Pixel-based VDMs can generate motion accurately aligned with the textual prompt but typically demand expensive computational costs in terms of time and GPU memory, especially when generating high-resolution videos. Latent-based VDMs are more resource-efficient because they work in a reduced-dimension latent space. But it is challenging for such small latent space (e.g., 64×40 for 256×160 videos) to cover rich yet necessary visual semantic details as described by the textual prompt.

To marry the strength and alleviate the weakness of pixel-based and latent-based VDMs, we introduce Show-1, an efficient text-to-video model that generates videos of not only decent video-text alignment but also high visual quality.

Model Details

This is the base model of Show-1 that generates videos with 8 keyframes at a resolution of 64x40. The model is finetuned from DeepFloyd/IF-I-L-v1.0 on the WebVid-10M and InternVid dataset.


Clone the GitHub repository and install the requirements:

git clone https://github.com/showlab/Show-1.git
pip install -r requirements.txt

Run the following command to generate a video from a text prompt. By default, this will automatically download all the model weights from huggingface.

python run_inference.py

You can also download the weights manually and change the pretrained_model_path in run_inference.py to run the inference.

git lfs install
