Wow! Disney’s aging and aging AI tool is stunningly realistic

Making actors look older or younger is an eternal challenge for film studios. In the past, this was achieved by rather cumbersome and not always convincing prostheses and make-up effects. That was largely replaced by time-consuming digital VFX techniques, but it seems that Disney is coming up with a game changer.

While publicly available AI image generators are impacting the creative fields, Disney has been working on a studio-grade AI model that can age (and de-age) actors in a way that looks so realistic it’s scary (for more on the use of AI in other creative areas, see Using DALL-E 2).
