How to Convert Videos to Animation Using AI for Free

Convert Video to Anime

Creating animated videos is tough. But what if we tell you that it doesn’t require special software or skills? With the help of new AI tools, you can turn any video into an animated one with a few clicks. You can further tweak those animated videos after editing them in your favorite app.

We have tried a bunch of free AI video-to-animation converters. While most of them get the job done, they ask for money to unlock a certain feature. However, we found a Discord bot called DomoAI that does the job perfectly for free.

Getting Started With DomoAI

1. Open the DomoAI website and click on the Start in Discord button.

Either on your server’s channel or on the DomoAI server’s generate-video channel, the process of converting a video to animation is the same.

2. Upload the video and press the spacebar to give a prompt. You can upload any video supported by Discord, but DomoAI can convert the first 5 seconds.

3. In the prompt, give a detailed explanation of what’s happening in the video. This will help the AI to understand the video and process it faster.

5. Here select the Refer to source video more option or Refer to my prompt more option.

  • If you choose the Refer to source video more option, the generated output will take more input from the original video.
  • If you choose the Refer to my prompt more option, the generated output takes more clues from the prompt you have provided which are not even in the original video.

Other Features of DomoAI

Other than changing the video’s style, DomoAI also has other features and is also available for free.

1. Use /animate slash code to convert images to videos.

2. /gen slash code can be used to generate images with a prompt.

3. Finally /real slash code is used to turn an anime photo into a realistic photo.

Animating Video

The animated video converted by DomoAI is not completely perfect and most of the time it does not reflect the same facial features. However, if you prefer to get an animated video of any style, now you can easily record a video and convert it into an animation in a couple of minutes.
