input. After I created the desired effect the only thing left to do was edit it together in a way that best showcases the brilliance of machine learning. With the help of 4K render upscaling I managed to make the video sharper than it's original 950x540p resolution. Down below you can see the finished result.
