Master the Art of Prompting with Kaiber: A Comprehensive Guide to Crafting Captivating AI-Generated Videos

Welcome, everyone! Today, we invite you on a fascinating journey to explore the world of AI-generated videos using Kaiber, the extraordinary video creation tool that brings your dreams to life. We’ll guide you through the art of crafting prompts that yield personalized and visually stunning videos, captivating your audience every time.

Prompting 101: Laying the Foundations

Prompts are concise messages directing Kaiber to create your desired video. Kaiber’s AI analyzes your prompt and materializes your vision, allowing you to modify the importance of each element using parentheses and weights.

To begin, let’s focus on a simple and general idea. Start with fewer prompts, concentrating on the core aspects of your desired video, such as the subject or style. This minimalistic approach helps you familiarize yourself with Kaiber’s capabilities and lays the groundwork for the iterative prompting technique discussed later in this guide. As you progress, gradually add more detail to refine your vision and achieve the perfect video output tailored to your preferences.

A helpful structure to consider includes:

Subject, Prepositional Details, Setting, Meta Modifiers, and Styling.

For example, starting with a basic prompt idea featuring a beautiful young woman, you could provide details such as brown hair as a prepositional detail and a full body view as a meta modifier. To influence the entire animation style, you might choose “sunny beach” or “city streets” as your style. As Kaiber processes these inputs, it creates a video that captures the essence of your prompt, such as the young woman with brown hair enjoying a sunny beach or exploring city streets. With this initial result, you can refine your prompt iteratively by adding more details or adjusting the emphasis on specific elements, allowing you to create a video that perfectly matches your vision.

Integrating Details into Your Prompt: Keyword Categories

When crafting a prompt for AI video generation, consider the following categories:

  • Subject: The main focus or character in the video.
  • Medium: The artistic medium or technique used in the video.
  • Style: The overall visual style or genre of the video.
  • Artist: A specific artist whose work may inspire the video.
  • Additional details: Other features or characteristics of the subject or elements in the video.
  • Color: The color scheme or dominant colors in the video.
  • Lighting: The lighting conditions or effects in the video.
These categories can be incorporated into the formula as follows:
 
  • [subject] – Represents the main focus or character in the video.
  • [prepositional details] – Includes Medium, Additional details, and Color, which describe the appearance or features of the subject or other elements in the video.
  • [setting] – Describes the background or environment of the video, including Lighting.
  • [meta modifiers and styling] – Encompasses Style, Artist, Website, and Resolution, which provide further information about the artistic approach, creator, platform, and video quality.

Remember, you don’t need to use all categories in every prompt. Choose the categories that best fit your desired outcome and make your prompt more specific and detailed.

A few examples to inspire you:

  • A charming, raven-haired, male detective with intense green eyes, dressed in a formal suit and tie, standing on a rooftop with a lively city in the background, depicted in a film noir-inspired black and white style.
  • A charismatic, talented street musician, strumming an acoustic guitar, surrounded by a captivated audience in a bustling city square, showcased in a vibrant and lively, documentary-inspired style.
  • A fearless, medieval knight in shining armor, riding a majestic steed, charging towards a towering castle surrounded by lush greenery, portrayed in a vivid and dynamic, fantasy-inspired style.
  • A serene, peaceful yoga practitioner, balancing on one leg in a tree pose, on a tranquil beach at sunrise, with gentle waves lapping the shore, captured in a calm and soothing, mindfulness-inspired style.

Iterative Prompt Building

View prompt building as an iterative process. Start with a simple prompt, concentrating on the subject, medium, and style. Generate a few short video clips to see the results. Most prompts don’t work 100% of the time, so it’s crucial to gauge their statistical performance.

Add no more than two keywords at a time and generate a few clips to assess the effect of the new keywords. By doing this, you can iteratively refine your prompt and enhance the generated output.

Limiting Variation in Generated Videos

To excel in prompt building, you need to think like the AI model, which is essentially a video sampler generating content that humans perceive as legitimate and appealing. The prompt serves as a guide to narrow down the sampling space and produce more specific results.

By adding more descriptive keywords to the prompt, you can reduce variation in the generated videos. For example:

  • “Beach” – A generic prompt that could generate any video featuring a beach.
  • “Beach, sunset sky” – A more specific prompt that generates videos of beaches with a sunset sky in the background.
  • “Drone view of beach, sunset sky” – An even more specific prompt that generates an aerial video of a beach with a sunset sky in the background.
  • “Person walking on beach, drone view, sunset sky” – An even more specific prompt that generates an aerial video of a person walking on a beach with a sunset sky in the background.
  • The more detailed your prompt, the less variation there will be in the generated video clips.

Advanced Techniques: Weighting

Ready to level up your prompting skills? Let’s explore increased and decreased weighting!

To emphasize a specific prompt, use increased weighting. Generally, a number between 1 and 2 works well, but feel free to use higher numbers for even more emphasis. Simply add a colon and the weight number after the prompt, and enclose both in parenthesis. To reduce emphasis, follow the same format but use a decimal number between 0 and 1 after the prompt. The smaller the number, the less emphasis Kaiber will place on that particular prompt. This allows you to fine-tune the focus on various aspects of your video.

In addition to adjusting the emphasis on individual prompts, you can also add weighted modifiers to the end of your prompts for even more granular control over your animation. By using these techniques, you can tailor the animation to your specific vision, ensuring that each element appears just as you intended. This level of customization allows you to create truly unique and personalized AI-generated videos with Kaiber.

By increasing the weight of the “flowing blonde hair” prompt, Kaiber accentuates the subject’s hair movement, creating a more prominent flow in the air. Conversely, by reducing the emphasis on “flowing blonde hair,” Kaiber will downplay the hair’s movement, making it less noticeable and focusing more on other elements within the scene. By adding “red dress” and “crowd” to the end of the prompt, you can introduce these elements into the video and adjust their prominence as needed. This flexibility allows you to achieve the perfect balance of features in your video according to your desired outcome, whether you want to focus on the dancer’s flowing hair, emphasize the vibrant red dress, or bring attention to the energetic crowd.

The term “negative weighting” is a bit of a misnomer, as it doesn’t actually negate any elements. Instead, it’s used to reduce the emphasis on certain aspects of your prompt. To use this technique, add a colon and a decimal number between 0 and 1 after the prompt, and enclose both in parenthesis. The smaller the number, the less emphasis Kaiber will place on that prompt.

By skillfully combining increased and decreased weighting, you can create personalized and nuanced video prompts that perfectly capture your vision.

Controlling Lighting

Lighting significantly influences the quality and mood of your video. Kaiber offers various methods to control lighting to enhance the subject, create depth and dimension, convey emotions, and highlight important details.

The most straightforward way to control lighting is by adding lighting keywords to the prompt. Check out some examples.
