Single files

Diffusers supports loading pretrained pipeline (or model) weights stored in a single file, such as a ckpt or safetensors file. These single file types are typically produced from community trained models. There are three classes for loading single file weights:

  • FromSingleFileMixin supports loading pretrained pipeline weights stored in a single file, which can either be a ckpt or safetensors file.
  • FromOriginalVAEMixin supports loading a pretrained AutoencoderKL from pretrained ControlNet weights stored in a single file, which can either be a ckpt or safetensors file.
  • FromOriginalControlnetMixin supports loading pretrained ControlNet weights stored in a single file, which can either be a ckpt or safetensors file.

To learn more about how to load single file weights, see the Load different Stable Diffusion formats loading guide.

FromSingleFileMixin

class diffusers.loaders.FromSingleFileMixin

< >

( )

Load model weights saved in the .ckpt format into a DiffusionPipeline.

from_single_file

< >

( pretrained_model_link_or_path **kwargs )

Parameters

  • pretrained_model_link_or_path (str or os.PathLike, optional) — Can be either:
    • A link to the .ckpt file (for example "https://huggingface.co/<repo_id>/blob/main/<path_to_file>.ckpt") on the Hub.
    • A path to a file containing all pipeline weights.
  • torch_dtype (str or torch.dtype, optional) — Override the default torch.dtype and load the model with another dtype.
  • force_download (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to force the (re-)download of the model weights and configuration files, overriding the cached versions if they exist.
  • cache_dir (Union[str, os.PathLike], optional) — Path to a directory where a downloaded pretrained model configuration is cached if the standard cache is not used.
  • resume_download (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to resume downloading the model weights and configuration files. If set to False, any incompletely downloaded files are deleted.
  • proxies (Dict[str, str], optional) — A dictionary of proxy servers to use by protocol or endpoint, for example, {'http': 'foo.bar:3128', 'http://hostname': 'foo.bar:4012'}. The proxies are used on each request.
  • local_files_only (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether to only load local model weights and configuration files or not. If set to True, the model won’t be downloaded from the Hub.
  • token (str or bool, optional) — The token to use as HTTP bearer authorization for remote files. If True, the token generated from diffusers-cli login (stored in ~/.huggingface) is used.
  • revision (str, optional, defaults to "main") — The specific model version to use. It can be a branch name, a tag name, a commit id, or any identifier allowed by Git.
  • use_safetensors (bool, optional, defaults to None) — If set to None, the safetensors weights are downloaded if they’re available and if the safetensors library is installed. If set to True, the model is forcibly loaded from safetensors weights. If set to False, safetensors weights are not loaded.

Instantiate a DiffusionPipeline from pretrained pipeline weights saved in the .ckpt or .safetensors format. The pipeline is set in evaluation mode (model.eval()) by default.

Examples:

>>> from diffusers import StableDiffusionPipeline

>>> # Download pipeline from huggingface.co and cache.
>>> pipeline = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_single_file(
...     "https://huggingface.co/WarriorMama777/OrangeMixs/blob/main/Models/AbyssOrangeMix/AbyssOrangeMix.safetensors"
... )

>>> # Download pipeline from local file
>>> # file is downloaded under ./v1-5-pruned-emaonly.ckpt
>>> pipeline = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_single_file("./v1-5-pruned-emaonly")

>>> # Enable float16 and move to GPU
>>> pipeline = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_single_file(
...     "https://huggingface.co/runwayml/stable-diffusion-v1-5/blob/main/v1-5-pruned-emaonly.ckpt",
...     torch_dtype=torch.float16,
... )
>>> pipeline.to("cuda")

FromOriginalVAEMixin

class diffusers.loaders.FromOriginalVAEMixin

< >

( )

Load pretrained AutoencoderKL weights saved in the .ckpt or .safetensors format into a AutoencoderKL.

from_single_file

< >

( pretrained_model_link_or_path **kwargs )

Parameters

  • pretrained_model_link_or_path (str or os.PathLike, optional) — Can be either:
    • A link to the .ckpt file (for example "https://huggingface.co/<repo_id>/blob/main/<path_to_file>.ckpt") on the Hub.
    • A path to a file containing all pipeline weights.
  • config_file (str, optional) — Filepath to the configuration YAML file associated with the model. If not provided it will default to: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CompVis/stable-diffusion/main/configs/stable-diffusion/v1-inference.yaml
  • torch_dtype (str or torch.dtype, optional) — Override the default torch.dtype and load the model with another dtype. If "auto" is passed, the dtype is automatically derived from the model’s weights.
  • force_download (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to force the (re-)download of the model weights and configuration files, overriding the cached versions if they exist.
  • cache_dir (Union[str, os.PathLike], optional) — Path to a directory where a downloaded pretrained model configuration is cached if the standard cache is not used.
  • resume_download (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to resume downloading the model weights and configuration files. If set to False, any incompletely downloaded files are deleted.
  • proxies (Dict[str, str], optional) — A dictionary of proxy servers to use by protocol or endpoint, for example, {'http': 'foo.bar:3128', 'http://hostname': 'foo.bar:4012'}. The proxies are used on each request.
  • local_files_only (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether to only load local model weights and configuration files or not. If set to True, the model won’t be downloaded from the Hub.
  • token (str or bool, optional) — The token to use as HTTP bearer authorization for remote files. If True, the token generated from diffusers-cli login (stored in ~/.huggingface) is used.
  • revision (str, optional, defaults to "main") — The specific model version to use. It can be a branch name, a tag name, a commit id, or any identifier allowed by Git.
  • image_size (int, optional, defaults to 512) — The image size the model was trained on. Use 512 for all Stable Diffusion v1 models and the Stable Diffusion v2 base model. Use 768 for Stable Diffusion v2.
  • scaling_factor (float, optional, defaults to 0.18215) — The component-wise standard deviation of the trained latent space computed using the first batch of the training set. This is used to scale the latent space to have unit variance when training the diffusion model. The latents are scaled with the formula z = z * scaling_factor before being passed to the diffusion model. When decoding, the latents are scaled back to the original scale with the formula: z = 1 / scaling_factor * z. For more details, refer to sections 4.3.2 and D.1 of the High-Resolution Image Synthesis with Latent Diffusion Models paper.
  • use_safetensors (bool, optional, defaults to None) — If set to None, the safetensors weights are downloaded if they’re available and if the safetensors library is installed. If set to True, the model is forcibly loaded from safetensors weights. If set to False, safetensors weights are not loaded.
  • kwargs (remaining dictionary of keyword arguments, optional) — Can be used to overwrite load and saveable variables (for example the pipeline components of the specific pipeline class). The overwritten components are directly passed to the pipelines __init__ method. See example below for more information.

Instantiate a AutoencoderKL from pretrained ControlNet weights saved in the original .ckpt or .safetensors format. The pipeline is set in evaluation mode (model.eval()) by default.

Make sure to pass both image_size and scaling_factor to from_single_file() if you’re loading a VAE from SDXL or a Stable Diffusion v2 model or higher.

Examples:

from diffusers import AutoencoderKL

url = "https://huggingface.co/stabilityai/sd-vae-ft-mse-original/blob/main/vae-ft-mse-840000-ema-pruned.safetensors"  # can also be local file
