7. Loopback Wave Script Settings (Stable Diffusion)

Next, we will choose the "Loopback Wave" script from the Script dropdown menu and configure the necessary settings as demonstrated below:

  • Frames: 100
  • Frames Per Wave: 20
  • Max additional denoise: 0.7
  • Frames per Second: 10
  • Video Quality (crf): 40
  • Video encoding: VP9 (webm)

Displayed below is an image showcasing all the settings utilized in generating the video: 33-image-to-video-with-loopback-wave-and-roop-extension-stable-diffusion-a1111-margot-robbie-barbie-movie-beautifull-image-settings-loopback-wave-settings-configuration.png

As you may have noticed, we also offer some prompt changes in the waveback loop script. In the Prompt Changes text box, you have the option to modify the prompt at a specific frame. Just input the frame number where you want the transition to happen, followed by :: and then your desired prompt.

Please note that the video is generated with 100 frames, and each wave comprises 20 frames. To ensure a high-quality video, it is crucial to make prompt changes at the same intervals as the frames per wave, which, in this case, is every 20 steps.

Even if you have no intention of altering the prompt, we recommend populating the prompt change text box with the same base prompt used to generate the images. This practice will generate new images at specific frames, leading to a higher-quality background rather than a faded out, blurry one.

Having everything set up, you are now able to move forward with generating the video.
