Google Launches Veo Video AI and Imagen 3 Models

Veo uses natural language and visual semantics to produce videos extending beyond one minute.


has introduced its latest AI media creation models, Veo and Imagen 3, at Google I/O 2024. Veo is designed to produce high-quality 1080p videos, while Imagen 3 is the company's newest text-to-image framework. These models aim to compete with OpenAI's Sora video model and Dall-E 3, which have gained prominence in AI-generated media.

Advanced Capabilities of Veo

Veo, according to Google, possesses an advanced understanding of natural language and visual semantics, enabling it to create videos that last over a minute. The AI can comprehend cinematic techniques, such as timelapse, and simulate real-world physics. Veo can generate videos from text, image, and video prompts, allowing for a versatile range of creative outputs. CEO Demis Hassabis mentioned that video results can be refined using additional prompts, enhancing the creative process.

To demonstrate Veo's capabilities, Google has partnered with Donald Glover and his creative studio, Gilga. In a promotional video, Glover and his team use text prompts to generate scenes like a convertible arriving at a European home and a sailboat gliding through the ocean. Glover emphasizes that the core of these tools is storytelling, suggesting that everyone can become a director with such technology.

Future of Veo in Content Creation

Google is exploring additional features to enable Veo to produce storyboards and longer scenes. The company is inviting select filmmakers and creators to experiment with the model to determine how it can best support creatives. Some Veo features will be available to select creators in a private preview inside VideoFX. Google plans to add some of Veo's capabilities to YouTube Shorts in the future.

Imagen 3 Enhances Text-to-Image Generation

Imagen 3, Google's latest text-to-image model, promises higher quality and more detailed photorealistic images with fewer artifacts. Google asserts that Imagen 3 handles text more effectively than its predecessors and can manage complex details from extended prompts. The model is expected to be a strong competitor to 's Dall-E 3, which is well-known for its capabilities in AI-generated imagery.

Music AI Sandbox for Recording Artists

In addition to Veo and Imagen 3, Google has introduced Music AI Sandbox, a set of tools aimed at recording artists to assist with song and beat creation. Artists like Wyclef Jean and Bjorn are collaborating with Google to test these tools. The Music AI Sandbox has already produced some intriguing demonstrations, although specific details are limited.

Google's new reflect the company's substantial investment in AI technology, aiming to lead the next significant advancement in computing. Veo is currently available within Google's VideoFX tool for select creators and will soon be integrated into YouTube Shorts and other products. Google has produced several video generation models over the last few years, including Phenaki, Imagen Video, and Lumiere.

Competition with OpenAI

OpenAI is already pitching its own AI video generator Sora to Hollywood and planning to release it to the public later this year. OpenAI may make the Sora model available directly within applications like Adobe Premiere Pro. This competitive landscape underscores the rapid evolution and growing importance of AI in media creation.
