ComfyUI-fastblend Description

ComfyUI-fastblend enhances ComfyUI with nodes for video-to-video processing, including image rebatching and openpose integration, optimizing video editing workflows.

ComfyUI-fastblend Introduction

ComfyUI-fastblend is an extension designed to enhance the video rendering capabilities of AI artists using ComfyUI. This extension provides tools to smooth out videos, remove flicker, and create fluent animations from a series of keyframes. It is particularly useful for artists looking to produce high-quality, coherent videos from individual frames or keyframes, making the animation process more efficient and visually appealing.

How ComfyUI-fastblend Works

ComfyUI-fastblend operates on the principle of blending and interpolating video frames to create smooth transitions. It uses a model-free algorithm, meaning it doesn't rely on pre-trained models but instead uses mathematical techniques to achieve its results. The extension offers two main functionalities:

  1. Smooth Video: This function processes each frame of a video to ensure smooth transitions, reducing flicker and creating a coherent flow.
  2. Interpolate KeyFrame: This function selects specific keyframes and interpolates the frames in between, allowing for smooth transitions without needing to render every single frame. By adjusting parameters such as accuracy, window size, and batch size, users can control the smoothness and quality of the output video.

ComfyUI-fastblend Features

Smooth Video

  • Accuracy: Determines the precision of the blending process. Higher values yield better results but may increase processing time. For most situations, a value of 1 is sufficient.
  • Window Size: Controls how many frames are considered for blending at a time. Larger window sizes result in smoother videos.
  • Minimum Patch Size: The size of the patches used for matching during blending. Must be an odd number. Larger sizes improve quality but require more computation.
  • Number of Iterations: The number of times the blending process is repeated. More iterations can improve the result but also increase processing time.
  • Guide Weight: Influences how much the motion features of the guide video affect the style video.
  • Batch Size: Affects the speed of processing. Larger batch sizes speed up the process but require more VRAM.

Interpolate KeyFrame

  • Accuracy: Similar to the smooth video feature, it controls the precision of interpolation.
  • Window Size: Determines the number of frames used for interpolation.
  • Minimum Patch Size: The size of patches for matching during interpolation. Larger sizes improve quality.
  • Number of Iterations: The number of times the interpolation process is repeated.
  • Guide Weight: Determines the influence of motion features on the interpolated frames.
  • Batch Size: Affects the speed of interpolation. Larger batch sizes require more VRAM but are faster.

Additional Nodes

  • Rebatch Image: Optimizes the rendering of images, especially useful for fastblend. It can significantly speed up the process by allowing simultaneous rendering of multiple images.
  • MyOpenPose: Combines the strengths of different pose detection models to improve accuracy, especially in recognizing back poses.

ComfyUI-fastblend Models

ComfyUI-fastblend does not rely on pre-trained models but uses a model-free algorithm. This approach allows for flexibility and adaptability in various video rendering scenarios without the need for specific model training.

What's New with ComfyUI-fastblend

March 28, 2024 Update

  • New Node: Alert When Finished: Plays a sound when the node finishes processing. You can specify the path to a sound file (e.g., ...\custom_nodes\ComfyUI-fastblend\drop.wav).
  • New Node: Merge Image List: A faster alternative to the "Image List to Image Batch" node, improving the speed of merging image lists.

Troubleshooting ComfyUI-fastblend

Common Issues and Solutions

  1. Video Not Smooth Enough:
  • Increase the window_size and num_iter parameters.
  • Ensure minimum_patch_size is set to an appropriate odd number.
  1. High VRAM Usage:
  • Reduce the batch_size.
  • Lower the window_size.
  1. Slow Processing:
  • Increase the batch_size if VRAM allows.
  • Reduce the num_iter for faster but potentially lower-quality results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the best accuracy setting?
  • For most situations, an accuracy of 1 is sufficient. Increase it if higher precision is needed.
  • How do I choose the right window size?
  • Larger window sizes result in smoother videos but require more computation. Start with a moderate size and adjust based on your needs.
  • Why is my video still flickering?
  • Ensure that the minimum_patch_size is set correctly and try increasing the num_iter.
