Stable Cascade

This model is built upon the Würstchen architecture and its main difference to other models like Stable Diffusion is that it is working at a much smaller latent space. Why is this important? The smaller the latent space, the faster you can run inference and the cheaper the training becomes. How small is the latent space? Stable Diffusion uses a compression factor of 8, resulting in a 1024x1024 image being encoded to 128x128. Stable Cascade achieves a compression factor of 42, meaning that it is possible to encode a 1024x1024 image to 24x24, while maintaining crisp reconstructions. The text-conditional model is then trained in the highly compressed latent space. Previous versions of this architecture, achieved a 16x cost reduction over Stable Diffusion 1.5.

Therefore, this kind of model is well suited for usages where efficiency is important. Furthermore, all known extensions like finetuning, LoRA, ControlNet, IP-Adapter, LCM etc. are possible with this method as well.

The original codebase can be found at Stability-AI/StableCascade.

Model Overview

Stable Cascade consists of three models: Stage A, Stage B and Stage C, representing a cascade to generate images, hence the name “Stable Cascade”.

Stage A & B are used to compress images, similar to what the job of the VAE is in Stable Diffusion. However, with this setup, a much higher compression of images can be achieved. While the Stable Diffusion models use a spatial compression factor of 8, encoding an image with resolution of 1024 x 1024 to 128 x 128, Stable Cascade achieves a compression factor of 42. This encodes a 1024 x 1024 image to 24 x 24, while being able to accurately decode the image. This comes with the great benefit of cheaper training and inference. Furthermore, Stage C is responsible for generating the small 24 x 24 latents given a text prompt.

The Stage C model operates on the small 24 x 24 latents and denoises the latents conditioned on text prompts. The model is also the largest component in the Cascade pipeline and is meant to be used with the StableCascadePriorPipeline

The Stage B and Stage A models are used with the StableCascadeDecoderPipeline and are responsible for generating the final image given the small 24 x 24 latents.

There are some restrictions on data types that can be used with the Stable Cascade models. The official checkpoints for the StableCascadePriorPipeline do not support the torch.float16 data type. Please use torch.bfloat16 instead.

In order to use the torch.bfloat16 data type with the StableCascadeDecoderPipeline you need to have PyTorch 2.2.0 or higher installed. This also means that using the StableCascadeCombinedPipeline with torch.bfloat16 requires PyTorch 2.2.0 or higher, since it calls the StableCascadeDecoderPipeline internally.

If it is not possible to install PyTorch 2.2.0 or higher in your environment, the StableCascadeDecoderPipeline can be used on its own with the torch.float16 data type. You can download the full precision or bf16 variant weights for the pipeline and cast the weights to torch.float16.

enable_model_cpu_offload

< >

( gpu_id: Optional = None device: Union = 'cuda' )

Offloads all models to CPU using accelerate, reducing memory usage with a low impact on performance. Compared to enable_sequential_cpu_offload, this method moves one whole model at a time to the GPU when its forward method is called, and the model remains in GPU until the next model runs. Memory savings are lower than with enable_sequential_cpu_offload, but performance is much better due to the iterative execution of the unet.

enable_sequential_cpu_offload

< >

( gpu_id: Optional = None device: Union = 'cuda' )

Offloads all models (unet, text_encoder, vae, and safety checker state dicts) to CPU using 🤗 Accelerate, significantly reducing memory usage. Models are moved to a torch.device('meta') and loaded on a GPU only when their specific submodule’s forward method is called. Offloading happens on a submodule basis. Memory savings are higher than using enable_model_cpu_offload, but performance is lower.
