ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 Description

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 integrates DepthAnythingV2 models into ComfyUI, enabling automatic model downloads to enhance depth-related functionalities within the ComfyUI framework.

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 Introduction

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 is an extension designed to enhance the capabilities of ComfyUI by integrating advanced depth estimation features. This extension leverages the powerful Depth Anything V2 model to provide highly accurate and detailed monocular depth estimation from images. For AI artists, this means you can generate depth maps that add a new dimension to your artwork, enabling more realistic and immersive visual effects.

The main features of ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 include:

  • Fine-grained Depth Details: Capture intricate details in depth maps, surpassing the capabilities of previous versions and other models.
  • Robustness: Achieve consistent and reliable depth estimation across a variety of scenes and conditions.
  • Efficiency: Enjoy faster processing times, making it practical for real-time applications and large projects. By using ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2, you can solve common problems such as creating realistic shadows, enhancing 3D effects, and improving the overall depth perception in your digital art.

How ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 Works

At its core, ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 uses a machine learning model trained to estimate depth from a single image. Think of it as giving your 2D images a sense of 3D space. The model has been trained on a vast dataset of synthetic and real images, allowing it to understand and predict depth with high accuracy.

Here's a simple analogy: Imagine looking at a photograph and being able to tell which objects are closer to you and which are farther away. ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 does this automatically by analyzing the image and generating a depth map, where different shades represent different distances.

The extension works by:

  1. Analyzing the Image: It takes your input image and processes it using the Depth Anything V2 model.
  2. Generating the Depth Map: The model predicts the depth for each pixel in the image, creating a grayscale map where lighter areas are closer and darker areas are farther away.
  3. Outputting the Result: The depth map can then be used in various ways, such as enhancing 3D effects, creating realistic lighting, or integrating into 3D models.

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 Features

Fine-Grained Depth Details

This feature allows the model to capture intricate details in the depth map, making your images look more realistic. For example, fine textures on surfaces and subtle variations in depth are accurately represented.


The model is designed to work well across different types of scenes, whether indoor or outdoor, and under various lighting conditions. This means you can rely on it to produce consistent results, regardless of the complexity of the scene.


ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 is optimized for speed, making it significantly faster than previous versions and other models like Marigold and Geowizard. This efficiency is particularly beneficial when working on large projects or when real-time processing is required.


You can adjust various settings to fine-tune the depth estimation to your specific needs. For instance, you can control the scale of the depth map or apply different pre-trained models depending on the scene.

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 Models

ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 includes several pre-trained models, each optimized for different scenarios:

  • Indoor Models: These models are fine-tuned for indoor scenes, capturing the nuances of interior spaces.
  • Outdoor Models: Optimized for outdoor environments, these models handle natural landscapes and urban settings effectively.
  • Metric Depth Models: These models provide metric depth estimation, which is useful for applications requiring precise depth measurements. By choosing the appropriate model for your scene, you can achieve the best possible results. For example, using an indoor model for a room scene will yield more accurate depth details compared to using an outdoor model.

Troubleshooting ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2

Common Issues and Solutions

  1. Blurry Depth Maps:
  • Solution: Ensure you are using the correct model for your scene. Indoor models for indoor scenes and outdoor models for outdoor scenes.
  1. Slow Processing Times:
  • Solution: Check your system's performance and ensure it meets the recommended specifications. Also, try using a more lightweight model if available.
  1. Inconsistent Depth Estimation:
  • Solution: Make sure the input image is of good quality and well-lit. Poor image quality can affect the accuracy of depth estimation.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Can I use ComfyUI-DepthAnythingV2 with any image?
  • A: Yes, the extension is designed to work with a wide range of images, but the quality of the input image can affect the results.
  • Q: How do I choose the right model for my project?
  • A: Consider the type of scene you are working with (indoor or outdoor) and select the corresponding model. For precise depth measurements, use the metric depth models.
