Local Diffusion


Local Diffusion is a Stable Diffusion based image generator and interpolator running locally and native inside AE.

New: Stable Diffusion XL

We now integrate the latest state-of-the-art image model! Use SDXL for unmatched fidelity, details and photorealism.


Versatile prompting

We have implemented a simple and effective prompting mechanism. Prompts are entered via mask names and can be weighted by the masks opacity.

mechanical orc made of metal parts on the battlefield, trending on artstation, dramatic lighting, firesparks
city 2
futuristic gigantic city, highly detailed, cinematic, photorealistic rendering, digital skyscrapers, flying cars and spaceships



Interpolate prompts

Keyframe the prompts weight to interpolate between objects and find interesting concepts.

Guide creation by source layer

The Source+Text mode allows you to specify a layer which guides the images creation. This way prompting and interpolation can be applied to your own footage.
<- "industrial robot" to "person made of clay"


Full control over generation exposed!

You get full control over the model used, the aspect ratio, guidance scale and the seed. This allows for fast iterations and experimentation.

Easy to use and performant

This is a native port into our ai framework and therefore easy to install and use. Local Diffusion makes use of some state-of-the-art performance optimizations and produces images fast!


Integrated Superresolution

We ship an integrated superresolution ai with the plugin. Up to 3072x3072 pixel output!
