As art evolves and artists’ abilities grow, so must their creative tools.
NVIDIA Canvas, the free beta app and part of the NVIDIA Studio suite of apps and creative tools, has brought the GauGAN real-time paint tool to anyone with an NVIDIA RTX GPU. Artists use advanced AI to quickly transform simple brushstrokes into realistic landscape images, speeding up exploration of concepts and freeing up more time to visualize ideas.
The NVIDIA Canvas update released today, powered by the GauGAN2 AI model and NVIDIA RTX GPU Tensor cores, generates backgrounds with increased quality and 4x higher resolution, and adds five new paintable materials.
Updates to NVIDIA Canvas, the launch of NVIDIA Omniverse into general availability, and recently announced NVIDIA Studio products highlight all the goodness of Studio at CES.
A dramatic 4x increase in pixel resolution.
The NVIDIA Canvas update delivers even more lifelike images with better definition and fewer artifacts, adding significant photorealism, all in up to 1K pixel resolution for increased visual quality.
Exports can easily be integrated into existing creative workflows by exporting to Adobe Photoshop or an artist’s favorite creative application. Artists start in Canvas by sketching simple shapes and lines, then the AI model immediately fills the screen with real-world materials such as water, grass, snow, mountains and more for results breathtaking.
The update adds five new materials to create richer landscape environments: Straw, Flowers, Mud, Dirt, and Bushes. These new materials can be further customized with nine preset brushes that change the look and feel of the paint. Artists have the ability to upload their own images to create a one-of-a-kind background.
With Canvas’ new AI, the creative possibilities have become even more limitless.
