ComfyUI Frame Interpolation Description

ComfyUI Frame Interpolation enhances animation by using the KSampler node to gradually increase denoising, resulting in smoother transitions between frames. This efficient method improves visual quality in animated sequences.

ComfyUI Frame Interpolation Introduction

ComfyUI-Frame-Interpolation is an extension designed to enhance video frame interpolation within the ComfyUI framework. Video frame interpolation is a technique used to generate intermediate frames between existing ones, creating smoother motion in videos. This extension provides a set of custom nodes that facilitate this process, making it easier for AI artists to create high-quality, fluid animations from a series of images or video frames.

Key Features:

  • Improved Memory Management: The extension now uses less RAM and VRAM, making it more efficient.
  • Scheduling Multiplier Values: VFI nodes now accept scheduling multiplier values, allowing for more control over the interpolation process.

How ComfyUI Frame Interpolation Works

At its core, ComfyUI-Frame-Interpolation works by taking two or more frames and generating intermediate frames to create a smooth transition between them. This is achieved through various Video Frame Interpolation (VFI) models that predict the motion between frames and generate the necessary intermediate frames.

Basic Principles:

  1. Input Frames: You provide the extension with at least two frames (or more for certain models).
  2. Interpolation Models: The extension uses different VFI models to predict and generate intermediate frames.
  3. Output Frames: The generated frames are combined to create a smooth video sequence. Think of it like creating a flipbook animation where you only draw the key frames, and the extension fills in the gaps to make the motion appear fluid.

ComfyUI Frame Interpolation Features

Nodes:

  • KSampler Gradually Adding More Denoise: Efficiently adds denoise to frames.
  • GMFSS Fortuna VFI: Specialized for anime video frame interpolation.
  • IFRNet VFI: Intermediate Feature Refine Network for efficient frame interpolation.
  • IFUnet VFI: Uses RIFE with IFUNet, FusionNet, and RefineNet.
  • M2M VFI: Many-to-many splatting for efficient video frame interpolation.
  • RIFE VFI (4.0 - 4.9): Real-Time Intermediate Flow Estimation for video frame interpolation.
  • FILM VFI: Frame Interpolation for Large Motion.
  • Sepconv VFI: Uses adaptive separable convolution for video frame interpolation.
  • AMT VFI: All-Pairs Multi-Field Transforms for efficient frame interpolation.
  • Make Interpolation State List: Creates a list of states for interpolation.
  • STMFNet VFI: Requires at least 4 frames, can only do 2x interpolation for now.
  • FLAVR VFI: Same conditions as STMFNet.

Customization:

  • Scheduling Multiplier Values: Adjust the interpolation process by setting scheduling multipliers.
  • Memory Management: Improved to use less RAM and VRAM, making the process more efficient.

What's New with ComfyUI Frame Interpolation

Recent Updates:

  • Improved Memory Management: The extension now uses less RAM and VRAM, making it more efficient.
  • Scheduling Multiplier Values: VFI nodes now accept scheduling multiplier values, providing more control over the interpolation process. These updates enhance the performance and flexibility of the extension, making it more user-friendly and efficient for AI artists.

Troubleshooting ComfyUI Frame Interpolation

Common Issues and Solutions:

  1. Out of Memory Errors:
  • Solution: Use the clear_cache_after_n_frames setting to avoid running out of memory. Decreasing this value reduces the chance of memory issues but increases processing time.
  1. Installation Issues on Windows:
  • Solution: Run install.bat instead of install-cupy.py or python install.py to resolve issues related to cupy.
  1. Non-CUDA Device Support:
  • Solution: If you don't have an NVIDIA card, try using the taichi ops backend. Install it by running install.bat on Windows or pip install taichi on Linux, and change the ops_backend value from cupy to taichi in config.yaml.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Q: How do I load images for interpolation?
  • A: Use the LoadImages node from or .
  • Q: What if I only have two or three frames for STMFNet or FLAVR?
  • A: Use Load Images -> Other VFI node (FILM is recommended) with multiplier=4 -> STMFNet VFI/FLAVR VFI.
